[$10 at Target] April.

Monday, April 17, 2017

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!

Per the usual, I went in to this month's shopping trip not knowing what I wanted to buy. I actually bought these things on two separate trips because I happened to stumble upon the straws on one trip when I didn't have enough time to look around for other items, but happened to see them sitting in the clearance section calling my name.

First up, the paper straws that I mentioned above. I love fun paper straws, but hate spending tons of money on them since you don't get very many and are purely paying for the pretty factor, so when I saw these sitting in the clearance section, I knew I had to scoop them up for my $10 trip.

A week or so later, I was back at Target to shop for my $10 trip when I was racking my brain for what else to buy. I remembered that I had been wanting to try these coffee drinks and thought now would be the perfect time. I tried it this weekend and it was... ok. I couldn't decide if I liked it or not, but ultimately I felt like it was too sweet. I used to love these sweet drinks, but I've recently gotten away from them and now I guess they are too sweet for my liking.

And last but not least, some fun new Sharpie markers to use in my planner. I remember we had some of these at my old job and I loved writing with them, so I thought, why not?

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

Coffee: $2.89
Straws: $1.50
Sharpie's: $4.67
Minus RED Card discount : ($0.45)
Tax (7.75%) : $0.66

Total : $9.27

Under again!

Next month, we'll be sharing our hauls on Monday, May 15th. Mark your calendars, get your shopping on, and link up with us on the 15th and show us what you got!


  1. I love Sharpie pens! They are the best. You can't go wrong with those. And cute straws, yes!

  2. Yay for finding the pretty straws on clearance. The price that you payed is perfect for them!

  3. I can never get enough of some fun straws from target! Never! And new Sharpies.... nothing better!

  4. Great finds! The paper straws are so cute!

  5. I've wanted to try that cold brew coffee- I like sweet things so maybe I'll give it a try :) I've heard those Sharpie pens are supposed to be really good for planners! Always love getting new pens!

  6. I love these posts! Pretty straws for the win!

  7. A few more popped off the tens? Just noticed the line up at the bottom. I almost did a ten this month! I thought about it, then lost motivation. I did more like a 50 at target for Easter though...Must remind myself not to buy all the things.

  8. I need to try that coffee. I've been making my own at home and this could be a fun way to try something new that doesn't cost a million dollar (you know, like the Bucks).

  9. Califa brand makes pretty good chocolate milk! I say its probably healthier to stay away from sugar drinks anyway. You just reminded me I have some gold starred paper straws in a drawer just waiting to be used ;)

  10. There are so many iced coffee drinks out right now! I love iced coffee in the summer, so I'm going to be so tempted to buy instead of make at home. Good to know that this one was on the sweet side.

  11. Those straws were a good find! I hate how pricy those things are for what they do and how long they're used (like, 5 seconds).
    I need my coffee drinks to be full of coffee with a side of sweet.

  12. Hmmm, I may have to try those Sharpie pens. Do they bled through? That would be my only thought...

  13. Way to stay under budget! I am always curious about cold coffee drinks. I like sweet coffee, so I think I may give them a try. And I love the Sharpie pens!

  14. Too bad you didn't love the coffee, it sure looks good!
