Hello, hello, my loves!! This week marks the beginning of what might be the best sale of the entire year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens once a year, and honestly, it stresses me out!! Even if I don’t really need anything at the moment, I feel some sort of pressure to buy things while so many items are on sale.
If you don’t know much about the sale, it consists of only brand new items at discounted prices! The pieces will go to full price when the sale ends. This is SO awesome because this is the opposite of how sales usually work! It’s definitely the best time to grab some items you have been needing or are ready to splurge on.
Like I said, I get stressed because there are seriously so many great things on sale! In the past, I’ve made rash decisions (lol) about things I don’t actually need, just because they’re on sale. This year, I want to take a good look at my closet to see what I really need! I have been wanting some more tees & a quality pair of jeans. I also am seriously lacking in the workout clothes department! I’d suggest looking in your closet to remind yourself what could use an update.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale also has sooo many things for sale other than clothing. I’ll be setting up a new apartment this fall, so I’m for sure looking at the home items! The sale of course also has beauty items that are so rarely at discounted prices!
SO! How are we supposed to prepare for this madness? Like I said, first take a look at what your inventory could use. Then, consider setting a fun little budget for yourself so that you don’t end up regretting any big purchases! Finally, make a list of specific items that you want super badly. Since this sale is so famous, the hot items sell out QUICKLY. Last year, I think I checked back almost everyday for a sweater I wanted to come back into stock. Ya gotta do it!!
In order to help y’all sort this mess out, I created this printable so that you can feel a bit more organized! I’ll definitely be using this when the sale opens 🙂
BTW, when is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
July 12th – July 18th (Nordstrom cardholders only)

I really hope this helps you to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year! Check back in a few days to see what items I’m looking to purchase!
