9 Tips for Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019


I can’t believe that it’s almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019! What is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale you ask? Unlike most sales that place discounts on merchandise that is going to be out of season, this sale is offering steep discounts on brand new items for the fall and winter! I personally love to shop the Nordstrom sale for basic pieces that I know I am going to need for the upcoming season. It’s so easy to just spend your hard-earned money on a bunch of pieces during this sale but I think it’s important to make a budget and stick to it.

Some of the most popular brands during this sale are Zella, BP, Barefoot Dreams, Natori, Gibson, Madewell, and Leith.

    Making a shopping list is a great tip. We should also be aware of what we already have, so we can shop more effectively.

    Oh my goodness, thanks for the tips! Sales are always exciting but honestly, I tend to avoid them for a lot of reasons. Mainly because budgeting is insanely hard when there are a lot of pretty stuff in front of you, haha! Definitely agree with making a list and sticking to it when shopping though, it helps a ton! 👌🏻
