Fall Mother Daughter Shopping Trip Recap
Hi there! It has been a fun last few days as my mom and I were on our annual fall shopping trip. What started as a back to school clothing one-day shopping trip in my teens has turned into a two-day mini vacation where we shop until we drop.
Like Mother like daughter in our mustard colored Walmart tops:)
This year, we decided to go over a few weekdays now that my kids are all in school full-time. I think we picked a great time of year and days to go as we caught the tail end of many Columbus day sales.
Our trip is a combination of shopping for clothes, home decor and getting a start on Christmas shopping. This year, I”ll be honest, we did not get much done in the way of Christmas shopping. But we did have find a lot of great clothing and home decor!
Today, I am going to share our home decor finds including the things we spotted and also purchased! Stay tuned for our fall clothing finds recap!
We typically spend one day at the mall and clothing stores and one day at the discount and home decor stores. It is always a nice break to check out home decor after a day of clothing shopping!
The Homegoods we visited had a TON of great furniture pieces. I managed to squeeze a few furniture pieces into my car, but if I had more room, I might have taken home even more:)
We are in need of a media console as we are redoing our basement space. This beautiful large console would have been perfect. The storage in this unit is so plentiful especially with those crate drawers.
I didn’t come home with a media console but I did come home with a few other furniture pieces. We’ve been looking for a new desk for my daughter for quite awhile and until now had not found a perfect match. She wanted something with decent storage and most importantly a lot of work space. Since her bedroom has angled ceilings, we were limited on the height of the desk. Plus, we ideally wanted a gray or white desk. With all of these criteria, we had yet to find something ideal.
But, I scored this beautiful gray desk and soft blue desk chair! She couldn’t have been happier. It was really a great find and I am happy it wasn’t too hard to fit into our car.

This desk has a smart feature that allows you to plug your phone or devices right into the desk for charging. My daughter absolutely loves this feature.
My youngest son was the happy recipient of her original desk, so it all worked out well.
Another Homegoods find was this set of metal drawers. It was a piece that when I spotted I could think of several different spots to put it. We decided to put it on the second floor landing area by the kids’ rooms. It is already filled up socks, extra shoes, hats and other accessories. One row for each of the kids.
This piece would also look great in a media room, kid’s playroom and entry way. So many possibilities!
Kirklands Christmas Decorations
Most of the home decor stores we visited were just started to put out their Christmas decorations. But Kirklands had ALL of their Christmas decorations on display! They really have a great Christmas decor selection.
All of the Kirklands Christmas signs are gorgeous!
This Buffalo Check Christmas pillow (not online but SIMILAR) is adorable too! I am thinking about a black, white and green theme for our Christmas decor, so this pillow would be perfect.
Speaking of a green and white theme, I spotted these wood bead garlands. So pretty! You could drape these on a Christmas tree or fireplace mantle.
More pretty rustic Christmas decor. I really like the Home For the Holidays pillow. This entire display gives me so much inspiration!
More pretty Christmas signs..so many to choose from!
Kirlands Home Decor
Besides Christmas decor, Kirklands has a great selection of year round home decor right now. This Welcome Bench caught my eye because it is small and would be great for a smaller entryway area!
This home decor display caught my attention because the pieces are things you could incorporate into holiday decor but also keep out year round.
The cutest little set of cream and sugar dishes! Would make a nice hostess gift!
This entire dining room display is gorgeous! The colors and patterns in this whole area are so pretty! I like the pop of color with the hay/wheat stems.
Buffalo check is still in style! How pretty are these wood and buffalo check bowls and two tier trays?
Kirklands Home Decor Finds
Our final stop of our shopping trip was Ikea. It is always an experience walking through Ikea–there is no way to be quick about it.
My mom and I both grabbed some basics. I wanted a new set of wine glasses and you can’t beat the price.
As I mentioned, we are updating our basement and we will need a new couch. So I’m on the lookout for an inexpensive option. Any opinions on Ikea couches? I want to make sure they are comfortable.
Also, I noticed this glass and metal cabinet and think it would be cool for a boy’s bedroom or a media room. If you have a nice collection of something, this would be a great way to display it (sports mementos/photography equipment, etc).
