9 THINGS THAT INEVITABLY HAPPEN AT TARGET


Ladies, you know what I'm talking about. Oh yeah. the rush, the deals, the beauty. Target beckons us!! It does, that red bulls eye is the symbol of life. The epitome of our shopping lusts and addictions! lol

So, it goes something like this.......

1. You go in for eyeshadow and almond butter. It'll take what? 5 minutes? 10 tops?

You come out 1 hour later with a cart full and you forgot the darn eyeshadow. 


2. You will not look in the dollar bins
 Only on your way in, you saw those red and white checked plastic hot dog holders and well, you WILL have a backyard BBQ this summer

3. AFTER You throw your hot dog holders in the cart, you tell yourself no more, 
NO MORE 

 But you have to go on the other side and that's where you fight some lady over the last teal and white damask clipboard. She, as the more mature lady, decides it's not worth the fight. 
You Holler a tiny "victory"!!!! 



4. You tell yourself you won't look at clothes


But then you will definitely look at clothes, someone left the "I don't sweat, I sparkle" tank on the end cap. Hmmm, what else is looking cute today?


5. You think to yourself, “Hmm, I just looked at the home decor last week.”

So, of course, you go look to see if anything has changed. I mean, maybe they got some new rugs in. 


6. You will not go into the hair aisle 


Guess what you're doing tonight? Dying your hair a beautiful shade of extra light natural blond (got it on clearance) and using a bristle brush. 



7. You pass the nail polish aisle and stop to take a look, even though you have plenty at home.

 
So you grab a purple push-up OPI and hot pink sizzle Essie.
Well you don't have these shades yet. 

8. You realize you’ve spent too much time in Target and really need to leave.



 Wait, you have to look at the accessories first! You need a Blue Fedora with a white band to go with your swimsuit.


 9. Making your way to checkout, you say "I will not use my RED card, I will not use my RED card"

 Cashier: "Do you want to save 5% and use your Red Card?" Me: "Heck yeah I do"
(who cares about the 22.9 % APR, it's Target...you'll pay it off so you can what?   Yep, buy more stuff!)
 

What did I just do??? I'm good with Target, for awhile.......til next week!

Gosh, I miss her!! My husband always used to compare me to her at the holidays. Oh, the memories. Maybe I'll dress as her for Halloween this year. Bet Target has a costume!

  5. Funny post!!! Lucky for me the Target's here are not close to where I live haha. One is downtown and the others require driving. I did go to the one downtown a month ago and I was like "I need to get out of here..." I hope that you have a great day today!! :-)

  10. This is extra hilarious, I went to Target on my way to work this morning... Target-1 Mia-0. However, they open at 8 am and I have to be at work at 8:30 am, so I usually pop in on my way to work so I'm forced to hurry! I did manage to take a look at some bathing suits and purchase condiment containers from the $1 spot of course ;) Love my Target Debit card! It's the best!

  11. Haha LOVE this! This is definitely me every.single.time. without fail! However, I do use my Red Card every time, but that's because it's a debit card and is connected to my checking account so no APR fees :)

    1. I know, I was just telling another reader, how do I not have the debit one??? On my to do list: Target Debit!!!!! So glad you can relate. There are some people I know who do not like Target...oh the horror!!!!! :-)

  16. Yesssss, the power of the red bullseye! There is usually a stop at the Target Starbucks in there too...because how can you be right there next to Starbucks and not get one?!

    1. Me too!! Exactly. Now if there is no Starbucks at Target, I'm mad. Ha!

  17. Every last one of these is true for me!!! (Well except the hair color because I am not brave enough to do that myself) but they seriously pump something in the air in that place that makes you want EVERYTHING.

  23. Oh my gosh this was hilariously spot on! I do all of the above when I go to Target haha. I go to Target a lot too which is sad, especially when I have nothing to do during lunch break. I'm just going to go look, I leave with a good $100 worth of stuff I DON'T need haha.

  27. Oh man, this is so true! Target knows my weak spot. So many pretty things! I recently got the debit card version of the REDcard and it is awesome! You still get to save 5% but it comes out of a checking account instead of accumulating interest. So, that gives us another excuse to shop there, right? Thanks for sharing this post with Hump Day Happenings!

  30. Story of my life! I just went this weekend for 2 things and ended up buying over 20 items.... once I buy way too much in the clothing, beauty product and electronics areas... then I end up in the grocery section and it starts all over again! It's a love/hate relationship I have with target :)

  31. I have instigated a Self-Ban on Target, I go in for toothpaste and spend $100.00. How the HECK did that happen.

    If I enter that darn store it is with a list and a kid who has to STOP me it i deviate from the list!!!!

  32. Okay, I'm a Brit. I'm not familiar with Target....but we do have Costco over here. Is that similar 'cos I can't go in there without buying all manner of stuff. #BrilliantBlogPosts
