Target Dollar Bin Electronics: The Good and the Bad

You already know I love the Target dollar bins and recently I’ve noticed a few additions. Besides the fact that the bin now includes $3 items, on a recent visit I saw $5 electronic accessories. ‘m generally leery of going too cheap on the tech front, but I dropped the 5 bucks and took a chance.
I purchased an iConcepts smartphone power boost so I can charge my phone on the go. Hmm, I probably should have left this one at the store.
