Shannon gave me a gift card for Bed Bath & Beyond on my birthday (back in January) and I finally got to spend it! I raked in the goodies too. Here is what I bought: a towel bar that hangs on your kitchen drawer front, a collapsable microwave food coverer, black plastic folding step stool for the Honda Element (hard to get the top of the car cleaned at the do-it-your-self wand car wash and will work great for my folks to get in and out!), set of 4 cutting boards (each with a picture on it to tell you what type of food to use it with Veggie, Chicken, Meat, Fish and they are silicone), and lastly a shower caddy to hang from the shower nozzle. Our corner shower caddy that went tub to ceiling bit the dust (or should I say RUST)!
After Bed Bath & Beyond I went to Lowe’s and did some pricing. I got the prices for Primer (need to paint the house and gotta start somewhere). I also got all the prices for door handles. I want to replace them all and go with the brushed steel lever style rather than the current brass knob style. I also bought a new shower head ($12.00!) to replace the one I bought about two years ago. It worked great at the beginning but just doesn’t cut it anymore. We have very low water pressure so it needs to be able to handle that. I hate a weak shower, I want some pressure there! So I found this very inexpensive shower head that says it works great in low water pressure situations. We will find out soon enough! After replacing the shower head I had to clean the tub from standing in it and to get all the rust stains off of the tub walls from the old shower caddy.
So my birthday gifts actually are for the house and both Shannon and me! I had fun buying it all and spending very little of my own money!
