easter

As I posted yesterday some of you are already finding Easter up to 90% Off. Candy seemed to have been stuck at 50% for most of you as of yesterday, but you may want to check again today. Kelley’s dropped to 70% Off today and if you find the same, there are some items that will be as low as FREE with coupons.

mnms
She found M&M’s down to just .95 cents, and there is a $1/2 M&M’s 9.9-oz.+ Target Coupon x5/9 and a $1/1 M&M’s 9 oz+ 3-22-15 RP x5/3 you can use to make them as low as FREE if your store is at 70% Off Candy.

There is also a $0.50 Off any Brach’s item (at zip 68130) *NOTE* A large ad prints underneath. a whole endcap of these bunnies for 70% Off at .65 cents, so .15 cents after coupon. But some of you may still have the chocolate bunnies that were $1.59 regular price and other items that will be as low as FREE after 70% off clearance & coupon.

I still can’t believe how much candy she has left! I am not sure I will find anything at all today but I’ve got my coupons clipped just in case! :) You may also want to check out the posts & comments HERE and HERE & HERE to see what others have found this year for Easter clearance.

easter-clearance-3

Some of you should find Easter at 90% Off today- but if your store has not dropped yet, I would watch it close 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 shot above is from Kelley’s holiday section this afternoon at the Laurel, MD Target. She also went to her Dobbin, store this morning and found absolutely nothing in the Easter section. These stores are not that far apart – so if you have more than one store in your area- it may be worth checking them both out- since what is left at each could be drastically different.

brachsDespite dropping to 90 on non-perishable Easter items, her Candy & food was still stuck at 50%. But there are 3 coupons available right now to give you a fantastic break on candy even if you are at 50% Off too.

First, there is a $0.50 Off any Brach’s item (at zip 68130) *NOTE* A large ad prints underneath, so you may want to pick another coupon to print with it to avoid this. Kel found Brach’s items as low as .79 cents, so just .29 cents after coupon. Even though they are bunnies perhaps they could be used in cooking or baking sweets in recipes that call for chocolate.

There is also a $1/2 M&M’s 9.9-oz.+ Target Coupon x5/9 and a $1/1 M&M’s 9 oz+ 3-22-15 RP x5/3 you can use on the M&M’s to get them as low as .09 cents each if your store is at 50% Off Candy.

plates
But even if you find nothing in your holiday sections- you can always check the regular aisles for possible Easter finds up to 90% Off too. For example- Kelley found these cute kids plates in the home section. There were 3 designs scanning as part of Easter clearance- a Deer, bunny and frog. These will be as low as .29 cents if your store is at 90% Off.

easter-cups

She also found these cute crazy straw cups in the regular aisles- one is obvious with Easter Eggs, but the spring flowers design is also part of the Easter clearance and they will be as low as .39 cents if your store is at 90% off.

crayola-deals
Check the Crayola aisles for the three packs of Crayons shrink-wrapped together. Kelley found them hanging in the regular aisle and there were three different designs all ringing up .49 cents if your store is at 90% – Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First & Jake & the Neverland Pirates. (-Thanks Janelle!)

just-one-you

Check the Baby department for Just One You by Carter’s Easter apparel. These will not be stickered as clearance but you are looking for the little chick on the label to be holding a purple Easter Egg. These special tags will all ring up as part of Easter clearance like this cute sleeper Kelley found, at just .89 cents if your store is at 90% off too. (-Thanks Carrie!)

nuk-pacifiers

Also – watch for these 2-packs of Nuk Pacifiers in the baby department. Some of you may have had them with the basket stuffers originally- but it’s possible some may have gotten put back with the other pacifiers in the regular aisles. Kelley found like 8 of them hanging up in the regular aisle and these will be as low as .44 cents if your store is at 90% Off. -Thanks Christie!

I will cross my fingers and hope some of you out there have some luck scoring some great after-Easter bargains. Let us know if there are other hidden finds we should be looking for and you may also want to check out the posts & comments HERE and HERE to see what others have found!

easter-clearance
Many of you should now find Easter Clearance up to 70% Off today if your store has anything left. I heard a few people dropped yesterday, so there should be a lot more stores dropping today. If you don’t see signs be sure and scan just in case.

Not all stores go to 70% on the same schedule, but there is always the possibility the signs haven’t been switched, so it’s always worth a scan to check. Kelley took all these shots at her Ellicott City, MD store this morning- and she has just a TON of stuff left!

food-candy

All Kelley’s candy and food dropped to 50% Off and as you can see she has a ton of that left too!

candy-clearance

She also had an endcap just PACKED with M&M’s! They were down 50% Off to $1.59 and after a stack they will be as low as .09 cents each if you find your store at 50% Off candy too…

Buy 2 M&M’s Easter Candy ($1.59 on clearance for 50% Off) = $3.18
-$1 off two M&M’s chocolate candies 9.9-oz.+ (excl non-candy) Target Coupon x5/9
-$2.00 (use two $1/1 Mars M&M’s Chocolate Candies Bag 9 oz+ 3-22-15 RP x5/3
= .18 cents for 2 or .09 cents each after stack & clearance, regularly $3.19 each
 easter-decor
Watch for anything non-perishable that you may be able to use for next year. Clearance is usually a great time to pick up décor items for a fraction of the cost to save for next year. Kelley found these great Easter Egg wreaths that were nicely done down to $5.99, regularly $19.99.

placemats

And also take a look around for items you may be able to repurpose for another holiday- be it Birthday, baby shower or even everyday use. Kelley found these great gift bags that just have flowers on them but are part of the Easter clearance at .75 cents. And these cute placemats for .89 cents that are just Spring-themed with nothing Easter on them.

easter-pets

And be sure to check other parts of the store too. Some stores don’t get everything moved back to the Easter clearance section right away, and you don’t want to miss any possible goodies. For example check out the pet section with toys as low as $1.49 if your store is at 70.

easter-shirts

And check out the clothing departments too for items that may still be on the floor like these cute Circo Chick Tees that Kelley found that will be as low as $1.79 if your store is at 70.

Also be sure and check your dollar spot just in case. Kelley had absolutely no luck in hers- everything was gone, but stores can be different so it’s worth a quick look in case you have better luck!

Happy hunting and feel free to leave comments on this post letting us know what you found and if there are any hidden surprises in the regular sections of the store we should be looking for!

easter-clearance

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. Easter clearance is also great time to pick up non-perishables for next year- like decorations, die kits, baskets, plush toys and more.

Watch for some of the Easter Basket stuffer toys which would be great for stocking stuffers or party favors, or plastic utensils & other disposable table top items that can be used for birthday parties or other celebrations. You may also want to check the One Spot for Easter clearance too although Kelley only found 30% in hers this morning.

clearance-candy

While some specialty candy & food items may be 50% Off, most of the candy will sit at 30% Off, and other select food items may sit at 30% Off too. Kelley had just a ton of candy this morning – and quite a few food items – all 30% Off.

mnms

We also got a new stack this morning on M&M’s and I am happy to say the M&Ms Target coupon did NOT exclude clearance this time. :) The M&M’s will be down to $2.23, making for a nice deal after stack…

Buy 2 M&M’s Easter Chocolate Bags ($2.23 at 30% Off clearance) = $4.46
-$1 off two M&M’s chocolate candies 9.9-oz.+ (excl non-candy) Target Coupon x5/9
-$2.00 (use two $1/1 Mars M&M’s Chocolate Candies Bag 9 oz+ 3-22-15 RP x5/3
= $1.46 for 2 or .73 cents each after stack

clearance-pet

Be sure and take a look around the regular aisles too for items that may not have gotten moved back to the holiday section. For example, Kelley found Easter pet toys on clearance for 50% Off as low as $2.49 and even better we have a -10% Off Easter Pet Toys & Apparel Target Cartwheel x4/11 that does not exclude clearance you can use to save even more. You are looking for a green & purple tag that has an Easter Egg on it in the corner.

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 longer for other stores since it can vary as far as when they drop to 70% Off. 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. Especially if you have a ton of stuff left like Kelley did today!

Happy-Easter
Happy Easter everyone! I look forward to this holiday every year- the fun of Easter baskets and egg hunting  are great- but it is also a SUPER-RARE Sunday off for me.! :)

I am so thrilled to be spending some quality time with my family and I hope you all get to do the same. So here’s wishing you all a very Happy Easter and I hope everyone has an awesome day!

Tomorrow, Monday, April 6th will be when all Easter should go 50% Off except for candy & possibly 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 172015

valentines-clearance-1
Valentine’s Day clearance should now be at 70% for some of you if your store has anything left. Mine was pretty sparse even as of Sunday- I think everything they had left could have fit in 4 carts :( so I did not make a trip today, but Kelley has just a ton left this morning at her Elicott City, MD store. I can’t believe how many pillows, small toys, infant clothing, baking trays & more that she had! If your store has not dropped to 70% yet, it is likely many of you will have the drop to 70% tomorrow.

valentines-clearance-2

So if your store looks anything like hers, you may want to dig around and see what you can find. Despite her signs being a little mish-mash – some saying 70 and some saying 50, all non-candy and non-food was 70% Off for her when she checked at the scanner. It is ALWAYS a good idea to check the price at the scanner. Some stores just don’t manage to get to their proper signage, and you will never know if you just walk away.

friskies

For example, her Friskies Love Packs were signed at 50, but ringing up 70% Off. Unfortunately the Friskies Cartwheel does not work on these treats, however- it still makes for an awesome deal if you have any left…

Buy 2 Friskies Party Mix Cat Valentine 3pk Treats (total wt 6.3 oz) 70% Off at $1.19 = $2.38
-$1/2 Friskies Party Mix Cat Treats Valentine’s Love 3-Pk Mobile TQ (txt OFFERS 827438) x2/18
-$2.00 (use two $1/1 Purina Friskies Cat Treats 6 oz+ 1-25-15 RP1 x4/25
= as low as FREE for two 3pks after stack

valentines

I am super-shocked at how much candy she has! It is just crazy- and again some of her signs still said 30% off, but all candy and snack foods were at 50% Off for her when she checked at the scanner.

mms

The Valentine’s M&Ms and Dove and other Mars candy were all down to 50% Off for her with as low as $1.59 for M&Ms if your store is at 70/50. If you’ve got lots of candy left too, here’s the coupons out there to help sweeten the clearance deals…

$1.50/2 Dove or M&Ms Chocolate Candies 6 oz+ Target Coupon Valentines Booklet x3/1
$1 off two M&M’s candy items 9.9-oz. or larger Target Coupon (no longer available) x2/21
-$1.00 OFF Any (TWO) bags of M&M’s Brand Chocolate Candies, 9.9oz+
-$1/2 Mars Snickers, M&M’s, Twix, Milky Way or Minis Mix 8 oz+ 1-11-15 RP x2/22

clothing

What can be found will vary from store to store, but definitely worth taking a good look around for anything you might want to stock up on for next year. And be sure to scope out other areas of the store. Check in home & housewares, and check in the regular grocery aisles too just in case- and also  check out the clothing departments and baby too. While many items that are holiday get moved to the holiday clearance section- sometimes things get left behind.

For example Kelley found a whole rack of these cute Toddler Tees down to $1.80 if your store is at 70. Sometimes things are obviously Valentine’s but others are quite subtle- so look around for other possibilities you may want to scan just in case.

lego-friends

Also to check – there are 2 certain LEGO sets that are part of the Valentine’s Day clearance. These were originally back in the holiday section, however Kelley found quite a few up at the front registers mixed in. SO if you don’t find any in the back- it can’t hurt to check up front just in case. If your store is at 70% Off- they will be as low as $1.04.

tumblers

In the regular kids drink ware aisles Kelley found these cute tumblers mixed in with the others. There was a couple different kinds mixed in and they will be scanning as low as .44 if your store is at 70.

valentines-day

She also found a BUNCH of kids plates and bowls mixed in with others in the regular aisle. Not all are ringing up 70, but above are the ones she found at 70% off down to as low as .44 and there may be more.

heart-symbolOne thing you can take a look for is the price sticker on the undersides of products. Just watch for the little white heart in a black circle like shown to the right which will usually indicate that it is part of the holiday clearance.

As far as a next drop to 90% Off- if history repeats we should see it as early as February 19th, but remember, there is no set schedule and stores can differ, so keep a close eye! Happy clearance hunting folks and let us know if you find anything good or anything hidden that we should be looking for this year!

Feb 152015

valentines-day-clearance

So if you’re 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, and bagged candy & most food were 30% Off for Kelley. You will likely have to scan if you are not sure of some things- since most holiday clearance does not get stickered.

mnms

We lost our M&M’s Target Coupon today but if you still have it you have thru 2/21 to use it. Or, If you got the Valentine’s Day Booklet there was a Target Coupon in there valid thru 3/1…

$1.50/2 Dove or M&Ms Chocolate Candies 6 oz+ Target Coupon Valentines Booklet x3/1
$1 off two M&M’s candy items 9.9-oz. or larger Target Coupon (no longer available) x2/21
-$1.00 OFF Any (TWO) bags of M&M’s Brand Chocolate Candies, 9.9oz+
-$1/2 Mars Snickers, M&M’s, Twix, Milky Way or Minis Mix 8 oz+ 1-11-15 RP x2/22

friskies-treats

Also be sure and look for the Friskies Valentine’s Love 3-pk Treats which Kelley found at 50% Off down to $1.99. If you haven’t used it, our mobile coupon is valid for a few more days & there is an insert coupon to stack…

Buy 2 Friskies Party Mix Cat Valentine 3pk Treats (total wt 6.3 oz) 50% Off at $1.99 = $3.98
-$1/2 Friskies Party Mix Cat Treats Valentine’s Love 3-Pk Mobile TQ (txt OFFERS 827438) x2/18
-.15 (use 5% Off Purina Friskies Party Mix Cat Treats Target Cartwheel x4/11
-$2.00 (use two $1/1 Purina Friskies Cat Treats 6 oz+ 1-25-15 RP1 x4/25
= .83 cents for two 3pks, or .42 each or like paying around .14 per 2.1 oz pouch

valentine clearance

Unfortunately, Kelley only found 30% Off on Valentine’s Day Items in her Dollar Spot which I thought was super-strange, but hopefully that’s a fluke and some of you will have better luck and find 50% off.

Typically 50% Off lasts for 3 or 4 days before the next drop which usually goes to 70% on non-perishables and 50% off on candy and some food items. Last year it happened as early as the 17th for some, but stores can differ- so it’s something to keep a close eye on in the days to come! Happy hunting and let us know what you find!

Feb 142015

vaelentines-day

Hope you all enjoy a Happy Valentine’s Day! Also just a reminder that tomorrow 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.

mnms-coupon

Don’t forget that we have a great stack on Valentine’s M&M’s right now too that is still valid for another week and should come in handy for a nice deal…

$1 off two M&M’s candy items 9.9-oz. or larger Target Coupon x2/21
-$1.00 OFF Any (TWO) bags of M&M’s Brand Chocolate Candies, 9.9oz+
-$1/2 Mars Snickers, M&M’s, Twix, Milky Way or Minis Mix 8 oz+ 1-11-15 RP x2/22

There’s also a couple of Dove coupons that are still valid as well…

$1 off two Dove Chocolates 6.6-oz. or larger Target Coupon x3/7
$1.50 off two Dove Chocolate hearts 7.94-oz. or larger Target Coupon x2/21

demets-coupon

You can grab a new coupon today to save $1.00 on ONE (1) Valentine’s Day or regular package of TURTLES 3.5oz or larger (68130). This coupon does print with an ad below it, so may want to pick another coupon to print with it to avoid this. I also noticed this coupon does print with a 30-day expiration date of 2/22, so it may come in handy for Valentine’s day clearance if you are a Turtles fan!

Jan 052015

candy-snack-aisles

Most of you should have hit 90% Off on after-Christmas clearance by now with 70% Off on Food & candy. My store hit 90% yesterday, but there was just nothing left in Holiday at all by the time I got there aside from a very few things, but I did have a little luck in other parts of the store.

I spent $11.01 after tax for everything above, and was pretty happy with my little trip. Despite having practically NO Holiday food left in the Christmas section- I was happy with what I found in the regular aisles. But each store will vary with what you can find and it all comes down to luck, and whether or not team members have already reset certain sections of your store.

The clock is ticking now though- and it is just a matter of time before any items left will be taken off the floor and whatever gets missed will be taken out of the system and scan as INF (item not found). Usually 90% lasts only a few days & everyone won’t have the same luck I did – but… that being said, here’s a few things you may want to check for in your own stores in the regular aisles that I found late last night…

chex-deals

I know lots of you had your holiday sections stocked with the Holiday Chex Mix, but be sure and scout the regular aisles too. I think I found around 8 bags last night – and was very proud of myself for not buying any. I love the Snickerdoodle- but unfortunately can go through a whole bag myself far too quickly. ;) If you find them too- they will be as low as .89 cents and there’s still a 50¢ ON TWO BAGS Chex Mix or in the 11-16 SS or 12-7 SS1 x1/31.

goldfish

Also check the Goldfish aisle for the Hot Cocoa Grahams just in case. These have an obvious Christmas Ornament on the top front of the bag- so I was really surprised to find so many at my store, but worth a peek at yours too just in case your Goldfish Shelves have not been reset yet.

lindt

Also check the Lindt Candy aisle. I found about 8 White Chocolate Truffle Holiday Bags (look for the Snowflakes on the bag) in with all the regular Lindt. They were down to $1.19 each at 70% Off. It’s a good thing the White CHocolate does not appeal to me like Milk Chocolate does or I would have brought all 8 bags home. :)

As for the other things I found- I actually had LOTS of Window clings hanging in stationery near the kids stickers found in the single cards department. They were there for me since Holiday started and never brought to the back when clearance started, so it may be worth a look in case your store left them there too, since I only paid .20 cents each.

I discuss the Men’s holiday boxers shown above and other things I found on the following posts at the links below – plus these posts may give you other ideas on what to look for and you can check out the comments too to see what others have found…
