Recently, well about 4 months or so ago, they opened a new Target store near where I work. There is another one just as close in the opposite direction, but the new Target totally kicks the old Target’s butt. My first experience in that store was when I was doing my Christmas shopping. I had a list of things I wanted to get Zach for Christmas and in less than an hour I found every single thing on that list.
Normally, I tend to be more of a Wal-Mart girl because I usually find that things are a bit cheaper there, but I may have been officially converted today. I needed to pick up some formula for Zach and since I had a $10 off coupon for the formula, I figured it didn’t really matter where I bought it. But, as I looked down the formula aisle, I saw something interesting. Target has a store-brand formula that is HALF the price of the name brand I usually buy. And guess what? If you check out the ingredients and nutritional information on the back, they are almost exactly the same. Close enough anyway that I will chance it to spend half the money I have been spending to keep the boy in formula. My checkbook has seriously been hurting since I stopped breastfeeding.
Not only did I find the cheaper formula, I was also shopping for some Easter goodies for Zach. Guess what? They had E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. that was on my list once again. I should also mention that I looked for these same things at Wal-Mart just last week and couldn’t find them. I also got Zach a very cute little man looking outfit for Easter Sunday. It was a little bit pricier that what I really wanted to pay, but not enough to make me put it back.
