Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Get ready for the sale of the year! The Nordstroms Anniversary Sale is one of the best sales of the year. It is different than other sales because it is new items. For a limited time Nordstrom discounts current and new pre-Fall items. It's not like most other department store sales when you have to wait for the end of the season to get items on sale. Once the sale is over they go back up to full price and you'll regret not scooping these items. You can get all the great fall basics (booties, sweaters, jeans and outerwear) for an amazing price. Last year I snagged this Tory Burch crossbody for half off!

With the scorching temperatures, you may think it is too soon to think about Fall items. My tips below will help you make the right shopping list and score some major deals!

If you have a Nordstrom's credit or debit card you will get access to the sale on July 14, which is 8 days earlier than the public! The public gets access on July 22. If you have ever thought about getting a card I would recommend doing it now. Once the sale hits, I'll have a post of all of my favorite items from it. 

1. Check out the Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale Catalog here! This isn't all of the sale items but it will give you an idea of what types of items will be on sale. 

2. Scan your Closet - Look thru your Fall and Winter wardrobe. Assess what you need or want to add to your wardrobe. Are there items that need to be replaced? Do you need more of any certain items? Was there something last year that you didn't get that you regret?

3. Make a List. After looking thru your wardrobe decide what you need to stock up on for the Fall. Do you need more denim? Do you want any new boots or booties? Did you wish you had purchased more sweaters last Fall? What do you wear the most of for fall? Have you been wanting to invest in a designer purse? Use these questions to come up with what types of items you are searching for. The sale can be overwhelming so narrowing down a list can be helpful.

4. Budget - It's not my favorite word but is very important for this sale. Decide how much you are willing to spend on each item on your list. The 50% off can tempt you to spend more than you mean, so know your budget beforehand.

5. Consider a splurge item - This may seem to go against the other tips but consider it. Not many times can you find designer items up to 50% off.  If you have wanted a designer purse, denim or coat this would be the time to do it. 

What will you be looking for at the Nordstroms Anniversary Sale?
