It happened to me. I went to Target over the weekend to make a return on one of those fancy eco-friendly light bulbs... and walked out of there having dropped another $77. Yes, you read that correctly. I went in to make a RETURN. That means I was going to return something and get money back - - walk out of there with cash in hand... BUT I went in, made the return and in turn donated another $77 to the cause.
I am still trying to wrap my brain around Target's marketing scheme and how they manage to suck each of us in. I mean, I know I'm not alone in having these struggles. Target is like this magical place where anything and everything you want, need, and just gotta have exists under one roof.
Yes, I went in to return a light bulb... but dammit, I'd been dying to make some peanut butter cookies and I totally needed to grab those peanut butter candies... and why yes... I did need a random bottle of red wine, and some new lace thongs... and shit, while I was at it, I grabbed some tooth paste, an air freshener... and well, the list goes on and on! Oh, Target... you little temptress...
So, when's the last time Target got you for your coins?
