I have a secret. It’s not a big secret, really, just involves love, loyalty and (in)fidelity. See, I love Target with all my heart. It’s not uncommon, after all they have such cool stuff and it’s cheap and it’s fun to browse and the clearance! Oh, the clearance *sigh*
Anyway, my secret is that I also have a deep, abiding love for Walgreens. For me, Walgreens came before Target. My relationship with Walgreens began when I was in college and they were the nearest pharmacy and things just, well, grew from there. Then I found Target and fell in love and I pledged my loyalty. But I never actually quit Walgreens. It’s close, it’s open 24 hours and it’s been there for me in ways that Target has not/can not.
When I’m in a funk, I can wander around Walgreens and not get completely lost like I can at Target. I can also walk out with a few fun little things without dropping $100. After delivering each of my children, Walgreens was my first outing. I didn’t have to walk too much or be far from home but I could still get out and wander a bit. So that’s my secret. I’m cheating on Target with Walgreens. This is what I found last week:
I have a thing for pens. For some it’s candles or stationary, scrapbooking supplies or makeup; for me it’s pens. So I picked these up and I’m very happy. Not only are they Sharpie markers but they are the fat, “chisel tip” ones which are really fun to color with! I use them to decorate file folders. Is that weird too?
THEN, there were these. My love for post-its and especially magnetic notepads rivals my love for pens. How CUTE IS THIS?
And my favorite find from this trip, this ADORABLE little pill case for my purse! I’ve been using an old mint tin for a while now but it’s not ideal and now I have one that will fit everything AND be adorable.
My sincerest apologies for the terrible photo-quality. Still no batteries for the real cameras. Guess that means a trip to Walgreens!
On to the giveaway. Here’s the deal. I would LOVE to put together a package of little things for someone because how much more fun can it get? Presents, shipping, GETTING presents…it’s ALL GOODNESS. So here’s the rules. If you want a care package containing gods-know-what from me you need to leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing to buy just for fun. I’ll use Random.org to choose the winner on Wednesday, February 9. Good luck!
