Picture this: You’re running out of some essentials at home, you make a shopping list (and promise yourself to stick to only those few items,) get in your car, and drive yourself to Target – a normal, non-tempting, store. 

Who are you kidding. TARGET IS THE BEST PLACE ON EARTH! And also maybe a trap… for your wallet. No, you didn’t stick to just the items on your list, but you got that and the entire candy, makeup, home-decor, and god-knows-what isles. Two hours and possibly a triple digit receipt later, you’re cringing at the bill but secretly extremely happy with all the new stuff you didn’t know you needed. Ugh, consumerism! ;)

Ok ok, jokes aside, shopping at Target can be really tempting, and probably not the best place to practice self-control. BUT, we’ve got a few favorites to add to your shopping list… HEY, and you don’t even need to get in your car. Simply go on to enjoy the fun.


1. Lunette Menstrual Cup

THAT’S RIGHT FOLKS! The Lunette cups, cleanser, and cup wipes are all up and running on! If you’re still deciding on whether or not to make the switch to a menstrual cup but just need that extra kick, trust your favorite store *Target* and browse Lunette! You won’t be disappointed :)

2. Reusable Water Bottles
A great way to stop yourself from using single-use plastic water bottles is to get your own reusable one! You best believe the Target website has the best brands. You can pick between Klean Kanteen, S’ip by S’well, Contigo, CamelBak, Nalgene, and Gatorade! Life’s about having options, am I right?

3. Bed Sheets

Room Essentials™️ – enough said.

4. A Round Mirror For Your New, Super Chic, Adult Room

Congrats on getting your own apartment, remodeling your room, or just needing a new mirror! As you know, has endless options and all at the touch of your fingertips. So how do you choose something as simple as a mirror? Check out this Round Decorative Wall Mirror Brass. It’s as fancy as it sounds.

5. Method Hand Soap

~Currently thanking the Target-based-gods for this one~. Did you ever think you could love a soap bottle so much? Whether you like foam or gel, Method offers both, and has three pages to choose from!

We know what you're thinking – “woah, c’mon it’s just soap.”

It’s not just soap, it’s a planet-friendly soap!

6. Cruelty-Free Makeup Brushes

We care about sustainability, which means we’re willing to go the extra mile when it comes to researching certain brands and the products we use. Which is why we love that offers EcoTools! This brand produces makeup brushes that are vegan and made with recycled materials and bamboo! That’s a yes in our book.

7. Organic Cotton Clothes

Yes, buying clothes online can be somewhat of a risk (what if it's not the right fit?), but Target has a great selection of clothes that are sustainably made. So, if you do decide to shop for clothes on, check out PACT Organic’s clothing line, which are ethically made, and have the highest quality ingredients with no toxic dyes or pesticides!

8. Coffee & Tea Mugs

Are you a “OK. But first, coffee” kind of person? Then you must know that a cute mug goes a long way (for that insta pic, duh). We’re joking, but if you didn’t find the right mug at the physical Target store, you have 28 pages worth on Mug-mamia!
