Today at Target: End of Summer Sales

I've mentioned already that I am obsessed with Target. Being young and on a budget it's typically my go to store for almost everything. Today I did a little mini haul, taking advantage of some really awesome deals in the mean time. I visit Target quite frequently so check back weekly for new posts on what I bought "Today at Target!" What I bought:Β 

First I picked up the cutest little thank you notes from the dollar section. I always keep a stash of thank yous in my desk, and I recommend to anyone and everyone to do the same! In today's modern world of technology we often lose the value of saying thank you, as in taking the time to write a short, hand written note in a card. Target always has adorable thank you cards with envelopes in packs of 8 right in the dollar section. The ones I grabbed today have a simple flower graphic pattern and read thank you below.

The next thing I picked up were a pair of white, gold-plated dangling earrings. I am SO obsessed with this type of earring, I probably have 10 similar pairs in different colors. If you don't already check out Target's clearance section in accessories, I strongly advice you to every time you go. These adorable earrings dropped from their original price of $7.99 to a clearance price of $5.59. I will happily keep that extra $2.40 in my wallet!

Shoes was my next destination, the Super Target near my house has a GINORMOUS shoes section and it was my lucky day because all summer shoes were 50% off! And on top of that Cartwheel had another deal giving me another 25% off all shoes purchased today, 75% off! If you are not yet a Cartwheel user, Target's coupon app, I am telling you now you should be. The app allows you to search up to 12 coupons and use them combined, you are able to scan items to search them and the best part is all the coupons you use are combined digitally into a single bar code to be scanned at the register. My beaded flip-flops originally sold for $29.99 with my combined discounts I purchased them for $6.73.

Finally I tried on a few items in the clothing department. I purchased a striped t-shirt dress along with a cute little beaded tank that can easily be transitioned from summer to fall. I found the tank in the clearance section dropped in price from $19.99 to $9.98. The t-shirt dress was full price at $19.99 but Target currently has a buy one get one half off sale on Mosimo dresses. So my shopping partner in crime (my mom) also purchased a dress so we could save 25% off each! I got the dress for a final price of $15.34.

So on today's mini Target haul I spent around $40 on all the adorable items you see below!

Note: Unfortunately not all Target clearance items are priced the same online as they are in some stores, but be sure to check out your local Target store to see if they still have these items in stock! Also the thank you note cards cannot be purchased online, but different variations of these cards can be found in most Target store's dollar sections. Although the prices fluctuate all other items I purchased today are listed below.
