$10 at Target [April]

Monday, April 18, 2016

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 love to try something similar (and a few other people must have too) and this blog hop link up was born!

I'm excited to be back again today co-hosting this link up with Becky and some other fabulous ladies!  If you posted today as well, don't forget to link up with us below so we can see your awesome $10 hauls!

This month I did something different. I went to Target for one of my regular weekly (or bi-weekly or tri-weekly... you know how it goes!) trips to Target for things that I actually needed (and let's be honest, some things I didn't actually need) when I came across some things that would be perfect for $10 at Target. I didn't really have enough time to look around so I snagged the items then and figured I'd go back for more later. Well, I did just that, BUT now I don't have any receipts to show what I bought and how much it truly cost. So, for this month, we're going estimate.



I got these two items on my first trip. My first item was these notecards. The notecards were from the Dollar Spot and were just too cute to pass up. I mean, who wouldn't want to get a note with a cute little flamingo on the front in the mail? The second item was the Justin's peanut butter cups. I'd been seeing people rant and rave about these peanut butter cups for ages and I'd yet to try them. They are a bit pricey (being organic and all) so I hesitate to buy them regularly but I figured for my haul, I could splurge. They barely made it out of the store and into my car before I devoured them. They are SO GOOD.

Notecards : $1
Peanut Butter Cups : $1.99


On my second trip, I picked up a few more items. The first items were these brushes. On one of my previous hauls, I got some E.L.F. brushes and LOVE them. I decided to try a few more and so far... I love them just as much! The second two items are more Justin's items. I actually wanted more peanut butter cups since I loved them so much, but I couldn't find any so I opted for trying the hazelnut butter with pretzels. I love Nutella and thought they would be a healthier alternative. I did end up trying them and I have to say... I like Nutella better. I'm sure, in reality, both are equally bad for you, so I'll stick with the creamier option of Nutella. This one didn't have a bad taste or anything, but it was a little thicker than I'd like. The honey peanut butter I actually haven't tried yet. I have tried their regular almond butter and love it so I'm hoping this is good too since I always make myself a peanut butter and honey sandwich. Maybe this will help me skip a step and I can kill two birds with one stone with this package. I'll keep you posted!

Brush : $1
Brush : $1
Hazelnut Butter with Pretzels : $1.99
Honey Peanut Butter : $1.19


So, if you're keeping track... 

Notecards : $1
Peanut Butter Cups : $1.99
Brush : $1
Brush : $1
Hazelnut Butter with Pretzels : $1.99
Honey Peanut Butter : $1.19

Total : $8.17

Somewhere in there you'd need to add 8% sales tax and subtract 5% for the Target Red Card... which, if you ask me, is just too much math to do on your own, so we'll estimate that I still had a good almost $2 I could have spent. So, as it turns out, I could have spent more! Oh well, I'd say this evens out some of my overage trips. Next month, I'll keep better track!


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

  3. I love those notecards! Every time I've gone to Target recently, they don't have any notecard packs in the dollar spot and I'm bummed. Those PB cups look great though! Must try them.

  11. I for one would love a flamingo card! I also love Justin's products! We usually just eat the spreads straight from the pouch, no shame ;)

  12. I think the Justin's has less sugar than the regular ol' nutella. I actually like it better. But I'm not really a nutella freak like others. Most others. Those pb cups though, yum. Minus the dark chocolate. Not a dark chocolate fan.

  15. I've never had any Justin's treats but I've heard good things, I'll have to try them. The makeup brushes are such a smart buy too--great idea!

  16. Theoretically you could get like 8 brushes (depending on tax) and still be under!! I love those elf brushes!

  17. You were WAY UNDER! You should go back and make up that $2!!
    Also. Your tax is only 8%?! I know ours is a little over 9%.

  18. One of these days, I will do one of these. The Dollar Spot has really turned out to be one of my favorite spots ever! That's it, I'm setting a task & I will do this linkup next month! Now, I just gotta drive the half hour to the closest Target. :)
