I can’t tell you exactly when my love affair with Target began, but what I can tell you is that I have become obsessed. Every day finding some excuse to go. We need this or ran out of that. It doesn’t help that the store of my heart’s desire is literally three minutes from my house! I could seriously walk there. That is how close there is. I honestly didn’t realize just how bad my addiction was until just a few days ago!
Deciding to figure out why our finances has been so poor lately I used a website to help show me where we spend our money and help us budget! The results were astounding! Shopping! Once you take away the groceries it’s all Target shopping. So Target I am sorry but we need to break up. I wrote you this letter because I know that we are both in need of closure right now!
It was love at first sight you and I. Once I locked my eyes on that red-eye of yours I knew that you were the one. Your awesome clothes and fashionable children’s clothing just made me want you even more. You had me at hello! When your prices increased I stayed thinking that this would be just a rough patch that we were going through. Every couple has their hard times right? When you gave me a red debit card to save five percent with each purchase I said yes please!
Alas, our time together has to end. You see I am incapable of going in to your lovely doors without spending less than 100 dollars. Your aisles are so spacious and strategically placed! How did you know I wanted these flannel sheets! I do not know how to stop at buying just what I need. So it’s only fair to make a clean break! We must do it now before anyone gets hurt. Mainly my checking account.
Somewhere along the line I had convinced myself that I could only get the items I need at your fine facilities, but this is simply not true. Wal-Mart has baby wipes and they have pull ups too! It may not be the nicest of places, and have some scary people there. But this is the precise reason that I do not spend too much money. I’m just too damn scared of the people who clearly haven’t showered and there was this one time that a possible drug deal was going down. I can’t be sure as I was afraid to stare too long. So you see, this is a much better option for me. I get in, get out and nobody gets hurt.
Shh…It’s not you it’s me. I just can’t stop so Please love me enough to let me go! I know, I know but even if you give me 30% off, I just can’t risk getting sucked back in. Please respect my decision. You will always hold a special place in my heart, but for now we say goodbye.
Your loyal Customer April
