Target Essentials – What are Yours?
Hi Friends! How did your Sunday turn out? Hopefully you took it easy as I imagine most of us have to go back to work or school on Monday if you’ve had a long weekend or time off.
I didn’t take it easy.
I was running errands, went to Target, have been cooking, and getting things organized for the week.
And I worked out, too. Thankfully I did some yoga and core exercises inside and then went for a quick 20 minute run outside earlier today because the weather has gotten worse as the day has progressed and it’s raining now.
Today Skylar and I went to Target and stocked up on some essentials.
Toilet paper, Kleenex, and my Target now has groceries, too
I like Target brand light red kidney beans (which are lighter in color and thereby easier to camouflage than other beans I’ve tried) for Scott’s food because he’s not a huge bean fan. Or so he thinks. He has no idea all the beans he eats but doesn’t know.
I use them in things like Vegan Chili
And in the Spicy Vegetable Corn and Bean Soup I made earlier this week
I picked up some razor blades at Target, too. The best razor blades. Period. I’ll save money on beans but I won’t skimp on razors. 6 for $19.99 is robbery, but smoothness counts.
I’m a Carmex Addict. I have it in every room, purse, bag, and car.
I love Palmer’s Cocoa Butter lotion and have been using it for about 15 years. I have tried tons of other lotions. For the price, this stuff is impossible to beat for my skin.
From my earlier post today with a Product Review and what Good Things in 2011 have already happened for you, I am glad the year is off to a great start for most of you. If it’s already off on the wrong foot, that would….suck.
Dessert: Vegan GF Peanut Butter Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies with Peanut Flour
The perfect combo Peanut Butter + Chocolate, in cookie form.
1. Best thing you’ve ate or done this weekend?
I’ll shut up about my camera and picture-taking and leave you with these two self-portraits I just snapped. I am so happy about the camera! And it should be noted that I have ventured off totally auto settings and am using the P setting as well as Macro. I am proud of that!
Other best things were being productive and getting errands ran, groceries bought, and doing it with a smile and with a preschooler in tow in the rain.
2. Do you have work or school on Monday?
I am working, indeed.
3. Things you can’t live without from Target? (Or similar store for the non-US readers or non-Target shoppers)
Their 16.99 Champion Sports Bras as mentioned previously, are awesome. My opinion only, but I love them more than $40 Nike and Lulu sports bras.
I also try to buy all my paper products like toilet paper, Kleenex, paper towels, etc there.
My “soaps”: bar soap, pump soap for hands, dishwasher pellets, laundry detergent, body wash, shampoo & condition for the family.
All those items are so much cheaper than at the grocery or drug store, so when I know I need to replenish my supplies, I get them there.
Have a great first week in 2011, everyone!
