The Experiment: Is it possible to stay on target, at Target?

I am not an impulse shopper by habit, but when it comes to Target I always seem to lose my godblessed mind (I feel like this is a bad joke setup and I should add 'amiright ladies?'). But it's true. I enter Target and turn into a nut job. So I got to thinking 1) what is it about stores like Target that cause many of us to go bananas and 2) if I really wanted, could I even get through Target without impulse spending? So I hiked up my off-brand yoga pants, bought an overpriced Starbucks latte from the adjoining kiosk and spent a morning investigating...

The Experiment

And once I am there, it's like, might as well try on some giant beach hats and pick up some tank tops and a paperweight shaped like a woodland creature and 25 sale yogurts. In other words, it gets real weird, real fast. The experiment (performance art?) went like this:
