On your mark. Get set. Go. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale [NSale] is here! If you are familiar with the sale, you can skip to the key dates below. If not, welcome! I prioritize this sale a little differently. I compare, organize and make my picks with a budget in mind. If you are looking for the $1,800 caviar skincare suggestion, don’t stop here (lol)!

Why is this sale a thing? It’s one of the few sales a year that happens before the season starts. Think boots and sweaters at the beginning of the season, not at the end.

This sale opens in tiers. This year, everyone was able to preview the sale on July 6th. We poured through page after page looking for the best deals. I love a good hunt 🙂 Then, the sale will open in stages, depending on your status. I have NO.STATUS (again, lol), so I will be shopping on July 28th when the sale is open to the public. Stuff sells quickly and even though I have a wish list, I know I will probably only get about half of what is listed.

If you are like me and shopping on the day it is open to everyone, there are a few things you can do to prepare to give yourself the best possible chance of getting your picks. First, create an account with Nordstrom. If you have an account with Nordstrom Rack, that will work too. Signing-up is free, you can do that here. (not the credit card, just a sign-in account).

Next, you want to create a wish list. For example, if you see a deal that you are interested in on my Nordstrom Sale Beauty Picks blog post, click the photo in the post and then Add To Wish List on the Nordstrom site. It will create a one-of-a-kind wish list just for you. You can stack up all your top choices and then be ready to shop on July 28th. The sale opens online at 12am(pst) and 2am(cst) and 3am(eastern). Even though the sale runs through August 8th, don’t wait! The date that the sale opens to everyone will be one of the busiest.

I will be posting my wish list and what made its way into my cart on July 28th! Also, my suggestions on what to skip and where to get a look for less! Until then, check out my Nordstrom Beauty picks here.

Until Next Time!
