Weekly Reads and Finds

Weekly Reads and Finds sales and discounts

I find that I spend a lot of time looking online for things that catch my eye, good deals, wish list items and things that we made or I made need. I have the tendency to save them all of them to various favouriting and bookmarks sites. What I end up with is just a huge list of items that continue to grow and that no one sees but me so this week I decided that I might start compiling things that I gather through the week into a collage at the top of this post. As for the best deal of this week, Tom found a pair of Frye Harness boots in his size at Value Village for $20. That was the best deal in a long time. They are like this in the brown colour. I can’t believe his luck sometimes.

Weekly Finds:

  1. My jacket is on sale. I love this one and it has been worn a million times.
  2. This H&M hanging picture frame would look great in a place that doesn’t have a lot of room to put pictures.
  3. Gap Super High Rise Cone Denim® Button-Fly Straight Jeans in Destructed. the cut and colour of these jeans remind me so much of the vintage 501 button fly. I really want to try these on……and they are on sale.
  4. H&M loafers that resemble everyone’s favourite Gucci 😉 But for only $29.99.
  5. Madewell bralette in a fabulous colour. I’m looking to expand from my basic black bras that I rotate daily.

  7. Alex and Ani Harry Potter Glasses Wrap Ring is something both me and the girls would enjoy. They have a few styles and colours to choose from.

  9. H&M Metal Pot plant is a nice touch when you are looking to freshen up the place a bit. A great price too.
  10. Sophie Anderson Nilsa circle toquilla-straw cross-body bag. I have a thing for circle purses right now and this one is gorgeous with the green accent, but it’s expensive. This one and this one are a much more inexpensive version.
  11. MANGO Knit striped sweater because stripes are always a good idea.
  12. Island Rope Hammock Chair if I could find a way to attach this to my ceiling without ripping down the roof and we had more room, I would totally have one of these. It is a fantastic price too.

  20. Madewell Band Ring. I love the simplicity and look of a thick ring as a statement piece and this is gorgeous for a low price.

  1. Oh man, this is so awesome! I love how you put the visual together…and those clothes…and the other fun stuff. I hope you have a great weekend, Sara. I’ll be spending a bit of time perusing this fun stuff, then painting a vanity. Cheers, Ardith

    • Thanks! I’m glad you liked it Ardith. I’m not always sure when I try something new, but I figured that I find a million things and deals weekly so I might as well share it with people who appreciate that kind of thing. Have fun painting!

  2. i do the same thing, i’ve got a million tabs open on my laptop at any given time, plus i’ve got lists written all over my notebook of items i’m lacking or packing lists for future trips! i add stuff to shopping bags online without actually checking out, but my husband thinks i’m crazy for my version of “window shopping”. gaps having an extra 50 % off sale at the moment, and bloomingdales is having a home sale today as well, and they have a crazy good deal on a nespresso bundle; seriously, 70 % off. i was so tempted but we already have 2 coffee makers and a french press.

    • Hahaha! It sounds so much like me. My husband’s always like, “if your computer is lagging close some damn tabs.” Ummm no way. That’s sacrilegious 😉 I also have a million notes scrawled everywhere. I get immense satisfaction jotting it all down on paper. My desk is complete disorder and chaos but yet there is still an organized system only I understand.

  3. Hey Sara! I love the new idea. I also have fafillion tabs open and I try to save it to various locations. Any good system you suggest? none so far have worked for me. I tried saving in bookmarks, evernote, using Google save to inbox but then everything gets lost in the shuffle. I love the layout you did but that looks like it took WORK.

    • It can be a little work 😉 but once you get the gist of navigating photoshop and such it isn’t too bad. The two bookmarking sites I use most are Pinterest (secret boards) and Pocket. Between the two I can pretty much save anything. There is an app called instapaper that I use more for articles I want to read later but I don’t use that as often as the other two.

      • Awesome thanks! I use Pinterest but then that gets overwhelming. Have no clue how you do it all!
