i {heart} target

Yes, that's right...I'm in love with Target. Target clearance to be exact. I have found some amazing deals these last few weeks while making some frequent visits to Target (it's literally 3 minutes away). From toys to clothes to shoes to kitchenware, and whatever else you can think of! I'm talking 50-75% off, people! Like I said. Amazing.

Mikayla has been sleeping in a big girl bed since January 1st of this year and since then I've been waiting for the right comforter to jump out at me. I really wanted it to be something to match the purple colors of her room, which are a little hard to find since they aren't the typical lavendar colors. I figured something would come around one of these days and in the meantime, I would be content with just having sheets and blankets to cover her.

Well, "one of these days" happened! That moment where it was just meant to be. I was in Target yesterday, and I had been browsing and taking my time digging through all of the clearance stuff in various places in the store (I was without kids, by the way) and as I was walking down one of the main aisles, I looked over and saw this beautiful purple quilt, and I said to myself. That looks just like the color of paint in Mikayla's room. And, then I saw the red sticker (we all know what that means!), and then I saw what the red sticker said.

What? Can't quite see the price?


Well, how about this?


Yes, you are reading this right. It took me a few blinks to find out if I was seeing it right. It was 50% off!! I got this beautiful twin quilt for only $25. I could not have found anything that I would have liked better, and then I got a steal of a price on top of it. Unbelievable! Can you tell I am so giddy about this find? It honestly just blows me away, it was that exciting. To make it even better, the twin size was the only one on clearance. The queen/full and king were regular size. What are the odds?? I really wanted to buy a matching pillow sham, but it was $15 regular price and I just couldn't do it.

I'm a big fan of simple, and then I try to spruce it up with other things, so I'm going to see if I can have my mom make some small accent pillows. Last summer, I bought some brand new pillow forms for $.50 each at a garage sale. Now, I just need to head to the fabric store to find some perfect fabric.


The only thing that could have been better about this deal is if it was 75% off.

OK, now I'm pushing my luck.

What a steal! I can't believe how much it matches her walls too...

This so makes me want to go and wander Target (with a caramel macchiato) sigh...

I love good deals! Target is a wonderful place. And to go without kids must have been so nice!

I LOVE Target clearance too...their stuff is usually way too expensive, but their clearance prices are GREAT. I usually find my best deals in the toy department.

I totally love Target too. That is where I found the Smart Cycle I so wanted to get for Rebecca for only $50. Gotta love their clearances.

Target is so awesome right now! I went yesterday and found the 75% off toy clearance. It was hard to be restrained. I got that Rose Petal or Cherry Blossom or whatever Market playhouse for $15!

Score! Target is my happy place.

That looks really nice. My MIL is the queen of Target clearance. We get a package from her about once a month with all the goodies she found.
