How I Got Home Goods Happy

Need a pick me up from life’s humbugs or the drab weather that’s caught somewhere between Spring’s rain and Summer’s sweltering heat?  Then head right over to your nearest Home Goods and find a little happiness in a store!  That’s just how I spent a recent weekend, with my sister, and my mother (a Home Goods newbie).  The three of us oohed and ahhed over the lamps, furniture, mirrors, bath goods, kitchen finds, glass vases, etc.  One hour and two over – flowing baskets later we emerged with goodies to outfit our dens, kitchens, and entire homes.  P.S.  Thank God for the bottom rack of those baskets, they definitely came in handy ;-)

The find of the day goes to my sister for scooping up a fabulous framed mirror for only $22.  This framed mirror measures in at 36” and would look perfect in her den hanging horizontally over her sofa.  Talk about a deal?!?

My mother picked up several items for her lovely home too, including several wall décor fixtures, crystal candleholders, wrapping paper, etc.

As for me, I hit the jackpot in terms of cute, yet functional organizational bins, laser cut table runners and placemats, a hand blown glass sculpture, a set of bronze wall sconces ($16.99), and a slew of peacock printed wrapping paper.

My mother has had a lifelong obsession with wrapping paper and regularly stocks up on it for every occasion, several times a year.  I too have inherited this obsession and
Home Goods
didn’t disappoint.  One insider tip we picked up, as we perused the wrapping paper bins at the checkout counter, is that wrapping paper is changed out frequently and therefore, look for the red sale stickers on the rolls throughout the bin.  I picked up several rolls of this fabulous peacock printed wrapping paper for $2 a roll (A Steal!!!) 

Run, don’t walk to your nearest Home Goods and you will not be disappointed.  In the words of a fellow Home Goods Super Shopper:


Until next time…

Ready, Set, Shop!!
