$300 To Shop The NSALE: What We Would Buy

July 13, 2023


Team LIY

The 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here, and we’ve been elbow deep in trying the pieces so you don’t have to! Here’s the deal – while items are super marked down, some can still be a bit pricey. HOWEVER, there are SO many great items at more budget friendly price points in the sale as well. If we walked in to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with $300 – here’s what we would buy…

Don’t forget to join the LIY Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Facebook Group where there are nightly giveaways happening! PS You can check out Erin’s FULL Hit’s & Misses blog post in one spot right here!

PSS Consider THIS your NSale headquarters, with all the content in one spot!

If you have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale already, you may have missed a thing or two, but have no fear – you have until August 6th to purchase the products at a major discount. After that, prices will go back up to normal.

  1. Anything that you love and want for yourself, add to your wish list and check out once the sale is live for your card level [reminder: login into your Nordstrom account to determine your shopping status! If you’re not a cardholder, it will be open to everybody on July 17th! If it isn’t currently available, things are always coming in and out of stock, so check back often!
  2. Remember that Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns! Because of this, I would recommend ordering any of the things you are unsure of, to make sure that you can get it at the sale price and return it if it doesn’t work!
  3. Some of the items I mention may currently be out of stock, but check back often for restocks! We’ll also be notifying you of restocks over on our Facebook page and #NSALE group [highly recommend joining the group for a ton of helpful info and nightly giveaways!] 
  4. Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 8/6, things go quick so don’t be like N*Sync and have to say “bye, bye, bye” to everything before it’s gone – shop early!
  5. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you still have questions, ask away below and I’ll answer right here so check back! For more Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, click here!
