BEDA #12

Ever heard a smarty kid say “ want to hear me count to 100?  OK, 1...2...skip a few 100” 
I guess that is how BEDA is going. 
We had houseguests and we were busy doing things and I really couldn’t photograph much.  People just don’t understand why I would be taking photos of things like supper or purchases (things blog readers may like) but things that non-blog people don’t take photos of.  

Anyway,  I think as of this afternoon,  we are back to a more normal routine.  So,  I’ll try to get back to BEDA,  

We did some shopping with our guests -I will add my husband did not shop as he is a few weeks past knee surgery and doing good but not ready for shopping.  

Our town has a new Home Goods and I visited it for the first time.  It’s a very nice store and huge!  

I think Home Goods is a sister company to Marshalls and TJMaxx.  Prices are similar but HomeGoods only carries home things- no clothing, shoes or personal care like the other 2 stores.  

I saw lots of pretty things there but it was just Soooo Much Stuff!  I was a bit overwhelmed and didn’t buy a thing.  

We also visited Dollar Tree.  Our local store has been re-set and now is a Super Dollar Tree meaning they have a small section with $3 and $5 items.  The higher priced items are all together and marked.  I saw things like decent quality door mats, games, bed and decorator pillows,  nicer personal care and cleaning items.  
Sorry I didn’t take any photos.  

A simple thing our guests enjoyed and so did I was working jig saw puzzles.  

This one was small but tricky as the pieces are all odd shapes and don’t fit back together in rows. 

We started this one but it’s still in progress- and it’s tricky too.  It’s old shoes with assorted plants in them 

Now I need to go do a little housework and make my weekly list.  
I won’t have to cook supper though as we have leftovers.  

❤️ Rhonda

I am really curious about that Dollar Tree. I love our Dollar Tree but everything is $1, What kind of things are $3 and $5?

I'm really glad there is not a Home Goods in my little town. There were too many things I loved in your photos!

We now have a Home Goods as well - I have never been. I have tried both Marshall's and TJ Max and disliked both. I will have to give Home Goods a try. Thanks

Now, I wish I had a puzzle to work!

I just love most everything in Home Goods---haven't been there in probably 18 months or more...it is always packed.

But, like you, I get overwhelmed and usually leave with buying nothing! It would be heaven if you were decorating a model home or buying for someone's first apartment.

Our Dollar Tree is still just $1 for everything.

Glad you enjoyed your guests...but it is nice to get back to "normal"...

Your guests sound like they had a wonderful time. I have never been in a Home Goods store. It really seems like I would find something in there I would like LOL. So maybe we will get one around here soon.
have a great day!

I love Home goods. It is fun to look but I rarely buy as I don't need anything.

I love Home Goods, but I am trying to declutter, and I don't want to bring more stuff in. Although I do love cute bowls and kitchen towels! Good for you for not buying anything :)

I love Home Goods, but need to be intentional about what I'm shopping for when I'm in there. I have a list of things to look for when I finally get back there - it's in a town about 45 miles away, and that trip is first on my list of things to do after our second shots.

I love puzzles, but I bet my cats do, too...

I love HomeGoods. We don't have one in our town, but several in neighboring towns. Always fun to look around!
