Dollar Bin Diaries: End of January Highlights At Target

Dollar bin goodies at Target

I can't resist checking out the seasonal dollar bins near the entrance of Target on each visit, so it's a wonder that I've never dedicated a feature to those $1.00 treasures here on the blog - hence this new feature I'm calling "Dollar Bin Diaries"! Today I spotted a ton of fun Valentine's Day goodies, which have been on the shelves for a few weeks now, but of course the holiday is just around the corner so it's worth a look. I am also loving all the cute thank you cards and other papergoods in colors like paper-bag brown, mint, pink and off-white, so cute! I purchased some silver alphabet letters for a DIY art project I have in mind (we'll see if I actually get around to making it!), some Valentine's Day cards, and some pretty scrapbooking paper. If you're new to the dollar bins, just be aware that not everything is $1 - some items are $3 (like the adorable stamp sets shown above).

More photos after the jump - are you a dollar bin addict like me?!
