I decided to go do a little shopping after all. I was on the hunt for more bed risers which I bought on the clearance aisle at one of the local Walgreens. I couldn’t remember if I bought the last set so thought I’d check – none left – but I’ll be able to find them at other stores so not worried about that.
In the mean time, since I had a while before the next bus would arrive, I hopped across the street to TJ Maxx. The only area I ever shop in at their store is the housewares section where I have found some really great buys in the past or some cute decorative things that I like. Today was a good day. I wanted more storage basket type things to use on the book case when I move it into the bedroom and found a great one on sale.
Very sturdy and very inexpensive. Also some little plastic storage containers since mine always seem to disappear and those are some pillowshams that go with a new bedspread I bought. Also got a set of pillowcases for $2.00 so they were a bargain. I need to go back tho when I’m out shopping with a friend and not riding the bus – they have the most perfect lamps for my bedroom – a great color match for my bedroom furniture and also inexpensive – just not able to drag them home on the bus 🙂
But my favorite find was this huge, and I mean huge, bag. It’s got to be about 3 feet tall and where the sides are sort of folded (from hanging on a rack by the handles) it’s about 3 feet across. It stands up by itself due to something with a bit of heft between the outer layer and lining. Now I could just fill it up with yarn 😉 but I got it because I think it will be a great clothes hamper in the bedroom closet tho almost too pretty to hide away in the closet.
So I didn’t get much more cleaning done this afternoon except a load of laundry but I’m off to deal with that bookshelf and get it emptied while the onions are carmelizing for my French onion soup. The soup will be great for dinner since it’s in the mid 20s outside but I didn’t realize how windy it was – chilled to the bone while waiting for the bus so have to get moving and cleaning so I warm up again.
