While I was in Portland last week I did several things. I saw my friends, I went shopping at some of my favorite places, and I went to some good places to eat!
When I left off it was Thursday morning and I was getting ready to head out and do some shopping. Unfortunately, my friend wasn't able to meet me (darn work!) so I headed off on my own.
First stop: HomeGoods!
I love HomeGoods! It is kind of like a Ross or Marshall's but focused on home stuff only: dishes, decorations, furniture, bath, kitchen and knick knacks.
Let's just say I didn't leave empty handed.
I bought this shoe organizer to help clean up the disaster area that is my shoe closet. I have been so frustrated lately with trying to find my shoes.
This had a little chip in the corner so I asked them to discount it, which they did.
A little black sharpie magic and voila!
I also bought this super fuzzy soft blanket. I am so in love with this pattern! Everything I see with this pattern I want!
I also bought a new plastic insulated cup, and two stainless steel travel mugs.
I almost forgot! I saw these and fell in love. Had to buy them. Had to!
They are porcelain "fry baskets!" I don't make fries really, but these will be great for smaller portions or as snack serving dishes for say like Superbowl Sunday! BOOM!
After HomeGoods I headed over to Burlington Coat Factory. Another of my favorite discount stores!
I bought a bunch of stuff that I didn't take pictures of, like belts, some jewelry, socks, a Christmas gift and towels.
When my mom was here this summer she was folding some of my laundry and told me I needed to get new towels. Towels are expensive!! And if they are inexpensive they are super cheap feeling. I found some nice fluffy soft towels for $5.99. There ya go, mom...new towels.
Next stop was my favorite sushi restaurant: Sushi Hana! Oh I love Sushi Hana!
Bad photo quality due to the direction of the sun...
I know this isn't raw fish, but it is my favorite sushi roll ever. It is tempura asparagus, cream cheese, seaweed (nori?), rice, tempura and a hot sauce drizzled over it. OH my goshness....I love this! I had two. I also had two salmon and a house special egg/tuna salad/crab salad roll. I very purposefully did not eat the entire restaurant, though I certainly could have!
Yes! Touchscreen compatible gloves for $3.00. Thanks to Cassie over at Back To Her Roots for the heads up on these! I put them to work on Saturday at the Monster Dash. They totally work! No more having to take my gloves off to answer my phone or send a text. So cool.
I also saw this, which I did NOT buy because I already have 5 crock-pots, but I seriously wanted to!
I told you! I'm just in love with this design.
After Target it was time to wrap up my shopping trip. I headed back to the hotel to relax for a bit. I ended up going to Massage Envy and getting a 90 minute massage. BLISS!
The evening was a whirlwind, but that story will have to wait for later! This post is long and it's time for me to get ready for school!
What is your favorite discount store?
