Allow us to paint the scene for you: You’re working around the house and realize you’re running dangerously low on hair ties and laundry detergent. In short, a Target run is imminent. You snag your purse and head straight to the closest location on what you assume will be a 20- to 30-minute tops errand. But Target is essentially a retail blackhole, and you emerge hours later, having spent more time than you care to admit perusing every accent table and tray in Studio McGee's latest launch, all of the patio furniture (regardless of whether you own a patio) and stylish sandal-laden aisle, towing a slew of purchases you definitely did not need behind you. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
Since you’re inevitably going to wander every aisle to see what’s new, you might as well have an eye out for Target’s little-known must-haves, like storage-savvy cooking utensils, mini fridges for your skincare products (hello at-home cryotherapy!) and nifty baking gear. They’re all totally worth the impulse purchase. So, because we won’t allow buyer’s remorse to happen on our watch, we went ahead and rounded up seven, totally random but useful products at Target you should keep an eye out for during your next spontaneous shopping frenzy. You can thank us later.
