Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: 10 Items that Have Me Drooling!

NORDSTROM -  Shop the Anniversary Sale through August

We shared late last week that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now in progress! This is a huge sale with a lot going on, so I decided to spend some time checking it out this morning and seeing what caught my eye. For fun, I decided to come up with a list of 10 items that I’m totally drooling over (it was hard to limit it… but I managed!).

As with any sale, selection and sizing may go quickly, so I encourage you to shop early for the best selection!

Zella Live-in Leggings: $33.90 (reg. $52)
These are just amazing! I own a pair of Zella Leggings and they are very high quality. Don’t just take my opinion – these leggings have an average 5-star customer rating after nearly 2500 reviews! Wow!

Best Back to School Prices: Comparison of Store Sales

Find the best back to school supplies prices happening right now - side-by-side store comparison

Wondering what the best prices on school supplies are this week? Wonder no more! Once again, I’ve teamed with bloggers from across the country to provide you with a very handy price round-up tool. This means, at any given week during the next two months (through August 21st), you can come here and know where to shop to get the best deals on the supplies on your kids’ lists!

I am excited to be teaming up for this effort in 2016 as I did not in 2015 and sorely missed giving you deals in this format.

Updated: for the week of 7/24-7/30

Here’s how it works:

      • You have a few options for accessing the comparison list: 1) Head to this Google Doc (7/24), 2) download this week’s 2016 Back-to-School Price Comparison Chart – 7_24 School Supply Deals  (7/24), or 3) just use the embedded list down this post.
      • You’ll see an extensive list of school supplies running down the document (scissors, pens, backpacks, calculators, notebooks and much more). You’ll then see a side-by-side comparison of the advertised deals happening in the stores this week.
      • Stores we’re tallying deals for this year include: CVS, Dollar General, Office Depot/Office Max, Rite Aid, Staples, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart. (Note: I also cover Fred Meyer on my weekly matchups, but as this is a regional store, it’s not included in the comparison list above.)
      • Green highlighting indicates this is the lowest price this week for that item. When dealing with multi-pack items, highlights are the lowest per unit price (even if it means spending more money).
      • You’ll also note that the Doc has a “Lowest price of the 2016 season so far” to give you an idea of the lowest price we’ll likely see all season for that item. If you’re trying to time an item for the absolute best price, this may be a helpful indicator.
      • Some of the items on the list may indicate there is a coupon or rebate involved to obtain that price. For the details, scroll down to the related blog post for that store that week to get the full scoop.

Need more guidance?

I’ve written about identifying good stock up prices as well as general tips and tricks for back to school shopping (I will be updating this post this week). You might also wish to check out my Back to School Central page.

The Best Target Back-to-School Deals (updated for: 7/24 – 7/30)

The Best Target Back to School Deals: Updated Weekly through August!

I’m excited this year to once again be teaming up with bloggers from around the country to provide you with the best school supply deals at a number of nationally-based chain stores this year. In brief, here’s how it works: each weekend through August 21st, I’ll be contributing the best Target school supply deals. Each Monday, I’ll share the compilation post. This resource is just awesome, and you’ll be able to quickly and easily see all the best deals happening in one place!

If you’re just getting started with your back to school shopping, make sure to check out my post on tips and price points for the 2016 season.

Before I start today’s first Target, I want to make you aware of several different ways you can save while shopping at Target:

  • Target printable coupons. Target offers both store and manufacturer coupons here!
  • Target Cartwheel. You can use these discounts on top of other coupons and sales. I love that right now there is a “Back to School” category so you can locate the relevant discounts even faster.
  • Target RedCard. Use the Target credit OR debit card to save an additional 5% on qualifying purchases.

In looking at the Target ad for this week (7/24 – 7/30), the deals are kind of light this week. However, I’d fully expect we’d see quite a few more deals in the store. I’ll do my best to make a trek out early this week and report on what I’m finding.

Fred Meyer: Earn 4X Fuel Points for Every $25 Spent on Gift Cards

Fuel Rewards at Fred Meyer: Earn 4X on Gift Card Purchases

One of the reasons I love shopping at Fred Meyer is the fuel savings! I find it really adds up quickly, and I’m always excited to see how big my discount is when I show up at the pump. (If you’re not familiar with the program, read my post from a couple years ago which breaks it down for you.)


For a limited time only, you can earn 4x fuel points on participating gift cards at Fred Meyer! This means you’ll earn 100 fuel points for every $25 on gift cards you spend (as opposed to 25 fuel points). Suppose you end up purchasing $100 in gift cards. This translates into 400 fuel points and a $0.40 per gallon saving at the pump! (Head to the Fred Meyer Fuel Rewards page for more of the nuts and bolts of how it all works.) Read More…
