Pick of the Week
It's pick of the week time: each Sunday I pick one great buy from Target's Weekly Ad and highlight it on my blog. Today's pick was hard, because it's Dollar Week at Target, which means just about everything you need for your home and family is on sale. But today I'm picking Target's Home plush pillow (with hypoallergenic fiberfill) for just $4 (standard or queen size) after remembering this story I saw on The Today Show last week. It was about "When to Replace Your Stuff", and for bed pillows, it reported that you should replace them at least once a year. Why you ask? Well, it seems that hair and body oils will have soaked into a pillow's fabric and stuffing after a year of nightly use ...making it a breeding ground for odor-causing bacteria and allergy-triggering dust mites. Ewwwww! Better to spend a few dollars than to have breathe in all that icky stuff (like this guy in the picture).
