Targeting my cravings for March

I love Target. I really do. As a frugal shopper I have scored awesome deals at my local Tar-jay, and as I look forward to March, here are three items from my Target wish list:

The Twilight Saga: New Moon 3 Disc Edition plus collectible film cell - 26.99

Come on. How could you not? I thought the 2-disc special edition was the end-all, be-all of special editions, only to find out that Target is having an exclusive THREE-DISC edition with movie cell. Just the fact that Catherine Hardwicke did NOT direct this is enough to jump for joy at the thought of owning this. Yeah, I own Twilight but I think the universe agrees Cathy just up and butchered the damn thing. She should be disbarred from the directors union for what she did to that poor movie. Anyway, yes I will be getting this because I may be 38 and married with two children, but Robert Pattinson is the epitome of my skinny, weird-looking Brit fetish.

Iron Fruit Basket - 29.99

Holy crap, I so want this. It is the antithesis of frugal, since there are many fruit baskets for half that price that will do the same job, but my kitchen/dining area has lots of scrolly iron accents and this would fit perfectly. This is one of those times where I have to weigh the resentment of staring at a plain steel fruit basket for the rest of my life against the pang of guilt at spending thirty buckaroos on a beautiful, scrolly iron fruit basket. I'll get back to you on that one.

Bath Rug in Aqua
- 24.99

Okay, let me tell you about this rug and how it would be awesome for my bathrooms. First, it would go in either bathroom without being horribly clashy like my deep magenta bath set in the newly painted pumpkin yellow house bathroom. I decided on a beautiful and cozy yellow for our house bath (as opposed to the master bedroom bath) and while I love how it turned out, it clashes with the magenta rug set and it completely overpowers the pale green rug set. Right now, the only rug set that works is the tan set, but with turquoise being THE color of 2010 and us entering into spring pretty soon, I figure this gorgeous rug can hold its own against the yellow walls AND shake off the doldrums of winter.

There you have it, what's on my non-clothing list for March. I'm making a deal with myself which involves a bunch of pounds and whether I lose them or not.

What's on YOUR Target list?


  1. Love that aqua bath rug!!

    This is pretty much what I really really want at Target these days. I think I'll order one of them when I get home from vacation and if it's awesome, get another one. Yay!!

  2. I likey! We need new night tables. Hmmm . . .
