I bet most of you know where I have been all morning. Yes- I did make it to Target this morning- and that empty aisle with a big range of % Off signs I posted about on Tuesday, was now full and all I saw were 50% Off & 70% Off signs. So I was very excited, but started to realize that the shelves were really not that full. Once I got done in the 70% Off aisle I started wandering into the regular toy aisles only to find that there was still a LOT of clearance on the regular shelves and very surprising- a lot of it had bumped to 70% Off. Several Polly Pocket items that had just sat there at 30% Off for weeks were now 70% Off, Moxie, Sprites, Liv and more all now 70% Off but in the regular aisles.
So I would definitely cruise the entire toy department if your 70% Off section looks slim to see what else you can find. And be sure and scan scan scan! Not everything gets stickered 70%, and it takes just a minute to go give an item a quick price check. It is getting harder to shop for Austin these days now that he is getting older and has clearer ideas of what he likes and doesn’t, but I did stock up on a few girl items for friends. I was also able to use my last $5/2 Polly Pocket coupon (no longer available) to get 2 small Polly Pocket sets for FREE as they were marked down to $1.78 each.
I felt that the sale at my store was very disorganized this year- but I know they got a late start for whatever reason. But I can’t complain- I was happy to get what I did and ended up spending $18.63 for $80 worth of toys after my $5/2 Polly Pocket coupon.
And I know not all of you will find the same thing I did- I stopped at my Little T on the way home and no consolidation in sight and only 50% Off in the regular aisles with just a few random items at 70%, so I am happy about what I was able to get this morning and will keep an eye on my Little T. As usual I got a very vague answer from Team members, so it’s up to me to watch. For those of you who found more toys marked to 70% Off today- let me know how you did in the comments!
