Who knew I was so generous?
I don't know about you, but I cannot leave Target without spending (at least) one C-note. I always wonder if i actually need everything in my cart and boy am I good at finding reasons for that need (let me know if you ever need a little help with that). I feel sorry for the poor suckers that work there, faced with all those things they need-they must never even bring home a paycheck. How can you walk into a store that carries everything from milk to bras to christmas tress and not find several things that you have to have? Everyone needs a new running bra every now and then...well maybe not the Big Guy or his buddies, but I am not even sure the Big Guy knows that the big red bulls eye is anything other than a one colored dart board. But here is what is really important to know***Target donates 3 million (yup, million) dollars back to our communities EVERY WEEK. That is $4.95 per second boys and girls. So while the economy might be bad and finances a little tight at my house I can now rest easy at night knowing that the money I spend on the items I need is going to a good cause. I am feeling kind of generous today...I think I'll run to Target.
