Whoever came up with the idea of the Dollar Spot at Target and made the decision to put it right inside the front door is brilliant. I get sucked in pretty much every time I walk in the door and find something I "can't live without" and I can usually justify spending the money since it is just a dollar.
I always keep my eyes out for fun holiday decor items because if I am only going to use something for about a month a year it doesn't have to be super well made. The other great thing to look for in the dollar section is little fun things to send to my friends and family as random care packages or cheer up gifts. Little notepads and stickers and other fun things!
One of my favorite things I have ever found at Target has to be my wooden stand/bowl thing that lives on my dining table. Target still has this wooden bowl that looks to be pretty much the same as the one I bought last year. I use this bowl in pretty much all of my decorating so I have definitely gotten my money worth with this one. Pictures of my St. Patrick's Day table coming next week (or maybe even later this week if I remember to take pictures).
They don't have a huge selection of fresh fruits and veggies at my Target but their packaged food section is pretty great. They don't have everything but they usually have the best prices on the things they do have so I end up getting random food items at Target. My fiance has been on a tuna sandwich (yuck) kick lately and after checking tuna prices at all my normal shopping locations (Trader Joe's, Costco and Fresh and Easy) I discovered Target had the best prices. Not the first place I would head to for groceries but it is nice to be able to grab a few things at Target when I am there anyway.
