Traffic be damned!

That's what I thought as I backed out of my driveway to make my first pilgrimage to the new shopping mecca on Friday night. Thankfully, the traffic was not a problem at all!

Walked around for 90 minutes (with a list mind you) and spent $100 on absolutely nothing:

Toilet bowl cleaner
Furniture cleaner
Leather cleaner
Dish detergent
Toothpaste
Bird seed
Tilex
Bleach pens
Disinfectant wipes
Tampons
Carpet cleaner
Resealable plastic storage bags
Trash bags
Soft cat food
Aquarium kitty treats
A cool candle centerpiece
Lipstick
Popcorn
Peanuts
Chocolate candy bars
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Orbit's cinnamon gum
Ginger Altoids

I'm sure there was more nothing, but I can't remember everything right now. It was sooooo long ago. Anyway, the list above is an obvious illustration as to why I don't go shopping... how did I spend a hundred bucks on that?! Yikers.

Oh well... the new Target is really cool. (Pretty much like everyother Target... except new AND near my house. WhooHOOhoo.)

Target is so much fun and SO EASY to spend $100 at! And it's even harder to resist when it's so close to your house!

I LOVE Ginger Altoids!

I'm a. envious of anyone living close to a Target of any type and
b. curious as to what exactly "aquarium kitty treats" are.

S: ME, TOO! I thought I was the ONLY one who liked ginger Altoids.

L: "Aquariyums" are kitty treats shaped like little fishes sold in tiny aquarium shaped plastic containers. Believe it or not, we received a free sample in some kitty litter once and our cats LOVE them. So, I'm a sucker. I keep buying them. Guess marketing works. (Whew... good to know. Considering it is how I make the dough to pay the mortgage. HA.)
