This winter in Minnesota has been unseasonably mild and…odd. We were outside for a family walk without jackets just a couple weekends ago, then we had cold days, then more mild days, some crazy wind, and then yesterday, tornadoes, followed by some short-lived snow overnight.
What the heck, Minnesota?
So…I’ve decided that winter’s DONE (woohoo!), which means getting ready for (official) warm weather, Easter and – spring cleaning! That also means out with the old, in with the new. And one place I like to get “new” is Gordmans.
I’ve written many times here about Gordmans, because of the huge variety of attractive, affordably-priced items for everyone in your family.
Well, my daughter and I recently visited to check out their spring items for everything from decorating to home organization…and fell in love with way more than seasonal items, all at frugal mom-approved prices.
Here’s a list of our 10 favorite deals from our visit:
- Easter and other seasonal goodies
- Home decor and organization
- Unique gift ideas (for others OR yourself)
- Women’s apparel
- Girls’ apparel
- Everything COFFEE
- Things I needed but didn’t realize I’d find here
And a (mostly visual) recap of our shopping experience…
When we walked in, it was St. Patrick’s Day and Easter fun galore – with cute home decorations and gifts in pretty displays!
And of course…there’s EASTER CANDY. All you need to fill those Easter baskets (and satisfy some chocolate cravings in the meantime). I’ve never heard of Twix eggs – yummy!
HOME DECOR AND STORAGE
When you walk in you may think that Gordmans has mostly decor for the home, but get further into the store and you’ll find an abundance of practical, versatile items to make your life easier.
Like these decorative storage boxes and baskets. TONS of them in all sizes, and for so many styles and tastes. If you’re doing spring cleaning and organization and want to make your home more attractive, these are plenty of good, budget-friendly aids to check out here!
And of course they have many fun options for storing your kids’ stuff. I bought my daughter this Disney Frozen storage box for only $14.99!
And one of my favorite areas – the CANDLES! I don’t usually buy many candles because good, quality candles often cost more than I want to spend. But here Gordmans has many candles, including YANKEE CANDLE, at great prices – like $12.99 for the 20 oz. Cappuccino jar candle I bought! My daughter will tell you I couldn’t stop smelling it…
So many great gift ideas…like for wedding and baby showers. There are aisles and aisles of gift ideas that are so much fun to explore!
TREASURES FOR ALL MOMS
A mom could easily fill a shopping cart quickly here yet not spend a fortune. I had been looking for a certain type of vest and found the perfect one at Gordmans! I got this vest for $24.99 and the sunglasses (which I needed) for $12.99. I also have bought scarves and purses here – the Guess purses in this picture were each under $50.
And my daughter found a cute nightgown for under $10 that included a sleep mask.
You never know what you’re going to find here that you need…like non-slip hangers! I have these in my closet – they are so much better than wire or plastic hangers! Clothes don’t fall off! These are the lowest priced hangers like these that I’ve found…
And of course, some mom indulgences.
There’s an aisle filled with coffees, coffee syrups and sauces (like these – yummm – I bought the Dark Chocolate Sauce), as well as every possible mug you could ever desire, and some cookies and other goodies.
If you browse through the kitchen aisles you’ll find some great gift-worthy towels (like below).
And to help you enjoy some of the treats you’ll probably buy here, they, of course, sell body shapers…
What I love is that this isn’t even half of the store. There are also clothes for men, boys, girls & infants, plus shoes, toys, cards, pet items, bedding, and even furniture!
And you can shop online at Gordmans.com. I suggest signing up for G Rewards for special promotions from time to time. I’m on their email list and they send you coupons and other deals.
