How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (and what’s on my shopping list!)

summer style sales

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here! I’ve bought one thing (yes, one) from the sale last year and was pretty happy with my purchase. I’ve been interested in this sale for years but admittedly, decided not to shop as even the bargains were still a bit too expensive for my budget. Last summer David and I were saving for our wedding and the year before that, I wasn’t making close to what I make now. But this year, I have a bit more wiggle room in my budget and I’m excited to see what they have on sale!

Nordstrom sale Shopping Tips

Like I said, I haven’t shopped the sale much before BUT from what I’ve gleaned from other people, the best way to shop the sale is to get early access. How do you get that? Applying for a Nordstrom credit card. I rarely take out credit cards as they can be bad news bears for anyone who likes to shop *raises hand* but unfortunately, that’s the only way you can get access to the sale July 12.

When you do get early access, you get to shop before everyone else does. This means you get first dibs on hot items that typically go fast! I’ll be sharing my favorites once the sale starts this weekend! My biggest tip is to make a list of what you really want or need in your wardrobe for this fall, and get those items first. Nordstrom always offers free shipping, so if you think your must-haves will go fast, purchase them immediately because the shipping is FREE!

What’s on My List

Ugh this is a hard one. I’m definitely shopping on a budget because we still have a few things here and there to pay for before our wedding in October. So my plan is to find items under $50 that fit what I need. No “bargain” $100 sweaters for this gal. After going through my closet, my fall wardrobe needs are leather leggings, over the knee boots, denim jacket, and a cardigan. We’ll see if I can score those for less than my $50 budget per item! Wish me luck!
