Back-to-school time equals mommy needs more wine! And now we know where to get it!


Just when you thought you couldn't love Target any more, the retail mecca is now offering up a deal that's perfectly timed for any parent feeling the back-to-school-season stress. The best place to buy, well, everything is introducing a new $5 wine blend assortment from California Roots. That's right: Each bottle of mommy juice costs about the same amount as a designer coffee drink. Or a carton of organic whole milk. Go ahead. I'll wait while you get down on your knees and praise God for this amazing development.

The five wines—Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Cabernet Sauvignon and Red Blend—are available only at Target, starting September 3. Um, I hope there's not a limit on how many bottles you can buy.

It's worth mentioning that you can also buy premium boxed wine by Wine Cube at the same place you already spend 99 percent of your week. Now, if only your kids would go to bed at a reasonable hour so you could enjoy a glass of that $5 wine before you fall asleep from sheer exhaustion, things would be perfect.
