Dollar Bin Diaries: Valentine's Day Hits Target


Dollar Bins at Target always have the cutest stuff!

In case you're suffering from those post-holiday blues, cheer up, because Target (and many other retailers) have already made Christmas 2014 a distant memory and have moved on to Valentine's Day 2015! I couldn't help but smile when I spotted the pink, red and white goodies that filled the dollar aisle at my local Target. The chalkboard trend is still going strong on stickers, cupcake toothpick signs, pennant banners, chalkboard easels and more. Much like chevron, I'm a sucker for anything chalkboard #notoverityet. They've also got the cutest Valentine's Day cards for just $1 a piece, you can't go wrong. I picked up the card above - doesn't it look like Papyrus or Kate Spade?! Super chic. I also scored some pyramid shaped tacks to add some style to my corkboard (I'm convinced this single purchase will help me be more organized in the New Year! A girl can dream). Scroll down to see what other goodies I spotted in the dollar aisle - what's tempting you?

Also, diehard Target fans should follow me on Twitter and Instagram - we've been invited to a special press event tomorrow in NYC where Target will announce their next designer collab. We'll be the first to tell you who it is!

Hi - If you want to get more organized, Dianna, there is a book you might want to read.."The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" by Marie Kondo. The author is Japanese, her message is that you only keep that which you love (you have probably heard that before), like be kind to your socks as you store them plus another idea to store items vertically....interesting reading...just a suggestion...

I will look for the e-book, thanks for the rec! When I worked for Oprah.com and Oprah Radio I listened to a lot of Peter Walsh, who said something similar...when evaluating what to keep in your home and what to get rid of, ask yourself "Does this bring me joy?" if not, it goes!

Oh then he'll love it, lots of other items for kids that I didn't photograph!! My son loves the dollar aisle now, too, I always find little toys for him there.

We now have Target in Canada and although it isn't stocked quite as well as the US stores, there are lots of good things still to find. I think I will need a make a shopping trip there very soon.
