Letter to Target

Dear Target,
I have a bone to pick with you. I'll just come right out and say it, you're hurting my bank account. You see, you have all of the necessities at such great prices but you entice me to go through all the unnecessary sections as soon as I step foot in the store. Today, I went I to get some fabric softener but as soon as I walked in the door, a purse caught my eye. It beckoned me over and told me that I could not leave the store without it. It would be lonely without me, besides it was on clearance. Then, it jumped into my cart. How could I tell it to get out? That would just be rude!
I determined to make a bee line for the fabric softener aisle, but on my way, noticed all the cute little girl clothing. Before I knew it I was in the toddler section and the cutest little dress made its way into my cart. This too was on sale and begged me to purchase it. Now, since Fall is here, Maia could not wear the dress without leggings, it is just too cold and since the leggings were only $3.77, it really would not be that big of a deal. I added them to the cart.
My shopping trip continued at this rate and I ended up spending over $75.00 on things that are super cute but unnecessary and really not in my budget. I would really appreciate if you could somehow make it possible to only purchase the necessities such as detergent, toothpaste, face wash, cleaning supplies, and diapers. My husband's suggestion is to add a second story and put all the unnecessary items upstairs under lock and key with a guard in front of the gate who requires a signed permission note from my husband to let me in. My husband would be ever so grateful.
