$10 at Target

Ok, so it’s not really Target where I spent $10.  It was Giant Tiger, a discount store you will find in Eastern Canada.  Although, it wasn’t Target, it sort of felt like a Target.  Sort of, but not really.  There was a lot of merchandise and the prices were pretty affordable, but it wasn’t as fun as Target. Can you tell I am still upset that Target left Canada?

But on to what I bought.  These towels.  Aren’t they cute and beachy?


They were three for $10.  We were on holidays in Prince Edward Island and needed some cheap and cheerful towels to get us through a few days at the beach.  I have to admit that my expectations were not great for these towels.  But since we have been home and have continued to use them for trips to the pool and multiple times in the washer and dryer, I am happy to report they are holding up well.

They aren’t as great as towels that I could have bought at Target, but sometimes you need to improvise.   Target, please come back to Canada!

$10 at Target

Last month, I got an opportunity for a quick stop in at Target.  I had the kids with me, so after they got their time in the toy department, I squeezed in a few minutes in the beauty, health care and the dollar sections.   Spending time in Target is a treat to me and even though I had my two little shadows with me, I managed to find a few things.

Want to see them?

The pom poms were from the dollar section and the plan is to put them on the end of my son’s Santa hat (I’ve got until next year to do this now).   The First Aid to Go kit is now in my car’s console. The Savon soap is patiently waiting on my counter to be used. The small pack of band-aids are in my purse along with the tissues.  All perfectly needed and useful items.  Can you believe that all the items came to just under $10??

They did!

Maybe it is a good thing the kids were with me, as I’m sure I would have spent a lot more!

$10 at Target

Ever since Target left Canada (insert sad face here), I long for our trips south of the border so I can hit up my favourite store.  A few days ago, I got my opportunity.   The Canadian American border crossing is approximately 40 minutes from my house.  The nearest Target is about 60 minutes from my house.  My sister is about three hours from my house.

Being that it’s the holidays and a busy time for both our families, we decided to meet part way for lunch to celebrate and exchange gifts.  It was great to catch up, see my nieces and take a few pictures.  On our drive home, I made the whole family stop at Target to fulfill my need.  My husband had phone calls to make so while he did that, I took the kids around the store – not exactly what I envisioned.

They each felt the need to buy something with their own money, so off to the toy section we went.

Here’s what they had to have:

My daughter loves the Littlest Pet Shop and found this to add to her collection.

My son is still a big Minecraft fan, so he got this:

This package contained a chest. He wasn’t too thrilled with what he got and in the two days since we have been home, it is now lost.  Thus, no photo to show you what was inside.

Funny thing is that both these items came to just around $10.  No lie.

I may have created little Target monsters as they are wondering when can we go back….
