I love Target clearance in the fall, but I must admit that I spent a lot more than I had expected to today. This does not happen often, but today was definitely one of those days, where I went over budget. The clearance end caps were full of great clearance deals, and I even picked up a couple of gifts. I also found SodaStream on clearance at a very low price, and since my kids and I are trying out our new SodaStream this weekend, I wanted to pick up a couple of extra bottles.
Although I still made it within my grocery budget this week, this last trip to Target definitely made me go way over my calculated extra spendings for the week. This is why I am thankful that I am keeping closely track, because some weeks I don’t have any extra spendings at all, and when I even it out for the year the total still looks good.
