The $10 at Target link-up has easily became one of my favorite blog posts of the month. I mean think about it, “Oh shucks, I have to go to Target to shop for that monthly link-up I co-host.” It is pretty much the best excuse to go shopping ever. BUT… there is always a but right?! I have also challenged myself to be frugal with my $10. I do this by trying to shop for things that I actually need and ALWAYS looking through every bit of clearance I can find in the store.
This month I went with a plan. The husband recently built me a desk and there were a few “essential” items that I was wanting for my very own space. However I also planned to stick to my typical ‘let’s see what I can find’ routine, so I wasn’t sure if the list would actually get purchased or not.
Here is what caught my eye.
I started in the dollar spot where I found file folders, stationary and washi tape. All things that were on my list… but I kept looking.
Next up I found a stapler (also on the list) and some summer clearance. That pitcher with the stacking glasses was pretty cute, but not really something we need and I am this <> close to having a cabinet full of just plain white dishes. Those were pretty tempting though.
I found a Captain America shirt that would be fun for the gym, but I DO NOT need any more gym shirts. The dress was fun but it was a budget buster by a dollar or two. I REALLY liked these flats but I just bought some new ones and imagined me getting them dirty way too fast. The mason jar salt and pepper shakers are so me, but I didn’t really need them either.
So I decided to be practical.
This was the first Target challenge that I didn’t buy anything on clearance. That felt a little weird but at least I knew I purchased things I was wanting to buy.
How did it all add up?
9.99! Say what?!
I may have left the store with a giddy grin on my face when I saw I came within a penny.
