Target just made it easier not to buy things you don't need on your Target run. 

The Minneapolis-based retailer is testing what it calls Drive Up in the Twin Cities, a news release says. It's a curbside pickup service in which a Target employee brings what you ordered to your car so you don't have to go inside.

Dawn Block, Target's senior VP of digital, says Drive Up is their "latest effort to make it easier and faster" for busy shoppers to get what they need and "get back to their day."

Drive Up is available for nearly 200,000 items, and you can use the service at stores in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area so long as you have the latest version of the Target app on your iPhone.

Here's how it works 

All you have to do is choose Drive Up when ordering something through the Target app via iPhone. 

Like this: 

The app will let you know when your order is ready. Then just click the "I'm on my way" button when you're headed to the store. 

When you get there, pull into one of the designated parking spots and someone will be out with your order.

And you can leave Target without accidentally spending $150 when you were just running in to buy shampoo.
