California Roots wines

Target’s California Roots brand wines (two reds, three whites and one rosé) would make sommeliers cringe, but for $5 a bottle they’re affordable wine-based cocktail mixers for social gatherings and are acceptable for cooking. They aren’t available in all states.

Cat & Jack kids’ t-shirts

Children grow out of their clothes in about six months, so it doesn’t make much sense to spend a lot as they’re sprouting. Target’s Cat & Jack kid’s T-shirts generally cost about $6 apiece.

Favorite Day trail mix

Target’s Favorite Day line of trial and snack mixes are competitively priced at about $8 for a 12-ounce bag. While you’re there, check to see if there’s a sale on 32-ounce containers of nuts and trail mixes from Good & Gather brand (another Target exclusive).
