Target is set to debut 12-plus exclusive new brands

As if you didn't already love shopping at Target, you're about to love it even more.

The retailer recently announced that it'll be launching more than 12 (this is not a drill!) exclusive new brands. While "Tarjay" is already home to a ton of brands we know and love, the company saw an opportunity to add to its "Only-at-Target" portfolio.

"When we took a close look at our existing assortment ... we saw a disconnect," Executive Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer Mark Tritton explained. "We knew we'd need to refresh our offerings—and define new ones—so our guests continue to love what they're discovering at Target and want to keep coming back, again and again."

Among the 12-plus new brands we have to look forward to are four at which Target has already given a sneak peek. They're called A New Day ("a versatile, mix-and-match women's brand"), Goodfellow & Co. ("modern-meets-classic line of men's clothing"), JoyLab ("fitness-meets-fashion-and-function") and Project 62 ("a modern home brand thoughtfully designed for everyday life"). Let's just say, we're already obsessing.

Obsess with us, why don't you? Take a sneak peek below:

Consider that trench coat, forest green handbag, cropped workout ensemble and petite set of drawers already added to our cart. Yup, we can already see the number in our bank accounts dwindling.

The good news is this, though: We have some time to save up (and contain our excitement). All four brands will be hitting shelves in September, aside from Joy Lab, which will make its debut in October.

Plus, let's face it, we're talking about Target here, so the price tags are bound to be reasonable.

Ways to save money at Target

Look at what number price of an item ends in
It may seem overly attentive, but it's worth it. If the price of an item ends in $0.06 or $0.08, the item will be marked down again at some point in the future. If the price ends in $0.04, the item is marked for final clearance and the price will not change again.

Trade in electronics for gift cards
If you bring your old electronics to the electronics department, they'll quote you on how much your stuff is worth and compensate you in Target gift cards to spend around the store.

Be aware of the weekly markdown schedule
Different departments in Target mark down items depending on the day of the week:
Monday: Electronics, accessories, kids' clothing, books, baby, and stationery
Tuesday: Domestics, women's clothing, pets, and market 
Wednesday: Men's clothing, health and beauty, lawn and garden

Thursday: Housewares, lingerie, shoes, toys, sporting goods, decor, and luggage
Friday: Auto, cosmetics, hardware, and jewelry

Strategically utilize holiday clearance sales
Target has consistently scaled markdowns on themed items after the holidays:
Day after holiday: 50% off
Three days after holiday: 75% off
One week after holiday: 90% off

Sign up for mobile coupon alerts
By signing up, a new set of coupons will be sent to your phone each month (you can even specify the exact time you want them delivered.) The coupons are scannable and can be redeemed at the register.

Shop the end caps
The end caps are the shelves that sit at the end of each aisle, seeming somewhat misplaced. However, most clearance items are usually placed here--make it your go-to place to check if you're looking for discounted items.

Check online for current deals  
Each week, Target updates its current promotions and weekly sales pages--you'll be able to scout out deals you want to take advantage of and know how much you can save before you even get in to store.

BYOB (bring your own bag)
Target offers a five-cent discount for every reusable bag you bring in to use at checkout. Every cent adds up!

Opt for store-brand items
A general rule of thumb when shopping at any major retailer, but its especially worthwhile at Target. Target has several top-quality store-brands that produce everything from food to beauty products at a much lower price than name brands.

Hit the dollar section first
Target's dollar aisle is like no other--you never know what you can find when you really look!

Utilize "Target Cartwheel"
Cartwheel is a social coupon program that Target created that allows you to set up an account to earn and receive deals. You can use each deal up to four times, as well as stack your deals with other coupons.
