The Seductions of Target

May 18th, 2009 at 09:06 pm

I remember now why I don't go to Target.
Although I had (well, maybe) to go tonight since my iron completely quit, I knew it would be too enticing.

I had a friend who maintained you couldn't get out of Target under $100, but tonight it was $99.67. I bought really cute sandals for DD, the new Dylan CD for me, and more than a few other things besides the iron.

Sadly enough, all this temptation could've been avoided. I came home, unwrapped the new iron, but decided to give the old one one last try. Despite not working all day, the minute its rival entered the house, it started working just fine. Now if I can just return the new one without venturing deeper into the store!

Oh, and my ebay items sold. Add $5.73 to my total

    Ha ha ha... I just don't go there unless I absolutely HAVE TO. $60 was our number. Never under that once Target came to town. Ah, but we got our spending under control. Not so tempted by those little red clearance tags anymore. Smile

    Good job on the ebay. SuperTarget is my grocery store, so I go there often. I have learned to buy only what I need...it will always be on sale again!!

    LOL -- I went yesterday to stock up on toiletries, etc, and my total was $100.27. So you are totally right Smile

    I am trying to lose some weight and have found Lean Cuisines to be a cheap option for portion/calorie control. Last week they were $1.88 each and I did buy some other items and my total was $109!

    Ohhhhh....Target should be called "The Bad Place" (not that is a bad place in and of itself, going in there is bad for MY checkbook/wallet is what I mean)

    I remember the day I went in there with my 4, yes FOUR item list ...... $100 later ..... said 4 items were maybe $20 :-X bad, Bad, BAD ;-)
