I Heart Target

by Cate on September 28, 2006

I have been busy getting the house ready to put on the market, and lately I have been concentrating my efforts on staging it. I dashed off to Target the other day to get a few baskets and a wreath for the door and, while there, I couldn’t help but pass through their housewares section; I mean, really, what if they had something new that I couldn’t live without? And, of course, they did. The Neighbor Husband likes to make fun of me and my frequent Target trips, but I can’t help it if they have so much cool stuff, can I?

Isn’t that platter cool? I love how it has the built-in handles. It’s ceramic and is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe. I checked Amazon, and they have a nice oval one that the store didn’t have as well. Yeah, got that one too. But, hello? Handles! So cool. When I’m ordering online, I usually get Target stuff through Amazon, since I can check out the new cookbooks while I’m there – bonus! And, of course, on a whim, I did a search for platters to see if they had any other must-haves and found this one that I’ve been coveting ever since I saw it on Jaay’s site a few weeks ago. Yeah, I’ve got it bad, real bad. And now you can too – happy shopping!

Until tomorrow…

A year ago today … something red.

I am a Target Junkie too.
I am actually hoping that when I complete my MBA to try and get a job at Target Corporate. I might as well support a company that I work for right?

I also LOVE Target (heading their on my lunch today! :) ) I can never resist hitting the housewares, and now I’ll have to look for that cool platter with the handles!

Target sells Riedel wine glasses–4 for $40, I think. I remember buying these from Williams-Sonoma for a number of weddings and paying over $50 for two glasses! I think the Target ones are made by machine as opposed to being hand-blown, but they still have the features that make Riedel distinct: the thin lip and wine-friendly shapes. A great buy for wine lovers.

ahhh, Target, just the place to cheer me up!
When you posted that picture, I thought you were going to talk about the new Pampered Chef platter. Aren’t you selling PC? or is it Tupperware. I can’t recall.

Anyway, have you been to the Slave to Target blog yet? check it out

Heather – absolutely! An an employee discount sure doesn’t hurt. ;)

Patsy – anything good?

Sarah – thanks for the tip on the wine glasses. I will definitely keep an eye out for them – I need new ones.

Crafty P – selling Tupperware and Avon, but not a lot of Pampered Chef (just a little here and there). I’ll check out the blog – thanks for the heads up.

You really are just an enabler! First you send me an Avon catalog this week and now you’re posting things for me to buy at Target. I get my first paycheck in 3 months tomorrow. Must restrain!

Robyn – LOL, but I’m showcasing inexpensive stuff – that’s a good thing, right? ;)

oh, you are making me miss target so much! i too could never enter target without having “a peep” at the kitchenware section. and, of course, i inevitably ended up splurging. luckily, i live thousands of miles away from a target now so no chance of giving in to temptations!
