The biggest question you have all had for me regarding the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is what products that you should be watching for to stock up on. I stock up on a few things for myself and my littles every year and then when we either out grow or run out of something we have another one or two to get us until the next time it goes on sale. While we might spend more money during the sale to stock up, we end up saving money because we aren’t buying them at full price when we run out/out grow things.
Once the sale starts I will link everything that I have stocked up on!
I am excited to share with you the things that I will be watching for to stock up on this year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale from beauty products to basic tees and even shoes! These are all things that we have used for years and that I know that we will run out of and need to have another one on hand.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Must Haves
|| FACE WASH ||
If you have watched my stories you know that I love to use a few different face/skin care brands and products. I love to switch back and forth depending on what my skin needs. My go to face wash is always Tula & Purity. I don’t remember for sure if Tula products were in the sale or not, but I did snag a big Purity set. It came with a big massive bottle of face wash I still am not out of yet, some travel sized ones, and some trial products. It was seriously the best deal and something that I will be stocking up on again for sure this year!
|| LIPSTICK/MAKEUP PRODUCTS ||
Makeup products during the sale are amazing. They generally are kits of makeup that are your favorite brands from MAC to Bobbi Brown and so much more. I love to snag a few different sets and then put them up so when I run out of eyeshadow or something I can just pull out a new set!
|| BASIC TEES ||
I stock up on BP basic tees during the sale. They generally are a really amazing price like $12 or something crazy like that. If they come in white or black I buy 2 of each color and then 1 of the other colors I love and know that I will wear. These tees have held up really well and I feel like they really surpass my expectations because they are only $12.
|| BOOTIES ||
I buy all my boots for winter during the sale. I buy a couple pair for fall and then some different ones like over the knee boots for winter time. I really try to think ahead and to pick things for both seasons and sometimes even spring because then I am set and I scored everything on a really good deal rather than paying full price for something in a few months.
|| KIDS CLOTHES ||
I am queen of buying 2 sizes in a million different things. If there are two shirts or jackets I love I will buy one for him during the fall and early winter and then the other in a bigger size for late winter and early spring. Things like jackets, jeans, and long sleeve shirts are perfect to get in two different sizes because your littles can wear them in the spring too!
|| KIDS SHOES ||
This is another thing that I am guilty of buying two sizes in. I always have King stocked up in shoes for his next size so when he out grows his current size we aren’t running around paying full price for new shoes. I really only stock up on tennis shoes and dress shoes for him and not sandals because he wears the other ones year round so if they don’t fit during one season I still know they will fit him sometime and I didn’t spend money for them not to fit at the right time.
|| HANDBAGS ||
I buy myself two really nice bags during the sale. I use one right away and put the other one up for spring and summer time and then it is like a little gift/surprise to myself when those seasons roll around. Sometimes Zach and I will even think ahead to Christmas or other holidays and buy one for my gift then and just put it up until that time rolls around.
I hope this helps you to think outside the box when it comes to the sale and knowing what to buy a few of and what to pass on. I try not to buy pieces or things that are trendy and stick with the basics/classics so I know that they will still be in style when the time comes!
