I Really Should Get a Job.

This week I’ve been on a quest to find another Boney Barney. Remember I mentioned the one we have, and how effective he is at keeping the cats off the hood of my car? I wanted another one for the trunk of my car, and if I were lucky, I was hoping to find one for Tony’s car, too.

I’m here to report that I’ve been to every Target within a 15 mile radius (that would be one, two, three, four, five, six, SEVEN Targets), and none of them have a Boney Barney.

To console myself, I bought some cute (and I use the word “cute” in the context of scary, freaky or weird) Halloween clearance stuff (junk?) for pennies on the dollar. Stuff like next year’s Halloween costumes for the cats, a countdown sign, a t-shirt, cookie cutters and more, all at 75% off! My People, how can you go wrong with that?

Bonus, I bought all that stuff — several bags worth — for right around the $20 range!

But still, no Boney Barney. Extinction of his kind? A skeleton dog? Who knew?

Happy Friday to you!

    lol. I was at a Target today (Marketplace) and I actually looked to see if I could find one for you. hehe. I did find Mia’s costume for next year, though. For the low, low price of $5. Woot!

    I did pick up a bag of those chocolate covered candy corn. πŸ˜€ I need to try it … NOW. πŸ˜€

    • HA! I went to that Target. πŸ˜›

      I tried those candy corn too. I guess maybe I’m not a candy corn fan… do you want my two bags? (I know that sounds like a loaded question… hehe)

  2. grrrace

    I think the answer is YES. hehe ;P

    So I tried the candy corn and it was toffee flavored… I’m not a fan of the toffee flavored candy corn… What kind did you get? If you have plain candy corn I might want ’em. πŸ˜€ hehe.

    Hrm… can I try the green apple flavor? I have a feeling I won’t really like them, but I can’t pass up an opportunity to try a different flavor candy corn… hehe.

    YES! FOR FREE! Gosh, how did I forget to mention the most important part?! hehe…

    Thanks πŸ˜€

    Yay for lunch dates πŸ˜€

  6. My mom does stuff like that. She will drive to Target in Timbucktoo (sp??) to find something. It’s a quest.

    I think that makes you kind of like a knight or something….

  7. Have you checked eBay? Don’t they have everything?

    The Target by us actually has lots of good stuff cheap. I’m getting to like it more and more.

    • Ohhh, I checked eBay first thing! Although maybe I should set up an alert. Hmmm.

      I like Target, but I’m a price watcher… I won’t buy something there if I can get it across the street for cheaper. πŸ™‚

  8. Would something else work, like a Big Mouth Billy Bass? Check the local yardsales.

    • Sadly, I live in a city that, for the most part, doesn’t allow yard sales… :\ So I visit Thrift stores, but…

      One of the thrift stores I always used to go visit, I refuse to visit there anymore because their prices are the same as retail. It’s a Goodwill, for heaven’s sake, and they’re charge $60 for a dress? Pfft. That’s not thrifty.

    Seven Targets within 15 miles? I’m lucky to have one within 15!

    And happy Monday to you (and I can say that since it’s over for me but not quite for you). πŸ˜€

    • I figure the seven Targets within 15 miles of my home now makes up for all those years I lived a 30 minute drive, down a two lane highway, away from ANYTHING. Let me tell you, evaluating those years now based on who I came home to?? Sooooo NOT worth it.

      Psshaw, I don’t have Mondays… I’m unemployed. πŸ˜›
