Target and the Basic Mom Trap

So I roll up to Target in my totally basic mom SUV, after visiting the Starbucks drive-thru, because that's what basics do. And I am immediately greeted by the bright colors and shiny newness. Every time I go into this place, I swear it's like they just know. They know what I am doing, how I'm feeling, and what I'm thinking about; and they lay all of their cute stuff out there accordingly. Target's ultimate goal is to prey on the basic moms whose minds are already moving a million miles an hour (either because they're hyped up on caffeine from their Starbucks or because they're trying to restrain their children). We are the ones that are going to casually fill up our buggies with all the things-- because that's cute, or this seems like a good idea, so we definitely need one of those. They set us up for failure (i.e. spending an extra $10-50) even before we start shopping for what we came there to buy. I'm cool with it, even if my husband generally is not.
