5 Reasons Why You Never Leave Target with Just One Thing

Chip and Joanna Gains at Target


I was in Target today for ONE thing. Okay two.


And coffee.

I don’t know why I felt like I needed a Buggy for ONE ( okay two) things!

But I got sucked in.

My basket slowly filled up with random things: a decoration from the dollar rack, a cute scarf, a wood cutting board from Chip and Joe’s new collection, Pizza for Pookah…..


This happens to me EVERY STINKIN TIME.


I’ve come up with 5 reasons why you Never leave Target with just ONE thing.


1. The dag on Dollar rack at the front of the store

This is a trap. You walk in, and there it is. Randomly cute, cheap stuff that you just HAVE TO HAVE. And it’s like that no matter the day, season or month. You grab something from this section because really, it’s only $1 right?

2. Starbucks

There is coffee. Which prompts you to leisurely stroll the aisles sipping and throwing things in your basket when you should be sticking to your freakin list.

3. The Clearance Rack

Listen. There is ALWAYS something to be had in this section. WHY? I have found many a dress, shirt, jeans, bathing suits on this rack. When I was supposed to be buying ONE THING.

4. There is always something on sale or in the Cartwheel app that you absolutely have to have RIGHT THEN AND THERE.

I mean, last week boots were 20% off. This week it was 15% Pepperidge Farm Cookies and 5% off Folgers K Cups! How am I supposed to resist?

5. Chip and Joanna Gains Heart and Hearth Collection.

And lastly, as if I didn’t have enough reasons to just throw my wallet at Target, they went and partnered with Chip and Joanna Gains of Fixer Upper. Now, truthfully, I have no need for any of this stuff. BUT I CAN’T STAY AWAY FROM THAT SECTION. Last time, they got me with a mug, this time a cutting board. I know I’m going back for that Hot Chocolate set and I  DON”T EVEN DRINK HOT CHOCOLATE THAT MUCH.

*stomps foot in frustration*

    Every single one of these reasons! I have one to add: #6. Target knows it’s the mommy hangout. They know! I’m sure they spray some “you will feel good while here” in the air just for us.

    Stomps foot and plans tomorrow’s Target run. LOL

    I go to Target fully prepared to spend at least $100. When I visit The House of Tarj, I come with the coins and with the intent to buy every single thing in my cart. I ain’t putting ish back! I earned it all! LOL
