I love going to Target. I just love going. I think I’ve met a bunch of people with the same sentiment. But I’m almost obsessed. I get it from my mom for sure. She’s the type that would walk down every single aisle for no reason. It was almost therapeutic for her. And thanks to her, it’s therapeutic for me too.
You can do a lot of “fun stuff” at Target nowadays compared to when I was younger. I put “fun stuff” in quotes because I imagine that I’m lame and that other people wouldn’t find this fun lol! Your shopping experience is more…let’s say…interactive. I love opening the Target app and scanning items that I’m going to throw into my basket in case there’s a coupon. I. love. doing. that! When it makes that sound – the one where there is a coupon available – my eyes just light up! Lol! I know, I’m lame. But hey! It’s me.
So I haven’t been to Target in a while because I work so much and after a long day I just want to go home, rest as much as I can, and sleep until I have to do it all over again the next day. But on Monday, since things have been starting to normalize (whatever that means in entrepreneur world) Charlie and I had some energy and time so I asked him if we could go to Target and “pashall” (means to go on an outing in Filipino). So I got ready and got all dolled up for Target. Yes I did! No shame in my game lol! I came away with some pretty good finds.
I’ve been craving ice cream so Charlie and I got the Market Pantry Brand Cookies and Cream. I have to say it was legit! It’s about $1 less than the name brand stuff and it was really good! I also got a couple bags of Doritos since it was 2 for $6. I can’t believe how expensive chips are now!
We wanted a coffee grinder for home so we picked up a new coffee grinder so we can have fresh ground coffee beans when we’re at home. We got one very similar to this one.
Lately, I’ve been trying to make small adjustments to my daily routine to help me feel more confident. I’ve been trying to put on some BB cream in the morning, shape my eyebrows, and put on some mascara. Target is having a great deal right now – buy $20 worth of cosmetics and get a $5 Target gift card. I got myself more of Maybelline’s BB Fresh Cream (I’m the medium shade), their Mega Plush Volum’Express Mascara (cuz I have virtually no lashes), and Physicians Formula’s Brow Last Brow Gel. I also got some dry shampoo from Not Your Mother’s brand which I’ve heard great things about, can’t wait to try it. It quickly added up to $20 so I basically got it for $15. Sweet deal!
Last but not least I went and shopped for pens! I’m in the market for a black felt tip pen that doesn’t bleed. I originally went looking for the Paper Mate Marker pens – these are my go to! My ride or die pens. But since they didn’t have any all black markers in stock I decided to go with Sharpie’s new pen. Trying it out, let’s see if I like it. I usually like a thicker tip (this looks like it might be a 0.3) but we’ll give it a whirl!
All in all I think it was a good Target trip for sure. 🙂
