$10 at Target [December Edition]

Monday, December 21, 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 to be back again today 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 ((again this month!)) was spending the $10! 


Last month, I opted to buy some Tazo Peachy Green Tea mix to try to re-create Starbucks' peach green tea lemonade at home. I used the pre-made mix and made some Country Time lemonade at home and it tasted pretty good. This month, I decided to splurge on the Simply Lemonade lemonade (since that's what the "recipe" for the at home drink called for) and I'm so glad I did! This lemonade is slightly more tart than the Country Time and gave it a different flavor. Also, an added bonus? The lemonade tastes pretty great on it's own!

I've been wanting to try these hair bands for a while but really didn't need any more hair bands (I have a pack of like 20 in my bathroom drawer right now and seriously use one for at least a month or until it breaks) so I opted to splurge on these too. I haven't used them yet, but am excited to see if they leave a kink in my hair like the other hair bands do.

And for my last item, I chose to spurge (theme of the month!) on these hot cocoa k-cups. I know I don't need them, I can make hot cocoa on my own, but it's so much easier to just pop the k-cup in, so hey, why not?

Oddly enough, I actually thought I was pretty close to the $10 this month, unlike being a little more than a whole dollar below last month, but when the cashier rang up my total, I had a whole additional dollar I could have spent again!


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!

  2. k I love reading these! Is it a once a month hop?? I am impressed you can have a hair band for a month. Mine break what feels like every day. I get those huge packs and just burn through them in no time. And I have to use two. I have way too much hair.

  4. I haven't seen those K-Cups but must find them. I love being able to pop on of those bad boys in and having coffee/hot chocolate within seconds.

    I've used the blog hop to focus on Christmas so next month, I'm going to have fun splurge on some "me" items.

    I'm looking at your receipt thinking - you still have almost $2 to spend!! HA! I'd blow through $10 like it was my ticket to heaven. :)
