Shop Savvy with Lulu the Baker

Melissa Bahen blogs about food, family, and farm life at Lulu the Baker. She’s currently putting her keen shopping skills to the test building a dream home (check our Style Spotters blog to see her progress).

Melissa's Picks: She counts Home Goods as a favorite, as well as Pottery Barn and Barn Light Electric. Her tip to keep costs down? Be patient and flexible: Scour the sale sections and look for a coupon code before you buy. Melissa keeps costs in check by splurging on small indulgences like high-quality chocolate, but save by freshening up outdated furniture with a coat of paint and new hardware.

But let's not forget about the food! Melissa calls the Pretzel-Crusted Banana Split Ice Cream Pie filled with hot fudge and caramel sauces, Nutella, and two flavors of ice cream that's topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries a real winner, as well as the Drop Sugar Cookies (which require no chilling or rolling). And she credits the Carmelitas, a recipe from her little sister, as the recipe that really made her blog take off!
