I came downstairs Monday morning and my 6 year old asked if we could go to Target. What?!? Usually I have to drag him to the store. It took me a minute to remember that he had $3 burning a hole in his pocket.
Well, Kaden is home from school this week, so the 3 of us headed to Target today. This trip to Target was not one to write home about. We spent WAY to long in the toy section. It was a good money lesson for him, learning what $3 buys you and doesn’t buy you.
We then wandered through the store to grab the things on my “list” (the list that I left in the car). Finally I got to checkout with all my coupons in order and realized I forgot my wallet. We left the cart at Target and headed to our bank to get cash…back to the store and finally home.
While getting the groceries out of the car, I dropped the bag with 2 glass jars of Smucker’s caramel. Cement and glass = caramel sauce everywhere.
So if you’ve had shopping trips like this…you are not alone. It happens.
