There's something for everybody at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, one of the most buzzed sale events of the year, according to design-savvy shoppers.

For a limited time, prices drop on brand new merchandise. This year's sale promises hundreds of scores on beloved brands and luxurious labels that never seem to go on sale. 

Even better, the various price points cater to everyone, and after several years of shopping the sale, we've noticed an interesting trend: similarly designed items with a mid-range and then a pricier option. Think of it as a luxury item having a Nordstrom-branded or lower-cost counterpart. 

Honestly, we think this approach works pretty well, since if an item goes out of stock, there is a similar alternative to replace it with, and you can find something that suits you within your budget. So, we scouted out the best splurge vs save Nordstrom Anniversary Sale home buys to give you a good idea of what you can find on sale. From bedding sets to bath towels, there are loads of items part of the sale to give your home a new look. Or perhaps you are off to college and looking for budget-friendly dorm room ideas to decorate your home from home?
