TJ Maxx, Marshalls & HomeGoods Shopping Haul!

I found myself on the other side of town for an appointment, so I decided to check out the Marshalls and HomeGoods in that area.

Marshalls & Home Goods: Guess What I Found?

I stopped by a Marshalls & HomeGoods store that’s in a high traffic mall area. The Marshalls is upstairs and the HomeGoods is downstairs.

Haul Time: Hair Supplies, Snacks, and More

For this haul, I stopped by two Marshall’s and Home Goods locations, Steinmart, and Fresh Thyme market. I needed a new hair dryer with a diffuser.  I was attracted to this lilac colored Revlon dryer. It only came with a smoothing concentrator, so I’ll have to buy a diffuser. It’s 1875 watts, has 3 heat…

The Best Chicken Noodle Soup Ever!

I absolutely hate canned chicken noodle soup. It’s the last thing I want to reach for when I feel sick. That’s why I prepare for the future and keep homemade soup in the freezer.
