Need A Home Refresh Checklist? Your Complete List & Everything’s On Sale!

Home Refresh Checklist

Are you looking to update or refresh any of the items in your home? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to pick up some of those most needed items….on sale! Worn-out sheets, pilling bath towels, dinnerware you registered for 20 years ago and no longer love? Getting organized and prioritizing your list is super important. This way, you can establish a budget and start chipping away at your “must-haves”, and “just wants”! So, where do you start? We created this organized, home refresh checklist, broken down by room, and I’m sharing my favorite picks in each category. And *bonus* all items are currently on sale!!

Must-Have Home Favorites


I know new towels aren’t the most glamorous purchase ever, but when you have the right set, that is soft and durable, you quickly remember why an upgrade might be necessary! I’m eyeing this set of towels for their great value in the color Fossil which is a really pretty, light greige neutral. But if I could only recommend one item in this category, it would HAVE to be the Simple Human mirror! It has 5x magnification and a tru-lux light system that simulates natural light. It’s such a great makeup mirror in terms of making sure your concealer is blended, your eyebrows are shapely, etc. If you missed it, one of our team members, Susan, wrote a review on why she loves it so much here. If you’ve been thinking about it, the full-size version is $60 off right now. This might be the time to pull the trigger.


If you are looking for a new duvet set, this one from Boll & Branch is incredibly soft, made from their signature organic cotton, AND on sale for at least $60 off (depending on the size you need). Team Busbee is also a collective huge fan of the Slip silk pillowcases for smoother skin and hair. If you don’t already have one, you’ll be surprised at the difference it makes! The Barefoot Dreams blankets are one of our best-sellers in the home category year after year. They also make great gifts so why not stock up while they’re on sale!? I love the pretty blue color of this one.


Everyone raves about this Always Pan for being a perfect one-and-done option as a sauté pan, steamer, and skillet. I’m not the hugest fan of cooking so I’m all about tools that make it easier! Plus, since it performs so many duties, it will take the place of multiple pans in your cabinet.  If you’re a tea drinker like me, you’ll love this Fellow electric kettle. It heats up so quickly, you’ll have the perfect temperature water before the dishwasher is even unloaded. If you don’t already have a Pura diffuser, this set comes with the diffuser and 4 fragrance refills including the popular Capri Blue scent which is citrusy, light, and fresh…perfect for the kitchen.

Tabletop & Serving

For someone who loves a good charcuterie platter, this Viking butcher block serving board is dual-purpose! One side has 3 compartments for nuts, veggies, or crackers alongside your meats and cheese. But, wait…there’s more 😉 The second side has those juice grooves you need when slicing meat off the grill, so it doesn’t spill all over. One side is practical for cutting and the reverse is pretty for serving. Genius! If you aren’t in the market for the dual-sided Mac Daddy board, this smaller mango wood cutting board would make a great serving piece too.

Home Décor & Gifts

There are two sets in the sale that I want to point out. Both make great gifts for someone heading off to college or if you are wanting to get a jump start on your holiday shopping. The first is this faux shearling Ugg throw blanket and eye mask set. It comes in a cute bag and would be perfect for a dorm room or travel. The second is this Barefoot Dreams set with cozy socks, an eye mask, and a scrunchie. It all comes in a small travel bag so you could easily pop it into your carry-on.
