In getting this blog back up and running I have found a little fun read for you all to enjoy over the weekend. I will be outside as much as possible since it is slightly warm here. Anyways, there is this ridiculously spot on article floating around on the interwebs about a woman’s shopping excursion in Target. It is amazing, and freakishly true. There is so many great points in the article. It basically says that women go to Target for something random, in this case hair spray. Take the loooong way around the store by going in every department. Become obsessed with mark downs, get things you don’t need. Spend too much money and end up forgetting the one thing you go in for.
I cannot relate to the forgetting what I need thing. With three kids it is a big endeavor to get all the kids to the store or to have someone watch them while I go. So when I do get out I make it worth it. There is no rest for the weary, or forgetting the hairspray you went for. But I can relate to the getting distracted thing. I always find myself saying “well I got this, we can go. But let me just go by the…” It is almost always the clearance rack for clothes, I mean $5.99 for a shirt. No I don’t need it but that is a good deal. Or the household area. Again I don’t need anything but I always look, get a few ideas. Or buy something that is so cute.
This article makes me feel warm and fuzzy because now I know I am not alone. Other people waste time and money in a store with a big round target symbol on it. Yep, we can all bond over this affliction.
