Meal prep isn’t the most exciting chore, but I did find some things to make the process a little cuter. If you’d rather keep out of the kitchen, there’s some nice-looking home décor on sale, like a geometric-print blanket and a magnetic key holder. And dozens of Strategist-approved beauty products are up to 40 percent off in Ulta’s Fall Haul sale. (It’s almost like they knew we launched a new beauty newsletter today.)

Bentgo Classic Lunch Box

Packing lunch is (slightly) less of a chore when you’ve got this cute bento-style box to put it in.

A set of little blobby candles that are almost too cute to burn.

This thick but nongreasy body butter from the Body Shop is on sale in Ulta’s Fall Haul in a variety of scents — including coconut, mango, almond milk, and (my favorite) satsuma.

For silky-smooth heels, one Strategist staffer swears Soap & Glory’s Heel Genius foot cream has rid her heels of “dry cracks and smoothed over calluses in a way no professional could.” (I’m also a fan.)

Rio’s tried-and-true drugstore dry shampoo helps remove excess oil while giving her “that nice, elusive ‘beachy waves’ effect.”

Our favorite hair oil for 4C hair contains more than 30 oils — including jojoba, rosemary, safflower, tea tree, and biotin — and can be used daily or as a split-end treatment.

In today’s installment of cheap (but nice) things from expensive brands: a pretty way to position your spatulas and spoons while cooking, now 30 percent off.

If you’re more minimalist, here’s an option that’s just $9.
