And so it starts :)
Last night I went to Target. For me at least, it's where I know I'll find a lot of cheap stuff, but will spend a ton of money!
First stop, the dollar spot! Certain items are 50% off, making then 50 cents. So I stock up on kids nail polish, stickers, little puzzles, workbooks, etc...
Then I REALLY needed Ziploc bags and was too lazy to sort through my coupons (it killed me to pay more than $1.50 but the big monkey needed something to put her sandwich in for camp).
Then the real reason I was there - a new lunch bag for the big monkey. She lost hers towards the end of the last school year and I never had time to replace it. So, I got her a cute new lunch bag and a small blue ice to keep things cool in this summer heat (in 90s).
Then I stopped by the exercise DVDs. I had been searching for the 30 Day Shred after reading how great it was on a number of blogs. They finally had it, so in that goes too. I will hopefully start it this weekend.
Wait a second, back to school supplies are already out in full force! Holy Shit - summer JUST started!!
So I decide to look at the summer clearance items. I ended up getting 6 of these chairs (2 were for a friend) for $3 each:
Aren't they cute - and even if they only last one season, who cares, they were $3!!!
After going in for one lunch bag, I walked out with two bags of stuff and 6 folding chairs. Just another shopping trip to Target :)
