Target Haul: Plaid Edition

One of my favorite things to do is go to Target. It doesn’t matter if I’m looking for something specific or not, I will always walk out with something. Target has everything that I love, from clothing to home goods. I even bought my new iPhone from Target; it’s literally a one-stop shop. Every trip to Target has been rewarding, but this past week’s haul was the best yet!

Every single thing that I bought was discounted and had a plaid pattern! And if you know me, plaid is my favorite pattern, especially during the holiday season. Let me know you what I excitingly bought!

First off, Target is owning the home décor department. I mean gold and marble textured accessories, faux fur pillows and rugs, and even their candles are giving Diptyque a run for their money. A few weeks ago I saw this porcelain coffee carafe with a stainless steel gold lid from their home department. On the packaging it says it’s a French press - it's literally a fancy pitcher. Even if I can’t make coffee with this, it’s perfect for storing large batches of coffee I make for the whole week as it can hold up to 16 cups.The best part of this purchase? It was 70% off! It was originally priced at $19.99, but I got it for $5.98!

Also coming from the home department is this mini rolling pin. It’s great for small projects because of it’s size (hint: I used it for next week’s post). Because of the outer paint, I don’t think I’d use it on food because it might transfer. It’s made out of stoneware, so it’s pretty sturdy. It also has wooden handles making it easy to hold on to. Overall, it has a smooth roll and has been great so far. This too was discounted for 70%, and went from $12.00 to $3.99.

Moving away from the home department I found something I also had my eye on, these journals from the Adam Lippes for Target collection. Of course, his whole collection had a plaid theme going on from this ponchos down to his dog bowls. The only thing keeping me from buying the dog bowl was the fact that I don’t own a dog. The set of journals comes in a set of three with three different designs. I haven’t used a journal yet, but they’re pocket sized, great for carrying around and taking quick notes. As a designer, I’m always finding inspirations and always needing to make notes to myself, so why not have a fashionable journal to write in? These journals were on clearance for 30%, buying them for $6.99 instead of $9.99. 

The plaid plate I bought was from a few weeks back from Target's Threshold line, it wasn't on sale but still a great price of $3.99! And the scarf was not a Target purchase, but went with everything else!  

What to learn how to be a super Target shopper like me? Here are some quick tips for shopping at target:

  • discount stickers- when you see that glorious red sale sticker on a product look up at the top right corner. The number indicated is the percentage markdown, so it can be from 15, 30, 50 and 70 percent off. Only holiday items can be marked down 90 percent. This will tell you if the product will be marked down even more. Also, when you look at the red sticker and the prices ends with .06 or .08, it will be marked down even further.
     
  • end aisles -the end of the aisles are where most of the clearance items will be

Happy Shopping!
