Why Target is Awesome

I don't have to tell you guys that Target is awesome. You know that Target is awesome. All I can offer you today is another reason as to why.

So I was innocently out at Target today, trying to find something to buy my husband for Christmas, when I noticed a bag I'd been eyeing for the last few months, sitting all by it's lonesome in the purse & jewelry clearance section. I remembered it being at least a $30 bag, which is by no means expensive, but I just don't need another purse right now, as my husband will gladly tell you. :)

But I decided to see what it was marked down to, figuring it couldn't be more than 30% off, because it's suuuuuch a cute bag.. and when I saw the price tag, my eyes nearly fell out of my head.


Was this a joke? A test? Was my husband secretly waiting around the corner, ready to prove that I really can't buy gifts for anyone without also buying gifts for myself? Was there something wrong with the bag? Is this tagged right? Who am I? What's my name? I don't know anything anymore if this bag is marked down to not even $9. LOOK AT THIS BAG.



Am I crazy? Is this not a super cute purse? Am I the only one in the world who thinks it's at least cute enough to pay $9 for? If so, that's fine. I love it and will take care of it and accept it as is, animal print and all.



I guess I shouldn't be so shocked: Target loves to spring little surprises like this every once in a while. Oh that shirt you've been wanting all month? Here, have it in your size, for $6 on the clearance rack. Oh, those shoes you didn't have the money for last month? Hope you have $4.98, because that's all we're charging for them now!

God bless you, Target. And your clearance section.

What about you guys? Any great clearance finds at Target lately? :)

  8. "Who am I? What's my name?" Awesome. Target amnesia happens to all of us. Except it almost talked me into neon orange sunglasses the other day. And then I was like wait a minute here, it's not 1981 and it's winter...

    1. Hahahahahahaha SERIOUSLY. That is the one downfall. They mark stuff down so cheaply, you're like "Yes, I need this set of three mickey mouse diapers, even though I have no children. I might one day. Possibly. Plus it's only $2.98. I need it."

    1. Hahaha I keep looking over at my purse all day, like I'm afraid it's going to disappear, or the Target clearance cops are gonna swing by and interrogate me. Definitely one of the best deals I've gotten from Target to date! :)

    1. I was on the fence over a pair of taupe cap-toed flats there this summer, until they were marked down to $8 at the end of summer. In my size. It's like they WANT us to buy only clearance items! :)

    1. I was actually a little underwhelmed with the NM line! The stuff was cute stuff, but still barely affordable. Or just not cute enough for the price. But that's just me! You might like the stuff!

  18. So cute! It's sad how excited I get when I see those red stickers. Sometimes their clearance rack is AMAZING! Great score!
