Target Treasures!

So I don't know if its just a stay at home mom thing, or just a mom thing, or even a girl thing, but I LOVE Target.  I find any excuse I can to go there.  I need diapers; well then I have to go to Target.  I need razors; Target it is.  My furnace needs a new filter (did you know you're supposed to change those every month? I didn't!), must get one from Target.  Now I could get these things at any store and probably one closer to my house, and for cheaper.  But I would never deny myself a chance to browse the beautiful, colorful aisles of my favorite store. For some reason everything appeals to me there.  I'm not sure what exactly it is, but when I look at anything there I immediately want it and can actually envision it in my house or me or Bug wearing it.  Honestly I can't remember the last time I went to Target and spent less than $50. Is that bad?!  Even if I'm just going for diapers, I always leave with a cartful.  And recently I've been extending my Target experience by getting lunch there. Bug eats all 3 of the chicken tenders she gets in her meal, and I pick at her fries and drink a Starbucks. So anyway probably my favorite part of Target is the dollar section in the front (which I've noticed recently has jacked up its prices to $2.50. Its ok; I'll deal.) Bug also loves this section because they always have lots of stickers and little notebooks. Recently, I was very excited to find that all the Fall/Halloween decor things in this section were actually really cute. So I just wanted to share my finds with you.  Now I'm pretty sure all these things were $2.50, but its still a pretty good deal!

Front: Tea towels, rug, candy dish. Back: decorative pumpkins, yard stake, door sign, spooky word decoration.
Not bad for some quick decorations around the house! Warning though, I went back to get more yard stakes and they were all gone, so hurry up and go get yours!

I also wanted to share this nail polish I discovered over the summer. I've only seen it at Target (not that I go to a lot of other stores), but its usually down on the bottom shelf under the OPI or essie (expensive) nail polish. Its called Sinful Color and its $1.99!! They have the same cute colors as the rest of the brands and I think it stays on as about as well as them too. Here is just a small sample of the colors I have.

One last find I want to share with you all. I love all of Target's kids clothes and I always find the cutest things for Bug. Well this is my favorite item for the fall. She looks super cute in this cardigan, and she wants to wear it all the time!

So what are you doing still sitting there?! Go to Target to get some of this stuff now! And come back and share your recent "Target Treasures"!
