my bulging basket

why do i do this?
i go to the store by myself, hip hip hurray!
i think, "carefree shopping, just pick up a few things, ooo, i only need a basket!"
then, i'm in the back of target with a bulging basket, and something in my arms.
i should have gotten the dang cart.
i heart target.
do you do this?
p.s. good news! i found the ":" on my phone. smiley faces are back:-)

I heart Target, too. Yes I do that. Or I try to carry everything with just my two hands. BTW, feeling better, so I'm sending wellness your way. : )

Oh yes, Target has this effect on people. I don't think I've ever made it through Target with just a basket. Is this a problem?

Oh Target is heaven on earth and a death trap for me all at the same time. I used to do that A LOT, but now I just know I can't limit it to a basket. Its pretty much my guilt pleasure. I actually went in the other day for just a few items and went out with just a few. It was amazing! My shower was nice! I loved your present--very helpful! I haven't shown Ryan yet. Janice made him a Daddy Diaper changing kit. I'll take a pic and post it. Its hilarious and so dang cute. She could sell it for money for sure! Its ADORABLE! He's never changed a diaper in his life. You are so sweet--thank you!

In answer to your question, "why do I do this?" I only have to say because there is something in all of us that makes us forget a budget when we walk into the doors of that fabulous store! I do it all the time! There is something strangely therapeutic about it...I am so glad you share the same problem as me:) I feel more normal and less impulsive now;)

I do it everywhere, i think i do it subconsciously to make sure i will be able to carry everything on the walk home ;)

I've never gone into a store with just one of those little arm baskets in my life! I know myself better than that... =)

Hey...at least you are bright enough to grab the basket...I usually get 10 minutes in, and too far away, and grumble all the way to the front with my arms full cause I do it all to often...sigh
