Favorite Finds

This is a catch-all list with no rhyme or reason to its order (shocking coming from me). These are just a few of my current favorite finds.


Matt's mom introduced me to an inexpensive non-polish french manicure called Incoco. They SO easy to use and last for about two weeks!

T.J. Maxx for clothes, Marshalls for shoes, and Homegoods for anything for your home. The prices are great and the styles are trendy (I need all the help I can get it the clothing department!). Just about every decorative accessory in our house is from Homegoods.

We just finished reading these in our small group. They are excellent!  The chapters go together for the most part.  We read one chapter each week and discussed what we read with each other and with our small group.  We were surprised at how much more we learned much about each other! I definitely recommend reading these with your spouse. They are very practical and easy to read. You can also get the boxed set called For Couples Only.

West Elm is owned by the same company that owns Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma, but their prices are much more reasonable.  And unlike other companies that offer lower-priced retail options, the quality is not sacrificed at West Elm. Our window treatments and our bedding are from here (but all curtain rods and pillows came from Homegoods!). They run great sales, and you can look up promo codes on Google to get an additional discount off your order.

Brio's Tuscan Taster menu is available Monday-Friday from 3-7pm and 9pm-close. Everything on the menu is $2.95! Mccormick and Schmick's and P.F. Chang's offer similar deals.

This product will make your hair feel so soft! It's fairly expensive at full price, but I searched on Ebay and found a sample size for $0.99 that last me 6 months!

When we first moved into our house, I felt flustered getting into a cleaning routine with products that I could use on some of the new surfaces. For example, I learned I couldn't use my Clorox wipes or vinegar and water on the countertops or appliances :/ I Clorox-wiped EVERYTHING at our apartment! I ended up finding this "Perfect" collection ;) at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. They work great! They are $6.99 each, so $5.60 after the 20% off coupon. :) The countertop cleaner cleans and polishes at the same time, and the kitchen cleaner leaves no streaks! Here's the top of our stove for you to see:

Sanders Furniture located in Monroe, GA. is where we purchased all of the new furniture for our house. My stepdad, Charles Sanders, is the third-generation owner of the store.  He and my stepsister, Tora, will help you find anything and everything you are looking for at a great price!
