Shopping for Kitchen Appliances
Like a popcorn maker
A Cotton Candy Maker
Pigs In a Blanket Makers. I really don’t think these are flying off the shelves but I could be wrong.
The seasonal baking goodies were out in full force.
Cupcake decorating supplies
And more toys and gadgets including multiple types of cookie, cake, and cupcake decorating tools
Moving onto food processors
And ta-da, Stand Mixers. Another thing I don’t own but want to. It was either a lens or a stand mixer. I chose a lens and the stand mixer is on my Christmas list, for sure.
And that was just one little section of the store.
We didn’t even get to dishes, bedding, bathroom stuff, organizing products, trash cans, cloth napkins, beauty items, candles, seasonal foods and goodies, lamps, shower caddies, towels, curtains, or toilet rugs. It’s.just.endless.
I could have a field day!
My favorite purchase from the day so far has been the $3.99 cookie scoop
Cannot say enough great things about it. Small, but a life-changer.
Or a cookie-changer
1. What “makers” do you want from this post? Or what appliances, tools, or kitchen items do you want, in general?
I think it’s fair to say most of us would love a stand mixer or a Vita-Mix.
After that, no one would complain about a set of gorgeous knives, a stainless juicer, a great food processor, or for the coffee lovers, a fancy schmancy espresso maker.
But for things well below the $500 price point, I have to say, a popcorn maker or a cotton candy maker would make me smile. I love cotton candy! And chocolate-covered popcorn, too.
But my kitchen is the size of a shoebox. No storage for most of this stuff. Which is probably a good thing.
2. Do you like shopping for housewares? Do you like Bed Bath & Beyond or similar stores? Any favorite stores?
Since Linens ‘n Things has closed, BB & B really has the corner on the market in my area.
Ikea, Target, Marshalls, Homegoods, TJ Maxx, specialty cooking stores, Williams-Sonoma, Sur La Table, none of them really have the one-stop-shopping for housewares of all kinds that
bankrupts me excites me quite like BB & B.
Where else can you buy a down comforter, a cookie scoop, a Vita-Mix, a shower caddy, stock up on toothpaste and exotic coffees from their market section, get a couple of Yankee candles to burn, while browsing lamps for your desk and throw in some bamboo towels and champagne flutes and an iron for good measure.
I don’t know how their employees actually leave with a paycheck. I wouldn’t!
One tip about the Bed Bath & Beyond coupons is that they never expire, even though they have a printed expiration date on them, it doesn’t matter. The stores will always take them so I hoard them and save them in an envelope for a rainy day. With a 20% off savings, most things at BB & B are cheaper or almost as cheap as any online “deals” you can find. Plus you get to walk out of the store with your purchase that day rather than waiting for online orders to ship. Of course, there are exceptions to this, but 20% off coupons are great. Save them!
P.S. Thanks for the Sunglasses Giveaway entries. Looks like lots of you want some shades.
