Its always something when it comes holiday time. You’re either, traveling to an idyllic spot like the Hamptons of the midwest or the actual Hamptons, buying the food to entertain guests, drinks and copious amounts of liquors and maybe some boxes of white claw but for some of us, labor day weekend means sadly counting down to the end of summer, 3 day weekend, sales.sales.sales and you know thats when the stores offline and online roll out the red carpet for the discounts we so crave. Sure most of the merch might be summer things but we’ve found a few items from these Labor Day Weekend sales that can definitely work for your summer-fall transition wardrobe and the seasons after that. We’ve also got some beauty finds as well. Scroll down to shop our 5 picks for Labor Day Weekend sales for the baller on a budget and you better get those shopping in now before those tariffs hit and the brands have to start raising prices on us consumers.
The HBIC when it comes to bargain hunting for the baller on a budget. The off price sister to Nordstrom is having our favorite labor day sale, Clear The Rack, where you get an extra 25% off clearance items. I usually recommend heading to a physical store to really rack up on some good deals and classic designer items (State Street and Northbrook locations being favorites) when this sale comes around but if the prospect of shopping around other people or even putting on pants is a deal breaker, here are some finds online.

Truth be told, personally I am not the type to shop at Anthropologie but listen a sale is a sale and if they’re offering an extra 50% off sale items let’s find something to make happen, no? You can save on apparel, home and beauty/wellness products.
The discount sister to Net-A-Porter is truly a treasure chest because you just never know when you will hit a nice discount that you can’t help but add to cart and complete the purchase. This Iro jacket is a perfect piece for fall and that price?! You can’t go wrong. Scroll through, sort through you are sure to find something for a good bargain.

I’m sure you’ve probably sense a theme that these are not your run of the mill stores because why look like a basic when you can look better for less. Don’t sleep on MatchesFashion as their sale selections always features some great pieces for good pricing. Its not like those sales that will announced 50% off and its still like $1,000. You can definitely find something here if you are patient to look.
