Target Things

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:
I have a weakness for Fu dogs and these pups came in a variety of colors.  I also like the gray laquered box pictured here.

Gold? Chevron?  I'm sold on this cute lampshade.


And this pillow. The pillow comes in a pretty pink or teal chevron too.

Pretty.


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!

Thanks for sharing. I saw this chevron section in my target the other day. It's all very girlie, like it would be perfect in a single woman's apartment, so chic. But the fabric on the pillows are like a shiny satin, and just seemed way to feminine personally for my home. I love that they are finally figuring out chevron is big. I find target and home goods are at least a year behind blogs.

Every time I go to Target for dog food I get sucked right into the home goods area!! You are a menace, Suzy...now I have to go check out those chevron pillows! :)

I LOVE that storage bin so much. Will have to check that out. The Target that is down the road from us isn't my favorite. I love the one near my MIL and they always have great inventory of home and decor stuff.

Okay, as I die hard Target fan, I'm so disappointed in myself for not knowing about all these fabulous finds!!! That chevron lamp shade is bomb-diggity...
