Do you sometimes have those days, when you think to yourself…
“Self, today sucks… let’s go wander around Target,
looking at pretty things till we start feeling better.”
What? YOU don’t? Weird.
Target is like my therapy.
I’m pretty sure there’s something mysterious in the air that makes you lose track of time, your worries (and your budget). Their popcorn is DEFINITELY laced with something dangerously addicting, and don’t even get me started on their in-store Starbucks drink offerings.
Talk about a diet downfall
That being said, even if I manage to resist that salty corn popped goodness, and overly sweet scrumptious cup o’ yum… I still seem to spend way too much on things I don’t need, but reaaaaally want. Can I get an AMEN!?
So… I’m sure you can imagine my utter shock, surprise and excitement, when I stumble upon end caps like these every once in a while…
I don’t know about you, but shiny, pretty things with a 70% off sign in front of them, sure turns my “not-so-great-day” into a SUPER one. After a little jumping up and down, furious hand clapping and squealing… I started piling things into my cart.
I can’t quite recall the exact phrase that my 7 year old muttered out from under her breath to her twin sister, but I think it was something to the effect of… “Mom is so crazy about decorating stuff, why is she making that noise?”
To be honest, I think I was more excited about this clearance pile because it had a lot of things that I had been wanting for a while, but just couldn’t justify paying full price for.
Can you believe it? $105.00 saved, people! That’s pretty dang good if you ask me.
So did you know that there’s an “unofficial” markdown schedule for Target stores? I only found this out last year, and it seems to still hold pretty true. If you don’t have this info, but shop at Target frequently… pin or save this, you’ll be happy you did.
You can also read a lot more details on how Target marks down their goods, here.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing some picture of our master bedroom nightstands that we finished, and you better believe that a few of my Target pieces are making a debut.
