Isn't she gorgeous One of my two #NSale purchases .. Trying to keep it at 2 wish me luck! @shopstyle @shopstyleit #SHOPSTYLEit #how2wearit #phonecase #nordstromanniversarysale #nordstrom

The above photo is one of the two items I got from the Nordstrom Sale last year.  To be honest, all the hype around the sale seemed over-rated to me but this year I feel WAY more prepared and am regretting having “bashed” the sale in previous years.  I have learned the error of my ways and in turn want to help y’all out so that you’re able to stretch your dollar as far as you can with the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  Which is the name of the game around here!  So here are a few key points and tips to help YOU prepare for and shop the #NSale!

  1. The reason there is so much hype around this sale and why you should shop it is, the items on sale are fall and winter collections.  This means you can buy stuff for the out-months, not a previous season which is how sales typically work.
  2. Take a look through your closet, clean out what you don’t wear, doesn’t fit, or is just old and needs updating.  Then make a list of things you want to fill in those gaps you just cleaned out.  For instance, I just did a clean out and discovered I need a cargo vest, nude flats, and work tops to wear under blazers and cardigans.
  3. Browse the catalog to see what’s available!
  4. Set a budget!! When we see the words “SALE” sometimes it makes us go overboard on our purchases.  We end up buying things we didn’t even need.  Be realistic with your budget and remember, there’s no need to go into debt over a sale 🙂
  5. Sign-up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card!  Card holders can shop the sale early ((July 14-21)) and then it opens to the public ((July 22-Aug 7)).  Like I said in point #4, there’s no need to go into debt over a sale, so in my opinion the debit card is your best option!  Just like the Target RED card, it links straight to your bank account and you don’t have to worry about paying a bill.
