Welcome to the Knorr Report- my little weekly report of my adventures at Target! 🙂
SO LONG OLD PAL…
I know many of you have never had a Garden center in your Target, or it has closed up long ago, but mine has survived the years, and it has been like an old, familiar friend. Each week I would push my cart through the automatic doors and make a once-around my Garden Center. And now, as of September 30th it will be closed, and any other remaining Target Garden Centers will likely be closing on this date or soon after too. As I pushed my cart around this week, it made me sad to know it would be the very last time, and it was a little depressing to see just a few remnants of what it once was. One lone Palm tree, a few torches and clearanced bug spray bottles, and not much else.
It was barren and desolate but still brought back many memories of all the hopeful plants and flowers I carted home, just to perish weeks later. No more Christmas trees, no more bargain outdoor finds, no more browsing in the sunlight. Although I will miss my Target Garden Center, there is the Home Depot, chock-full of more plants and flowers for me to take home and try not to kill. As I pushed my cart back out through the doors for the very last time, I caught sight of a single Strawberry Plant kit, clearanced for $1.38, and put it in my cart. Maybe I am just a sentimental mush, but I am also a very persistent gal and an optimist. And maybe, just maybe, I can get this very last purchase from the Target Garden Center to survive and be my souvenir. 😉

OTHER OBSERVATIONS THIS WEEK
So I nearly fainted when I saw the newly highered price of the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower cleaner of $17.69, but then realized this is the price for the new dual sprayer model, but I also believe it is the end of the old model, so no more $12.99. 🙁 I also noticed that my store got in bonus size bottles of LA Looks but still being sold at the same price of $1.94. They are 30 oz bottles, and there are $1/1 LA Looks product in the 8-1-10 RP. But you may want to bide your time as the coupon is valid until x11/1 and these go on Price CUt quite often. I hope these huge bottles survive on the shelf until that happens.
That wraps it up for this week folks. I will try & get a clearance post up later today!
