Good Buy Girl
My name is Town and Country Mom, and I am a Target shopper. Recovering, Target shopper, that is. What is it about that place? When my children were little, I would go, list in hand, intending to buy diapers and detergent and baby socks and a birthday card. I would come out with those things and a mirrored tray and a pair of whale print rain boots and a new book and some sort of holiday decoration and . . . . Truly, a $40 list became a (mumbled) amount on a weekly basis. The good news was that I always had enough quota for my Junior League donation. The bad news was, well, I was spending money that could be used in a better way. So, I put the brakes on, stuck to the list, and have learned that when something “off list” catches my eye to think along the lines of just because I can doesn’t mean I should. There’s a surprising rush of freedom that comes with exercising a little self-control.
And, then, there’s clearance. So, without further adieu, here are my “off list” finds of last night.
$18. For Little. She thinks they are sooo cool.
$23. Cable cardigan in navy cotton.
Thinking about pink, white, and green as well, but they are so not on the list!
Whenever I change out the window or re-merchandise our little store, Go Fish I pretend I’m Kathleen Kelly, Meg Ryan’s character in this sweet, if completely unbelievable, story.
So, there you have it. My confession. I’m back on the wagon. One day at a time.
