I learned a valuable lesson when I was about seven. I vividly remember telling my mom about something I needed when she gently corrected me and asked me whether I actually needed what I was asking for or if I simply wanted. Hmph.
It is still something that consistently crosses my mind but now I like to evaluate my purchases by asking “is it worth it?” Sure, it may be on sale, but is it still worth the price that is being asked?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an easy time to go a little haywire. I get so excited about the lower prices and the merchandise is all so tempting that I need to really ask myself: “Do I need it?” and “is it worth it?”
To compartmentalize my subconscious, I made two lists that will hopefully help you in your Nordstrom Anniversary quest. My must-have list for the basics, aka the “needs”, include loungewear, bras (seriously the best! Pretty yet practical.) and a new brush set. My must-have list for the trendy pieces, aka the “wants”, include wide-leg denim and the cutest pair of flats you’ll wear all season long, which are very much worth it in my humble opinion.
Nordstrom Anniversary pre-sale started today, July 9th, so if you are a cardholder you can shop now! If you aren’t, these picks will be available to you starting July 17th.
What is is your Anniversary Sale shopping bag?
