I hope many of you are having as much fun with Target summer clearance as my family. Even my dog Luna is having a great time on her new Big Mouth hot dog float. My hubby picked it up this morning for just $1.99 (DPCI #091-11-4084) since I got an awesome surprise when I discovered one of my local stores had dropped summer clearance to 90%.

All my other stores were still at 70%, so if your store has been at 70 for a few days and didn’t drop today – there is a good chance it will drop tomorrow.

Keep in mind that most of summer clearance will not get stickered- and signage may also not reflect the full percentage off, so it is always wise to scan, scan, scan! Once your store hits 90% the clock is ticking and items will not stay in the system much longer.

And just a quick note that while Brickseek might be helpful in indicating some of the inventory levels at your stores, unfortunately it does not seem to be accurately reflecting summer clearance pricing.


In addition to Luna’s hot dog, my husband also found some other Big Mouth floats as part of the summer clearance, including this Giant pretzel-shaped pool float which will be $1.99 if your store is at 90%. Not ALL Big Mouth floats are included in the clearance, but watch for the sunglasses, hot dog, pretzel & popsicle shapes and be sure and scan though, as some designs were full price.


Poptimism was this year’s theme in the summer seasonal section, so be sure to keep a look out for this word on packaging. I would still price check at the scanner, but if it has the word Poptismism, there is a good chance it will scan at up to 90% off. These roomy Poptimism totes will be just .99 if your store is at 90% off.


Poptimism inflatable pools with canopies were as low as $1.99.


Poptimism String lights as low as $1 if your store is at 90%.


Poptimism Grill accessories including extension forks as low as .50 if your store is at 90%.


Another clue that things might be part of summer clearance are items in funky, brightly-colored retro patterns like these plastic totes for just $1.49 if your store is at 90%…


Vaseline lip therapy tins will be just .29 if your store is at 90.


This cheeseburger/ice cream pattern was also on quite a few items this year, so watch for tablecloths & disposable tableware like these bowls as low as .20 if your store is at 90%.


Disposable cups in a variety of patterns for just .10 if your store is at 90.


There was a lot of plastic beverage wear this year too including these fun cups as low as .14 if your store is at 90%.


And plastic Beverage dispensers will be as low as .99 if your store is at 90.


Another one of my favorite things to look for in summer clearance is sunscreen. I picked up a couple the other day at 70% off, but I was happy to see that my hubby found plenty left at 90% off. So we stocked up since these 3-packs were just $1.39 or .46 per sunscreen. Here’s a couple more DPCI’s for you from my receipt – SPF 30 3-packs (DPCI# 037-11-0344) and SPF503-packs (DPCI# 037-11-0436) also both $1.39 if your store is at 90.


In the end, he paid around $20 after clearance prices, tax & red card discount for all our summer goodies and we saved about $185. I know some of you may have stores that are straggling in discounting this section and may not even at 70% yet, but keep a close eye on it. Everything in this section will eventually be clearanced out to make room for new stuff.

Also – you might want to check out my post HERE for more details & other things to watch for that are part of the summer clearance.

Remember – not all stores follow the same clearance schedule- but with absent stickers, and possibly wrong signage- you will never know unless you scan some items to check! Good luck, Happy hunting and I hope many of you find some great goodies!

Some of you may now find Target Easter Clearance at 90% Off today! If you find your store has not dropped yet, I would watch it closely as it may go tomorrow.


If you don’t see 90% Off Signs, be sure and scan a few things just in case your signs are wrong. The shots above are from Kelley’s holiday section this morning at the Ellicott City, MD Target and once again I am jealous as she has quite a bit of stuff left!


With the discount so deep, it’s a great time to pick up things for next year – like these Minion Easter Egg decorating kits down to .30 cents if your store is at 90.


And watch for items you can grab that are non-perishable to use for Easter basket fillers next year – like these adorable bunny cups that will be just .29 if your store is at 90.


Watch for other items you can re-purpose for other occasions too. I love using the Sprtiz Easter grass for stuffing gift bags and boxes all year long.


All her candy and food was at 70% Off and my goodness she sure had a LOT, and I just couldn’t believe how much she had left.


While there are not a lot of coupons out there to use on food & candy, if you have the  $1.50/2 Mars M&M’s Chocolate Candies 9.4 oz+ 4-2-17 RP x5/20 these will be just .20 cents each when you buy 2.

Happy hunting folks & you may also want to check out the following clearance post for other Easter finds and things to keep an eye out for…

Apr 202017


In addition to the Non-Perishable Target Easter Clearance finds at 70% Off I posted yesterday– here’s some good news on the food & candy! Kel found another discount on candy and food today at her store and everything was now down to 50% Off. I feel like she always has SO MUCH left and I never find anything- but that’s the way clearance rolls at Target.

Anyway… if you find the candy & food dropped for you today too – there are a few items to look for that we have coupons & cartwheels for. Here’s a roundup for you…


Watch for the Nabisco Oreo Limited Edition Peeps Cookies. If your store is at 50, they will be $1.49 and there is a 5% Off Oreo Peeps & Spring Target-Cartwheel x4/22 you can use to save a little more.


Watch for the Easter Bottles of M&M’s down to $1.49 if your store is at 50. There is a printable coupon available to save $0.50 on ONE (1) M&Ms Bottle that will make them just .99 cents.


Watch for select sizes of Easter M&M candy bags that will meet the weight requirement to use the $1.50/2 Mars M&M’s Chocolate Candies 9.4 oz+ 4-2-17 RP x5/20. Some of the flavors will not be heavy enough but these M&M’s Easter Peanut bags are 11.4 oz and will be $1.59 if your store is at 50 making them just .84 cents after coupon wyb 2.


Also be sure to take a look for the Bunny Burst Tic Tacs. If your store is at 50, they will be FREE after the .50/1 Tic Tac Mints or Mixers 60 ct 3-19-17 SS x6/19!

Some of you may find up to 70% Off Easter clearance at your Target stores today. Kelley headed out to check out her local Ellicott City, MD store and she found 70% off all non-perishable Easter! It may not be that way for all of you yet- but if you don’t see 70% signs- don’t forget to scan just in case the signs haven’t been switched out yet. She really has just a TON of stuff and I’m sitting here drooling over her pictures. :)

Unfortunately candy was stuck at 30 for her – but that sometimes happens and for those of you who drop to 70 too – you may luck out and find candy and food at 50%. Remember- the majority of the Easter clearance will not have stickers- so you will need to verify your prices at the scanner. If you didn’t drop today- there’s a good chance that many more stores will drop tomorrow Thursday, April 20th.

easter dye kit

Watch for anything non-perishable that you can use for the following year like Decor, gift bags, paper goods & more. It’s great to be able to save now instead of paying a higher price next year like these Easter Egg dying kits down to .45 cents from $1.50 if your store is at 70.

m and m

There’s a new printable coupon available to save $0.50 on ONE (1) M&Ms Bottle. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a coupon for these, and we often see sales and cartwheel offers too.

m and m 2

But you may want to check in your Easter section for Easter-themed bottles which are on clearance for 30% Off down to $2.09. After coupon they would be just $1.59 each, regularly $2.99. Or if you have any left when Easter candy goes to 50%, it will make for an even better deal.

Apr 172017


For those of you headed out to Target today- you should find much of whatever Easter inventory your store has left up to 50% Off. Kel had just a TON of stuff left- but just a heads up that despite plenty of signage- nothing had been marked down in the system yet.

It’s early – so hopefully they will correct it soon – and it may not be a nation-wide issue – but just a heads up to watch at the registers since team members may have to manually input your discount if you find the same situation at your stores.


Easter clearance is also a great time to pick up non-perishables for next year- like decorations, dye kits, baskets, paper plates and other festive disposable party items.


Kel also had tons of plush toys that would be great for next year or the lambs may even work well in a baby shower gift basket. Watch for some of the Easter Basket stuffer toys which would also make great stocking stuffers or party favors. You may also want to check the One Spot for Easter clearance too.


Candy & food items will be at 30% Off to start, and usually they drop to 50% when non-perishables go to 70.

Be sure and take a look around the regular aisles too for items that may not have gotten moved back to the holiday section like kids & baby apparel.

As far as when the next drop to 70/50 on Easter will happen- it usually takes about 3-4 days for the next discount to happen, sometimes shorter, sometimes longer. There is no definite set schedule and what is left will vary greatly from store to store- but it’s something to keep an eye on at your store if you have interest.

Happy hunting folks!

Apr 162017


Here’s wishing you all a very Happy Easter and I hope everyone has an awesome day! Tomorrow, Monday, April 17th will be when all Easter should go 50% Off except for candy & food items- which usually goes to 30% for the first drop.

Typically we see stores drop again 3-4 days after that with up to 70% Off and then 2 or 3 days later up to 90% Off. Not all stores follow the exact same schedule – and nothing is set in stone, but I’ll be posting updates as the clearance starts to happen.

Feb 172017


Valentine’s Day clearance should now be at 70% for some of you, and if you didn’t find it today there is a good chance you will find it tomorrow. It is always a good idea to check the prices at the scanner even if your signs say 50. Some stores just don’t manage to get all or any proper signage up and you will never know if you just walk away.

Everything non-perishable was scanning at 70 for Kelley, however, candy & food was still stuck at 30% Off for her. It’s unusual that it has not dropped to 50 yet with Easter waiting in the wings, but it may just be in her area- so once again scan if you don’t see signage.


Valentine’s Day clearance is a great way to stock up for things you might need for next year. For example there were many class-exchange card kits this year with no candy in them that will make for cheap  Valentines next year.


Another thing to try and hunt for would be things that would make great Easter Basket Stuffers like these cute kids cups down to $1.19 if your store is at 70.


Despite candy and food being stuck at 30% Off- she did find these Star War Jelly Belly packs at 70% off down to 30% Off. These would also make great little Easter Basket items if you find them too.


You can check Bullseye’s playground as well- but Kelley found that all of her dollar spot items had gotten moved back to holiday like these super-cute beanie knit Tsum Tsum caps down to .90 cents.


And be sure to scope out other areas of the store. While many items that are Valentines get moved to the holiday clearance section- sometimes things get left behind. So check in the regular departments just in case. She found some super-cute Tees still hidden in the apparel dept like these Shopkins Tees down to $2.69, reg. $8.99


And Modern Lux Valentines girls’ Tees down to $3.89, reg. $12.99.


Also cruise the pet department too. Almost all her stuff had gotten moved back to holiday- but she did find these bandanas down to $1.49, reg. $4.99.


One last area to check would be Health & Beauty. She found a couple things hiding among regular-priced items like these Bathery poufs. They come in pink as well- but it looks like it is the same DPCI for both. Just look for the lips on the loop and the tags also say “Be Mine?”. She found quite a few mixed in with the regular poufs – so you never know!


She also found a couple of these Valentine’s day cosmetic bags mixed in with other ones- down to $2.39, reg. $8.99.

So be sure and take a look around the whole store just in case you find some things hiding too! And you can also check out my post HERE for some other tips and things to look for this year.

As far as a next drop to 90% Off- if history repeats we should see it as early as Sunday, February 19th. But remember, there is no set schedule and stores can differ – so keep a close eye! Happy clearance hunting folks!

valentines day

If you are headed to Target today, you should find Valentine’s Day items up to 50% Off. Decorative items, craft kits, party supplies, clothing and most other non-perishables should be at 50% Off. Remember – the majority of the Valentine’s clearance will not be stickered- so become best friends with that price check scanner and scan scan scan!

valentine hearts

Candy & most food will likely be 30% off for most of you to start. We will likely see another drop on Friday 2/17, when candy and food usually drops to 50%. There’s not much in the way of candy coupons, but there are a couple things to look for at your stores.


These Starburst Skittles 40 count fun size packs were 30% off down to $3.49, and there is a  $1/2 Skittles/Starburst Bags 14 oz+ 1-8-17 RP1 x2/19. If your store has a lot of stock, you may want to wait and watch for a bigger drop.


Also keep an eye out for these special holiday Be Mine Tic Tacs also on clearance for 30% off. We have a 20% Off Tic Tac Single Packs Target-Cartwheel x2/18 that does not exclude clearance to save even more.


Another thing to watch for is the classroom exchange candy & snacks. If you have any left, the Pirate’s booty 12 packs will be 30% off and there is a .75 Off when you buy ONE Pirate’s Booty Product. After coupon and clearance, they will be as low as $3.44 each. But, you may want to take a chance and wait for the drop to 50%.

Also watch for the classroom exchange Snack Factory Pretzels & Welch’s Fruit Snacks. There’s a couple of coupons to use too…

-$1/1 Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps 5 oz+ 1-22-17 SS x3/31
-$1/2 Welch’s Fruit Snacks Bag 8 oz+ or Box 8 ct+ (excl. 80 ct) 1-8-17 SS2 x2/18

scotch expressions

While most items can be find in the Valentine’s Day clearance section, you might want to check other parts of the store too. Sometimes items get put back in the regular aisles instead, so be sure and look around.

Kelley found Scotch Expressions Washi tape 3 pks for $2.00, and there is a $1 OFF wyb 1 Scotch Expressions tape that will make them just $1 if you find them too.

valentins pet

 Check the pet department for toys down to 50% Off and as low as $2.99

valentine bakeware

And take a cruise down the Home baking aisle and other home aisles for other items that may have gotten lost along their way back to holiday like this Nordic Ware baking pan Kelley found in the bakeware aisle. While a little luck will be needed and it may be hit or miss- you never know what you may find.

valentienes mens

Kelley found these Valentine’s Boxer shorts in the Men’s Department for 50% off down to $4.99. The DPCI for the ones shown in the picture above is  040-06-0912.


And you may want to check out the toy department too. Kelley found the Valentine’s Barbie Chelsea doll for 50% off in the regular toy aisle at her store.


Another good place to look is with the kids plastic drinkware – sometimes you can find sippy cups put back by mistake that are part of holiday clearance.

Take a look in Bullseye’s Playground too for 50% clearance on Valentine’s day goodies which will be anywhere from .50 cents to $1.50 with 50% Off.

We should see the next drop on the 17th, when non-perishables should go to 70% and candy & some food should drop to 50%. But stores can differ- so it’s something to keep a close eye on in the days to come! Happy hunting and I hope you find some great stuff!

Feb 142017


Hope you all are enjoying a Happy Valentine’s Day! Also just a reminder that tomorrow (2/15) is the day when you should see most Valentine’s Day items go to 50% Off except Candy which should be at 30% Off. Some food items typically lag at 30% Off to start with too. The Valentine’s Day items in Bullseye’s Playground should drop to 50 as well. It’s a great way to stock up on non-perishables for next year- and you may even find a couple goodies you can tuck into this year’s Easter Baskets too!
