I feel like this post has turned me into a liar and that is solely because I spent way more than $10 at Target this month.
I’m going to take a second to be honest with you. I haven’t always been that in love with Target. I know, you are gasping right now. Track with me for a minute… I felt this weird pressure that I should be head over heels for Target. I mean, don’t “all” bloggers love Starbucks and Target?! I wasn’t fitting into the mold very well. The thing about me is I don’t really like molds. Actually molds kind of tick me off. There are a gillion molds out there and people spend far too much time trying to squeeze themselves into them so they will be “cool” You thought we left high school years ago, but I honestly think the mentality never goes away.
Back to my point… I wanted to join this linkup for the “me time”, not because I was a Target fan. I knew the money was in the budget and I needed that once a month escape. I never expected or intended to become even more #basic by falling for Target. Fast forward 12 months later and I have actually discovered a love for the bulls-eye. My visits there are growing to be more frequent, expensive, and enjoyable. I wanted to fight against it at first, but I finally just gave in.
So I guess my point is if you really give something a chance, you might grow to love it and that molds are stupid. You do you and forget about what the majority says. Solid advice for a Monday morning, right? And just for the record I am more of a Dunkin girl but am forced into Starbucks by a lack of options.
With all of that out of the way, lets get down to business.
Here are a few things we found at Target this month…
- Valentine Cards $1
- Valentine Plates $1
- Valentine Candle Holders $3
- $3 Necklace Holder
- $1 Airplane stickers
- $1 To-do list
- $3 To-do pad
- $3 Paper straws
- $3 Menu chalkboard
- $1 Cactus stationary
- $3 Hello love sign
- $3 Hello love bag
- $3 Cactus wall pendant
I could keep sharing. I actually took more photos than this! The dollar spot was loaded with new stationary, Valentines, and work out stuff (aka a few of my favorite things). Plus, almost half of the cosmetics were on clearance. It was CRAZY!
So what did I pick?
Surprise! Since y’all have already seen my coffee mug, I couldn’t post a teaser photo of it! The Valentine plates seemed like a silly purchase to me since the girls are getting older, but they are just so cute and fun for lunch time. I also grabbed a necklace holder for the girls’ bathroom since they have more jewelry than I do. It ended up being way to short for a lot of their necklaces but that was nothing that a little DIY pedestal couldn’t fix!
How did it add up?
Plates 2x $1.00
Coffee Mug $4.99
Necklace Holder $3.00
Grand Total $10.80
So on a technical note I am over budget. But, since I have been considerably under budget for the past 2 Target challenges I call this a win.
Mark your calendars now for next months linkup, February 20th! Since I took Marissa to do the $10 challenge around her birthday, I might just have to do the same thing for Miss Emily next month.
