Smart Way To Save Money This Memorial Day

32 total views

Memorial Day is upon us and with it, a record-breaking number of sales from most of your favorite brands. Rather than go crazy buying things just because they’re on sale…only to regret it later… here are a few things to keep in mind that may save you money this Memorial Day Weekend.

Let’s remember that we celebrate Memorial Day to honor those who gave their lives to protect our freedom.

Check your basics

These are the workhorses you wear several times a week. Do your white tee shirts look dingy? Are your summer sandals looking downtrodden? If they could use a refresh, check the sales for just those items. Try to avoid the chino’s you don’t need that are so discounted they seem free 🙂

What did you wear the heck out of last year?

If you wore shorts more days than not last summer and you need some replacements, by all means, go shopping. If that summer skirt never saw the light of day, do not fall for another one, no matter how affordable it seems.

Skincare and beauty products You Use on repeat

Sales are the perfect time to stock up on products you know that you love and finish on a regular basis. Why pay full price if you don’t have to?

What not to buy at the Memorial Day Sales

That 4th pair of basic white pants. Don’t get in the habit of buying the same item repeatedly when the ones you already own are in great shape. It’s better to spend more and own better quality pieces you adore.

I will have more sale updates for you as the weekend goes on, but for today, the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale is here with up to 60% off. Here’s what caught my eye.

This Caslon striped hoodie and most all their other soft cotton tees are seriously reduced and a great value. I bought this one.

If you haven’t updated your summer handbag, and you’re due for one, Nordstrom has some super cute options marked way down.

Some beauty on sale

These UGGS are 50% off and will be perfect for someone next winter and a smart way to start Christmas shopping early.
