30 Things You Leave Target With Instead Of What You Came For

I don't need it, but I want it, oh well, I'm buying it!

Oh Target, how I have such a love-hate relationship with you. No matter how much will power I think I have heading into that store, I somehow end up with a cart full of bags and an empty wallet. I tell myself it's all things I "have to have" or that they are all "necessities." Sometimes, I even walk out with bags full of items, but not the ONE item I went in for in the first place. I know I can't be the only person who does this.

With this being said, here are a few items you're guilty of buying instead of what you actually needed to get (I may or may not have bought all these items the last time I was here.)


1. 5 Head Floor Lamp


2. Pineapple Fairy String Lights

3. Cactus Fairy String Lights


4. "Treat Yo' Self" Novelty Lightbox


5. Metal Marquee Letters

6. Artificial Succulents

7. Wood Ladder Standing Floor Mirror

8. Gold Llama Bookends

9. Cork Bulletin Board

10. Sea Urchin Decorative Wall Decor

11. Extra Large Display Digital Alarm Clock White/Pine

12. Loft by Umbra Clip Photo Line

13. Feather Hooks (Set of 5)

14. Aroma 7-Cup Electric Water Kettle

15. Hashtags Ice Tray

16. Brita Mini Plus

17. Conair Extreme Fabric Steamer

18. Marble Post-It Notes

19. Marble Stapler

20. Case-Mate ID Pocket

21. iPhone 6/7 Case w/ Armband

22. Ribbon Hair Ties

23. Conair 2-In-1 Hot Air Brush

24. Tazo Classic Latte Chai Black Tea

25. Monster Trail Mix

26. Garden Veggie Straws

27. Boom Chicka Pop

28. Decorative Candle Warmer Gold Dot

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.
247200

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

5 Things You Should Know Before Using Poshmark

Here is my Poshmark experience from hell, and how we can all learn from it.

Have you ever thought of buying or selling things on Poshmark? You may want to reconsider.

Maybe you are wanting to buy a designer bag for cheap, or sell some old clothes for a little extra cash. Whatever the reason, this app has serious issues that many people are unaware of.

1. Poshmark Takes Forever To Respond To Customer Service Issues, If At All.

Chances are high that if you are experiencing problems with Poshmark, everyone else is too.

Every time I tried contacting their customer service, I only received automated replies and no solutions. For a company that has made millions of dollars in sales commissions, you would think they would hire more customer service agents to help their users.

Go ahead and try emailing them, tweeting at them, or reaching them on Facebook. They will still give you a robotic response without actually fixing the problem.

2. Poshmark Takes Strict To The Extreme and In All Of The Wrong Ways.

When selling on Poshmark, one of my buyers asked me if I could sell her a sweater at a discount on Mercari. Mercari is an app that works the same way as Poshmark, except it takes a lower commission fee out of seller's earnings at 10% instead of Poshmark's 20%. After seeing that Mercari is noticeably better for sellers, I agreed to sell my sweater on there for free shipping.

Within two days, my account was permanently restricted. I was banned from creating listings or selling anything else on the app. I had numerous pending sales, and my buyers were concerned they would not receive their items. Poshmark is literally so money hungry, they had to ban my account for using their competition. I'm sure you can guess what happened when I emailed customer service... Nothing.

To add insult to injury, they also restricted all other accounts that were linked to my original one. Poshmark has a strict "one account per person" policy, which makes them big Nazi's about chain banning and deleting people. It doesn't even matter how much money you have made them or potentially will make them.

3. Scamming Is Rampant On Poshmark.

Whether you are a buyer or a seller, there are many ways people can get scammed on Poshmark.

First of all, there is no rating system in place to separate legitimate users from scammers. On Mercari for example, buyers are able to rate sellers, and sellers are able to rate buyers out of five stars. On Poshmark, there is barely any user protection measures put in place at all.

Poshmark has a policy that items cannot be returned if they don't fit, but can be returned if the item was not as described. As a loophole, some buyers will purposely damage the item if it doesn't fit just so it can be refunded. It leaves the seller with no earnings, a damaged item, and a bad reputation. The worst part is that you can't even give them a bad rating, and Poshmark always sides with buyers over sellers.

If you are a buyer looking for authentic designer items, steer clear of Poshmark. Many sellers try to trick you into buying replica pieces for the full amount, so beware. Also realize that many Poshmark sellers aren't the most reliable, and may take a long time to actually ship out items. They might not even be active, so be sure to check the reviews left on their closet before buying from them.


4. Poshmark Is Full Of Creepers.

My weirdest Poshmark experience was also my first Poshmark experience. I sold a pair of pants to a buyer under the name of "Karen." It seemed pretty normal at first until I saw the name listed on Karen's shipping address was "Joseph." Luckily, I read an article on Business Insider by Hayley Peterson beforehand, which warned about creepy men trying to get the addresses of unsuspecting women on Poshmark for potentially sinister reasons.

I looked into Karen's previous purchases and saw she bought a lot of used lingerie! Not even kidding, I was horrified. I immediately changed the information on my return label to a male name with a different address from my own.

5. Poshmark is Outdated.

Poshmark is so outdated, they didn't even have a working website up until 2017. It's full of glitches, just like the app version. The FAQ isn't helpful most of the time, and there is no appeal system in place for people like me, who would like to reinstate their accounts.

After everything I have been through, I don't see myself using Poshmark anymore. There are better alternatives out there, including Mercari, threadUP, Swap, Wish, Letgo, and more.

I encourage everyone reading this to please share it with your friends. Inform everyone about the dangers and issues associated with using Poshmark.
