Dollar Spot @ Target & Dollar Tree

I get so excited every time I think about the Dollar Spot at Target and the Dollar Tree!  It's like there is some little treasure waiting to be found, waiting to be beautified!  The issue that I have with these 2 places is my obsessive compulsive desire to buy in multiples, especially Target because we don't have one in town, the nearest one is 40 minutes away.  Every time I find something that I love, even if I don't know what I can/will do with I have to buy them.  Notice the word them?  I can't just buy 1, I have to buy 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6!

A couple of days ago I went to Target and stocked up!
6 pots, 4 metal planter things and stamps.....$12!  And actually I did practice some self control, I had put 5 little green tea light lantern things in my basket.  We walked around the store and looked at everything and as we got closer to the check out I decided I did not have to have the lanterns I actually argued with myself, because it was only $5, which isn't a lot of money but I did not have to have them.

 So from now on I am going to practice some self control.  Did I really need 6 planters?  No, but the thought of finding something to do with them later and then going back and not being able to find them?!?!  I won't die, seriously Kenzie!!

And I had to share this picture, Tay is my little naked baby!  She loves to take her diaper off at nap time and bed time and pee on everything.  We originally used silver duck tape so she couldn't get her diaper off, but look what Grammie gave her for Easter!  Pink Duck Tape!  What little girl wouldn't love this?  We are off to Denver tomorrow for our weekend get away, so I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

ps.  To my husband, I dislike you at the moment (we went on an innocent walk at the River Walk and ended up running) and I don't run, I haven't worked out since Thanksgiving.  So needless to say I am sore :(

I love those pots. I might have to take a trip to Target sometime this week:) Hopefully they will still have them. I need to come up with some ideas for Teacher Appreciation week next month. And those might be great gifts:)Thanks for sharing your finds:)

My closest Target is 5 minutes away...I must keep myself out as much as possible!
You found some cute stuff on your shopping trip. Let us know what you do with the pots.

I just found your blog - lovin' it!

I am with you about Target and Dollar Tree!! I talked myself out of getting the planter boxes when they had them (and now I'm kicking myself). Although, I did load up on the little metal buckets the next time :)
