Because why the fork not!

Anyway, Target has a lot of great vegan and cruelty-free options for your person and I noticed a lot of them are on clearance right now. At my store I spotted Pacifica, Yes To, ELF, Physician's Formula (including the eyeliner trios which are beeswax free, three eyeliners for $5!), Avalon Organics, 7th Generation...lots of stuff at varying discounts. If your store filled the area where the Christmas stuff is with a bunch of Larabars and Method products, the Yes To two-packs that were there are now 50% off. The Blueberries one isn't vegan because the eye cream has beeswax, but the grapefruit and tomatoes ones are cool, and they were already discounted at $10 for two so $5 is a really good deal. And I had a coupon for $5 off of $10 so I got two for $2.50! Score.

Those of you with full groceries can talk about all of your Gardein options, I guess.

The only contribution I currently have is excitement for a Target thread! I spend WAY too much money there.

A Target store opened kind of near me (two buses away but it's not a bad trek--both short rides on busy bus routes) but anyway, I haven't made my way over there yet. I don't have cash to fritter at the mo' but as soon as I do, one of my first trips will be there. I'm curious about it.

Target finally got on board and now has high waisted jeans (that are not of the 'mom' variety), which I am very excited about. So, uh, not vegan or food related, but Target related, nonetheless!

Sometimes I make a trip to Target specifically for those little stuffed gardein "turkey" thingies. I've never seen them anywhere else.

I never actually ONLY buy those though. I pretty much can't go in that store without spending at least $50.

They had some pretty decent food clearance tonight. The big cans of Libby's pumpkin were $1.44, which is good. I only bought one, but I'm thinking I might go back tomorrow. I have a few dollars left on a gift card.

It's not, the only drugstore/store brand I know of that's confirmed CF is CVS.

Same here! Last time I bought St. Ives face wash, I bought two, because the one I like was hard to find. Not sure what I'm going to do when the second one runs out. I'm about halfway through it.

Jason makes a st. Ives style face scrub now, even a acne medicated version. It's actually awesome.

I got some vegenaise (blue jar) for $2.50 on clear-out the other day at Target. Its still like two months away from expiration but if it is a slow seller, and in our market I could see that it would probably be, they may have considered that close-dated enough to clear it out. I was happy, don't know about other places but he re that small jar is like usually at least $5. For the stuff. Should have bought two jars!

I buy my workout pants at Target. They offer short lengths which are hard to find and my legs are definitely short. I also like their sports bras for lighter activities. If you aren't running/high impact aerobics, they work fine.

I used to be a huge clearance-find target shopper when we lived in the US- this year I found that things just didn't get the kind of markdowns they used to do, and no matter how long I waited, they didn't go lower. Or maybe it's just that more people are picking through the clearance stuff and get the good stuff before I do.
That said, I also buy all my workout gear at Target, and their sports bras (light and heavyweight).

I don't know if you meant the yoga pants, but there's a good deal you can work out on those:

Oh interesting.. Their workout clothes are Champion brand, I'm guessing the Mossimo yoga pants are in the regular clothes section. I'll have to do a little investigating.

My current one doesn't (but I'm SO glad for their Gardein selection!). But man, oh, man, do I miss the Target in Sarasota. It's the biggest one I've ever been in, and there were so many veg-friendly items in the grocery section! Every department was like a regular Target but more fabulous. And while it was always pretty packed, there were about a million registers and I always got out in a timely manner. <sigh>

I'm thrilled with the new Super Target in my town. It's great to have so many vegan items accessible a ten minute drive away. Food stuff I buy includes:

Amy's - best selection and prices anywhere, and I'm now hooked on those tofu scramble breakfast wraps
Gardein
Sweet Earth brand - I hadn't heard of this before, but there are several vegan burritos varieties (w/seitan)
canned lentils
pantry staples and ethnic basics, like organic tamari
GoPicnic boxes - don't love, but convenient for plane travel

Other: good selection of 7th Generation and Mrs. Meyers, vegan shoes and handbags, and socks. I love those Champion yoga pants. They are kind of pricey for Target, but they are really comfy and come in the perfect short length for me. I live in them at home.

Yeah, they are.. I have a pair that I wear for the elliptical that will be falling off of me if I lose more than five pounds, so I wanted to get the next size down and...there were none left. Whomp whomp.
