Find a $10 Target every time I go shopping — it's in my freezer all the time.


If you're in a “mixed-food” family, you know how it goes: one person wants meat, another wants fish, and maybe there are some vegetarians or vegans in the mix. Eating together is an important part of being close, but it's hard to accommodate everyone's preferences at one meal.

For me, my husband, and our circle of friends, this dynamic is always evolving. When I'm ready to make a meatless meal for my vegetarian husband and I and an omnivore or paleo-leaning friend or family member comes over, I can easily add a plate or two to the table. Can and skip Target's frozen Trident Wild Catch Salmon. Burgers save the day. Suddenly, we're having a simple dinner party with friends.

Since this product costs $9.99 for six burgers, it's not wise to keep it in the freezer all the time. It is the perfect solution to any food dilemma.
