If anytime of year calls for tightening the ol pursestrings, it's this one. II have been on a roll lately, saving money left and right. Not spending all over the place. Look at me go! So in case you forgot my awesome, super original (totally) money-saving tips like this one and this one, I have another one. And although I did a huge majority of my shopping online this year and scored free shipping, somehow I've found myself in Target no less than 4 times in 3 days. I know that 98% of you are probably as obsessed with Target as I am. And that the call of that little red sticker is a strong one. Experts say you should only buy things on sale if you would buy them at full price. I used to throw things in my cart willy-nilly. Willy nilly I say! But not anymore. I really do try to ask myself that question when I creep up on every clearance section in my happy place...would i buy this at its regular price? Responsible Shannon says no to red-stickered candles and random thank you notes. She says yes to things like work shirts for John...
and hell yes to .58 spaghetti sauce! And I actually use that brand too! Dude, and Manwich Bold is where it's at. I love a good sloppy joe but one with a kick? Even better. And although I wasn't sure what made these items get moved to the clearance rack, I didn't ask any questions. I probably told 15 people that I got 36 cent soup that week. It's the little things these days.
and when it comes to Christmas shopping for my baby boy? $1.58 shirts? You bet. And the ridiculously overpriced Dwell clothing line, the one with the robots? Only getting bought on clearance. Sorry for all the questions. I get really excited looking at these deals I already got.
So that's the way we're shopping these days. It gives me the zing! of shopping that I miss without breaking the bank. Johns everywhere are sighing in relief. So how bout you guys, get anything good at Target for a ridic low price? I know you wanna brag about it.
Oh and did you guys know about the Amazon Mom program? You don't even have to be a mom to join and you get Amazon Prime benefits. That's free 2 day shipping. Booya. If you order today, you'll have that ish by Friday. Just google it and sign up.
