Another month, another trip… or 10 to Target. If I was keeping score I would have to say that Target won this month. In fact when I went to write this post up, I had a bit of a dilemma. Which items was I going to use for this post? So pretty much I am confessing that I didn’t really make one $10 trip to Target, I made like 3 🙄 . Let me break it down.
My first trip was by myself. I was hoping to find some fall decorations. I found none and left with two very inexpensive maxi dresses (How does that even happen.) I bought them, intending to take one back later, with some leftover Christmas money. However I later decided to keep both of them since they were only 8.50 each.
On the second trip Emily found some Halloween costume inspiration that she HAD to have. Think Minnie Mouse meets a nice witch. I went ahead and bought the items to put them away for later. I have learned, through experience, to buy the dollar spot items when I can.
During the third trip I finally found some fall decorations and a cheap jewelry find that I couldn’t pass up. I bought both of these with “my” money.
So it isn’t like I wasted a wad of cash at Target this month, but I did spend a little more than usual since I found the maxi dresses. One of which I will totally be sharing in an upcoming fashion post! Yup, another. There must be something about fall that does that to me.
Now that I have justified my actions, let’s move on.
Here are a few things that we found at Target recently…
We found some cute fall/ Halloween decor but I have to say something. I was REALLY disappointed with Targets selection of fall compared to Halloween. They easily had twice as much Halloween stuff and I really wish it had been reversed. I found all of these items for $3 each.
Apparently I had pumpkin spice on the brain. Why am I not surprised.
PSL’s $6.39 (I really wonder how these taste. I don’t always love a Starbucks PSL)
Pumpkin Apron $14.99 (A budget buster, but oh my goodness!!!)
Pumpkin Shredded Wheat $2.50
One of our favorite things to do at Target is browse the clearance aisles to see what we can find.
Donut Shopkin $13.88 (The girls REALLY wanted me to buy this.)
Sugar Fix earrings $3.88
Letter Board Icons $.88
We snapped a photo in the makeup aisle to document the trip, which Marissa decided to photo-bomb, and went along our way… for like the 3rd time that month. I really need to get my act together next month.
What items did I choose to share in this post?
The mini pumpkins were such an obvious choice for me. I honestly don’t have very many fall decorations and I LOVE that these were such an affordable addition to what I do have.
The earrings I snagged on a whim. Mostly because they were so cheap and I don’t have anything like them. The fun part is that when I got them home and tried them on, I loved them even more.
How did they add up?
Pumpkins $1.00 x 4
Sugar Fix Earrings $2.98 (was $9.99)
Red Card Discount -5% $0.35
Tax +8.0750 $0.54
Grand Total $7.17
So all in all even if I did spend a little more than normal at Target this month, I got some really great deals on some items that I love.
Well played Target, well played!
