Yes, it seems like there are sales year-round, and judging by the number of emails I get, at least one retailer I regularly shop from has a sale each weekend. But this time of year is especially great for deals. We've got Memorial Day around the corner, which means you've got a lot of opportunities to stock up on some finds for summer, whether you're looking for clothes, shoes, travel gear, tech, etc.

And this week, Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale starts. Twice a year (the name is pretty self-explanatory), Nordstrom blesses us with some amazing deals across the board. Looking for something to wear to that wedding this summer? You've got options. Need a new pair of kicks? You'll definitely find one in the sale. Want to restock your beauty stash? We think you'll be happy.

Of course, you can always use this chance to add more to your activewear inventory. The retailer has a great selection of activewear and workout gear to shop from right now. We've picked some of our favorite finds to shop below.
