Bargains on the Brain

I love bargains.

When you realize your income will only allow you to buy small fixtures or require you to save for MONTHS in order to buy that 1 thing you can’t live without… bargains become a shopping savior! Finding things on the cheap softens the blow of big dreams on a tight budget.   I can’t help but tell every family member and friend that comes to my house the exact price of random decor items. It’s quite embarrassing…

“Keighley, cute _____!”

“Thanks, it was $3.99…”

They never ask yet I can’t stop my mouth from moving! I guess bargains really mean a lot to me. To save me the hassle of listing off the deals I’ve come across lately, I will post them here for all you friends, family, and strangers to read. Fun.

Bookends, finials, pillars, statues, trinkets..

Leaning Tower of Pisa(?) = $4.99

Crystal Obelisk= $3.99

Ceramic Jars

Small+Large= $15

Ceramic Banded Plates

Salad Plates= $.20

Dinner Plates= $.40

(If you see any at your local Target buy them for me!)

Chain mail purse= $2.99

Now lets hope that none of these items become junk in the coming months! I’ve tried really hard to only buy items that I love- bargain or no bargain. I’m notorious for buying things only because the price is right. Needless to say, I have way too much stuff.

Have you come across any amazing bargains? Share please.

    jamie - I have to do the same thing. If someone asks me about an item I’m wearing I have to tell them the price, which usually ranges from $3 to $8. I usually don’t buy anything much more expensive than that thse days.
    Also, in the Albertsons ad this week you get 2 for $5 St. Ives lotion, scrub or moisturizing product. I got the Naturally Green Tea Facial scrub and a collagen facial moisturizing lotion. I’m going back for more. Great deal. :)
    OH and Target has Odell flats on sale for $8. THey are pink with a ruffle on the toe. So cute.

    Jannene Burdick - Love those white ceramic jars you posted Feb. 28th. Where did you find them? Any ideas where I could get nice jars for bathroom storage that would fit on 5″ wide glass shelves?

    Thanks, Jannene Burdick

    keighley - Hey Jannene,

    I got the white ceramic jars at Home Goods. The smaller one would definitely work in a bathroom storage shelf. xo
