Following Instagram accounts and blogs that updates all the new items in Target’s clearance is the best and worst thing that I have done to myself. I feel like it has made me even more addicted to Target. Case in point? It was 4°F (-15°C) early this morning, and I dragged my husband out to two Targets near me even though I’ve already gotten some good deals the last two days.
We were so lucky to find the last few Philips Christmas LED Illuminate Starter Kits at 90% off. Our new house will finally have outdoors lights for Christmas next year! I can hardly wait. We may actually put some of the mini string lights up just to familiarize ourselves with the Philips Illuminate app.
Without further ado, I present you our loot.
- Washi Tape – $1
- Starbucks Ornaments – $2.38(70% off)
- Mini Roses Grow Kit – $3
- Red Sports Jacket for Dogs – $2.99 (70% off)
- Maltesers Christmas Gift Box – $1.24 (75% off)
Have a great 2018, everyone!
Here is my messy Christmas mantle this year. It’s a mishmash of new and old stuff. I think my favorite buy from Target’s Bullseye’s Playground this year are the $3 ceramic tealight candle holder houses. I wish they had more designs, but it’s also fun to collect them over the years if they continue to put out new ones. There were $1 and $3 bottlebrush trees that come in silver, gold, white and ombre pink. Many people on the Target Facebook groups love the $5 sleigh. It looks really good when you add gnomes or even the $2 fake snowballs that Target is also selling.
Am I the only one that can’t resist all the Christmas stationery, especially when they are all $1 to $3? The stamps, ink pads and sticker labels are a dollar each. The Christmas cards (16pcs) and gift wrapping tissue paper were $3. The snow globe jars are also $3, so I grabbed all three designs.
Target Reindeer garland
Target Christmas Advent Calendar Garland
Target Christmas Lights garland
Target Snowflake Garland
Last but not the least, there are many garlands and signs for $3. The designs for the garlands are a little on the kiddish side, but I had to get at least one garland. I ended up purchasing the reindeer garland to go with some decor I got from Dollar Tree and the multi-color lights garland. The Merry Christmas sign above my mantle and the Fresh Cut Christmas Trees sign (pictured below) are both $3 which is quite a steal if you ask me.
Let me know if you need the DCPI for any of the items. I’ll try to find them for you to track them down on brickseek.com.
Similar Post: The secret to get the best deals in Target
Hi everyone, sorry for taking such a long break. I’m trying to recover from my flu and sore throat after our trip to visit Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Los Angeles early November. I can’t wait to tell you more. For now, I’m going to share how I shop for my home decor at Target.
Target has a section of good deals in the stores. It’s called Bullseye’s Playground and the items cost either $1, $3 or $5. So far, I have realized that they stock up their seasonal items about one to two months ahead of time. Halloween items were available around end August, and Christmas items have been out since 1st November.
The more I dig into the items that they release each season, the more I realize I need to up my game. Here’s my secret:
- Join the Facebook groups that posts good deals on Target. I have been pretty obsessed with Bullseye’s Playground Fanatics. Nothing beats chatting with a group of people who like the same things you do. Lots of people are really helpful and friendly too.
Track the items you like thru Brickseek
- Brickseek.com is a great site to track down the items that you want. It works for a few stores beyond Target too. What I usually do is find the DPCI of the items I want from Target and use Brickseek to find out which Target outlet still has the item. So far, it has been very accurate for me. Most people on Instagram or Facebook would tell you the DPCI number if you ask them. The numbers are usually located on the price tag of the item itself.
Let me know if you have any questions, or if you love Target as much as I do. 😉
Our living room is still pretty plain even though we have moved in for close to a year. Furnishing a house is just so expensive that we would probably take quite a few years to complete everything. As you can see, our priority is comfort for our living room. My husband insisted that we get recliners, so we got a two seater recliner as well as a regular three seater because that was cheaper. Our coffee table was a steal ($30) from an estate sale. I think it’s a West Elm piece that had damaged corners. The rug was left behind from the previous house owner.
I decided to put together some of the Target Project 62™ pieces just for fun because a girl can dream right? We are missing a small end table, and I thought the Mawr Metal Accent Table would look great at the corner along with the Cohasset Table Lamp. The pink tone of the table lamp will go well with the art pieces I picked for the wall. I threw in some cushions too because we don’t have any at the moment.
1. Framed Knots Decorative Wall Sculpture 2. Framed Abstract Watercolor Wall Canvas 3. You Are My Sunshine Wall Décor *This is the only piece not from Project 62™* 4. Color Block Throw Pillow 5. Solid Textured Throw Pillow 6. Mawr Metal Accent Table White Marble/Gold
7. Cohasset Table Lamp 8. Round Wire Basket Medium – Copper 9. Hello Doormat
I would also love to get the copper Round Wire Basket for my dining room since I would usually have garden harvest sprawling all over. Last but not the least, isn’t that a cute doormat! I think it will probably be the only item I would buy.. due to my lack of spare cash!
