URGENT ALERT FOR ALL TARGET SHOPPERS

Okay... this has absolutely zip to do with fitness or your "tools", but it's totally useful. Your regular broadcast program has been interrupted to bring you this important emergency alert.

Attention all Target shoppers....

You know that little section right when you walk into all Targets that is filled with $1.00 items? You can find
totally rad little thingies that you have no need for, but they are so cheap you just buy a bunch? Well as if $1.00 for a really nice dog bowl, or a cookie recipe book weren't deal enough... TARGET HAS A 75% OFF SALE ON ALL $1.00 ITEMS. Now I'm no mathematician, but it didn't take me long to figure this one out. "A QUARTER?" I yelled to strangers walking by. Then it turned into a statement..."A QUARTER!!!"

Run... don't walk to Target..... today. This makes it even more URGENT that you trip to Target to pick up your "tools"! Tell your husband,..."I'm off to Target cuz that Turbo Jam guurrl is gonna save us some money honey!" If
you're at work and can't really leave... I'll write ya a note. It's almost worth a corrective action (or whatever they're calling them in corporate world these days.)

So, thinking ahead for my five year old, Cierra's birthday I bought her party favors...

10 black and pink satin purses - .25 cents each
10 Pink Pearl and black satin box necklaces - .25 cents each
10 Pink pearl head bands - .25 cents each
Total per set: .75 cents
Grand Total for 10 sets: $7.50

Okay and they had these bigger black satin purses with a tiny pink bow that are like 4 inches tall,
and maybe 9 inches long..kind of like a clutch. I bought a whole bunch of those too! I give my girlfriends
and employees gift certificates to the nail salon for manicures and pedicures and how much cuter would
they be to deliver them in these little purses. Heeellllooooowwww! It's a quarter...less than a greeting card,
less than a stamp, less than a 1/16th of a cup of coffee

There were dog bowls, and cat collars and costume jewelry and cd cases (to hold your Turbo Jam
DVD's) and recipe books, and, and..and...

P.S. If you live near the Mission Viejo Target, you should consider another location. I cleaned that one out and
I plan to hit a few more in the greater Orange County area. Big Lots - Shmig Lots.

Marthas of the world unite!

HOT DIGGITY!!! Good thing NONE of us shop at the same Target 'cause I have a feeling I am going to find uses for everything that's a quarter!! :D Oh happy day!!!

Love the idea of having the purses as party favors. My daughters birthday is January 18 and I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a cute idea! I'm totally copy catting you!!

Thanks for the heads up :D

Hello!! Thanks Chalene for the info. I haven't even taken my lunch break and this is a great deal!!

I have three target within two miles of where I live so if one target is sold out I have two others to choose from! During the Summer when my son is out of school, no lie, we are there everyday just about! In fact, one of the cashier's go to know us on a first name basis.

BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT !!!

PS... I got my new Turbo Jam DVD's Today YEAAAAAAH ME !!!

*pouting* I so hate living in the boonies. Do ya'll know how long I would have to drive to even see a Target? Like 1.5 hours or some crap like that. And Target was one of my favorites when I used to live in the big city haha.

Because of this, I have decided it is time to start pressuring my loving husband into getting me the heck out of the corn fields and closer to civilization. My argument will consist solely on this statement alone:

"But honey, Chalene shops there" and if you can imagine that said in a very whiny voice, it should only take me a couple months before I'm packing up our stuff :D

Chalene, this was just another reason why you are so great. I mean, I can so relate to someone who loves shopping THIS much. Now, if you could please just write my husband a note and tell him that we need to live closer to actual stores, that would be great haha.

I will be thinking of you all as I deal with Customer Service at Wal-Mart today.

If they get snippy with me because I am returning the Dr. Scholl's shoes that hurt my left foot, I will tell them I am moving to Target areas to shop there! :D

I do have new ziplock containers on the list though from yesterday. :)

This is long overdue, but I feel the need to thank you Chalene. I got engaged last year and you could say that I probably needed to lose alot of weight. I really wanted to get healthy again so I bought the Turbo Jam DVD set. I did it religiously every day for nine months and I lost 30 pounds for my wedding. You have no idea how good I feel. After the wedding I decided to switch it up and try someone else's workout dvd's. Did it once and went back to the Cardio Party! From the bottom of my heart I can't thank you enough for motivating me every morning and getting me to where I am. I never thought I would ever have this high self esteem again. And I totally can see myself not dancing at my own wedding because of being to self-conscious but thank God I had you and I danced every song! THANK YOU!!!! Lindsay
