My Readers’ Target Shopping Confessions
Last week, I wrote about how there’s voodoo at Target because you walk in for some toothpaste and come out with everything BUT. I had no clue so many folks would feel my pain like that. And the comments had me CACKLING. So I decided to post some of the confessions people left about their Target shopping trips. We are a family, like a giant tree, giving Target ALL its’ money. Getchu some of this so you know you’re not alone.
“Oh, I go in for personal products and leave with sweaters, lip gloss and some hair product or nail polish. It’s a problem my husband threatens to leave me (in the store while he waits in the car) over.” – Quanita
“Try working there. I’ve tried to quit Target for like 5 years. I’m STILL there. Working for merchandise because my direct deposit gets rerouted STRAIGHT back to them when I go buy sh*t I don’t e’em be needing. I even have duplicates of items because I get so excited when I see them I forget I have them at home. FML…” – Erika M.
“Go in for Tampons, come out with earrings, scarf, wallet, body sprays, bubble gum, chocolate covered pretzels, steering wheel cover cuz it’s got TweetyBird on it, I crock pot cuz it’s on sale and I never use crock pots, but this one is a must have, oh yeah new bathroom decor, which includes, shower curtain, soap dispenser, trash can, rugs. O.K. I’m done!” – Kim E.
“I went in to buy soap and toothpaste a few months ago. I came out with Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding, Mixed Chicks Leave In, a Laker shirt, a bicycle pump, that Archer Farms toffee popcorn, an “I Love Auntie” bib, and a bikini, even though my stomach hasn’t seen the light of day since my son was born in 2002! We are all sheep.” – Erin K.
“I went in one time looking for a book I needed, and walked out w/ sum lip gloss, sum underoos, and a summer sausage. o_O I can’t make this stuff up.” – Gloria M.
“Target got me just last week. I went for cat food, came out with a new phone, a costume, xbox accessories, 3 bottles of lotion, $200 poorer and still no dang cat food.” – Timika H.
“How did I go to Target only to buy tissue and paper towels to end up purchasing: 2 ottomans, new sheets, a duvet cover, pillows and some new towels? To only go back for more the next weekend to exchange the towels.” – JD
“Chile, I went to Target last week for some work clothes and left with 5 super soakers…shameful.” – Bri
“The Target struggle is R-E-A-L. I be runnin’ up in there free as a damn bird like I ain’t got no sense. Like, all I need is Clorox wipes, paper towels and mouthwash. Next thing I know I’m in the home department reconsidering everything I’ve got in my apartment and deciding right then and there I need to completely redecorate and I must buy the display ottoman I’m now perched on! I just…” – Aramide E
“I worked at Target for over a year. I won’t even act like 1/2 the money I earned didn’t go back into that store. And let’s not talk about how last August all the stores in the district threw everything on 70-80% off clearance. Yes I spent $300-400 in there that month….but I got 800-900 worth of stuff so…… (._. )” – Negretta S.
“I used to work there and hated it. Swore I would never go back. 2 weeks later I was in there dropping $250 on some towels, a sippy cup (mind you I didn’t have not nan child), and a bedset that didn’t fit any bed in my house but was on sale and pretty. 8 years later, I still shop there weekly. My theory is that they pump crack through the vents.” – Tracey
“Couple weeks ago, I went to get some toothpaste. Left with $80 in stuff that wasn’t toothpaste! Got home, took off my clothes, laid in my bed and realized I didn’t get the toothpaste. No worries though, I’ll be back tomorrow. Lol.” – Imperfect
“I went to Tarjay today for leave in conditioner… Came out with a scarf, some boots, Tide pods, and lotion lol” – C
“I went to Target to pick up the SheaMoisture body products. Oh just 1 thing… bought the ENTIRE LINE OF PRODUCTS. That joint was damn near $500. I kid you NOT. I got smell good for the rest of the century. Not to mention… they got the nerve to have “real designers” up in that piece. Yeah I needed that Missoni neck warmer and them Cynthia ROwley pants. *sigh*” – TheMochaPeach
“Went to Target to grab a few items. Messed around and took the kids. Have no idea what I spent $200 on. Then at checkout the cashier gives me a buy one drink get one drink free coupon from Starbucks. Hope those lattes will provide all the vitamins and minerals I need this week cuz I spent my damn lunch money for the week in that $200.” – KayKay37
“Yes I went in there today to use the restroom and left with 2 pair of jeans, 4 shirts and a pair of sweat pants for my daughter…” – PGirl Johnson
LMAO!!! Y’all are THE WORST! We should start a Target Anonymous Club to help each other stay out that store so we can have savings.
