In Big Lot's, he found these vinyl Patriotic tablecloths for just over $1.00 each.....
And how could he resist this sign with a B on it since our last name starts with B!!!!
In Wegman's, he found some great lighting items!!
I am only showing 2 packs here but he bought 4 packs of Fairy Lights with a 5 foot cord for only $4.00 each!!
And 3 packs of Solar Bottle Lights at $5.00 each marked down from $15 each!

This Solar lantern was reduced to $7.00 from $30!
Here is what I did with one set of the Fairy Lights.....
I placed them in a crackle glass candle jar holder that Joe bought last year on Clearance in Wegman's.
 They also can be set on a timer too!!

And here is where I hung this Solar Lantern.......
I attached one of the Bottle Solar Lights to a Vintage clear Bottle.......
The lights are yellow in color and flicker when lit!!
In Sam's Club, he could not resist these.......
 A set of 5 LED lights that light up in white, red, green or blue for only $20!!!

 You can dim them and also put them on a timer with a remote control......
 I decided to use them in the Kitchen.......

I placed 3 of them underneath the shelf above the counter bar in the Kitchen......
And 2 of them above the sink......
You can see how they looked with the white lights on.........
Here is how they look in red..........
In green.........
And in Blue.......
  These will be great for Holiday lighting!!

You can also use the remote to dim them and put them on a timer.....

Also in Wegman's, these were reduced to $1.74 each!!
Here is where I hung 2 of them!
This Herb Garden Container Set was only $2.00. I will put this away for next Summer.....
And these were under $2.00 each!!
These dish towels were marked down to 74 cents each!!
Not too bad of a haul!!

Please take some time to visit these terrific hosts and all those joining in on the fun!


  1. Ya'll must be singing "You Light Up My Life" around your house all the time! I'm fired up for Christmas too. Love all your Christmas decor.

  2. He sure does know how to find the bargains doesn't he, I love the lights above your sink and it is nice they are on timers too, may have to go check those out. I also love those wicker lamps I bet those look neat lit up too, he did a great job!

  3. Great products!!! Fantastic photos! Sweet greetings!


  4. Deb, you got really lucky! A husband that likes to shop! Everything is so pretty and sure fits in your charming space. I had a little jar of lights that looked like what I imagine fireflies look like, since I've never seen them, and some creep stole them out of our front garden..Happy Wednesday..xxoJudy

  5. Hi sweet Debbie! My, it looks like your husband got quite a few delightful items :) I agree with Judy, everything is very pretty.

    Hugs to you!

  6. Love all his bargains. We bought the same color changing light sets for under our kitchen cabinets and liked them so well we went back and bought sets for the basement cabinets and under the bar. We were not as lucky as Joe though. We had to pay full price.

    Love solar lights in the yard. Nice to see lights and know you are not paying for electric to run them.

  7. Joe is a super shopper Debbie! I adore the tablecloths he found and fairy lights are always a good find.

  8. Hi Debbie, oh my Joe is quite the shopper....I remember some other buys you posted other times. Hes a rarity that Joe , Love all his finds! Lisa@ Sweet Tea N' Salty Air

  9. Smart shopping!! Thanks for sharing at Thoughts of Home and showing us the right way to do it. :)

  10. Your Joe reminds me so much of my Glenn with his flair for shopping and his generous heart. He knows what you like and he likes making you happy. My Glenn does so much for me too. He clips coupons and watches for deals, as he does 99% of the grocery shopping and makes sure my pantry is stocked. I do 100% of the cooking/baking, unless it is outdoor grilling and he knows my preferences. Last week he brought home 2 magazines for me, one of my favorites which he knows I watch for each season. The other he thought I would like and he was spot on. We are blessed to have our good men and I love hearing about Joe!

  11. Wow! Joe did good!

    The last thing Steve would ever do would be to go shopping. I don't think it would ever occur to him to look for bargains for me.

    But, in his defense, he does all the grocery shopping and cooking.

    Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  12. I love the solar lantern!! So pretty!

  13. Wow, Joe did good. He got some great items at good prices.

  14. Joe really is a great shopper....he seems to know exactly what you like and can use! If not for H, I wouldn't have that new chandy...would have driven right on by it thinking it was too expensive. Maybe they are both keepers....lol! I love all the new lighting he picked up....hugs...

  15. Oh wow, he got some great things Debbie. Love the lights in the crackle jar!!

    Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays

  16. Aren't you the lucky gal with a hubby that loves to shop?! Looks like he found some cute and fun things, too! Happy August! xx Karen

  17. Oh my goodness, your Joe is quite the shopper, no wonder you keep him around :) Love those little colorful lanterns, but all the items are fun! Thanks so much for the shout out and of course for linking up and sharing your posts with us every week at Snickerdoodle Sunday! Take care of you and Joe and try to stay cool!

  18. Oh my. What fantastic finds. I love the lights. I wish we had a Wegmans. I see stuff on the internet from there all the time. Thanks so much for linking up to my little party. Have a wonderful week.

  19. Well doggone it, always so good to have lighting sources. When we lived in KY if wind blew lights went out for while. As soon as wind came up would get out candles, oil lanterns. We lived out in country so it got very dark in a hurry and I was alone. At that time hubs was over road trucker.
    Think you gals got all the really good shoppers out there, am so envious of all the awesome bargains your Joe found at such incredible prices, enjoy him and all those treasures. Makes me wish we had a Wegmans.

  21. Loving the bottle solar light! I want~ ! I bought the under the counter lights not long ago and now I forget tot turn them on, lol. Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday! Pinned! Have a great week!

  22. Great Finds Joe!! I think you have him trained well Debbie!! just kidding! :-) Thanks for sharing on My 2 favorite Things on Thursday! Pinned!

  23. Those are all great bargains! We don't have Wegman's here. I've seen you mention it a number of times and it makes me wish we did! Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle Sunday, Debbie.

  24. What a shopper your Joe is! He's gonna love working at Wegman's when he retires. He does plan to work there, right?? I can imagine all the deals he will find. And can one have too many strings of fairy lights? I think not! ;-)
