The Anniversary Sale is Nordstrom’s BIGGEST Sale of the year.
It gets LOTS of HYPE and for good reason….there are incredible deals on SO MANY THINGS.
But shopping the Anniversary Sale can get a little overwhelming.
- What do I buy?
- Is this really a good deal?
- When can I shop?
- How can I get the most bang for my buck?
What do I buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Most of us shop sales to save money. And in this economy people are really watching prices and trying to save.
Do an Inventory
So before the sale….. do an inventory of your closet:
- Is there anything that I want to add to my summer wardrobe?
- What wardrobe basics need to be added, replaced? Long and short sleeved tees? Cardigans? Athletic shoes? Denim? Lingerie? I always replace my Wacoal bras during the sale.
- Do I need to replenish makeup or skincare?
- What about household basics like sheets and towels?
- Is there a splurge item that I’ve been waiting to go on sale like a piece of jewelry or a designer bag?
- What gift giving occasions do I have coming up?
Make a list
After your inventory, make a list of the items that you are shopping for and set a budget for what you want to spend on each.
Divide your list into “must-haves” and “would be nice to have”
Shop the preview
This year the preview starts June 29, 2022. Shopping for Nordstrom Cardholders starts as early as July 6, depending on your cardholder status.
