The gift wrap at Target can have fun, whimsical prints, we get it, but how much do you want to pay for something that will soon be torn apart? You’ll notice that many Targets position their gift wrap section near the bargain section, but this doesn’t mean you’re getting a discount on that fabulous-looking wrapping paper.
There are definitely better options out there, so check out places like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, or even the local dollar store because they will serve your wallet well.
Snatch: Organic Products
Shopping for reasonably priced organic products can be a hassle. You want to choose the healthiest option without hurting your bank account. Target has done well in marketing and managing its organic food section. They have given themselves an edge with competing grocery and health food stores by offering reasonably priced, organic health products.
Their brands “Simply Balanced” and “Simply Organic” have been a hit with customers and have been found to be (in comparison to other brands) less expensive and more flavorful.
Spices are a kitchen essential and you usually need more of them than you think you will. The spice aisle at Target can help you out. The store has a generous selection of spices (even some exotic blends) at much better prices than competitors.
Don’t believe it? Well, customers have praised the Target label of spices for not only their low price but also for the flavor and quality. So whether it’s black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, or even saffron, you can probably find it for cheaper at Target.
Skip: Picture Frames
This is an item in life that you rarely consider the cost of until it actually comes time to purchase one. Depending on what you are looking to frame and the size of it, it can take a chunk out of your wallet, especially if you have it professionally framed.
This is why many people resort to stores like Target, looking for a deal, but you won’t find many for picture frames. Frames at Target are another average to the overpriced item and you can generally find a better deal at overstock stores (think TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Home Goods) or online.
Snatch: Face Wipes
Face wipes are a quick way to wipe off the dirt and grime of the day and keep your face feeling fresh. But these disposable essentials are often pricey and, because of their single-use nature, you can easily go through a pack of them.
But this is where Target’s brand Smartly comes to the rescue. In one pack you get 30 sheets at a cheaper price than name brand face wipes, in fact, you’ll get the whole package for under a dollar.
