The Target Debacle

It's been 5 days since my last post. Some may think the reason why is that we've been too busy jam packing the day with fun and educational activities. Those persons would be wrong.

Vance and I have been to Target 3 times in the past 5 days.

The first trip was to elbow our way through the crowds trying to get Halloween stuff 50% off and to stock up on house stuff. We did get a few good deals, one being a storage container for $3.49. I got home, packed up our Spooky stuff from around the house and went to put the lid on the container. Eff, wrong sized lid. This is what happens when I attempt to organize.

The second trip was to get the right sized lid and a couple of things I had forgotten the day before. Many trips back and forth from the Halloween section to the normal container section later, still not a right fit could be found. Where's my Cinderella?

(For clarification purposes, I only brought the lid back to the store. Not the actual container itself. I had written down what size of container I had bought, so I used one of the normal containers as a guide.)

The third trip was to return the glorious orange and black 22 gallon pain in the ass contraption. A total of $3.68 was returned back on my credit card. Funny, I think I spent double that just on gas getting there and back. And there and back. And there and back. However, I did pick up more diapers, because you know, you always need more diapers and a shirt that was 30% off for Vance.

Target always comes out ahead. Even if you're only there to make a return.

    I feel your pain. I am Target all the time and am always returning something and buying much more then I planned. As soon as I leave, I remember something I forgot and put in on my list for the next day.

  2. Ahhh, no one can get enough of Target. Love that place and love that it is so close to home to make it even more convenient! Good post up you have a big day tomorrow!
