Beach season is nearly over, but if you want to prepare for next year, I can’t endorse the Sport-Brella Beach Umbrella highly enough. I bought this thing for about $55 last summer, but today only, Woot’s selling them for just $35 shipped, the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Unlike a traditional umbrella, this model digs into the sand with a series of stakes to provide a full canopy shelter that’s big enough for two chairs and a cooler. Once you figure out how to set it up, it only takes about 5-10 minutes, and you’ll feel like beach royalty for the rest of the day in your private oasis of shade. [Sport-Brella, $35]
