The Target Dollar Spot: A Love/Hate Relationship

I have a a bit of a love/hate relationship with the Target dollar spot. I love it because where else can you find totally fabulous, cute little finds for only $1-$3?! But once I get home I may hate it just a little for adding more clutter to my home and although I didn't spend a fortune it was money that could have been saved or used for something more practical. I can never leave Target without throwing at least a few of these items in my cart. And yesterday was no exception. I just needed the following:

1 - Adorable Canvas Valentine Totes 
These are so cute and so practical right? I can use them to help me travel with things just in case the other 50 totes I own aren't available. Well, they do have adorable Valentine prints so I can even potentially use them as gift bags just in case I decided to throw out the closet full of gift bags I already own and reuse.

2 - Mint Polka Dot Accordion Files
Mint is my fave color of the moment and I have an obsession with stationery so it was inevitable that these were coming home with me. I am actually proud of the fact I didn't bring home the third size. The struggle was real. I figured these would really help me get my bills and receipts organized, you know the ones that don't already have a home in the 20 accordion files I already own from Target in many adorable prints.

3 - A Glitter Jar
Yes, a glitter jar. Who doesn't need one in their life?! I love mason jars and glitter so this was like the peanut butter and jelly of the trinket world. I can't even say what I am going to use this for but I had to have it. That's all I have to say about that.

I know I am not the only one obsessed with the dollar spot. What is your favorite dollar spot find??!


  1. I love the Target dollar spot, which always turns into the Target $10 Spot. How can you not find something cute each and every time you go??

  2. Oh yes... I come home with the most random things (that I already have at home). Every. Time.

  3. i love the masons jar its so cute and i can use it for anything like as a gift item or keeping my flowers.
