$10 at Target [June] + a $100 Stitch Fix Giveaway!

Monday, June 20, 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 had a little trouble deciding what I wanted to get. Most of the things that I think of are  things that are too expensive. Or are pretty close to the top of my budget and I don't know what to pair it with. I've tried to keep a running list of ideas in my phone after browsing everyone else's picks so I have some ideas for future trips, but this time, I was stumped.

After a little walking around and wandering the aisles, here's what I ended up getting:

As you know from previous posts, I found those Justin's Peanut Butter Cups and quickly became obsessed. I had wanted to get more this time, since they are a spurge for me since they're kind of expensive, but I couldn't find the regular sized, only these minis. I loved the big ones so much, I figured, why not try the minis? I will admit, they were good, but I do like the big ones better. I love chocolate but I felt like these had too much chocolate and not enough peanut butter. I don't usually say that about peanut butter cups (I actually like the mini Reese's better than the big ones), but the dark chocolate on these were a bit too much and I felt like I needed more peanut butter.

My second item was this kombucha. I've been hearing so much about kombucha from Erin and Laura that I thought I should find one to try. This one sounded the best to me (I'm not super adventurous when it comes to food and drink), but this one had cranberry and I thought that sounded good. I tried it when I got home and think I liked it. It definitely had a distinct flavor that I wasn't used to, so I'm not quite sure if I fully liked it. I think it was just more tart than I expected since it was basically unsweetened cranberry juice, but I'd definitely be willing to try it again!

So, how'd I do on my budget?
I was way below! I only spent $8.25.
I was going to show you a picture of my receipt since I actually kept it this time and only bought my $10 at Target items on it, but when I went to go find it for a picture, it had been smashed in the bottom of my purse, so I'll spare you the picture and just break down the cost.

Justin's Peanut Butter Cups : $4.99
Kombucha : $3.69
No tax (I guess because they're food items?)
Minus RED Card discount : ($0.43)
Total : $8.25

Seems like I can either go way over or way under! Ha! Hopefully next month I do better. (But probably don't hold your breath!)

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!

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. I haven't tried Justin's stuff yet, but have wanted to since I saw you share about it before. I need to do that. Especially if you've bought twice and shared. Good choices!

  2. I want to try those peanut butter cups! They look so good!

  3. Russ likes a strawberry kombocha. I've never had the guts to try it.

  4. I hear about the kombucha but I'm not that brave. I read the description once and was like nope nope nope. In one of my anth classes the teacher made us a south pacific islands kava drink. It was gross, and makes your tongue go numb. So I'm still good for a few years on brave drink tries.

  5. You did good sticking to the food items!

  6. My husbands first name is Justin, so I keep meaning to buy these Justins as a "gag" gift for him, and he LOVES choc. and peanut butter together.
    Great little haul.

  7. I've never tried either one of those things...and you always get those peanut butter cups...I need to try those at some point.

  8. I've never tried kombucha but have heard a little bit about it. Isn't it supposed to have some good health benefits? Love the Justin's PB cups- I tried some a few weeks ago for the first time, and YUM!

  9. What a fun concept... I seriously can not get on the kombucha train...

  10. Was the winner of the last SF giveaway ever announced? I probably just missed it.... Hooray for another! I'd definitely take $100 in SF credit!

  11. Those peanut butter cups are SO good. I think I would probably eat that whole entire bag in one sitting though.

  12. Yummy Target trip..!! Kombucha is definitely a unique flavor, I like it but I also drink apple cider vinegar (health benefits), strong flavors that's for sure. Good for you for at least trying it!! :) To some, I'm sure the smell can be a turn off enough, ha!!

  13. Gah kombucha. You are a brave soul. I can't stand the taste or smell and the first sip I ever had I got some of the spore starter in it and almost died. Kinsey and Brian love it though(???) lol.

  14. I actually enjoy the taste of kombucha..I think it is the fermented carbonation that is tasty. I thought maybe you had tried some back on Whole 30?

  15. What is the kombucha? Is it a regular drink or with alcohol? I wonder if I can find one anywhere near me!

  16. I still think if you are below one month, you can carry it over to the next. Target shopper problems ;)

  17. It seems like a trend with this month that nobody really had an idea on what they wanted & the Dollar Spot disappointed. Oh well, we all got some goodies & that's always fun. :)

  18. I keep hearing so much about kombucha, but I have never tried it! I'm curious, but not adventurous at all with food and drinks!

  19. I haven't tried either and honestly have never even heard of kombucha and really don't know what it even is!

  20. I keep hearing about those peanut butter cups... I need to get some!
