Before the viral TikTok Target challenge, we undertook a challenge of our own! Could we spend just $20 in the hallowed halls of our favorite store (Target, obviously)? It turns out the answer is YES
Target has everything one will ever need. You go for dog food and you leave with $30 worth of trinkets from the Dollar Spot, a new pair of sandals, some workout pants, a book, a birthday gift, card and wrapping paper, shampoo, and a bag of M&M’s. But try going with a very limited budget and the permission to buy anything you want.
What is the Target challenge?
There are several versions of this challenge on TikTok, born out of COVID quarantine boredom. After all, when nothing is open, at least Target comes through! The first version involves couples walking down the aisles with one of them swinging their arms until the other partner says STOP. They then have to buy whatever they’re pointing to.
The second version of the TikTok Target challenge sends couples into Target with a list of items to find. You can make up your own list, but we like the following items!
Target Challenge List
1. Something in your favorite color
2. Something to drink
3. A fun snack
4. Something we need
5. Something you want
6. A surprise!
7. Something that reminds you of your partner
Dollar Spot Challenge at Target
We couldn’t resist a second Target Challenge, so this time we gave ourselves $15 and we had to stick to the Dollar Spot! Fortunately, we were just in time for fall and Halloween decor and I think we scored!
