Thanks to my sister, she won a $25 gift card to Target and being our mom is sweet, she gave us an extra $20 to go with it. It’s a good thing she did- we ended up needing it!
So as you can tell, we went to Target. I had forgotten how much more expensive Target was compared to Wal-Mart! I swear that after finding a Valentine’s Day card, we walked went from one end of the store to the other at least 5 times. I could be exaggerating, but that’s what it seemed like! We already had a Valentine’s gift, a card, 2 pillows (that we later traded- you’ll see), and we were looking at hampers when my cyber guy (the one I have a thing for) sent me a text message. He asked what I was up to, I told him, and he replied with “What are you buying me?”. I said “Well what do you want?”. He wanted Cheetos and a Dr Pepper. Wait… Couldn’t you get that at the Corner Store? Needless to say, he didn’t get it.
So we got the hamper (this would be a lot better than throwing dirty clothes on the floor for the kitties to use as a litter box) and decided to look for a comforter for the bed. Now I wish she had gotten a $25 gift card to Wal-Mart. The prices at Target for comforters are outrageous! No thank you!
So we passed on the comforter and decided to just look around when I saw the pillows. The 2 pillows we had in the cart were $5 each. I saw cheaper pillows! Only $3- you can’t beat that! So I took the $5 pillows out of my basket and grabbed 3 $3 pillows. Now that was a steal! It’s like laying on air!
I think we were done after that. Well, almost. We passed the ice cream area and I asked if we could get some ice cream. I got my ice cream! So all in all, we only spent $32 with some cupcakes thrown in there.
Now I await my turn to win a gift card so I can go shopping!
