Hi My Name is Katherine

I don't know about you, but I can literally go to Target once a week and easily kill an hour looking around.

It started when I was in high school. I was at first incensed that they were going to cut down a huge strip of forest by our high school to put in yet another strip mall. But goodness, I was quickly converted when what went into that mall, but a brand new Super Target. LOVE. I would find myself there after school on a free weeknight, or heading there on a Saturday, just to shop around and see what was new.

Last month, I mentioned that I interned with Target during college. I was out on the floors five days a week, helping manage the store. A normal person would have their fill of Target in that time, right? Wrong. I literally (no joke) often found myself heading to another Target store on my days off.

Yes, I am weird. But I found that if you go often enough, you can grab the sales when they hit the shelves, before they sell out! It's a very bad addiction. I try and let myself only buy truly needed things, with some random splurges here and there. The back endcaps in Target stores are golden, because that is where they randomly throw all of the deeply discounted items. It's just something about those red sale tags that gets me.

I can also spend some time in Kohl's here and there. This weekend, I was glad I stopped in because the whole store was covered in those little red sale tags. I got to walk away with this fantabulous Simply Vera by Vera Wang necklace!

It was 80% OFF the original price of $42, putting it at a much-more-affordable $8.40!! I decided that would be my one purchase item of the day.

Oh and these too. While not $8, these Simply Vera aviators were also on sale. Adorably chic. How could I say no?

God, I have a problem. Hello, my name is Katherine, and I am a sale-aholic.

What is your shopping store weakness? Or am I alone here? :)
