I would be lying to you if I told you I didn’t love Target. Target and I are like BSFs. Best shopping friends. She totally gets me and knows what I want. When I hang out with her, I never leave disappointed. Let’s be honest though, Target has other BSFs. I’m not the only best shopping friend she has. In fact, she has at least 12. When I’m shopping at Target, I see many types of moms. Target is totally like a magnet for moms, we love it! I guarantee you’re bound to find any of these 12 types of moms at target!
The 12 Types of Moms You See at Target
1. Sweatpants mom.
The mom who was just running in to grab a few things. Instead, she sees everyone she doesn’t want to see! You know it happens to you too.
2. Mom with a dozen kids.
You know, the mom who has a dozen kids who want one of everything they see. Her kids are adorable and you count them as they walk by. Thanking everything holy that it’s not you with that many kids.
3. Diaper and wipes mom.
The mom you see grabbing every last package of diapers and wipes because she’s afraid she’ll run out.
4. “Got it all together” mom.
The mom who really doesn’t look like a mom, she looks more like a model who’s on lunch break shopping for her kids’ organic lunches for the week. O’ how I wish to be like you “got it all together mom!”
5. Hungry mom and baby.
I know you’ve seen this mom at Target. First, the moms hungry so she opens something to eat. And before she knows it there are like 10 things open in her cart and she hasn’t even paid yet. And somehow her baby literally wanted nothing of the products she’s opened. Typical baby for you.
6. Cellphone mom.
The mom who is on her cell phone literally all of the time. Somehow she manages to wrangle up her kids, talk on the phone, and shop at the same time. Blows my mind every time.
7. Savings app mom.
You’ve seen her and so have I. She has every savings app available on her phone and she’s always looking at her iPhone trying to see what item she can save on next.
8. Paper coupon mom.
You better believe that there is a mom right now walking around with her coupon binder bound and determined to get every deal she can. More power to you “coupon” mom.
9. Cartwheel app mom.
She basically scans everything she wants to purchase before she puts it in the cart. Go you, Cartwheel mom!
10. Starbucks mom.
I’m pretty sure this is nearly ever mom in Target. She’s got her $5 coffee in her hand, but you hope she saved a few bucks because there are at least 15 ways she could be saving on that coffee!
11. Stockpiling mom.
Yup, there’s always that mom that is stockpiling and basically wipes out the shelves. And you can’t hate because you wish you were as devoted as her.
12. And then there’s me. Target Twilight Zone Mom.
I go in for a shower curtain and leave with Christmas decorations, Easter decorations, a summer wardrobe for the whole family, snacks, shoes, diapers, wipes, and I actually end up forgetting the shower curtain!
Listen, I’m not making fun of any mom that shops at Target. Whether you’re wearing sweatpants or a Tiara, more power to you. I will be there, right alongside of you though. Together, we will come out of Target with money still in our pockets and with at least one thing on our original shopping list. BFFs for life!
What type of Target mom are you?
