TEEN Mom Kailyn Lowry angered fans who slammed her as "wasteful" for for her recent nearly $800 spending spree at Target.
The reality star appears to be doing just fine in the finances department as she is currently in the process of building her $850K mansion.
Kailyn showed off her purchases in a TikTok video claiming that the outing was initially to gather "essential items" for the family's upcoming trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
The clip first began with Kailyn capturing her cart full of items while at the register, before zooming in on the hefty total displayed on the screen.
The 29-year-old is heard saying in the background: "I really overextended myself."
She then showed fans her final bill amounting to $766.31.
While holding up the receipt, she commented: "Just got back from Target and I never anticipated spending this much, but I spent almost $800 and this is what $800 gets you at Target."
Kailyn laid out the items on the table to showcase her extensive shopping trip, before detailing what she bought.

The young mom admitted that much of the purchases were "things to try" as she held up various items like chips, protein bowls and shakes.
She also showed off her new coffee maker that she said she "didn't plan on getting but wanted to try."
Much of the other purchases were for her four sons including a slew of clothing for her eldest son Isaac, 11, a hairbrush for her son Lux, four, and toys to occupy the little ones during the plane ride.
Kailyn is also mom to sons Lincoln, eight, and Creed, one.
Viewers bashed the Teen Mom 2 star for her excessive spending spree with one writing: "Is this what happens when your word of the year isn’t budget 😂😂😂"
Another accused the TV personality of flaunting her wealth asking: "Is this a bragging post?"
A second person agreed commenting: "why don't you have a red card and use circle? oh because you don't have to worry about money. so this video just seems braggy just sayin."
While another user simply commented: "Waste" in response to the star's pricey bill.
It seems the MTV star is not hurting for cash as Kailyn's $48,000 in PPP loans have been forgiven for her podcast and her shuttered haircare company, according to records first reported by the reality star fan account Wawamelen.
PPP loans are part of a federal program with funds earmarked for small businesses hit hardest in the pandemic to help them pay employees.
Kail, 29, who first took out the loans for her podcast company Kailyn Lowry LLC and her haircare company, Pothead Inc in April of 2020- was let off the hook for them in June of 2021.
The Pothead Inc loan was for $17,048, with records noting that the funds were anticipated to be used for payroll expenses- the company boasted two employees.
In July, a month after she was forgiven for the two loans, Pothead Inc’s Instagram page announced it was closing up shop and alleged it was only a temporary closure, although there have been no updates since.
The beauty company claimed the reasons for the closing are "issues" related to "CBD regulations, deliveries being 'confiscated' on route, and the 'restricted ability to advertise.'"
Kailyn Lowry LLC is at least in part used for her Coffee Convos Podcast which, according to the loan filing, has five employees.
Last year Kail boasted: "Truthfully I make more money on my podcast than I do on an episode of Teen Mom.”
She made the disclosure after she opened up about choosing not to participate in an episode of the show because she said she didn’t agree with the story line.
The Teen Mom star has also been building her dream Delaware mansion for the better part of a year.
Kailyn has been sharing updates throughout construction, especially as it nears completion.
As 2021 came to a close, the MTV personality shared with fans just how close to done her home is.
She purchased the land to build her home on in February 2021 and spent the entire year working on it.
