$10 at Target

Well, I guess I should clarify this.  I spent 10 euros at Monoprix.   What’s Monoprix you ask?  Well, I had been told that Monoprix was the French version of Target.  It’s a French department store that is all over the country.  It looks like this:



I recently returned from a trip to Europe and while I was there, I was more than excited to check out this chain.  But I have to say I was a little dismayed by the two stores I went into.  The store I visited in Paris was small, had a food market on the lower level and women’s clothes and accessories on the main floor.  The clothing section had some good deals, but it was a mess and I really didn’t see anything worth trying on.  #disappointed

The second store was much larger, but I had only a few minutes to get what I needed.  And what was that, you ask?



We had forgotten our nail tools at home, so I needed to get an extra set.  These two items totalled €10.  I’m not sure about you, but it seemed like a lot to me.

So, although I didn’t get to really experience the French Target, I got the feeling it did not have the deals and selection that the real Target has.  Did I mention I’m still sad that Target left Canada?

      I’m finding that when you need necessities, you don’t get them for a bargain – especially when you are on a trip! Thanks for the visit!

      I know I kind of feel like I got ripped off in the shopping department, but I did enjoy my trip!

    Haha, nothing can beat Target, nothing! But I hear your walmarts are a little more like our Targets here in the States.

      Nothing in the world is like Target! We also have Real Canadian Superstore, which can also be quite a bit of fun for shopping, too. But I can’t wait to go to a real Target again soon!!

    Hi! Thanks for linking up with my No Rules Weekend Blog Party! You mentioned that you followed me on Pinterest but I can’t for the life of me figure out where you are to follow back. Also I can’t believe you don’t have a Target..I need my fix every now and then 🙂

      Hi Paula – I’m following you with my 50 Days of No Grey account – thanks for hosting the link up! I sure wish Target didn’t leave Canada so quickly after opening.

    Oh, I hate having to spend money on necessities that I forgot on vacation! And it seems to happen almost every time I travel (not on our last trip however, which was so nice)… Sorry you were disappointed by the store!

    Oh, that’s sad the experience wasn’t great in either venue. Yea, that seems like an awful lot to pay, especially for something so practical. 😦 Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Hope to see you back this week, Colleen.
