NOTE FROM COLLIN: Similar to how we do our Try Me Tuesday posts with product recommendations, I thought it would be also fun to do basically the complete opposite. With that said, I introduce “Waste of Money Wednesday!” 😂 This post will be exactly that – the Hip2Save team will be sharing products that they aren’t happy with, products they feel are a waste of money – basically product UN-recommendations.
Hi there! It’s Michelle – one of the Hip2Save Sidekicks!
I have a little tradition I’ve started. It goes like this:
Enter Target, head straight for Target Dollar Spot, put a bunch of useless items in my cart and then happily do my real shopping.
You can likely relate if you’ve been a victim of the Target Dollar Spot. And by victim I mean totally willing shopper who fills up her cart with all of those lovely $1 to $3 items. 😳
The one thing I cannot resist is their magnetic note pads. I have dreams of a little notepad that stays on my fridge so I can update my shopping list as we run out of things.
I keep buying these magnetic shopping lists and they keep breaking within the first week. Somehow the pages get bumped and the whole thing falls apart. Of course I’ll still buy one every time I go into the store because they are always so dang cute, but they just don’t hold up very well.
If I’m being honest my weakness is more than just the magnetic notepads. It’s actually ALL of the stationery items. I try and resist, but the prettiest pencils and the cutest notepads are always waiting for me. And I need it all. 😬
As I was writing this post I went to pull a “few things” I’d bought out of a drawer, and whoops – those few things are actually a lot of things. Most of them are still in the package.
And you’d think that would deter me, however here are a few things I picked up yesterday! So although I get frustrated when my magnetic list pads fall apart, it’s just $1 I’ve wasted and the joy I get from just putting the items in my cart and pushing them around the store is well worth the wasted money. 😉
Did you know that you can now shop for some of these items online too?! This is SO not good.
