[$10 at Target] December.

Monday, December 19, 2016

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 and then hop around and check out how the rest of my co-hosts (and everyone else!) spent their $10!

For this month's $10 at Target, I really had no clue what I was looking for. I thought at first that I would get some goodies in the dollar section since Target had been totally hitting it out of the park with their Christmas stuff, but then I changed my mind.

I got this wallet and these double layered gloves!

When I went to Disneyland a couple weeks ago with Erin and Desiree, Erin had a wallet super similar and I thought it was genius. She said she uses her small wallet from Target when she goes to Disneyland and only takes the necessities so her big wallet doesn't take up so much room in her purse. GENIUS! My wallet is giant and takes up so much real estate when I could be carrying jackets or extra snacks or something, so when I saw this at Target this month, I knew I needed to get it! It holds my Disneyland pass, my Driver's License, and a couple credit cards PERFECTLY.

These gloves are perfect for work! During the winter months, when we start work at 3:30am on Sunday, IT IS COLD. We are outside taking money from customers and I often wear lots of layers on my body, but my hands are freezing. I can't wear regular gloves because I can't accurately hold the money and give out tickets and give out change without worrying about giving too much change or the money slipping out of my hands.

These gloves are perfect because they are multi layer! You can wear the full glove and fingerless glove.... or just the full glove... or just the fingerless glove! I love the options and I love the the full glove still lets you use your phone. I hate that about regular gloves where I always have to take one off if I want to use my phone to text or to take a picture. I can't wait to have an opportunity to wear them. I'm thinking I better plan a trip to Disneyland so I can use both of my new things!

So, how'd I do on my budget?
Since I bought these along with some other items, I don't have a receipt to show, but here's the breakdown.

Wallet : $7.99
Gloves : $2.45 (originally $3.50 - cold weather items on sale 30% off)
Minus RED Card discount : ($0.52)
Tax (8%) : $0.79

Total : $10.71

Over again! Oops.

I kind of had a feeling it would be over a little this month but when I found these two items, I knew I had to have them so I was just happy I didn't go over by a dollar or more.

Next month, we'll be sharing our hauls on Monday, January 16th. Mark your calendars, get your shopping on, and link up with us on the 16th and show us what you got!


  1. So I have to know, how cold is COLD to you? Love those gloves and the wallet. My wallet is falling to pieces and I really need to get something different.

  2. I have a very similar wallet and it's perfect for when you need downsize a bit.

  3. Cute gloves what a neat idea! Great little haul!

  4. No food?! I'm shocked!! That wallet is great!

  5. With those double layer gloves you are ready for some real cold weather!

  6. You didn't go over that much, so not bad at all! Those gloves are awesome - I love that you can mix and match how you want to wear them.


  7. I love the gloves! I think I need a pair of those too! I need a new wallet too, that is genius being able to take part of it out!

  8. I love the gloves! I'm so upset with myself, I did not get to Target this past month to participate. :(

  9. Love the wallet, especially the color!! :) The gloves are cute and I'm with Beth, what is cold where you are? ;)

  10. I always hated gloves when we lived in CO. So I just had frozen fingers. And a frozen chin. How do you cover up a chin? Scarf? I wasn't very good at it.

    Downsizing for DL is a need for certain.

  11. You found that wallet Erin had!! I need to look for one the next time I make a solo trip! That thing was seriously genius.
    And those gloves are amazing! Who knew gloves could be so versatile?!

  12. I love what you got! I've always wondered if the gloves work with the phone!
