T is for...

Target. Now, here's a store I never in a million years imagined might someday turn into my #1 go-to retailer.

And I think I've used "go-to" at least once in the last three posts, this one included.

Oh, well.

This 1962 Minnesota native chain store is second only to Walmart as far as retail popularity and sales. But that's just a little bit of background for your brain. Here's why I love it. When Baby Jake was still cooking in the womb, I received numerous gift cards to Target. Obviously we've long since used up all our "free cash," but even now, 7 weeks into Jake's break into the big world, we still go to Target for our basic needs. That's almost everything with the exception of groceries. They have a wonderful selection, excellent customer service, and good quality products at a decent price. Yes, they're more expensive than Walmart, but I'd tackle a Target-crowd anyday over a Walmart one.

Don't even act like you don't know what I'm talking about.

If you've still got a kid in diapers, their Up & Up brand of booty-covers work great at a great price. Really, their brand of anything is good. Even food, though we buy that at our air force base commissary.

So, what's your favorite go-to (there it is again!) store?

I love Target. Our just opened last summer so it's still all shiny and new. I go there more than I should. And I will walk in needing two items and walk out with a hundred dollars worth of extra crap I didn't need.
