We have been waiting & waiting & waiting . . . . .

. . . . .for our Target Club Wed registry-complete 10% off coupon to come in the mail.

I have been calling Target every other week to see what the status is/was. The second time I called they said that someone had switched our wedding date (in their system) to August 30, so the system would generate the coupon 3 days prior to our wedding date. So we kept waiting. I called again yesterday & asked them if they could just email me a coupon. After speaking with two people, Target set it up that Jake & I could go into the Wilmington Target & do our registry-complete shop. The manager had to manually take 10% off of each registry item.

We haven’t had POTS & PANS!!! Luckily, I did move my double boiler, so I have been able to make meals with one sauce pan. I have been getting creative. We also have an electric griddle, crock-pot & a George Forman. Thank goodness! I purchased a wok a couple of weeks ago. I really wanted to make stir fry. I also used it for browning 3 pounds of beef. I had to ask a friend to borrow her stock pot to boil lasagna noodles. It’s been fun & a little adventuresome!

A week after we got here we decided to go to Bed Bath & Beyond to get a vacuum. I couldn’t wait any longer for that! We used a 20% off coupon.

SO we finally have pots & pans (WOOHOO!), our TV (after missing ALL of the Olympics), an extra set of sheets for the guest bedroom, and some other miscellaneous items. The nice thing about not getting the coupon immediately was that we figured out what we really still needed. We decided against a bunch of things due to space issues in our condo. Now I can’t wait to cook a meal with more than one sauce pan!

Here is Jake’s Jeep a little full after Target. The BEST thing was that we had a LOT of money in Target gift cards so we only paid $80 for all of this! Yay!


Wow! All that for $80 is amazing! Congrats on your cookware. I can't imagine living without it!

Good thing you have that electric griddle though. =)
