While I am glad to hear reports of 90% Off Christmas Clearance in cities in Connecticut, California, Maryland, Washington State, Texas, New Jersey and more, there are lots still stuck at 70% Off. After calling my store this morning and being told we were at 90% Off, I raced out of the house with a wet head in the cold, drove all the way to my store, just to see signs for 70% Off! I thought okay- there is still a chance – I’ll scan. But nope still at 70% Off.
As I got madder and madder at the person on the phone who told me it was 90% Off, I started second guessing myself- did they say definitely? I was so excited to just get there, that my rule of usually asking to be transferred to someone who could verify went out the window. So I wandered around Target a bit, defeated and depressed. I roamed into the Scissor aisle- trying to cheer myself up by buying a pair of Scotch precision Scissors- which were finally back in stock, and still ringing up at $1.50. It helped a little but not much.
I then decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and hopped on the phone with Kelley who was at her Target and in such a good mood from finding stuff at 90% Off. So instead of moping, I’m going to try and stay positive. I am happy for Kelley and those of you who did find 90% Off today even though many of you were told you would not. And hopefully, I still have a chance that my store and other Targets will go 90% Off tomorrow. All states/stores may not- but for now I am still hopeful.
I hope that those of you who saw the drop had some luck. Kelley did- and here’s what she found….
I found some great finds at 90 percent off! Turns out that sometimes you can find stuff on the shelves that has just been returned and lucky for me, I found most of them at 90% off! One of my biggest finds today included A Christmas Story Collector’s Series Pint Glass 4-Pack, regularly $19.99 marked down to $1.99! Another big find was the Philips Blue Rope Lighting 9ft, regularly $11.99 marked down to $1.19. I also found Vanity Fair Holiday Insulated Cups 10 pack, for 29 cents; an inital D Holiday Stocking, regularly $13 marked down to $1.30; lots of ribbon and bows, all between .30 and .40 cents; and Gel Clings for .20 cents each.
I found some really cute Holiday Pet Pajamas for my dog, Cappy, only 79 cents! Doesn’t she look cute? 😉 I also found holiday greeting cards, ornaments, beaded garland, jingle bells, candy canes & even Pepperidge Farm Cookies all marked down 90% off. I found the Pepperidge Farm Holiday Cookie Bites in the holiday section but the Ginger Family Cookie Collection was in the regular grocery section on an end cap with other Pepperidge Farm Cookies. There was no indication that they were on clearance – no stickers, signs or anything. Here’s where you have to hunt and scan!!! My total bill was only – drum roll please! – $16.07! My total savings $137.97!!
It was weird though that there was no wrapping paper at my store. I went to another Target yesterday and they had a whole aisle full. I may have to zip over there next to see if they are at 90% off. I also didn’t see any gift bags or tags and as far as stocking stuffers go, only a few boxes of Wonka Storybooks were left. Bagged Candy still sits at 50% off and some holiday candy is still sitting at 70% off. You’ll have to scan everything to see what’s what. The mini candy canes I got were 90% off. I hope some of you have as much fun and luck as I did!
