Shade & Shore bikinis
Beach season is over for most of the country, but Target offers an ample selection of its Shade & Shore brand bikinis year-round. Most of them are priced under $30 for budget-conscious beachgoers.
Threshold bath towels
Target’s expansive and exclusive Threshold brand offers bath, hand, and kitchen towels priced to compete against homeware retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond. A standard Threshold bath towel cost as little as $8.
Travel size makeup, toothpaste, sunscreen, deodorant, etc.
If you’re planning a trip, check Target’s prices on travel-size sundries. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at some of the prices and the selection, especially compared to what you’ll find at chain pharmacies.
Target has an enormous selection of toys, categorized on its website into four age groups from 2 to 11+ years. It’s particularly good on hard-to-find items, even if prices are sometimes slightly higher that elsewhere.
up & up heavy-duty paper plates
Target revamped its in-house brand to up & up in 2009, replacing the company’s bull’s eye trademark with a colorful arrow to distinguish its large selection of affordable goods like sunscreen, diapers and tissues. Ten-inch up & up paper plates currently cost $5.89 for a 54-count package.
