The Target Trip

January 28th, 2022 at 10:55 pm

I went to Target yesterday to use my gift card. I ended up spending about $9 above the $25. I was aware I was over, and could have put some groceries back, but I wanted everything I bought.  So this is what $34 bought -- coffee, creamer, bread, cheese, sausage, raspberries, blueberries, and crackers. That's it!

Variables are now at 48%.

We got socked with snow today -- nine inches. I had to sweep off my car, so I could move it to the opposite side of the street in preparation for plowing tomorrow. The worst part was finding a new place to park, because the snow was so deep, every open space looked like a trap. I finally parked way down in the next block, where the snow didn't look quite as deep, but I have no idea if I'll be able to drive out of my spot tomorrow -- when I have to move the car to the other side of the street. How I wish I had a garage. Oh well. Winter won't last forever. It sounds like the east coast is going to get a whopper of a storm, and I commiserate.

    Food has skyrocketed, it’s crazy. For 18 eggs I paid over $5
    Regarding your car, I hope things will be okay tomorrow

    Food costs definitely have been rising.

    If you have a Dollar Tree near you, check them for eggs.

    Yes, food has really gone up. I think you did really well even if you did go over a little bit.

    I'm with you as far as feeling sympathy for the east coast. It sound wretched. We didn't receive as much snow as you did last week, but they are still debating on whether we will get a lot this coming week. I hope we don't.
