    My favorite places to buy smell goods #HomeWithJoy

    There’s something about walking into a room that smells soooo good! It’s an instant mood booster. While I love shopping for smell goods, I also don’t want to spend too much money.


    I wanted to share some of my favorite stores to find smell goods & some of the specific items I’ve purchased from these stores. Without further adieu, here we go!

    TJ Maxx & Home Goods

    The candle sections of TJ Maxx and Home Goods are outstanding! There’s a wide variety of candle sizes and scents that are so affordable. I have no problem spending $10 for a huge 3-wick candle. Oh, and both stores sell candles by DW Home & Sand + Fog. #notsponsored


    Over the years, Target has upped its candle game. Some of their scents are close to popular candle brands and much cheaper. Target also has a pretty impressive variety of wax melts, oil diffusers, and room sprays. Next time you’re in the store, take a walk down the home scents aisles.


    I buy a lot of incense from Target. It smells delightful and I get at least 20 incense sticks for less than $2.00. A steal! They also have a huge variety of candles and wax melts that smell lovely.

    Bath and Body Works

    I love the wallflowers from Bath and Body Works. I love the range of scents. They’re on sale often and last quite a long time.


    Kroger carries some good-smelling candles and oil plugin scents that go on sale often. If you have coupons, you can save even more money. Definitely worth checking out.


    Did you know Kohl’s sells Yankee Candles? Yep, they sure do and they’re on sale throughout the year. Plus Kohl’s always has a coupon.

    These are a few of my favorite places to buy smell goods. Where do you get your smell goods from? I’m always interested in finding new places.

    Until next time,

    My Favorite Fall Home Scent

    In past years, I was obsessed with Mahogany Leather by Bath and Body Works. It smelled like a man’s leather jacket. As soon as I declared my love for it, the scent was discontinued insert angry face here.

    Just when I had given up, Glade  restored my obsession with Woodside Library.

    If anyone is familiar with Mahogany Leather by Bath & Body Works, Woodside Library is a close match. It smells sooo good! Perfect for someone who loves fall but don’t always want to smell pumpkin spice and/or apples. Woodside Library comes in a spray, candle, wax melts, and scented oil warmer.

    For my frugal folks, there are plenty of coupons online and in Sunday papers for Glade products. Save yourself some money while you’re buying fall smells goods.
