T.J. Maxx / HomeGoods Shopping Haul for my Kitchen

I love white dishes because they are so easy to mix and match with colorful ones, but decided I needed to add some color to my table settings and decided to go bargain shopping for some inexpensive colorful dishes and headed to T.J.Maxx and HomeGoods. And guess what? All I came home with was more white, and two scores of Lenox Kate Spade serving dishes that have nice modern red flower print. See my entire dish shopping haul at T.J.Maxx and tell me if you ever get the urge to shop for new dishes for your table. I can’t believe how much I got and how little I spent. I spent approximately 112$ with tax for all of the dishes, and if I had gone to a different store, this stuff could have easily been 300-400 dollars. See the pictures and detailed list what I got! The white salad plate is by Gibson, and I had to get for one dollar. BIA 7oz Quiche/Brulee dish with handles, I paid $2 each. I didn’t find the exact same ones online, but I found BIA Cordon Bleu 5-Inch Porcelain Quiche Dish for $2.50 at Amazon, smaller & no handles, but almost as inexpensive. BIA Cordon Bleu 10.5″ oval serving bowl, I scored it for $6.50 and would have bought more if they had had. Gatherings branded square table cloth, $7.99 with nice organic linen look. Cynthia Rowley Cake Stand, on sale $10 at T.J.Maxx. I didn’t find this online, but $10 for a cake stand, a steal! I found a bit similar looking, Square Cake Pedestal for 55 bucks. Lenox Kate Spade Laurel Canyon Oval Platter originally $120, now on sale at Lenox $89.95, I paid $22 at T.J.Maxx. Lenox Kate Spade Laurel Canyon Large Serving Bowl, originally $110, now on sale at Lenox $87.95, I paid $22 at T.J.Maxx. On the tops of the dishes, I also decided to test T.J.Maxx’s exclusive cookware line Palm, and bought two pots for $15 each. I read some online reviews and they didn’t promise too much, but at least they look prettier than some of my old pots, and work while I’m saving money for better pots. Disclosure: I received a T.J.Maxx gift card but it was not used to do this shopping haul and I purchased all of the items on my own. I have been a Maxxinista for years. ,

  1. My cupboards in 3 rooms are overflowing with dishes, so I rarely get the urge to buy more. But I do like looking for new tablecloths. I think that’s a nice way to give old dishes a fresh look (and a good way to dress up white dishes for different occasions!).
