I recently ventured out to Target one evening 𝙗𝙮 𝙢𝙮𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛 which rarely happens. It also means that one can do a lot of damage when let loose in there without a timeline, without kids and without a list!
Regardless, I found some affordable essentials that were worth sharing because sharing is caring, right?!? Let's dive right in...
Opalhouse - Painted Floral Doormat
I love a pretty door mat but hate to spend money on them since its sole purpose is to get stepped on. But for $13.00, this one is worth the splurge and will brighten up your doorstep without breaking the bank!
Igloo Latitude 16 Qt. Rolling Cooler in Mint
No, I don't own a Yeti and yes, I know they are the mac daddy of keeping your beverages cooler longer but for knocking around the pool with water bottles and juice boxes, you can't beat this Igloo rolling cooler for $35. It's gracious plenty big enough for packing snacks and lunches for the pool, a day at the beach or a kid's sports game. It has an adjustable handle for tall or tiny people. My kids know that no one walks in or out of the pool empty handed so they generally offer to roll the cooler while I'm lugging the heavy pool bags and towels! It also comes in other colors like watermelon and bright yellow!Carissa Woven Slide Sandals by A New Day
You've likely seen the trend - the chunky braided sandals and slides made popular by the brand Dolce Vita. Well, Target outdid themselves with this amazing dupe that comes in quite a variety of colors. I chose the simple nude shade because it's guaranteed to go with everything and for $25, I'll buy in to the trend for the season. Psst - they are also super comfortable! I sized up just by a half because it seemed to fit better that way in both length and width.
I've loved these beach towels for my kids for years! Why? I'm glad you asked! Besides the fact that they come in cute kid designs, they are super thin which means they dry a whole lot faster than thicker towels. They shrink a tad in the wash but are still plenty big enough to wrap around the kiddos when it's time to dry off. I save the sturdier, thicker towels for Phillip and myself and use these light-weight, thin beach towels for the kids because let's be honest - they use the actual towel for less than a minute so why waste the good ones on them?!? Plus, being that they are thiner, they are much easier to pack for the beach and pool, without weighing you down!
