{$10 Target Challenge}

Some of my blogger friends do a $10 to Target challenge each month! I haven't joined in a while because I can never keep my Target bill under $10 bucks. I tried really hard this month though, so I decided to join in. When doing these $10 challenges I never make it past the dollar section in the front. Especially around holidays! And right now they have the cutest Halloween, fall and Thanksgiving things. I could have went crazy, but I kept the challenge in mind. I guess I will just have to go back. Is that cheating?! ha! Here is what I bought...

paint your own skull - $1.00 // character Jar Kit - $3.00 // paint your own pumpkin - $1.00 // black and white Halloween socks - $1.00 // light-up Halloween baton - $1.00 // Gather banner - $3.00 // binder clips - $1.00

Total = $11.00 + .91 (tax) = $11.91, minus the target red card 5% = $11.31

Not too bad! I did buy a planner this trip, but I am not counting it in for the challenge. It was something I needed and not just wanted. (I can justify anything!) I originally bought the fun little Halloween things to do when we go camping in October for the Fall Fiesta at Jellystone. However, I am not sure I will be able to hold them back that long. That's one weekend before Halloween. I would want to display them in October and not just for one week. So, we'll probably do them sooner. 

If you had $10 to spend at Target what would you buy? Would you make it past the dollar section?

  1. Great choices!! Target's Dollar Spot is so awesome right now. I found so many great things when I was there. Love the crafts. Mason always does so great with those.

  3. I LOVE that Gather banner and character jars. I am going to have to check our local Target and see if they have those things. You got a lot of fun things for $10...or a little over! Great job!

  9. I can justify anything -- you and me both sister! I make so many Target impulse buys that justification is lost half the time. James just shakes his head at me.

  13. It is hard to make it past the dollar spot!! Unless the selection is totally picked over ha. Then I'm like now what...? But for the next few months it is totally golden. Love the paint skull and pumpkins, I did not see those are ours =(

  16. I like the paint your own pumpkin & skull - wish my Target would have had those, I would have snatched those up! I think that I'm gonna have to go back & see if they got them now. :)

  17. Maybe next go round I can join this challenge because it seems so fun! We just got a bigger dollar spot and I was loving it the other day. I wanted everything. Ours had the cutest fall pillows and family cookbooks that i'm kicking myself for not getting. They may still be there though so there's hope!

    I don't blame you for wanting to do those crafts with Mase! I'd want to display them for a while, too! I can't wait to see what he creates with them! I think you did a pretty great job with the challenge. You only went over by $1 and some change.

    PS-I have that planner in light pink and love it but i'm already comparing other planners for next year!
