Due to the fact I live in a small town, we don't have a Target. Can you believe it? No Target!?! Ugh, I truly hate it! But anytime I find myself in Buffalo or Erie, you can be sure that a stop at Target is essential! I was in Erie, Pa this week and of course, we did a little shopping at Target! So, I figured for this week's HQB's Friday Five, I would address why I love this store so much! So, get ready, here are my 5 top reasons I love Target!
2. I LOVE their home décor! They must have an amazing team of interior designers because they have so many neat items! I used to love Pier 1, but they are so pricey that I could never afford anything from there. TJMaxx also has a really nice selection of home décor items too, but they are also a little pricey. Target has similar items but for less! Especially if you hit up their clearance racks, which brings me to my number three reason!
3. Target has amazing clearance! Often found on an end cap, there are always so many things marked down! Just look for those little red stickers! I can't tell you how many times I have gotten an item for 70 or 75% off the original price of something! Finding good deals like that gives me a high lol. The clearance tag itself can tell you a lot. If the price ends in $0.06 or $0.08, the item will get marked down even further. If it ends in $0.04 however, that is the best deal you are going to get! Also, looking at the top right corner of the clearance tag, you should see a number...30, 50, etc. That is the percent off you're getting! Now, I've heard that Target has a specific schedule on when they mark down items. Since I don't have one locally, I haven't been able to prove this to be true, but maybe y'all know better about this! None the less, here is what I was told...
Monday; kid's clothing, baby items, electronics, and stationary items
Tuesday; woman's clothing, domestics, pets, food
Wednesday; Men's clothing, toys, health and beauty, lawn and garden
Thursday; housewares, shoes, lingerie, music, movies, books, décor, luggage, sporting goods
Friday; auto, cosmetics, jewelry, and hardware
4. Target's Dollar Spot!! Oh heck yesss!! Found when you first walk in, there is a section of items that are $1-3. I always find cute and interesting things there! They change it frequently, so it's always something new to check out! I love starting off my Target adventure there! It sounds silly, but it gets me in the shopping mood!!
5. The overall shopping experience is just so much better at Target, than at let's say, Wal-Mart..or KMart. It's cleaner, nicer items, better styles, nicer employees...I could go on and on! My son loves going to Target too, but is never really excited about a trip to Wal-Mart. He always loves to look at their toys, which they do have an amazing selection! They have this kitty piano that my son has been obsessed with since he was like 2 years old lol. Every time we're in Target, he has to play with it! During our last trip, Xander found a huge Ninja Turtle that he thought was cool. I also thought it was cute that they had a place to take selfies! Equipped with a hashtag sign and that white dog that has been a part of their logo for years. Of course, my son and I took advantage of the selfie spot, haha! Ahhh, Target just knows how to make their shoppers happy!
