Cutie Containers, on the Cheap!

Trips to Target just aren't what they used to be.  B.C. (that would be Before Children) I would go up and down every single aisle (Zac would usually call to check in, making sure I hadn't been mugged...that's how long I would be gone), even though I only needed milk and bananas (and probably a skirt, because let's be real, you can't go to Target without swinging by the clothes...it's like in the handbook).  Well, now that I have a 3 year old and 6 month old I take a deep breath and try to run through the store, in hopes that no one cries, has to use the bathroom, yada yada.  The other day though, I sneaked out with just my tiny guy and he was such a little honey, he let me relive the old days as we serpentined through every aisle.  It was a token of heaven, especially when I came across a wonderful little end cap in the kitchen section that was loaded with these adorbsy little lidded containers! 

Now, I am not embarrased to admit that I am a total sucker for a lidded container...especially ones that are on sale (this week, so hurry...not because the original price of $1.99/each was outrageous, but they are so dang cute I imagine them flying off the shelves as I type)

I am kind of obsessed with the vintage feel of
 the basket weave pattern. 

Perfect size for fresh berries on the go, and the
lid snaps super secure, so I just popped this
container in my bag today!  

 or homemade, frozen baby food.  I just
take the prepared portions out of the freezer 
the night before, and breakfast for the park is set to go!

or a snack for mama!

These containers remind me of some small melamine bowls that West Elm rolled out a
 few years ago.  They also remind me of the dishes I am always drawn to when walking 
through Anthropologie. But, at a price I feel dang good about.  Thank you, Target!
