1st Home Goods Trip & 4th Anniversary
Yesterday was my 4th Anniversary with my boyfriend, so I took a vacation day off from work thinking that I’d get to spend it with my boyfriend, but he had to work. So I planned a trip to Home Goods with my sister (a new one opened up just 26 miles away in August). I’ve never been there before, but I’ve heard amazing stories about this place. Plus, I love TJMaxx. (we bought a few things there for our kitchen in the past.)
It rained pretty much ALL day, but we still managed to make it to the mall, Froots (Love their Red Bull smoothies), Home Goods & Dollar Tree in about three hours of time.
Now about Home Goods. That place is AMAZING! I only bought what I could carry since all of the carts were out in the rain. I would have bought soooo much more if they were dry.
I bought a new throw blanket in my favorite color, grey, for only $25. I’ve been looking for a new throw blanket since my current favorite one is brown, which doesn’t really match anything else I own.
It’s extremely soft. I was petting it, my sister was petting it. Even the cashier was petting it while ringing it up and of course the first thing my boyfriend did when he saw it was pet it.
I also bought a Christmas decoration since I have NONE! It was only $12.
By the way, do you know where I can get an artificial Christmas tree at a really awesome price? We currently do not have a Christmas tree and I’d really love to have one this year. (I’d rather not have a real tree, since the cat likes to eat it…)
Now onto the Anniversary.
I’m not going to go into prices, since I don’t want the boy to know, but I spent under $35.
His gifts included a case of his favorite beer, a card, two beer glasses (he’s wanted some for awhile), an olive oil dispenser (that I’ve been wanting to get him forever) & a bunch of his favorite candy.
I’ll be back later on with the Inspiration Stamps!
How was your first Home Goods experience?
