Diva on a Dollar’s Tips for Shopping at Target
By Kailei Richardson, The “Diva on a Dollar“
Tar-jay, oh how I love thee!
Like many of you, I frequent Target for everything from my everyday needs to electronics to fun accessories. This huge superstore is full of great deals — a treasure hunter’s paradise! I’m here to share with you my tips for finding the hidden gems.
1) Aisle Endcaps – The “endcap” (the area at the end of a store aisle) is amongst the most popular display areas in a store. I have found that Target often puts special packages and deals in their endcaps. Recently, I noticed regular packages of Biore strips where they normally were, but there were also combo packages with free moisturizers for the same price at the end of another aisle.
2) Special Sections – Many Targets have special aisles dedicated to everything from bulk items to promotional packages. For instance, I use Olay Shea Butter body wash. Normally the 23.9 oz bottle is $6-$9. However, I found a special package containing both a 23.9 oz bottle and a smaller 10 oz bottle for just $5.99! These aisles are sometimes difficult to find, so ask someone who works there to be sure.
3) $1 Spot – This is the area usually located near the entrance that contains bins of lots of random things priced for only $1. Moms can take the most advantage of the deals here as they normally have plenty of school supplies and toys (great for birthday party favors!), but I have also found other knickknacks for around the house.
4) Target.com – I do enjoy the convenience of getting items from the store. However, Target has many great items that are exclusively found online. Check out target.com from time to time to check out what’s new!
