Why Target Why


Why is it when I walk into a Target for one thing, I walk out with ten? Last night all I needed was a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (bought the Target brand, much cheaper) and you see what I walked out with. However I would like to say that I bought all of those goodies for $45. Let me explain how - first of all I love their "vintagy tees" they are so comfy $9.99, secondly I needed a rug by the back door in my den so I got the one in the photo for $3.99 and the rug pad for $2.99, bunny ears from the $1 section in the front. Now here is the fun part, you know how they have the "Global Bazaar" once a year? Well all of that stuff was 75% off. So I got the little oil painting, regularly $60 for $14.99 and the $24.99 pillow for $6. Love Target.

I would have to say Target is a downfall of mine. Especially now that we have 2 little girls, I can't seem to get out of there with the few things I go in for. In fact, Brad knows that's where I go when I need a break from everyday life!

I have the same problem. Only I tend to leave with like 2 or 3 bags and much less money in my pocket. Somehow it all seems worth it in the store esp when it's on sale.:)

I was just in Target today! I went with gift cards though, which definitely eases the guilt. And, by the way, I LOVE the magic eraser. I just discovered it, and as far as I'm concerned, it IS magic!

Love Target. I've been eyeing that round black table in the back. Between the Starbucks, the dollar bins, and the home section, I'm sunk every time I go in!

Now, if I could just have a Target down here in Brazil, life would be complete! It is by far my favortie and first place I shop when I get back to the states.

You got the links set up on your blog! Great job! And yes, Target sucks me in too.

I just had a little Target shopping spree today! I was in the need for some cheap maternity clothes to get me through this "I look fat, but not quite pregnant" phase. But you got better stuff . . I think I need to go back tomorrow and look again.

I have actually been a little mad at Target ever since I tried returning some baby gifts but that is for another post another day. Unfortunatley it doesn't stop me from going there and giving them more money!

I, too have experienced what Mandi commented on about the returns...so frustrating! However, that has never stopped me from spending at least $50 when I walk out the door there!
