Sounds weird, but I'm basically in an LTR with Nordstrom. We go way back, and every time I set foot in the store, I work my way around the shoe department to the shelves of bedding and home decor, soaking up the breakout trends and picking out my favorite things. While my debit card doesn't appreciate being swiped nonstop, it doesn't mind when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on — which is happening as I type.
Normally, I tackle this sale with my mom and sister — all of us with a mint chocolate chip Ice Storm from the EBar in hand. This year while I'm away from home, I've been spending hours shopping the sale online.
I know Nordstrom is a little (well, super) expensive, which is why I'm invested in picking out the best home items from its sale this year. Whether you're decorating your dorm or outfitting your first apartment after leaving home, you won't have an empty cart after browsing these picks. I've divvied it up between splurge vs. save buys. If you just got a li'l birthday money or you're really budget-conscious this month, there is a luxe pick and a more affordable one.
Nordy Club members had early access, but since July 17, everyone has been granted entry to the online and in-store discounts. The sale ends August 7 this year, so don't sit this one out. Let's take a look...

Team RH is a big advocate for owning a lot of throw blankets. With the number of styles, colors, and materials out there, you'll probably find more than one to add to your rental space. They're easy to style and — obviously — extremely cozy.

A handful of stars, like Madison Beer and Chrissy Teigen, love Barefoot Dreams blankets. Yes, the price is high, but if you want a touch of luxury in your apartment, it's worth grabbing one of these buttery soft throws while it's discounted.

We like soft things here at Real Homes, and this Ugg sleep accessories set is the definition. I can already imagine how plush that eye mask would feel on my face. Grab it before fall rolls around and you'll be prepped for cozy szn.
The pots and pans you choose will make or break your cooking experience at home — take it from someone who hates to cook. A good cast iron pan and a snazzy non-toxic pan are essentials in my book, and both are on sale at Nordstrom.

Next to my coffee maker, my Always Pan is the one item I use most in my kitchen. The price is worth every penny and I'm in love with its versatility. Once you've cooked dinner and then washed it, it looks amazing sitting pretty on your stovetop.

Other Nordstrom Anniversary sale finds I won't be ghosting
Scrolling for hours through the sale section can be tiring, especially when you have to sift through some pretty basic buys and not-so-special discounts to really find good deals. I've done the heavy lifting and picked out a few extra buys that are worth clicking "check out" on.

Having a record player makes you 10 times cooler. Even if you're living in a tiny apartment or cramped dorm, it sets the vibe better than a speaker and Spotify playlist. This portable tie-dye version is impossible to say no to. It would look so cute with colorful vinyls popped on its platter!
Was $52, now $39.99 (save $12.01)
If you don't have a Hydro Flask yet, WYB? A reusable water bottle should be one of the main components of your hydration station, and this fan-fave container keeps drinks hot for up to 12 hours and chills them for 12. I'm really into the moonlight color, which is perfect for a quiet luxury babe.
Was $64.75, now $45.99 (save $18.76)
Funfetti is my favorite cake flavor (and yes it MUST have rainbow chip frosting on top). To remind me of it, I am absolutely putting this cute cooking utensil set in my cart. The sprinkles pattern on the spatulas has me sold, and I love the other cute pastel colors, too. There is also a baking set just in this pattern if you're as obsessed as I am.
