Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, dear readers! Have you been shopping any of the after-Christmas sales at Tar-jay? I didn't really strike any deals there until today. Shown is my new Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Bud Vase (small size) that I scored for just - wait for it - 69-cents! It was 90% off (regularly $6.99) and my local Target had at least a dozen of them left. I also got the larger size (regularly $9.99) for just 99-cents.

How about y'all out there? Have you scored any great Target clearance deals lately?

Merry Christmas 2018!

Merry Christmas, dear readers! I snapped this cute Christmas pillow by Threshold at Target several weeks ago, and have been waiting until today to post it. I hope you and yours are having a wonderful holiday season. And just a reminder: all Target stores are closed today, but will reopen tomorrow with tons of after-Christmas sales. Or, if you can't wait 'til tomorrow, head on over to Target.com where there's already plenty of items marked down up to 50% off.

Holiday Creep: Part 2

Besides already putting out Valentine's Day merch, my local Target has also largely cleared out the Holiday decor to make way for Spring stuff - as shown in this picture here. From the looks of it, it seems like neutrals and cool blues will rule for the coming season.

Holiday Creep: Extreme Edition

Last year, I complained that Target started putting out their Valentine's Day merchandise on Christmas Eve. This year, the holiday creep has gotten even more extreme, with the Bullseye putting out V-day merch even earlier. This pic was snapped a few days ago - on December 18, to be exact - in the Dollar Spot. I was searching for Christmas gift bags, and instead I found these Valentine-themed ones.

Target's Holiday Gift Displays: Yay or Nay?

I just realized that I haven't posted in over two weeks... chalk it up to holiday madness, I guess! While I have visited Target lately,  as the holidays grow closer and the crowds increase, I'll be avoiding the place as much as possible.

Another thing I hate (besides crowds) are these "holiday gift displays" that have popped up around Target (as shown here) smack dab in the middle of the aisles. Is it just my imagination, or are there twice as many of them this year as in years past? I get it: Target is trying to cross-sell/up-sell on "impulse" items while you shop. But these additional displays make it harder to navigate your shopping cart through the store, and honestly most of them look rather junky to me.

Whaddya think, readers? Are you a fan of these pop-up holiday displays, or are you annoyed by them (as I am)?

BOGO: 60% off Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

Target is running a BOGO deal today and tomorrow only: buy one, get one 60% off on clothing, shoes & accessories for the whole family. The one catch? It's only available for Target.com purchases, and a quick search (at least for the things I really wanted) already showed many items already sold out online for shipping, and available in stores only (with no "store pickup" option).

Back at Target: Dylan's Candy Bar

Remember earlier this year when Target featured sweet treats from Dylan's Candy Bar for Valentine's Day? Well the brand is back just in time for the holidays, with a wide array of confections (as shown here). Look for the sweet selection in a special display near the Women's Department, or find them online here. But a word to the wise: while these treats boast colorful packaging and cute names like "Pucker Up, Buttercup" and "Hangry Fix", the quality isn't the best. I bought some back in February, and I found the chocolate to be chalky and the gummies to be stale.
