A few weeks ago, just before my holiday I headed to Target. If you haven’t heard, they are closing all the Canadian locations within the next few months and prices have been reduced to 40-60% of the original price. I have to say, I am more than disappointed that Target is leaving after two years. It is unfair (ok, maybe that’s a little personal) and it’s just too bad. In my opinion, it was definitely bad planning on the company to expand so quickly with so many stores and so little stock in such a short period of time.
But, what’s done is done and all that is left to do is to hit the sales. So, when I entered the store, I couldn’t believe how stocked the shelves were. I’m not sure where they were hiding all the merchandise, but it definitely wasn’t in any of the stores over the past couple years.
So, I’m sad to report on this day that I didn’t buy much except for some small items from the dollar section. I wish I had bought the acrylic ball lamps like this:
Because when I went back last week, they were gone! Fast forward a couple weeks and the shelves were pretty much empty. In fact, they were selling the shelves! Yes, they were!
A few empty shelves won’t stop me from going back until they are closed. The The Budget Babe just posted this all about the shirts you need to buy among other things from Target.
Here’s hoping a few of those shirts might just be at my store. I’ll keep you posted.
Maybe it’s my Irish/English/Scottish heritage that draws me to it. Maybe it signifies Fall, warm clothes and coziness. Maybe it’s because it is being featured everywherein magazines and lifestyle TV for both your wardrobe and your home.
I’m not sure exactly what it is, but this year I am especially loving plaid. So much so, that I just bought this:
Both of these items are from Superstore – Joe Fresh. The shirt fits great and surprise, it’s not grey! Ok, well, there is a little grey stripe in the pattern, but it’s not entirely grey. What surprised me was they were both predominantly red, which is so unlike me!
I wanted to use some plaid in the house to make things feel like Fall and I saw this sheet set, also at Superstore:
They werent quite the right colours, so I didn’t buy it. But I’m on the hunt for a plaid blanket for the family room in greys and blues – wish me luck.
Lastly, this is a bold move, but I saw this wallpaper and thought how fun would this be in a powder room or a rustic cottage bathroom:
So that’s my plaid update this week. Hope you have put some plaid into your life, too!
