I visited Target a couple of weeks ago with this challenge in mind. Of course, the first place I stopped was the Dollar Spot. My thought was to pick up some things for summer since it's finally starting to warm up here (although it's supposed to rain this week...). The way that I usually shop is to pick up things that I'm interested in and then look at what I have and see what I'm most interested in and then narrow it down. Does anyone else do this?
I finally settled on these items: a baseball hat with a darling floral pattern on it for my daughter, three chalk paint squirt bottles, a package of cute, pink paper straws and a couple of glass jars with lids and plastic straws. The total on my receipt was $10.69 with tax. (The items I didn't get: another package of teal paper straws, a lightweight spring scarf and hair tie bracelets.)
My daughter wanted to pull out the hat and wear it as soon as we got into the car and she's worn it a few times since then. It's so dang cute on her!
As for the chalk paint squirt bottles, we've been saving those for a nice hot day when I can let the kids play and then let them run through the sprinklers in the backyard. These would also be fun to do an art project using some inexpensive canvas and letting the kids squirt the chalk paint onto it.
The glass jars and paper straws were just really fun. I am thinking I'll probably use them for summer drinks and they will make for some great photo props, so keep an eye out in the next couple of months! *wink*
Like I mentioned above, I am a co-host for the $10 at Target challenge and link up party. If you'd like to join us, we post the third Monday of each month. I'd love to see what you find at Target! You can also check out what each of the other hosts bought with their $10!
