Sounds kinda swanky, doesn’t it? It’s not (swanky), but it is fun. The Lakeside Collection is a catalog I get 4 or 5 times a year that’s filled with inexpensive stuff for you and your home. A lot of it is pretty cheesy (toilet mug, anyone?), but there are some goodies in the mix.
On Monday I mentioned their document boxes; they also have CD boxes, magazine files, and photo boxes, all for $4.95 for a set of 5. That’s a decent price; I realize they probably aren’t as sturdy as some, but for $1/ea they’ll do the job.
I’m seriously considering ordering these monogrammed coasters. They look nice, and are only $5.95 for 4 coasters and a holder.
These melamine mixing bowls are cheerful, lightweight, and have a handle and a pouring spout. While I love my vintage Pyrex bowls, I’m a weakling and have trouble holding one up with one hand while scraping with the other. It can get messy. I think these would fix that problem.
Think of the adorable birthday cakes you could make with this mini tiered cake pan set! It’s only $7.95 for 6 pans and a decorating kit.
I’m for sure going to get some of these vinyl siding clips (maybe the brick ones too). Putting a hole in your siding is a big no-no, so I haven’t been able to hang anything on the front of the house. I have seen these elsewhere for more money; LC is selling them for $6.95 for a set of 4.
Christmas will be here before you know it, and you may be able to find some gifts in the Lakeside catalog. Last year, I made Snug-EEEs for my kids, but these ones are really cute, and only $6.95 each, which is not much more than I spent to make them.
In 2008, I made them sock monkeys. I like that they’re handmade, but Lakeside’s monkey’s are adorable. For those of you who don’t want to sew, $6.95 each is not a bad price, and a heck of a lot easier.
So, want your own catalog? Order a free one. And no, I’m not getting any compensation for this commercial!
