If you’re a shopper, you’ve waited all year long for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this sale offers amazing markdowns on new to market items — so now is the time to stock up! Now, I know home goods tend to be more of a luxury item than a necessity, but I’ve rounded up my top picks for every category in the home and the best part, everything is under $100!! So, let’s shop…
Now, I must confess that I’ve never really paid much attention to this sale until my good friend Erin Busbee turned me onto the event this year. She’s a wardrobe stylist who has her own blog called Busbee Style where she focuses on fashion ideas for busy women juggling life over 40 — if that’s you please go check her out and see her Nordstrom fashion picks too. 

How to Shop the Sale

If you’re new to the sale as well, there are a few things you need to know before you shop!
1. Early Access
Prior to the sale becoming public on July 21st, Nordstrom gives early access to their cardholders. Today is the last day of early access, so if it’s too late this year to get early access I recommend doing so in the future by applying for the card so you avoid the crowds an sold out items. 
2. Shop Online 
I find this is the best way to shop to avoid the crowds. Some items are online sold online. When shopping online you can still chose in store pick up so you can see the merchandise before heading home to avoid returns. 
3. Not sure what to purchase? Use an In-Store Personal Shopper
Nordstrom stores offer free personal shoppers. So, if you’re in store take advantage of this service to get the most bang for your buck. Book an appointment here.
