Target Deals and Steals

*This is not a sponsored post... Just passing along some great finds!

I have to admit, I may not buy everything at Target (because hello, money!?) but, I probably would come close if I could. Target has long been my go-to store & I am a true bargainista through & through. Combine the two together & you have the idea behind today's blog post. And who knows, maybe there will be more in the future. 

First up are my recent Dollar Spot finds. Confession: I avoided the Dollar Spot like the plague when it was first introduced. Now, I don't ever pass it up!  First, I found this adorable recipe book for $5. I have a basket full of recipes on different types of papers & there is no organization to it. I plan to transfer all of my recipes into the book & declutter the recipe basket!

Different sections for different types of recipes

Then I found these adorable burlap pumpkins this last weekend for $3 each. I just could not pass them up!  They will go perfect all the way through the Fall season.

Same day, another isle.... I picked up these sweet treats for Jack.  I haven't given them to him yet because to be honest, he was being a complete toot that day.  So, I've decided to hold onto them & give them to him on October 1st to kick off the month of Halloween!  With each treat being $1 each, this makes for a pretty inexpensive "treat bag".

Staying with the Halloween theme... I've seen these Grab & Go packs before but, Jack has been too young for them.  Each pack comes with a mini coloring book, crayons & stickers.  He really loves coloring and these will be perfect for our long trips in the car. And at $1 each I couldn't help but to pick up a few!

Other bargains to note...

Are you a Target Cartwheel user?  If not, you should be!

I picked up these adorable Cat & Jack boots for Jack the other day which were not on sale but, they were 25% off with the app.  Score!

Other items that I often find on the Cartwheel app are well... all kinds of baby products such as Boudreaux's baby products, the Up & Up Diaper Pail liners (SO much less than the name brands!), diapers & so much more!  I also find things like nail polishes, clothing items, and all sorts of grocery store items!

So, my last & probably biggest savings recently was when we purchased our second convertible car seat so that Matt & I could each have one in our vehicle.  No more swapping it out when we want to take the vehicle the seat isn't in!

The car seat is originally $379.99 at Target but, it was & CURRENTLY STILL IS on sale for $304!  Target is also running an additional sale on select Britax items (this is one of them) + you get free shipping for spending more than $25.  If you have a Red Card (which I do) you can save an additional 5% on your purchase.  With the combination of the sale, additional savings, free shipping & Red Card savings, our total came in at $293.19!  That's at least a $100 savings on this awesome car seat!

I'm still on a high from this savings so, take advantage while you still can!

Whew!  That's my round-up of recent Target bargains!

What have you saved on at Target lately?

Labor Day Weekend 2016

Ahh... 3 day weekends!  Extra long but, somehow go by just as fast as a 2 day weekend. Per usual we managed to cram as many activities into the weekend as possible!

On Friday after work my girlfriend Erin & I went to the Just Between Friends kids consignment sale. I've had great success at this sale before & did so again this time around!  Jack should be set for Fall/Winter almost but, let's be honest, I'm not done shopping for him. Ha!

Saturday morning we were up bright & early & on the road West to Graham. We went to Graham to visit Matt's parents, Matt to help his Dad & brother on house projects at his parents house & to visit friends & dove hunt.  Matt & his friend didn't have much luck hunting but, got to do some catching up. It's almost a sin to not hunt opening weekend of dove season so, I'm glad he got to get away for a bit.  Until Jack was acting like a crazy person after a short nap & then got eaten up with fire ants all over his legs   Poor guy... He has been a trooper about them ever since though.

Just before the ants attacked

On Monday I went out shopping for a few more work clothes & hit up a great deal at Target on shoes - Cartwheel had an extra 25% off all shoes!  Woo hoo!

Later that afternoon we went to visit friends who just recently had a sweet baby girl!  Jack wanted nothing to do with Kyler all evening & pretty much refused a picture with her. He will one day learn, girls aren't so bad! ;)

Whew!  Makes me tired just recapping our weekend!  But, as I'm soaking up every moment with my little family these days, I wouldn't trade any of the business that is this season of life!
