Happy Monday!  I’m in denial that we are already half way through January.  Wasn’t Christmas just last week…?  Either way, I’m trying to enjoy the last few weeks before baby #3 joins the party.  I headed over to Target this last weekend (kid-free!) and joined the throngs of women wandering walking with purpose through the aisles.  (Who am I kidding?  I spent 2 hours just browsing through different departments.)  If you were with me last year, you know that once I month I go to Target with the goal to spend just $10 and see what I can get, so let me show you!

I’ll be honest and tell you that this month I didn’t do much digging for great deals or obscure finds.  I wasn’t looking for anything in particular so of course I beelined it for the dollar spot the minute I walked through the door to find some of the things I never knew I needed. *wink*  With Valentine’s Day coming up next month, the majority of what they had out was pink, red and white with hearts all over.  I have enough Valentine’s decor for the time being so I looked around for other items.  I’ll start with my favorite one I found: shrinky dinks.

Who did these when they were a kid?  Maybe it’s just one of those nostalgic activities like spirographs or the Easy Bake Oven, but I thought my kids would think these were so much fun!  My plan is to pull them out in February when it’s a little closer to Valentine’s Day.  For $3, it comes with a decent number of shrinky dinks plus some markers and string.

The next thing I found were packs of pencils with cute designs on them.  Perfect for Valentine’s for my daughter’s classroom with a few to spare.  I’m thinking I might do something simple like, “You’re so sharp, Valentine!” or something equally cheesy.  *wink*

Every year I tell myself that I’m going to plan a fun Valentine’s dinner for my family, like some of the ones I shared in my ultimate Valentine’s Day round up last year.  But part of what makes it fun is having items specifically used for these little celebrations.  So when I saw this set of four flower plates for $3, I grabbed them up.

And last, but not least, I threw a Snickers bar into my cart before checking out.  Snickers are my favorite candy bar and it was less than a dollar, which means I came in just over $10 including tax.  Not bad right?  I’m pretty happy with my purchases and know my kids will be excited about them too!

Like I said above, each month I go to Target and see what I can make it out of the store with for just $10!  It’s a fun challenge and I’ve got a fun group of ladies who join me and share their finds as well.  You can check them out below and then tell me: do you think you can make it out of Target spending $10 or less?  I’d love to see what you buy!
