We love Target. It’s cheap like Walmart but clean, with happy and friendly employees (and customers), and fast checkouts. Sometimes they’re crazy, though. While they’re famous for their buying in bulk penalties, we discovered some odd instant substitutes recently:

So I guess if you wanted something like this:

Instead of getting one of the other, almost identical comforters, you should get this:

It looks like we have a few more years before these machines take over and we’re totally screwed. Oh wait.

In other news, here’s a collection of random pics from my recent travels:

(I wasn’t moving when I took that, but she was while texting.) Don’t text and drive, kids. It can wait.

I’m not sure that listing three things it cleans is enough to really call it “Triple ACTION”. If that’s all it takes, I’m totally coming out with Quadruple ACTION soap. It cleans hands, dishes, sinks, and makes your sponge stinky.

Another example of crazy target pricing (200 gels is cheaper than 110 gels):

I love funny posts. Keep em coming :)

Also, I’m surprised there was no dirty joke in there about the alcohol infused whipped cream. A little disappointed, even.
