Hi everyone. Hope you are doing well. East coast people, hope Hurricane Irene have mercy on us all. I'm sitting here writing this post while the wind is gusting and the rain pouring outside my window. The irony is: Irene isn't even close to us yet. It's in New York coming up our way.
For those of you on twitter, you probably heard of the Boston blogger and reader meet up Friday night. I had a blast! I was able to meet in person some of my favorite bloggers - Jean, Sydney, Ping, and Khatu. Because of human error (I forgot the memory card for my camera), I don't have any pictures I can share with you guys, but I'm sure you'll be able to see some in their blogs soon.
One topic that came up during our meet up was the Target REDcard. I was surprised to find out that many people didn't really know what the REDcard can do for them. So I'd like to share with you. The REDcard is like any store credit card and it can only be used in Target stores or target.com. Best part is that when you use your REDcard to pay for your purchases, the total is automatically reduced by 5%, on every purchase. So it's not a rebate card, it's instant savings. I got one as soon as the program started a few months ago and carried the card with me in my wallet everyday. I get most of my household stuff and back to school items from Target, and occasionally I do get some clothes for the kids and shoes for myself. This instant no brainer, no effort savings is a must-have in my opinion. Who doesn't shop in Target right?Mossimo Khadeja Suede Bootie in Taupe. It's true to size, real suede, very comfortable, and reasonable in price $29.99. Target often runs a 20% off for over $75 online if you want to wait for even lower price.
A friend living in the same town just called and reported that they lost power. So I'm going to publish this post before our power is lost as well. Hope you all stay dry and safe.
Update: Some pictures my daughter took of me with the Target booties and Forever 21 Suede skirt.
