I just bought the Bodum Chamboard French Press and I LOVE it!! What's your best recent home purchase that you would recommend to others?
I want to know what other awesome purchases I'm missing out on! Help a bee out! This girl wants to go shopping! :)
I haven't purchased anythign for our home recently (waiting for the wedding to be over co I can see what we have left on the registry). After that we'll head to the store and get a few things we want.
When I was re-decoratin 2 years ago, I got new curtains for the bedroom and new comforter and throw pilllows, new shower curtains and mats for the bathrooms and new bookcase for my sons room and coffee table for the living room.
Just bought a Shark Navigator Pro vacuum. It got rave reviews, even better than Dyson (some folks had a Dyson, vacuumed with it then with the Shark and said the Shark picked up a ton of what the Dyson left behind).
Not only was it reasonably priced, but we had a BB&B coupon and got it even cheaper! And it works so well!
How lame am I that I am excited to go home and use my vacuum?! ;)
It's not really for the home but I bought this purse and matching wallet on Sunday.
I'm super exc ited about them but I have to wait until X-mas to have them (they are going to end up being a present from DH's grandpa).
@GFerg: Haha, not lame at all! I'm mooning over my french press!
@GFerg: Not lame at all.. I was super excited when I got my steam mop. I LOVE to clean.
My big purchase was one of those really soft rugs for your bathroom. The memory foam ones? Well this one is like that but 10 times better. It's massive, a gorgeous shade of red, has a nice classic design..and it was $98.00! lol. I definitely splurged... It's just a fancy bathmat afterall.. but I love it so much. I have a very neutral house of beige, whites, browns, some black...but here and there I have some red pieces.
@S2013: Do you have the steam mop?
This iPhone! Weddingbee at my fingertips! :)
We just bought paint and had our dining room re-painted. We went with Farrow and Ball's Hauge Blue. OUr dining room looks so good, (sorry no pictures on this computer).
We just bought a washer and dryer! We've been able to rent one from our apartment complex, but we wanted to own our own. It will be arriving soon!! I can't wait!
On a side note, this is how I know I'm growing up...I'm excited about a washer and dryer :-).
@GFerg: Yes I have the Shark Steammop. I think there are several types.. Mine was originally 200.00 on sale at Macys for 130.00
I bought my plane ticket home for the holidays :-) It's been four years since I went home and did Chirstmas with my grandma and the rest of my family in the states.
Edit: Sorry, I just read the title and did not see home purchase! nevermind...
Er...I bought something to make homemade pasta? lol...
@Meowkers: Love that color!
@keepsmiling19: I would kill for a washer and dryer in our apartment! I've very jealous! :)
I just purchased my MOH's thank you gift. It's a Biba purse which was £100 reduced to £29. I'm stoked that I got it at such a great price. Hope it's as nice when it arrives in delivery :)
60" Samsung TV for the DH. Best purchase? Not for me but boy is he giddy. We broke it in by watching Nightmare Before Christmas last night.
We bought an air purifier with our BB&B gift cards and it's wonderful. My allergies have been horrible this year and it's really helping!
I made reservations at the Sofitel in Philly...that's not really a purchase but omg I'm excited...I love that hotel. I hope it lives up to expectations!
We bought a carpet steam cleaner :) Our three dogs really do a number on our beige carpet :/
easy! my empire red kitchenaid stand mixer
We're supposed to close on the new house in a month so I may tag this thread. I could not resist this rhino bust (random, yes I know)
Two awesome things for me. This first may be a bit lame, but a wire fruit basket with a banana hanger. The banana hanger is KEY!
The other is my awesome yard sale find: a Tassimo for $20! I LOVE that thing! Such delicious coffee! Mmmm.
Most recent thing I bought that I'm excited about was 2 books for my job from amazon
But I will be buying this next week (and when I say buying I mean slowly paying off over the next 5 years!)
I bought this pillows.They are memory foam for back sleepers. They perfectly adjust to the shape of your head and feels ooh sooo goood
For the house I bought picture frames. I've lived in apartments and trailers up until now, in apartments I couldn't hang pictures and the trailer's walls were too thin to hold anything so now that I'm in my house I'm going all out with photos. My favorite purchase was a shadowbox fram and some fabric. I have a growing collection of old keys and I saw a cute project on Pintrest that I'm going to do this weekend.
My nonhouse related purchase was my FH's birthday/anniversary gift (his birthday and our anniversary are a week apart) which was The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for the N64, which is his favorite game.
Not exactly home things but definitely stuff I use at home: the iPhone5 and my precious: Cinderella mirrored compact from Sephora. After a relentless hunt, I finally scored the final one at the 4th Sephora store I visited/called. LOVE IT!
@Treejewel19: That's my favorite movie of all time!
@peachacid: ive heard great things about that hotel. enjoy!
I just bought a couple sweater dresses!
@LGenz: You absolutely must provide pictures of how you display that in your home! I am very curious. :)
@GFerg: Ours too! We sing the songs all the time to each other. It is our go to movie every Halloween.
hand painted mexican tiles and a box wood stove! its not fully finished yet in this picture, but if you can imagine it with some trim work and a heat sheild in place you get the idea. I love it. With any luck it will cut our fuel bill in half!
I bought the jewelry for my January JOP ceremony today at a craft show! :)
Sorry it's sideways! :(
I bought two pairs of Rupert Sanderson heels on Friday; one reduced from £375 to £40 (which will be my brother's Christmas present to me)and the other reduced grom £325 to £20.
Bissell Spot Bot Pet... BEST THING EVER. As soon as we got it, I went around and steamed up all the pee spots my dog has left over the past year.. (apparently our way of cleaning the spots didn't do a good job) and it's like they were never there! Plus my dog also has a tendancy to puke in the car... does a good job cleaning that up too! I'm sure it'll come in handy with children.. and it's also cleaned up a drunken party foul.
@GFerg: I'm so glad you mentioned that because we almost bought a Dyson today, but I just couldn't stomach how much money it was. We will have to check this one out!
@starfish695: Yeahh! Me too! Most recent "purchase" :)
a book: "the cocktails of the Ritz Paris"
Jealous of all you bees with new cars!
My most recent purchase I'm obsessed with is our washer and dryer - they're front loaders that have steam features, a cold wash option, and a mode that self-cleans it so you don't get the mildew issue some front loaders have. And they play a cute little tune when they're done instead of just buzzing. I haven't used my iron once since getting them because I just toss wrinkly things on the steam refresh mode, and when I need to clean the dogs bed or our pillows, in they go on steam sanitary. It's so super convenient! I really wanted the cool colors but since they're in a closet decided it made more sense to splurge on the pedestals - they're very nice, have drawers in them and make everything the perfect height so I don't have to bend over (which is very nice as my pregnant stomach continues to expand!)
@eimajleigh: Firstly, loooove that French press. We got it as a wedding present and it rules.
I don't even know whether I consider this to be a purchase, but I made a big one-time payment on my higher interest student loans, like over $10K that I had saved up through major scraping, and it feels so good to know that interest isn't piling up. But I definitely don't recommend going shopping for that! I think my best recent purchase was a really soft and comfy sweater I happened upon at a thrift store, there's not much I like better than new clothes except when they're relative nice and still cost about the same as a cup of coffee. Good times.
I just bought these heels... drool!
I bought a new wood laminate floor for our living room and we installed it ourselves. It looks better than I could have imagined and I'm rid of the disgusting stained carpet that was in our house when we moved in. I'm over the moon.
