Holiday clearance should now be at 70% for many of you and Holiday Candy at 50% if your store has anything left. What can be found will vary from store to store, but definitely worth taking a good look around for anything you might want to go ahead and stock up on for next year. I know some of you may have hardly anything left and it’s hard to see some of these pictures, but for those of you whose stores had an abundance of leftovers it’s a great time to take advantage of thinking ahead for next year.
Also- be sure and scan if your signs only say 50%- since sometimes stores don’t always get to signage in the beginning of the day. Kelley found 70% at both her Maryland stores today, however, only one store had signage- so just take that quick minute to scan- as you never know! If you are still at 50%- be sure and keep a close eye on it- as most of you should be at 70% Off by tomorrow if you don’t find it today.
All the candy was at 50% for Kelley today- even the good stuff. Fortunately this year- we have quite a few coupons that are still valid- and even some stacks that make for some awesome deals.
For example- the Dove White Chocolate Promises are 50% Off at $1.84, and we still have our $1.50/2 Dove chocolate 7.94 oz+ Target Coupon x1/11/13, stack it with the $1.00 off 2 MARS Holiday Bags and pay just $1.18 for 2 or .59 cents each after coupons!
But most of the candy is $2.99 when it is regular price, so you will be starting at $1.50 per bag BEFORE coupons! Now use coupons and you are in for some great deals! …

Kelley found a variety of things at her store marked down 70%, including a wealth of wrapping paper & ribbons, bows, gift bags, stockings, lights, trees, ornaments, stocking hangers, a few tree toppers, holiday-themed socks and other select apparel.
Keep in mind that some items will actually get clearanced in the regular aisles too, so take a good look around in each area. For example Kelley found these Betty Crocker Mint Chocoalate Chip Cookie Mixes in the regular aisle- no stickers or signs- but they are 70% Off down to .62 cents. We have a .40/1 Betty Crocker Cookie Mix 14oz+ 12-9-12 SS x2/2/13 or .40/1 Betty Crocker Cookie Mix Pouch 12 oz+ 11-18-12 SS x1/12/13 to make them just .22 cents each.
In fact, many items do not get stickered or signed, so be sure to scan, scan, scan. Also please feel free to comment on this post and tell us what you have been finding so we know what other hidden goodies we should be looking for! I still have the Christmas Clearance prep list available to reference, but keep in mind some of the more popular grocery/household items listed will probably already be gone.
As far as the next drop to 90% Off, I have already heard rumors that it won’t happen this year, but honestly I feel like I hear that every year- so I am hoping that is all it is – a rumor- and that we will see whatever is left go to 90% Off sometime between January 3rd & 5th. But keep in mind- nothing is set in stone when it comes to clearance at Target- so keep a close eye, and if you have concerns, use your coupons and grab some nice deals at 70% Off. Happy clearance hunting everyone!
