A Little Tar'-Jay Shopping

The other day I needed to run to the bank and with Target in the same shopping center, of course I had to go in and see what all was going on.  I did need some running socks, so that was a good reason.  Once inside I can't resist walking the whole store.  That's also good exercise, so I try to hit every aisle to see what all is new. haha

I found a couple of things that I thought would be fun.  I am still really trying to stick to my new years goals and budget, so I always look for the best bargain.

I've been adding some yellow all through the house - even the front porch, so when I saw these bright yellow towels, I had to have them.  Now they aren't super high quality, but they are mostly for show, and at $3.99 for the pair, why not.  I replaced the white hand towels with these beauties.  (you can see my complete bathroom makeover here and here.)

I think they're just the spice the bathroom needed.

As I found myself in the kitchen section, I always take a look at napkins and linens, they have some great buys sometimes.  I found some really fun kitchen towels and cloths.  I love, love, love flour sacks and these fun flower sack towels definitely had to come home with me.  You get 2 solid and 2 polka dot in a bundle for $3.99.  Now that's a bargain.  I also found some really great gray dish clothes to go with me.  You get 6 of them in a bundle for $3.99.

Fun trip to Target.  Have you found any treasures lately?

(I am not compensated in any way by Target, just fun finds that I wanted to pass along.)

  1. You found some great things! I love their flour sack dish towels too!

  2. Target (or Tar'Jay - which I often call it) is amazing. There isn't one is Santa Barbara and the nearest one is 45 minutes away. Still, sometimes there just HAS to be a trip. I'm on a vacay with my family, and we stopped at Target on our way down to the beach house. Great find: a vintage-inspired Mickey Mouse tee for $14. I wore it to Disneyland this past Wednesday. Similar shirts were for sale in the park for $35. Of course, I also stocked up on the beach vacay staples, such as heavy-duty hair conditioner and sunscreen. Gotta love Target.

  3. I find myself at Target weekly. i love it, too! and I am also buying dish towels constantly because I don't like the ones that look dirty and worn out. best!

  4. Love those yellow towels with the black and you are right they really "spice" up your bathroom décor. The kitchen towels are fantastic as well. Great shopping!

  5. I think adding yellow to your spaces gives it a real zing! I love Target, but I'm not walking very well right now and having a lot of pain, so Target will have to wait until this bout is over. I love how things look, Marty! You have a wonderful eye!

  6. I love the added colors Marty! I fell in love the polka dot towels and bought them to match the grey and white polka dot ceramic measuring cups that a friend brought me on Easter.

  7. I'm a little jealous! The closest Target to me is about 35 miles away so I rarely go - but they always have such lovely stuff for the home and the garden! Those yellow towels really look perfect with that pretty shower curtain - very nice buys!

  8. Wow that yellow is perfect! I like the new kitchen towels too- love polka dots! I just ordered some striped towels I'm hoping will liven up my bathroom. I enjoy browsing about at Tar'-Jay too!

  9. TARGET IS "BAD" for me, I always find something there, too many actually to share! LOL! I recently stashed up on my Easter stuff for next year!

  10. Great picks, Marty! I'm a sucker for bargain shopping as well. It lets me buy nice things guilt-free lol. You can find me at Target when I'm not busy with my work. It's my all-time favorite go-to place. :)
