~The HomeGoods~


Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh...................
*sigh*
*sigh*
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh..............

That is how I feel everytime I shop at HomeGoods.
I always feel like I'm getting such a deal that I feel like I'm........
SPAVING...........(spending+saving=spaving)







This is a HUGE birdhouse on a stand.
Retail Price at lease $100.00
I spaved and got it for $49.95



Retail from William Sonoma $188.00(yes, the tags were left on it)
Spaved $39.95


These I just had to have. They are sold individually.
Combined retail $53.00
Spaved $31.97
Sorry about the bad photo. The camera didn't like taking pics of these.
It threw a temper tantrum and just wouldn't give a clear photo.



Here it is close up!

I know lots of people have obsessions with shoes, bags, clothes, jewelry....the list goes on and on.
My obsession is canister sets.
I also bought this is a garbage can.
Didn't want to put a pic up of the bathroom....I'm waiting to do the before and after....painting.

~Happy Friday~

Picture me throwing a tantrum- "I WANT A HOMEGOODS STORE HERE!!!!!" Totally cute stuff! Especially the cloche thingy! You lucky duck!:) Have a great weekend Amy!

Sandi said...

Wow lucky you and great finds! That is one thing I miss! I haven't been to a Home Goods store in months. We always stopped there on the way to my daughters house and haven't been there since Christmas. My very favorite store ever!!

WE NEED TO LIVE CLOSER. seriously. have i said that before? maybe i forgot to mention it....

I can see us dropping off our 6 year olds to school and then meeting for coffee and then off to HomeGoods.

I. LOVE. HOMEGOODS! They just put in one that isn't too far from me....before we didn't have one! Only the small aisles at TJMaxx. (not enough for me!)

Anyway - LOVE your stuff. We might think about not going together, I want everything you get....we'll have to agree that if we both like it, they only have one - then you can sell it at Maisy's Market...only to provide more $$ for future spaving adventures!

xoxoxoxo TGIF!

Simply Dandy said...

Hi there, I am new to your blog. I love Homegoods!!! And yes I always spave there too!!! In fact I went there today. Our closest one is 50 miles away but oh so worth it. I saw your canister set and actually debated on it.

Karen said...

You really found some good spavings! I'm going to think of this word next time I'm at the grocery store and they tell me I saved X amount of dollars. I always think, if I saved so much, how come my money's all gone LOL. Karen
