My boys and I were chillin’ at a Playland McDonald’s this morning when I received word from Queen Bee Coupons that Target had possibly clearanced their Lego Mini Figures to $1.19. Always up for an adventure (or maybe I temporarily lost my sanity), I piled the boys in the mini in search of some Lego toys.
This is where the story gets funny because I have thus far successfully banned regular sized Legos from my home. We only have Duplos. I have seen what those things do to the rest of y’all’s homes and I want no part in it. Small pieces in every crack and crevice. Wedged between the stove and the kitchen cabinets. Hiding in the shag of the carpet. Under my feet where ever I go. Never, mind you, in the Lego container.
Instead, I’ve decided they will live in my birthday party box and will be given to my friend’s children while I secretly chuckle my sweet revenge for the times they have given my children toys with batteries…
I found plenty of the Lego Mini Figures, but here’s the catch: They are in the checkout aisles and are currently tagged at $3.99. The Toy Story 3 figures are not clearanced, only the regular Lego ones, like these:
Lego Mini Figures clearanced to $1.19
I was hoping to find some non-warrior type of figures for our Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes, but the Clackamas Target only had the ones pictured above. Queen Bee found the helicopter ones in her Target, so your store may have a better selection.
I also swung by the toy department to find the Target Holiday Toy Sale coupon book. Again, success! There were tons left.
The books are filled with Target store coupons which can be stacked with a manufacturer’s coupon. They all expire November 23. I’ll list the specific coupons in another post.
I had to whirl around to the women’s clothing department in case there were some sweet clearance items (I just can’t stay away!). That’s when the trip started to explode. I knew it would, because it always does.
The baby, who is definitely not a baby anymore, decided he wanted out and in my arms. He let that desire be known to the entire clothing department. Because I’m a glutton for punishment, and because I was only yards away, I decided to press my luck and whip through the shoe department. And that’s when I found them.
You all realize that Target boots sell out in minutes and the stores can’t seem to carry a decent stock. Kate spent the better part of a week looking for a particular pair of boots in a size 8 to no avail. So, because I found not one, but two pairs of cuties, I stayed and tried on boots with a chunky two-year-old in my arms, crying and snotting all over the place, while my five-year-old sweetly unzipped and pulled them off for me. The four-year-old was rolling on the floor in the next aisle. I was indeed the picture of perfect parenting.
So, my sincere apologies to anyone shopping in the Clackamas, Oregon Target early this afternoon. There’s only so much a mama can do when there is cute footwear available.
Don’t you think it was worth it?
