Shop Til You Drop~ For FREE!

I finally made it up to HomeGoods today to spend my $100 gift card I won on Kayla Aimee's Blogher giveaway!  It's about an hour up to Portland and this was the first chance I had to get up there. 

It was so fun!!  Spending money guilt free is so awesome but it also really makes you want to spend wisely and get some real bang for your buck.  It took me about and hour and a half to narrow down my purchases.  There were so many cool things.  Here is some of my loot piled up at the cash register!

I got this gorgeous beveled mirror~it's huge, about 30"x36".  The plan is to spray it white and hang over my bedroom dresser.

I also got these fun white cereal bowls (love the dots!):

The big pasta/serving bowl and love this little bird's nest sconce, which will also be sprayed white!

Two Eddie Bauer Home premium loft king sized pillows.  So plump!

And this fun over the sink colander/cutting board and spatula.

My grand total was $99.89 cents!  So fun!!  And I still have 11 cents left on my gift card!  ;-)

Our next stop was the IKEA next door for lunch and more shopping.  Found some great deals~  $3 for a king sized white bed skirt on clearance!   I also picked up a few more things for my bedroom makeover.  I am loving how it is coming together and I'll do a reveal soon.

Thanks for stopping by! Linking up to these fab parties! 



  1. Oh I know the felling Renee, when I won a HG giveaway with Savannah Granny I nearly got the vapors. So much fun just picking up whatever you fancy. Love the bowls and who couldn't use new pillows. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lucky you! I love large mirrors, so way to go on the one you found! Enjoy.
