Did you go?
To the Nordstrom Anniversary sale?
The sale is still going strong and with close attention there are some good opportunities to be had.
Sales can be a little like yesterday’s lunch; they lose their appeal once they are enjoyed. Best to get in, conquer and leave in triumph.
I break my sales shopping into two parts and always apply the same Do and Don’t rules to my buying. Whether I am searching beauty, accessories or clothing, I follow the same thought process.
The first stage, re-assessing and replacing some of the classics, has been successful and now I am looking for a few bits and pieces in a whole variety of categories.
My next search is beauty; this year I haven’t found a huge amount of bargains but enough.
Then I check on the accessories; the bags, the luggage and any of the practical pieces I could do with smartening up a bit.
I take a swing around the jackets and coats.
And lastly a dip into the lingerie/shape wear. I am looking for pieces I know work and I need.
A random wander in many ways, but this way I end up with what I need at a fraction of the price; a checklist of sorts.
Done and done. xv
