How to Find the Best Deals at HomeGoods
Try "Freestyle" Shopping
"Some of my favorite HomeGoods purchases have come from what I call 'freestyle shopping,' where you see an item and remember, 'yes, I actually need this woven laundry basket, and it’s under $25!'" says Reimold. While you can certainly go into the trip with certain items in mind, be open to the unexpected finds that come your way.
Learn When Your Store Restocks
"Be sure to make friends with your store manager for the scoop on delivery days and times," recommends Reimold. "Each store’s delivery days are different. My favorite local Nashville store unloads on Wednesday and Saturday mornings."
Once you know the delivery day, Reimold suggests shopping the day after, right when the store opens. "I prefer to shop the day after because it gives the store associates 12 to 24 hours to unload the trucks and stock the shelves."
Smith says she prefers not to wait: "I like to be there while they are still restocking the shelves with new arrivals, so I’m the first to look and grab those eye-catching finds for my projects." No matter if you prefer to wait or shop as the associates restock, both experts agree: Get there early in the morning, so you'll have first pick of those freshly stocked treasures.
If You Love Something, Grab It
"Pro tip: Don’t take your eyes off an item you love!" says Smith. "If it’s too big for the cart, definitely have it stored at the front with an associate and put your name on it."
Do a Final Lap
No matter if you make a beeline for your favorite sections or slowly meander aisle-by-aisle, it's a good idea to take a quick final lap around the store before you leave. There's so much to look at, it can be easy to miss that must-have vase or table lamp hidden on a shelf.
