If you’re looking for a good time (and low-priced finds) at Target, grab your Starbucks and a shopping cart. It’s time to stroll through the Target Dollar Spot — aka Bullseye’s Playground, at your local Target store.

The Dollar Spot is where I find all sorts of things I really, really want — but don’t necessarily need — for $5 or less. It’s basically the Target dollar section, and it’s usually located at the front of the store as soon as you walk in.

No, you can’t order Dollar Spot items for Target pickup or delivery. You can’t even shop for these items online. That’s why it’s worth making it an experience: a fun, guiltless treasure hunt at the Target store for affordable items you’ll fall in love with. Plus, you’ll save an extra 5% when you pay with your Target RedCard.

So what’s new in the Target Dollar Spot lately? I’ve rounded up all my favorite finds for summer 2024 right here.

You can’t shop The Target Dollar Spot (Bullseye’s Playground) online.

If you try searching Target.com for “dollar spot” or “bullseye playground,” you’ll either get no results or see a bunch of items with a wide range of prices — and not from The Dollar Spot.

The Dollar Spot gets restocked daily and seasonally, so check back often.

Target restocks the Dollar Spot daily with backstock, but new items get replenished multiple times throughout the year, usually when the seasons change. Basically, you can count on finding holiday decor, back-to-school notecards, wedding items, and more stuff you never knew you needed year-round.

Score electronics, home decor, coffee mugs, candles, faux plants, textiles, party supplies, and more. The Dollar Spot has it all.

Toys & Activities

If you need party favors, games, bubbles, or just things to waste your money on, you’ll find them in the Dollar Spot. This is where I like to find little trinkets for the prize box at my kids’ school, too.

Educational & Learning Items

Whether you’re a teacher or a parent trying to keep the kids organized and educated at home, the Dollar Spot has tons of items, from magnetic numbers and letters, activity books, and dry-erase pockets, to bulletin board decor and storage bins. They come in lots of eye-catching colors that your students will love. And they’re cheap!

Home Decor

Don’t be surprised if you walk through my house and notice that half of it is from the Dollar Spot. I like the dollar section for themed candles, dish towels, pillows, reversible signs, and fake greenery.

The Dollar Spot gets refreshed with new items heading into a new season or holiday. So, what happens to the old items? Those $1, $3, and $5 finds in the Dollar Spot get marked down for clearance.

Target clearance markdowns will start between 30% – 50% and can reach up to 70% off (if items last that long).
