$10 at Target [a Blog Hop]

Monday, November 23, 2015

From the very first time I saw Becky do a post on $10 at Target, I was intrigued. I mean, who only spends $10 at Target??? Then I read a little further and realized she gave herself the challenge to only spend $10 at Target on something fun for herself and I was intrigued again. I commented on her post that I loved the idea of her post and would have to try something similar (and a few other people must have too) and this blog hop was born!

I'm excited today to be co-hosting this blog hop with Becky and some other fabulous ladies! I'll be honest... I thought spending only $10 at Target would be hard. Like hard to stay within the $10 limit. However, my problem was spending the $10! I think I over thought the whole thing and worried about tax and my red card discount too much and I actually spent a whole dollar + less than I could have!



Like Becky said previously, she still gets her essentials, but she has them ring them up separately and that's exactly what I did too. I had the cashier ring up my essentials first and then my $10 items second. I used this as a splurge or as a gift to myself. Of course I had to get some holiday Oreos because #duh. I also needed some new warm, fuzzy socks because my feet have been getting super cold at my house when it's actually been cold outside. And then I splurged and got this peachy green tea. I read a comment on another blog that if you mix this with lemonade, it tastes exactly like Starbucks' peach green tea lemonade that I'm obsessed with and I have to say... it's pretty close! I used Countrytime lemonade that I made and they had said Simply Lemonade so maybe I'll have to splurge on the lemonade next time too! Overall, it was really good!


I had so much fun shopping for myself and am excited to continue this blog hop! Now, hop around and check out how the rest of my co-hosts spent their $10!

  8. Love this (and your picks)! I spend so much money at Target (duh), but I rarely buy for myself. I think I'm going to make it mandatory to spend $10 on myself every time...a little nail polish, some dollar spot picks, anything!! Thanks for sharing!

  10. This is awesome! I will be joining in on this next month for sure :) between the dollar spot and some fun finds I'm already thinking about what I could chose from. Your buys are awesome. I love Starbucks peach tea, too so I need to try that. I love making copy cat Starbucks drinks

  15. I am so impressed with your > $10 Target haul! I have been on the search to find a dupe for the Starbucks (hot) peach tea. I can only find the looseleaf Teavana but maybe Tazo has a good alternative? I must check!

  16. yay for oreos!!! How is the peach tea? It sounds yummy for sure! And warm socks? In california? :) They are super cute though!! Way to be under budget with your splurge!!

  17. YUM! I'm with you on not wanting to go over budget! I should add the $1 on to next month's budget!

  18. This is such a fun challenge! I want to try it, but I basically look for all the reasons to throw my money at Target. Maybe one day I'll give it a shot.
    Are you a peppermint fan? There are peppermint Oreos out and I'm dying to get my hands on them.

  20. How fun, and to treat yourself - you deserve it!! :) I need to look into this.. Ha!! I would totally overthink it worrying about what to get and my 'budget'..

  21. This is so fun! Every time I see Oreo's I think of you!! And I've never tried that tea. Fuzzy socks are my jam. My feet and hands stay cold (thank you Hypothyroidism)!!
