Top 10 Fave Buys in 09'

I realize that this is random, but I thought I'd share a list of my top 10 favorite finds or buys in 09'...

No, B is not the buy...but his binkie is! I really heart Gumdrops pacifiers. They rock. And everyone asks where I get them. The only negative is that you can't just go buy them at the store, you've got to order them from Hawaii Medical. But they ship them to you quickly and you can buy them in bulk.

When Chris and I got married we received a set of knives as a gift - but after about a month it was clear that those knives just wouldn't stay sharp. I asked Chris for a set of Rachel Ray Furi knives for Christmas and he got them for me. I LOVE THESE KNIVES! The handle is great and your hand never slips off of it, but the blades really do stay sharp!

Chris has several North Face jackets and he's always saying how warm they are. I didn't really buy it that they would be any warmer than any other jacket - until I put it on one day and went outside. Oh. My. Word. So, he had to get me my own so I'd quit stealing his.

You may remember my jeans post? Or the follow up on the jeans I bought? Well, Paige Premium Denim is my new BFF for jeans. Anyone of any size an wear them. And if you've, say, just had a baby and are a little insecure with how your waist fits into your old jeans, then check these out!

Do you remember my old slippers? And how much Chris loathed them? I asked you all for advice and most of you loved Ugg Slippers - so that is what he got me for Christmas. And you were SO right! Love em'!

If you've ever met me in person, then you've seen me whip out my Burt's Bees chapstick...a lot. I mean, I apply it probably 25 times a day. So maybe this isn't a 2009 top pick...its a forever top pick!

I love these open loose sweaters. I have two just like the one below from Nordstroms that I ordered on clearance for like $14.00 or something crazy cheap like that. Color? Oh, black and gray of course!

Dust it. Need I say more? If you missed my post on how Dust It changed my life, just go here.

Not a fan of boxed dinner kits? You've got to taste this one. You can see how easy it was for me here.

I'm in love with the Conair 1875 hair dryer I got at Wal-Mart for $14.00. We stayed at a hotel recently that had it and I loved it so much that I actually wrote them for the exact info on it. My hair is dry in like 3 min's with this!

I've got a ton more favorites like my long pj's from Old Navy and a cool dual shower head that's changed how I feel about getting up in the morning, but I had to stop somewhere!
What were your fave buys in 09'?

I would have to say my favorite buys were my iTouch, North Face jacket, and my new laptop. I got it on Black Friday for a little under $300. It's usually $750!

Thanks for your tips. I too love Burts Bees, but I think I might check out your blow dryer. I have a ton of thick curly hair and I diffuse it but it literally takes a good 30 minutes for me to be done--it'd be great if it could be done in just half that time!

Those sweaters you bought are fabulous also, I think I may look into them. :)

I will have to try out that hair dryer, b/c mine is about to die! Thanks for the advise!

Mommy said...

Creamy Basil Chicken from Macaroni Grill - We are BIG fan of that as well. It is a good meal even if you dont have the chicken to go in it!

I love hearing about favorite things from people, it's interesting to see what you liked! I may just have to try out some of your "favorite things!"

I love MG's dinner kits so easy and they're yummy! We buy a bag of chicken breasts and I love how easy dinner is.My favorite buy for this year is Disney bluray with dvd and digital download. Disney was sending me (through Disney movie rewards) $10 and $8 off coupons left and right. All were on sale when I bought them so I spent less than $12 on each. I got the new Tinker bell movie for just $3 after coupon and mail in rebate.

Oh and if you go to the website restaurantfavorites.com they have a coupon you can use for A $1 off MG or Wanchai Ferry dinner kits.

My other favorite is Chipotle but you might have to go to Springfield or Tulsa to get to one.

I'm with Becky- I love hearing about people's favorite things! You helped me find the Dust It and that has been one of my fav things this year. My favorite thing of the decade has to be my foundation-Christian Dior Air Flash. Love it.

We had to buy a new laptop last week and I am loving it too. It has photoshop and all kinds of good things on here! (It is a Dell Studio.)

Cori said...

Ooh, I might have to try that blow dryer too; I'm not liking my current cheapy one.
