I did a bad, bad thing at Target this weekend and for once, it has nothing to do with the amount of the bill on the way out.
In this week's ad, Target has cartons of Edy's ice cream on sale for $2.99. They're usually about $5.00 at my grocery store. Score - great deal on something I buy
all the freakin' time. But even better (worse?), if you buy five (FIVE!) cartons of ice cream, you get a $5 Target gift card.
Knowing all this, the rational thing to do would have been to avoid the ice cream aisle altogether or, at worst, buy one carton of ice cream.
What did I do? I bought five cartons of ice cream. Of course.
Does it help at all that they are all light ice cream and that I gave one to my sister? No? Yeah, I didn't think it would...
