What I Bought This Week

It’s time for another edition of What I Bought this week!  Here are this week’s purchases under $10:

  • Silicone Straws (Amazon) ($6.99): These are (in my opinion), the best reusable straws.  They are BPA-free, dishwasher safe and fit perfectly in a 30oz Yeti tumbler.  I have lost a few over the years (they last forever if you clean them well), so it was time for a fresh set.  I much prefer these to the reusable metal and glass straws because I don’t like when they hit my teeth. Eek!   Just a personal preference.


  • Aldi Black Tie Succulents (Aldi) ($3.99/each): I think my last What I Bought this week also featured Aldi succulents, but I just cannot get enough plants right now! Aren’t these cute?  I saw way smaller ones at Target for $7.99 yesterday, so if you have an Aldi, I highly recommend going there instead.
  • 3-Pack Mini Candle Tins (Aldi) ($4.99): I picked up a few packs of these and gifted them to W’s teachers along with Starbucks gift cards.  Aldi has three different scent options (Birch and Fig Leaf/Dune Grass and Driftwood/Sandalwood & Oak Moss Set, Pink Peony/Papaya Coconut/Amber Currant Set or Spruce Cuttings/Visions of Sugar Plum/Peppermint Bark Set) and I really don’t think you can beat the $4.99 price tag. They are basically the same as the Voluspa Mini Tin Candle Trio on Anthropologie for $24 right now!


  • Target Warm White String Lights (Target Dollar Spot) ($5): These have been all over Instagram and my Target has been sold out for weeks.  They had they yesterday, so I scooped up a few bags and talked another lady into buying some too.  They don’t look overly impressive in the package, but when they are all lit up (they are battery operated)?  OMG gorgeous.

~heyday™ AirPod Case – Silicone (Target) ($9.99): I have been needing (okay wanting) an AirPod case and this one is perfect!  Super cute and I love the rose gold hardware.  This should also help because B and I have issues getting ours mixed up!

Have you picked up anything amazing under $10 lately?  If so please share – I think we could all use a few more stocking stuffer ideas!!
