Target giveaway, an ode to Target


Oh Target, thou art more lovely than the fairest jewel.

Many have told of thy splendors,

but to me thy true beauty is in the vast abundance

of  the decorations adorning thy shelves.

I shall sing thy praises forever,

and forever be true to thee.


Target giveaway, an ode to Target

Where do I even begin my sweet, dear Target?

First of all, thanks for always being there for me. Every new town we moved to greeted us with a large, red beacon of familiarity–a little bit of comfort in an unsure time. Whatever I needed I knew that I could pull into your parking lot and find it.

Whether I’m looking for the last element for a gallery wall, or trying to get out of a DIY project I’ve been putting off for years, you’ve always been right there, with your cheery Dollar Spot and vast assortment of all the items of my dreams lining the aisles.

Although it’s true that sometimes your sale prices have me chuckle to myself (I don’t think you should be able to call something a sale when you’ve dropped 20 cents off the price, that’s just a cruel joke), your clearance gems make me want to shout “Huzzah!”, right in the middle of the home goods department.

Today I’m linking up my Target love with the ladies behind the $10 at Target challenge (the glorious store where I found that cute round mirror on my gallery wall and the great fabric growth chart was in the Dollar Spot). I’m proud to say that this month I spent $8.60, so I was able to stay under budget again!

It would be so fun if you joined in with the linkup, so be sure to enter the giveaway and you’ll be funded for two months’ worth! Plus a little extra for a Starbucks treat whilst perusing the aisles, wink wink.

    How fun, thanks! Is it okay to say I like to shop for everything at Target? Haha, my hubby has no idea why I love it so much, but Monday I walked in and walked out with exactly what I wanted, and only $15…woohoo!

    Ooh yay a giveaway! I literally have never won one of these things…sadness…I enjoy Target, but I stay away from it generally so I don’t end up buying a ton of CLOTHES for ME lol.

    I love so many things, I head straight for the snacks, then to the clothes! Lovin’ the Victoria Beckham collection – wow!

    There is nothing better than a trip to Target. I always tell my husband that I will be happy where ever we live as long as there’s a Target down the road. I can’t resist their clearance items. They get me every time.

    Do you know how much damage I could do in the (not so dollar) Dollar Spot with $25 (free!) dollars?

    Honestly, my favorite thing about Target is the fact there’s a Starbucks inside. Is it bad to get a coffee going in and another going out???
