World Market

Let's just talk about World Market for a second (some parts of the country call it Cost Plus).  I recently joined their Explorer Program and I think you should too.  You basically use your account # every time you make purchas.  Once you purchase $100 worth of food products you get a $10 gift card.  There's no expiration either to get to your $100 purchase total, so you could take an entire year to do it if you want.  Also, for every 6 bags of coffee you buy you get one free one.  And if you buy a bag of coffee on a Wednesday it counts as if you had bought two.  Not to mention their coffee is YUM.  We currently have the Texas Turtle Blend (bought on a Wednesday, two points!).  So besides the $10 and the coffee deals you also get coupons and recently I had a random $10 off $30 which I put to good use.  

Food I enjoy from World Market includes: coffee, chocolate from around the world, British items for my husband (like HP Sauce, Heinz Beans, various chocolate), Maui Sweet Onion Chips, lemon pancake mix, fruit jams and preserves, baking items, pasta sauces, and chicken korma sauce.  I also enjoy their wine and beer (I don't think that counts towards the $100 food purchase though unfortunately!).  We recently tried Buffalo Bills Orange Blossom Cream Ale and it is delish.  

I wish I could take you all on a shopping trip there!  Besides the food section I also love their patio/outdoor items, kitchenware (particularly serving items and coffee mugs), home accessories, greeting cards, and fancy french soaps.  Last time I was there I got this pretty teapot for only $15:

I also want to mention that they are currently doing a $100 gift card a day giveaway on their Facebook page until May 27th.  The only bad thing is that my local World Market closed, but the nearest one is only about 12 miles away so it's not THAT horrible.  

*I am not affiliated in any way with World Market, I just really enjoy this store :)

I love World Market too! That tea pot is so cute. I think I need to pay a visit to them this weekend.

You should! They have plates and cups in that pattern also. I want to collect teapots, so now I have three. :)
