So everyone else and their mother is currently shopping the Nordstrom sale or #NSALE and while I really love a lot of what I’m seeing, I don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on only a few items! Yes, many of the items are discounted and about 50% off, but it’s still a little pricey for me. Anywho there are more sales around the bend like the Amazon Prime Day.
