I had to go to Target to pick up birthday cake and party favors for the little one’s birthday party tomorrow. God, help me with a house full of 5 year olds. Anyway, before I walked out I had spent $53.47. It should have cost me half that but I needed ice cream to go with the cake, I picked up a rug to put inside the front door for snowy/dirty little feet (now they have three chances to get the job done), bags for the party favors, popcorn, pizza rolls, juice and milk. Not bad really, I’m not usually allowed to leave until I’ve spent over $100.00, but discouraging nonetheless.
I challenge anyone to go to Target this weekend and spend less than $25.00. Reports are due by Monday.
I usually spend less than $25 at Target, but this is not an accomplishment when I only went for a $1.99 bottle of Half & Half.
Naturally, the evil merchants have placed the groceries at the far side of the store.
I have never walked out with only my intended purchase.
