80% off at Hobby Lobby

Today my mom and I made a trip into town to take DD to the dentist. While we were there we stopped at Hobby Lobby. I normally don't go here much because DH doesn't like Hobby Lobby as much as going to the garage sales. Don't get me wrong, he loves to shop and loves going to Target or places that have a little bit of a manly atmosphere but he's out on Hobby Lobby. So me and my mom take special trips there every so often.

I picked up two things from the 80% Home Decor isle. I've been wanting a new container for my utensils since my old one broke but haven't been able to find what I was looking for at garage sales. Today I found two options. The silver one was $4.40 and the chef one was $7.

Boy you don't realize how dirty the areas of your stove that you don't see everyday are until you see them in a picture :)

When I got home I tried both of them out to see which one worked the best. So which one won out over the other?

The rose patterned on had my utensils lifted so high that they hit the bottom of the cabinet. Trust me I'll find some other use for it because it's so pretty.

Next stop was Micheal's Art store since my mom couldn't find what she was looking for at Hobby Lobby. On the outside they had all sorts of baskets 50% off. I've been wanting one to put my cereal on top of the refrigerator and found the perfect one. It was $9.99 after the 50% was taken off.

Now if I can just find some more goodies to organize my house this summer at the garage sales. That's number one on my list of things to look for this garage sale season is stuff to organize our house.

Until next time . . .

Love your new utensil container, so cute and love the colors too. The basket is perfect. Storage is always such an issue, I sure hope you find what you are looking for. Hugs, Marty
