If you, like me, can’t bring yourself to pay full price for that fancy cookware set you’ve been coveting, let the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 be the opportunity to treat yourself. Nordstrom cardmembers have had early access for a few weeks, but now the sale is officially open to the general public. This is arguably the best time of year to shop (lots of sales but no holiday season pressure), and today through August 6, you’ll find some of the best deals for your kitchen and home at Nordstrom. I’m talking about coffee makers and electric tea kettles that’ll help wake you up in the morning and super plush pillows and eucalyptus sheets for a better night’s rest. I can’t tell you exactly what to cop at this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I can inform you that your dream indoor garden awaits.Technivorm Moccamaster
