ADDICTED TO TARGET? WE CAN HELP!

So are you a slave to Target? 

Do you have sleepless nights tossing and turning and wishing that Target was open at 2 am so you could just shop? And you have to wake up and touch wood 10 times and turn the lights on and off and on and off over and - oh wait, that's my crazy obsession.

But if you are like us - you may have a dangerous addiction to Target.  Step one is admitting that you have a problem.  We want you to know that you are not alone. There is even a medical diagnosis for this: TARGETOMANIA (trust me, I am a doctor - and no, I did not stay in a Holiday Inn last night).  

Actually - Wikipedia does have a medical term:
"Oniomania is a medical term (from Greek onios="for sale," mania=insanity) for the compulsive desire to shop.  

Ooh La La Mama is here for you! In support of all of our new followers who are helping us with our new blog - we are doing another giveaway today at 4pm! All you have to do is follow our blog and be entered to win a $50 gift card to Target.  Additional entries can easily be earned by commenting on our blog, tweeting about our blog on Twitter, Facebook, your blog.  If you blog about us we'll add that as an additional entry.   

So - thank you all and good luck! If you do not win today - please check back.  We'll be giving more stuff away almost weekly! 

Cindy

I walked into Target Saturday to pick up a few items and walked out with a Toyota Highlander FULL of stuff and a bank account screaming "You just spent over $300.00 in Target ... you CRAZY woman" ... Oh well ... my grandson had an awesome birthday party and my daughter's new baby has a lot of new stuff awaiting his arrival.
For added measure ... I HEART Target!

Abigail said...

I will go ahead and retweet it (I'm ipickuppennies on Twitter)

And I chose all three adjectives -- not just to suck up, though of course that's important too, but because you made me laugh about the Holiday Inn thing. So it's funny. Interesting because I learned the new word for sale-mania. And cool because... well... you're giving stuff away. What's cooler than that?!

milk and cookeez said...

I 2 am a Targetoholic, I just came home from getting my fix. How did you know, I am I that bad? I only spent 45$ this time, as compared to my 65$ average, and I only forgot dog food-so Ill go and get it tomorrow...
Did you see that the dollar section is loaded with great buys, i got some pink and green cleaning gloves for 1$ and cute nail files, I dont have a problem-really....
and the dogs have enough food for tonight.
Im breathing now...

Funny reading your blog post. I just got back from Target a few minutes ago and sitting here with a bag of their popcorn and diet Coke all for $1.61. I also picked up two pairs of sleep pants in the mens department for less than $5.00 a piece. Just love Target to death :)
