There’s something in the air at Target—one moment, you’re running in for toothpaste and toilet paper, and the next, you’re headed to the checkout line with a cart full of who knows what.

We get it—Target seems to hold some mysterious power over all its shoppers. But even though you know about the Target trap, you keep coming back for more. The root of the problem lies in the fact that Target just slays the game—the store’s assortment is simply stellar.

One category that’s been gaining traction over the past few years is home decor, and we get giddy every time Target rolls out a new season of home goods. Here are a few quick, under-$50 buys we would be proud to put in our shopping cart.

This perfectly pink pillow makes for a lovely pop of color on your neutral sofa. It makes us very happy that this trending color has proven to have such serious staying power, and as a bonus, the price on this pillow makes it an easy impulse buy.

We were thrilled when Target started carrying art, and their print assortment is both stunning and extremely colorful. To add a pop of color to your walls, select some bolder prints. The best part? Target sells their art already framed!

A good-looking vanity mirror is hard to find. Most of the options out there are too ornate, or on the flip side, too simple. However, this one hits all the marks—it still has style, but isn’t too fussy. Scatter your lipsticks around this mirror to create the ultimate Instagram snap.

We love a good overdyed rug, and this one is no exception—the pattern is a twist on the traditional oriental motif, but the color brings it to a modern place.

There are two sizes that fall under the $50 mark—the 2’x3’ and the 4’x6’—and there are lots of potential ways to use the smallest size. You can place it by your front door or in front of your kitchen sink, or even use it as a bath mat. Even though all of these spaces will attract dirt and debris, when the price is this good, you won’t feel guilty about the damage.
