I need a huge favor. My Target was out of the clearanced crayons and my group REALLLLLLY wants some for prizes at our community children's event on the 7th. Would anyone be willing to go stalk their target and get me as many boxes of the RoseArt 24 ct as you can get? They SHOULD be either 8 cents a box or 3 cents a box depending on if your Target is marked to 75% off yet. I'll gladly pay you shipping (should be able to use a flat rate box) and for the crayons either in money order, stamps, paypal or any combination of them!

If I'd been able to get a bunch I would have sent them to you but there was a lady who had a CART FULL of these last night so the target near work was pretty cleared out. I was only able to get 2 boxes to keep at my house for when kids come over.

Our Target had already been thoroughly picked over. Just a few boxes of markers left.

I was "that lady" at Target yesterday. I had six packs of the goodnites that were on clearance for 4.98. I should have just grabbed the other two packs, but didn't. *sigh*

a little while later, while I'm snagging all the cheapie clearance clothes, this lady looks me square in the eye and says, "that's why there was only two packs of goodnites over there. She's got a cart full of them."

I was just thinking, "and if they weren't all in my cart, they'd be in yours! You snooze you lose, _____!!"

anyway... one thing to think it... but this lady looked at me right in the eye as she said it! The nerve... if she wanted them that badly, she should have gotten them earlier.

Trina - I think we're already cleaned out, too, but I'll look when I go Fri or Sat and get whatever I can find for you.

Kim - I can't believe she was bold enough to say that to you!! Glad you didn't let it bother you too much. Like you said, if they weren't in your cart they'd have been in hers. Good thing you're a better shopper.

Oh I wasn't hating on the lady. I'm all about taking full advantage of a sale. I just thought it was a little funny that she had like 200 boxes of crayons. She was the one who dug out and handed me the 2 I have. I just won't be able to get more for Trina because they are all gone now.

Boo, on the lady at Target. You're totally right. She would have grabbed them up if you hadn't gotten there first.

If I get diaper coupons that should be coming in the mail I'll definately look when I'm up there for you (I have to plan my target trips out like crazy since ours is kinda far away..... lol) But I was planning on going up there one day this week, and it might be today, and If they have them I'll see what I can get!

I had checked mine two days ago actually. All they had left were the spiral notebooks. I hate missing out on good deals like that. Ughh! Sorry!

Thanks for looking girls .... I'm kicking myself for not buying them out at 8 cents a box. Oh well
