One of my most favorite times of the year is here! Even though I’m in Florida and everyone is still in T-shirts and shorts – I am longing for all things Fall!
Fall evokes for me memories of growing up in Missouri, jumping into piles of leaves, crisp morning air, fallen leaves stuck to the sidewalk on a rainy day, the smell of turkey roasting in the oven… home.
Every September 1st you’ll find me putting out the fall candles, decorative pumpkins, and autumn colored dish towels. I haven’t broken out the crockpot yet, but I will when the temps finally cool down.
As I prepare my house for Fall, just wanted to share these cute home decor items from Target… all are $20 or less (mostly less!), so you don’t break your budget. Enjoy!

Target’s ‘Smartly’ Move Could Change The Way You Shop!

I know it will for me!

I absolutely LOVE Target, but I have to admit, I go to the Dollar store for stuff like paper plates, ziplock bags, straws, etc.

But picture this…

You’re at Target, sipping your grande Starbucks Peppermint White Mocha, picking up cat food, cosmetics, maybe a cute new shirt and what do you see?

Smartly! …Target’s cool new line of lower-priced everyday products like paper bags, paper plates, soaps, household cleaners, toilet paper, etc.

No more dragging the kids to ‘just one more store’, to pick up those everyday items!

This new line of more than 70 items features items priced $.59 to $11.99, but most items are less than $2!

I’m not sure how the Smartly line differs from their Up&Up line, but it’s supposed to offer products that have great value, smart design and (importantly) work good! …so we shall see!

Target’s Genius Plan…and why we love it!

This post may contain affiliate and/or referral links to products or services, but only things that I truly love, have tried and recommend. See my disclosure policy here.

I absolutely LOVE Target and I think they have one of the best shopping experiences out there…

I have to say, Target is genius at creating a wonderful shopping experience!

First, I walk into the store and what do I see? Starbucks! I feel excited and relaxed at the same time!

Next, with a grande white peppermint mocha in hand, I see the Dollar Spot and find such cute fall decorations. Wouldn’t this festive $3 dollar dish towel go great in my kitchen?

Now I feel cozy, I’m fueled with java and ready to get that cat food I originally came in to get!

And I’m also prepped to do some serious saving with these Target hacks…

NUMBER ONE:  The Target App

This is a must-have when shopping in-store!  Why?

Target Lets You Scan Items for Cheaper Prices

Scan every item you put in your cart. Sometimes the item comes up cheaper when you purchase it online.  I find this especially true in the cosmetics area.  For example, I wanted to buy Covergirl Total Tease Mascara.  In the store, it was $7.89, but online it was only $4.59!

Scanning Tip: scan different types/styles/colors of an item – a different color/size might be cheaper online!

I’ve also found cheaper prices online in pet foods, essential oils, hairspray and lots of other items.

If you scan and it’s cheaper, then buy it on your phone and choose ‘in-store pickup’ during the check-out process.  Then you can finish your in-store shopping. Most times I get an email within 10-20 mins that my item is ready for pickup!  But even if it takes a little longer, most Targets these days have a Starbucks, so go enjoy a latte!

Cartwheel Discounts

When you scan items, the Target app ALSO lets you know if there’s a Cartwheel discount available.  This discount is anywhere from 5%-50% off or a coupon for a $ amount and is taken off when you scan your app barcode at check out.  These discounts can be on ANYTHING (including Starbucks Cafe items like food, lattes & frappes!), so BE SURE TO SCAN EVERYTHING!

Gift Cards

Add any gift cards that you have directly to the Target app and use them at checkout!  No more keeping track of loose gift cards!


Target Hacks Save Money

NUMBER TWO:  The Target Debit Card

Add more savings to your shopping experience by signing up for the Target Debit Card!

NOTE:  This is NOT a credit card — and that’s what I love about it!  It comes directly out of your checking account.  Perfect for people like me who are trying to stay debt free!

With the Target Debit Card, you get an additional 5% off your purchase!

Lastly… and most importantly… when you link your Target debit card and gift cards with the Target app, you can check out completely using only your phone!

So not only do you get 5% off, plus any Cartwheel savings, PLUS any gift cards, but you can check out quickly…and get to that Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino that’s calling your name.

BONUS!
