We live in a very small city in the middle-of-nowhere Idaho. It’s where Chris grew up and where we happily call home now. There are two grocery stores, about 15 fast food options, Brigham Young University-Idaho, countless potato fields and a Super Walmart. Everything else is about 30-40 minutes away so we’re used to working with what we have.

When Walmart asked me to share a few things I’d recommend from their home department, I was anxious to look at our local superstore in a different light and, honestly, I was blown away and surprised–I think you will be too! It’s stylish and easy breezy on the wallet. Here are 28 things I want from Walmart right now!

Pretty great, right?! We often get asked for more budget friendly options and these 28 pieces are ones I would happily put in our home. I have my eye on two of those single beds for the girls’ shared bedroom they’ve been begging for.

    We have that single bed in my daughters room in red. It’s is so cute and just perfect!

    FYI – when I view from feedly – the pictures are of dresses – not your 14 items – when I clicked to view on website it is correct – not what you want to deal with during a kitchen remodel

  9. Corine says:

    We have those wire canvas baskets for toys and they are SO sturdy! This collage is blowing my mind right now. Walmart?! Who knew?

  10. Monica C. says:

    Julia, all of the links seem to go to the wooden serving tray :(

    • Julia says:

      All fixed! So sorry for the glitch.

    • Kristi says:

      Love this selection! I would never have guessed that some of those items were at Walmart. I will definitely have to take another look at the department the next time I’m there. Really great and affordable options!

Here’s the crazy thing about me and inspiration: If you were to go into my bathroom inspiration board on Pinterest, there are bathrooms for sure, but there are also kitchens, there are closets, there are mudrooms, and there are hallways of houses! I’m not looking to copy and paste an inspirational image. I’m taking notes […]
