I was shopping for a waterproof matress pad at Target this weekend (oh, the glamourous life of a mom!), when I came across some great deals. All of the Christmas stuff was 90% off. I got a couple of stockings for my new dogs for about $1 each. It's a great time to stock up on wrapping supplies too. A lot of the paper was neutral enough that it could be used on gifts throughout the year, not just Christmas.
January is also a great time to buy linens. Many stores have white sales in January and have their best prices on linens. I found some basic cotton sheets, perfect for the kids, for about $4/sheet and cotton/poly sets that included flat sheet, fitted sheet, and pillowcases for $8.
Danielle Oakey had recently blogged about Target's current home decor, so of course I had to check that out as well. It did not disappoint in person. I saw a few things that I would like, but I'll wait a month or so. Decor doesn't seem to sell well at my Target and it always ends up on clearance for crazy prices.
Here are some favorites:
Gold? Chevron? I'm sold on this cute lampshade.
And this pillow. The pillow comes in a pretty pink or teal chevron too.
Who doesn't love a little global accent?
Throw one of these on top of a stack of books and add some pretty style to your bookshelves.
Target has come a long way from the cheap retailer I remember from childhood!
