With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a little over 2 weeks away, I wanted to share how I shop the sale in advance so you can plan! I know we don’t all plan to shop at once, so I’m here to help you decide what you need first and how to make sure you get what you need without overspending!
I shop the sale the same way every year by using this checklist! It hasn’t failed me yet, and I hope it offers you a great guide for shopping as well! This week, I shared all about what you need to know before shopping the sale, so check that out and then be sure to check out the 2018 catalog to preview what will be in the sale. Please keep in mind that there are SO MANY other things that will be on sale that are not included in the catalog. I’m telling you, the reasons are endless to shop this sale!
If you haven’t applied for the Nordstrom Card yet, now is the time! You will get $40 in Nordstrom Notes to help you shop the sale once approved. This is your golden ticket in to shopping the sale early, so it’s a MUST if you don’t have one yet.
Unfortunately, Nordstrom no longer offers the Nordstrom Debit Card (which is what I have) so you will have to apply for the credit card and be approved. I know you may be weary of a credit card (errrr I hear my husband saying JUST SAY NO to credit cards) and I can relate! Do what is best for YOU, but do know that if you don’t have the card then you will have to wait until July 19th to shop the sale.
Here is my checklist for shopping the sale:
These are some of my favorites from last year. Just to give you an idea, jeans that are regularly $64 will be marked down to $41 and $205 will be marked down to $129. These same jeans will return to regular price after the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is over, so shop it while you can get it on sale!
I typically buy my workout/running shoes during this sale because they are new releases but are on sale! Last year, I got some really great Nike shoes that I STILL wear!
This is a HUGE one. You’re going to literally kick yourself (well, bootless…) if you don’t buy boots in this sale. I usually buy one pair of booties, one pair of OTK boots, and one pair of heeled boots.
If you only get ONE THING in this sale; let it be Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. They are always marked down in the sale and it’s important to snag these on sale because they NEVER go back on sale! GET THE LEGGINGS!!! Zella Leggings are a MUST, too!
Stock up on those dresses for transitioning to fall. This is probably the least on my check list as they aren’t usually as expensive as those big ticket items, but still important to look!
This is the time to snag a designer bag ON SALE! Bags don’t typically go on sale, so if you see one you LOVE, it might be time to treat yourself!
My favorite perfume is going to be in the sale – Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb! Definitely grab something and save for Christmas if you don’t need it now!
The T3 blowdryer and wands are usually on sale! I will definitely be updating yall when the sale goes live what exactly is in the sale but there are so many good things that go on sale!
I hope I’m not overloading you with info, but I just want to be a great resource for you as you are shopping it this year! This is my third year to cover the sale and I feel like I’ve learned a little bit from each year. Look forward to oversharing, try-ons, LOTS of favorites from each category and too much talk about Nordstrom Sale! If you don’t love it, you might want to tune out for 3 weeks! HA!
Who’s ready for July 12th!?! Be prepared by reading my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts!
