Fab Find: Threshold Gold Mixing Bowl Set

Reader Cotton Candy sent me this latest find: a set of shiny gold mixing bowls by Threshold. At just $24.99 for a set of three, these stainless steel bowls can be used to whip up a variety of holiday treats. And with their non-skid silicone base, they can be used as festive serving bowls as well. The only bummer is that they are hand-wash only (and are not dishwasher safe).

Green Monday Deals at Target

Today is Green Monday, aka the day when everyone panics about getting their online purchases in time for Christmas. Ebay coined the term "Green Monday" more than a decade ago after it noticed an uptick in orders on a particular day. It traditionally falls on the second Monday in December, the last day with at least 10 days left to order before Christmas. This year, it's December 11.

Green Monday has become the biggest online shopping day in December, and one of the biggest of the year. And in honor of Green Monday, Target is running an online-only deal: save $20 for every $100 you spend on gifts for just about everyone on your list. Limit $100 savings in total, and restrictions apply, so check here for all the details.

Target's fashion turn: I'm just not feeling it

I honestly didn't know what title to attach to this post. Regular readers of this blog know that I haven't been a big fan of Target's new fashion offerings, as cited here and in other posts in recent months. In fact, yesterday on my lunch break I wandered around the Target store near my office really trying to find something to buy, but nothing enticed me enough to even try on.

When Target carefully curates their styles, as on their TargetStyle Facebook page and in fashion posts on their corporate blog, they can encourage me to buy - like this red plaid A New Day dress that I may give a try. But for the most part, I'm just not feeling them anymore. The upside is that I'm saving a lot of money (lol!) but the downside is that I haven't found another fashion outlet to fill Target's void yet.

The Look for Less: West Elm vs. Project62

I love the look of an upholstered bench in an entryway or at the foot of a bed. Here are two great examples... you could opt for the one shown on top by West Elm, which will set you back $499 in the fabric shown. Or you could save a lot of dough by choosing the option on the bottom by Project62 (at Target) which is just $149.99.

Monday, November 27, 2017 15% off sitewide, today only

Tamra Judge goes Black Friday shopping at empty Target...

I meant to post this the other day... Tamra Judge had an unusual time shopping on Friday morning, when she found herself at a very empty Target.

According to People Magazine, the 50-year-old Real Housewives of Orange County star was anticipating to battle the Black Friday crowds as she hit the chain store for some early morning doorbusters — the first time she’s ever participated in the annual shopping craze.

Instead, Judge’s Target store in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, was vacant. “Hmmm not what I expected,” Judge wrote in the caption of an Instagram video showing the empty aisels. “First time ever Black Friday shopping. I was so excited to fight the crowds!”

“I got up for this, the crowds!” she said sarcastically in the video. “Target? Not too many crowds.”
