And I don’t say that because of the whole credit fraud mess. No. Target.com is most dangerous to me because everything is so damn cute and I want it all. If it wasn’t for the actual store here in Hawaii being so much more expensive than the online store, I’d probably have a problem every time I went in there. Lucky for me, I was able to score some fantastic deals over the weekend.
It all started two weeks ago. Target.com had dresses for BOGO 50% off. Score! I loaded up my cart, but for some reason I never checked out. Fast forward to Saturday. Since Target’s online sales start on Sunday, I knew I had to check out that evening in order to get the deal on my dresses. That night we got caught up doing something and unfortunately, didn’t make it back to the computer where my shopping cart was saved to check out on time. Bummer.
The new sale for the week wasn’t anything that interested me, so my dresses just sat in the cart in hopes of there being a repeat sale further down the line. I had no idea that I wouldn’t really have to wait that long.
Since Hawaii is way behind the rest of the world, timezone wise, it’s still Saturday here while it’s Sunday just about everywhere else it the world. So, this past Saturday, I went to visit my favorite retailer’s website like I do every Saturday night to scope out the new sale. To my surprise, clothing and accessories for the entire family were BOGO 50%. Not only could I buy my dresses now, but I ordered a few other items as well, along with a few little things for the girls.
In an attempt to be the ultimate cheap-o, I broke my order up into four separate orders. It would make no sense to order one item at $30 and another at $10, and only have 50% taken off of the $10. What I did was split all the items into orders according to their price. All the stuff that was around $30 per item went on one order, all the stuff that was around $20 per item went on another order, etc.. In addition to that, I got 5% off with my REDcard. If you don’t have one and you shop at Target you MUST get one NOW. And with the REDcard, I actually got free shipping to Hawaii (that doesn’t happen very often)!
Now I’m just anxiously awaiting the delivery of my fun new clothes. The image above shows a good chunk of what I ordered. I went all sorts of crazy with bright colors, since it feels like my closet has become a sea of orange and blue (Go Gators!). I also tried to keep everything new mom and breastfeeding-friendly since that will be my life for a while.
I don’t normally do a ton of online shopping, so if you’d like to follow a mom that does and is constantly sharing her top outfit picks for herself and her kiddos, make sure you go pay Kelsey from Pardon My French a visit.
