Target Brand Formula? Have you used it?

Department: Guinea pig

I was shopping today and noticed that the Target-brand equivalent to my baby's $24 container of formula cost just shy of $11. Half price? Are they kidding? Why have I not tried this before? Probably because I'm a little wary of "switching up" formula on my kid at this stage of the game. But my husband got laid off three weeks ago and he got a severance package, but we're still trying to cut back, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

I have almost a full container of the name brand formula left, so I won't open this new one until sometime next week. Has anyone tried it? What did you think? Was it the same product for half the freakin' price? Cuz if it is, I'm all over it for the next three+ months!!

Any help is appreciated!

Big Style, Small Price

Department: Why shop anywhere else?

I just got this purse at Target for a mere $24.99. It is really well made and as you can see has a ton of character. The color is called Paprika, which I love, and it's just the kind of not-your-average-run-of-the-mill kind of purse I like to carry. Plus it's big enough to let me carry around stuff for my husband and both of my kids without looking like I'm toting luggage.

Out of curiousity, I went to Bluefly to see how it really ranks on the style-o-meter. And, I'm telling you, I'm even happier with my purchase. Go ahead.. check it out for yourself. Go to Bluefly and search "satchel." Same style, for literally a fraction of the cost!

I bow down before thee! This. Right here. Is why we are all Slaves to Target!!
