HomeGoods Has THE Goods


This is a compensated review from BlogHer and HomeGoods


I literally jumped around, clapped, and squealed when I found out that I had been chosen to do a review for HomeGoods. And when I found out that I had a $500 gift card to makeover our home, I was stoked! Trust me, $500 goes a LONG LONG way at HomeGoods, because their prices are so affordable! (Think 3 carts completely FULL!) The average price for the items in my cart was $10! However, don’t think that a cheap price equals cheap look and quality. Their products are designer names for 1/3 of the cost! HomeGoods has THE GOODS!

You can find accessories and decor for whatever your style might me. The store is filled with Contemporary, Cultural, Country, and Classical inspirations. (Or you can go for a cookie cutter/mixed look, which tends to be my personal style.) Check out Open House - HomeGoods' blog "for anyone that loves their home" for ideas and inspiration.

Before my HomeGoods shopping extravaganza, our home was going for the “minimalist” look: our walls were bare, end tables with nothing on them, lots of empty space, and lots of improvising. For example, we were using a hamper as a end table in our bedroom. With some TLC from HomeGoods, our house has went through quite a transformation. I’m in love with every purchase and the new look for our home.
