I got the cutest Nick and Nora pajamas there as well as an adorable houndstooth Isaac Mizrahi suit. The costume jewelry is great, the shoes are cute, they have Playtex Thank Goodness it Fits bras (which I have yet to buy) and you can always get those big ol' 24 packs of toilet paper. Very useful.

You can get cute shoes sometimes for great prices. When I needed some Crocs for work I got a pair of knock-offs at Target for like $5

Also I think they always have really cute earrings!

I love Target. They have cute stuff for your house too. When I went to college I got all my dorm stuff at Target.

I enjoy shopping at Target and have bought many items over the years.

My favorite departments are the bath and bedding departments. They have cute items of good quality for price paid. I also like to buy cookware and small appliances there.

I used to periodically buy clothing too but I think their selections in the women's section have really gone to h*ll and the clothing looks like cheap crap.

I used to buy clothing from there, but have noticed over the years the tops are thinner & a lot of their styles seem to be geared toward either casual teens or business women of small & thin stature. I'm not a plus size, but I'm also not willing to wear slim fit & practically sheer clothing that shows all the lumps & bumps.

I found some really cute, unique picture frames there. I'm picky about those- I don't like boring wooden ones, or plain silver ones, or the kind that say stuff on them.

Target is so hot! I have a fabulous red purse that I always get TONS of compliments on. I always say "Target, girl!" And then her eyes will get big, and she'll say "whhhhhhhhaaaaa?" I just bought cute jeans and a cute top from outta there. That's the thing. They have EVERYTHING. Bedding, clothes, shoes, cute baby clothes, toys, food, hair products, electronics.......

I was just telling my sister that even if I were a billionaire I would still shop there....I'd just do it WAY more often.

I love Target for basic layering t-shirts. They are $7 so you really canít beat the price, even if they only last a season or two.

I was telling my son yesterday that I wish our Super Target was bigger. I don't know what the floor size is, but when I shopped in their grocery section it was smaller than that of Wal-Mart. The same applied to their electronics, personal care & seasonal departments, & pretty much the same applies to their clothing section.

Though it is still bigger than the one we used in Arkansas.

Target has the best stuff for a reasonable amount of money.

They have Sonia Kashuk Brushes

I just bought a pair of Rainboots for $20

They have really nice photo albums, reasonably priced decorations like vases etc...

Check out these Christmas Dishes

Eyupp Liz, that's exactly what I mean. It irks me too as I still have some printed thermal tops from a few years ago that still fit and look good. I don't think I even saw thermal tops this year.

OMG, when I was there last (yesterday?) I looked at a short sleeve T that had an XL tag. I wear a L to an XL because of my shoulders. The shirt was the size of a S or XS, but because of its Lycra, it would stretch. I'm sorry, but there's no way in hell anyone's going to get me to even try something like that on!

I don't shop at Target much, but do like that its clean, bright and well stocked. Service is usually pretty good at check out too. I like their housewares, bedding and active wear.

It depends on which T shirts you get. The Cherokee Ts are cut fairly normally (I wear XS). But the Mossimo Ts are cut for juniors, and I wear M when I get those. The Lycra ones (ProSpirit??) also run small. Try the Cherokee ones.
