Heading into Target with kids is never a quick and easy run, but when this busy mom of four popped into her local store to do her shopping, it started out as any other trip.
Erin Bennett lives in Bristow, Virginia with her four kids, two boys and two girls, who range in age from 9-years-old to 5-months-old. She is a registered nurse, who has been a stay-at-home mom for the past few years.
"When I quit my job to stay home with the kids, I decided to give up little extras,'' Bennett said.
She had her two youngest with her, a 2 year-old daughter and 5-month-old son, when she stopped in at the Target and quickly started to fill her cart with groceries and other necessities for her family.
Along the way she grabbed a pumpkin spice candle and some makeup for herself, but when she got to the checkout, she realized she was over her budget and gave the rejected items to the cashier to put back.
“I’ll always pass by the beauty section and grab something and hope that I budgeted and the coupons give me a little extra so I can buy what I wanted to get for myself,” the 29-year-old mom said. “But I usually end up putting it back.”
That's when something out of the ordinary happened.
