Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Ultimate NSALE Shopping Checklist

July 11, 2021

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is equal parts amazing and daunting. With hundreds of pages of sale items, it is hard to know where to start which is why I had this idea. Why not create the ultimate NSALE shopping checklist with recommendations for each item? After almost a decade of shopping this sale (and helping you all shop it too), I have learned the key items that you will never regret adding to cart. But here is the thing. You don’t need it all, so it’s best to use this checklist to fill the holes you have in your personal wardrobe and to get a head start on some holiday shopping. Yes, you heard me correctly. Ok let’s get to it….
