Summer Shopping Deals and a Garden Stool

I've been sharing lots of deals on Instagram and wanted to share them here too. I've gotten some really good deals lately. :)

I love a good end-of-season sale and Big Lots didn't disappoint. I picked up these blue plastic hobnail glasses for $1.25! (I bought 6) The little bird tray was only $3.50. I love anything hobnail.

This little caddy was at Homegoods for only $6.99. I love using it for forks and napkins when we have people over.

I've mentioned this before, but did y'all know that Party City has a great selection of guest napkins? Most of them are $2.95 for a 16 pack. I've seen some good ones at Tuesday Morning too. I like to stock up on them for the guest bathroom. (I have a little tray they fit into perfectly.) That way, people have a disposable napkin to dry their hands with instead of a communal towel. :)

They have such a wide selection. These are the ones I picked out this time...

I've had my eye on these cute ruffle bowls at Michael's for a couple of years now. I just happened to notice they were on sale the other day. I got the large green one for $2 and the small red one for only $1. Perfect for Christmas chips and dips!

I can't tell you how many times I've passed up this little crown trinket box in the dollar section at Michael's. I even had it in my cart a few times, then put it back because I wasn't sure what I'd use it for. Well, this time, I told myself to just reach into the bin with all the trinket boxes (they have lots of different ones) and if I happened to pull out the crown one, then I'd buy it. It was kismet, I tell ya. ;) And was marked $2, but rang up only $1. Totally meant to be. :)

Speaking of Michael's, I kept noticing how several people on IG got these awesome deals on garden stools at Michael's. They were picking them up on clearance for something crazy like $16! I decided I "needed" one, but my Michael's didn't have any and I wasn't about to spend $129 like some stores were asking. So I went to Homegoods looking specifically for a white one and BAM! There it was! And you know what? It was only $39. Not the $16 that some people got, but still a lot less than $129. 

And you know what else? It looks exactly like the $129 ones. :)

I think it adds a nice touch to my living room and can even be used as a little table.

Well, that's all the deals for now. Have y'all gotten any awesome end-of-season deals?



  1. You have found some wonderful deals!!!!
    I love,love,love your new garden stool....what a bargain too.

  2. I've seen a lot of your steals on IG and I'm jealous! Wish there was a homegoods close by! Enjoy!

  3. Those are some great deals! I love the garden stool you got. It looks perfect next to your sofa. Perfect to set a drink on too. Your family room looks so pretty with all the changes you made in there.

  4. You always find such cool things and great deals! The garden stool looks so nice in your living room.

    1. Thank you, Kim! I've really been on a roll lately with finding good deals! :) I'm so glad I found that garden stool at such a good price. Someone said they have them at Sam's Club for the same price, but I never thought to look there.

  5. Oh, we would have so much fun shopping together my friend!

  6. Oh....and I think your garden stool is fabulous!!! I've been eyeing those too!

  7. I have to check out the napkins. My daughter gets a little embarrassed when her boyfriend is over and we use real if it's too formal! lol!

    Those garden stools are so neat. I'm afraid I haven't seen any of the cheaper ones anywhere.

  8. I am such a napkin hoarder. I love your idea of putting them out for guests to use, So, so clever. The design in the napkin you purchased is a similar pattern to a flower pot I have. I think that's the approval I needed to go to Party City.

  9. You're a smart shopper! That's what I like to do...find things on clearance or marked down. And it's nice to compare shop, too. I looked at a few stores today but didn't buy much. Sometimes I need to think about it first! You did GREAT!!! Hugs!

  10. You are my kind of shopper, Lisa! So wish we could hunt for deals together! The napkins in the guest bath is such a great idea! And I loove your garden stool! I'll have to show you my stool when we get home (still camping)! It was a fabulous deal as well!
