What not to buy at Target

Starting off her list of things you can only buy at Target is any item that’s part of a brand collaboration. Lisa says that Target works hard to pair up with top brands and bring affordable options to the masses.

From clothing to furniture and home goods, brand collabs can be found throughout Target stores and online. And all of these items look amazing.

Other best things to buy at Target options include cane desks, outdoor dining tables with mix-match chairs, and wood patterned or Venetian shutter room dividers. Lisa says to think creatively when you pick out new items and to never settle for sets because they look out of date.

    I don't shop anywhere that lets dudes in the ladies' restroom -- and since the nearest Target is over 100 miles away, it is easy not to shop there!
