Haul - Target Dollar Spot / New Fall Items!

I've been seeing new things pop in Dollar Spot haul videos the past few days so I stopped by my Target this morning after grocery shopping.  I was too early.  There were a lot of cleared out bins waiting to be restocked, and the carts full of boxes were there waiting to be unloaded, but no one was working on that yet.  They did have quite a few new things out though!  I saw several new designs in the note pads and note cards.  There were new wire baskets and new colors in those plastic accordian folders.  There were some really cool looking slippers and socks, heavy infinity scarves and the thin infinity scarves, as well as lightweight gloves.  A lot of new colors and designs on the pens and pencils.

I was good and resisted so many things, but there were some I just couldn't let go.

I got a small pillow from the Dollar Spot last year, a black and orange chevron design, and thought it looked so cute in our recliner that I knew I wanted more this year.  This silly pumpkin one is larger than the one last year.  This is about 10x10 inches.  It's a felt type material.  They also had a black one with two white ghosts on it, a candy corn striped one that said Trick Or Treat on it, and a brown burlap one with small black dots on it.  There might have been a witch one, I can't remember for sure.
(This was $3.00)

There were a few color/design options on these pumpkins.  I liked this one best.  There was also a black chevron one, and I can't remember the others.  This is hard styrofoam with heavy fabric over it, and the body is about four inches tall, five inches wide.
(This was $3.00)

I'd seen these leaf banners in a haul video and fell in love.  I was so excited to actually find some at my store!  I grabbed two.  They are light wood, and glittery, and strung on brown twine.  These are great for me because I've been wanting more non-pumpkin decorations for my 'early fall' September decorating.  They also have acorn banners that were really cute but not glittery like these leaves.  There were some burlap banners, much more plain, with some orange on alternating pieces.  There was also one with large, fall colored felt letters that spelled out Thankful.  These leaves are definitely my favorite though.
(These were $3.00)

Found many rolls of this new washi tape.  It looks slightly orange, with white dots, but the label says it's salmon.  Whatever.  I grabbed it automatically because the Dollar Spot washis can be hard to find.
(This was $1.00)

Found one pack of this baker's twine, buried under notepads and things.  This particular set has been out for a while, part of the summer line, but I grabbed it because of the Halloween-ish colors.
(This was $1.00)

Yes, I'm completely mental.  I bought another freakin' mini planner set.  They had two new designs, and while neither really wowed me, there is something charming about this tan and black one.  My intention is to actually try (AGAIN!) to use this for myself but who knows, maybe it'll end up in another giveaway.
(This was $3.00)

Of course I had to get the pages to go with it.  I made sure to grab two packs of the calendar packs this time.  Also got a pack with just lined paper and some pocket folders.
(These packs were $3.00 each)
***UPDATE***
I'm returning the planner kit.  After thinking about it, and watching a video about this, I wouldn't be able to set it up like I'd planned so I decided to not even open these, and return them instead.  LOL - Someday I'll just give up the planner idea.

I also saw the black Halloween trees, some candles (but not the mercury glass ones), some of those wire ball lights in Halloween colors, and a few other Halloween things.  The kitchen towels I'd seen a week or two ago were gone.  I'm really curious what was in all those boxes waiting to be unpacked.  I might have to go back in a day or two just to see.  Hehe!

Have you found any new things at your Target Dollar Spot yet?
Anything in particular you're hoping to find?

    1. LOL - Well in that case, I'll be sure to post again about the other things I get if I do sneak back there this weekend!

      Let me know what you end up getting when your car magically takes you there.

    1. If you get the leaves, be warned....the glitter gets everywhere. I think I heard somewhere that people spray hairspray on glittered things to set it?

      I want to open the planner stuff and put it all together but I'm afraid I'll change my mind and not want to use it. I'm afraid hubby will laugh at me. LOL! But he's watching the new Mad Max movie so he probably won't even notice what I'm puttering around with.
