we can still be friends

Dear Target,

I don't really know how to say this, so I'm just going to come out and say it. I think we need a break. It's not you, it's me. Ever since I started the Year of Frugal Living, I just haven't felt the same way about you. I mean, we have so many great memories, but lately I've just felt like you're sort of, well, a bad influence on me. It's like you bring out this wild side of me that I just don't think is a good thing. Maybe when things are different, we can see each other again. For right now, I'm just asking that you stop sending me those letters every Sunday- you know, the ones with the sexy pictures. I think we both know you're hot, you don't need to advertise it. Honestly, it just makes you look cheap.

Anyway, I promise I'll stop by to see you once in a while, for the kids' sake at least. Take care of yourself.

Jaime

agree, haven't been to target in a very long time and costco too for those same reasons - they are both in the $100 club. Can't go in without spending at least $100!

I had to stop grocery shopping at Super Target, because while I saved money on some items, I bought a ton of stuff that wasn't on the list (and isn't available at Jewel). This blog entry made me laugh so loud, Russ asked what was wrong with me...

You're hilarious... and awesome. :)

FYI. I nominated you for an award... please come by my blog and claim your spoils!

Thank you for your inspirational writing!

Very funny! I have it right, though. There is just something about Target...

Jamie, don't you know Target has this little obscure policy that you must spend $100 every time you enter the building? I've been slowly breaking off my relationship with Target as well...it's just too much! LOL
Love the frugal year!
