Target. The Money-Saver’s Nemesis

1) Organization tools that give even the messiest person hope for an orderly life.

Yesterday, I fell in love with a lamp, bedside table, a few pieces of wall art and a myriad of organizational bins. Pat me on the back. I was strong and did not buy a single item I did not need. However, I’m still imagining how much better my home would look if I had purchased them! Anyone else feel this way?
