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 after my regular trip to gather price cuts etc for the new week, I was just too wiped to tackle clearance too. So I ducked out early this morning instead to see what I could find.

I didn’t have much in the holiday section, so I moved on to see what I could find in the regular aisles. I had quite a bit of luck and ended up with the 28 items shown above for just over $16. Everything I purchased was 90% Off and most of it as a result of comments & e-mails from my awesome readers! I was able to check out several of the reader tips and have some visuals for you too- so I hope it helps.

As I posted earlier today many of you have hit 90% Off on after-Christmas clearance today, 1/4. If you didn’t drop yesterday or today, there’s a very good chance you will drop by tomorrow, Sunday 1/5. Aside from my two other Hidden Finds Posts you can check out HERE and HERE – there’s a few more not-so–obvious clearance finds in the regular aisles of the store that some of you may want to watch for.

While there is no guarantee everyone will find what is mentioned- it certainly can’t hurt to look if you have interest and remember- you won’t be looking for clearance stickers and you can just scan to check the price to make sure.

HELLO KITTY COIN PURSES: Lisa, Brooke and Claire let me know about these cute Hello Kitty coin Purses they found. From their lead Kelley was also able to find these in the regular girls accessories area so take a good look around to see if you can find them too- as they are super cute and will be as low as .49 cents if your store is at 90. She found them hanging near the Monster High coin purses- but only the two different varieties of Hello Kitty shown scanned at 90% Off. -Thanks Brooke, Claire & Lisa!


MY LITTLE PONY MINI PLUSH TOYS: I got an e-mail from Toni and a comment from Sarah about finding these mini My Little Pony plush in the regular toy aisle. Kelley was also able to find them too and these will be ringing up as low as .49 cents if you are at 90% Off. They were mixed in with other colors- but only the yellow and gray scanned for Kelley. But Whitney also commented that the ones scanning at 90% Off have a green wreath tags and she said there were others aside from what is pictured. -Thanks Toni, Whitney & Sarah!


NFL SHERPA THROWS: Jessica and Vanessa told me about some NFL Sherpa Throws that are also ringing up as much as 90% Off. They will be $1.99 if your store is at 90% Off and Kelley was able to find these too. Hers were sitting in on a shelf in her regular Team Sports section. Jessica also commented about the register giving her an additional 30% Off automatically when she bought two. Let us know if that happens for y’all too. -Thanks Jessica & Vanessa!


PET BED: Tess let me know about this Boots & Barkley Pet Bed that also seems to be included in the holiday clearance. Look for the one above – it’s a tagged as a “Cuddle Cave” – regularly $29.99, now down to $2.99. She found hers on an endcap in Pet, but take a good look around in where the other pet beds are too- as you never know! -Thanks for the find & pic to Tess!


EARBUDS & MISC: And here’s a few more finds that just came in an e-mail from Jen in Mass. She dropped to 90% Off today too- and found these Revlon Hair Brushes scanning for .50. She also found the Earbuds shown above in Electronics down to .99 from $9.99. She found the Nautica & elf sets as stray finds – but it can’t hurt to check around the health & beauty endcaps and see if you spot any hanging around. The Nautica was scanning for .99 and her e.l.f. sets were down to .39. -Thanks for the finds & pics to Jen C.!

You can also sort the blog by Clearance to see more of what is being found and check out the comments on these posts too. You can also take a look at the Christmas Clearance prep list for more inspiration on what to look for.

I hope y’all have some luck finding some of the above items if you have interest & feel free to comment and let us know what other hidden finds we can watch for and you can also always e-mail me with any pictures or details of hidden finds we should be looking for.

Just a heads up that even more of you should find after-Christmas clearance up to 90% Off at Target today (1/4). There is no schedule set in stone, and not all stores drop together at once, so if you have anything left at your stores and don’t find 90% Off today there’s a very good chance you will find it tomorrow.


There will be a few stragglers who won’t drop tomorrow, but the majority of you should. Be sure and scan though even if your signs say 70% because you never know! They may just not have their signs out yet.


Kelley headed out to her local Maryland stores this morning- and found 90% Christmas / 70% Off Holiday Candy & food. She actually had quite a bit left as you can see from the pictures- including some trees at 90% Off.


Although she had a LOT of holiday candy left- the majority of it was M&M’s but she was able to pick up 3 bags for FREE after stack with coupons. If you find 70% Off candy today too- you could do this….

Buy 3 Holiday M&M’s Bags (on clearance for 70% Off down to .95) = $2.85
-$1.50/2 M&M’S 9.34-oz. + Target Coupon x1/11 or use $1.50/3 M&M’s 8-oz. + Target Coupon x2/1
-$2/3 Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, Milky Way, Dove, bites or 3 Musketeers Bags 7-11.5 oz
= FREE after stack & clearance


She was also able to find some leftover Betty Crocker Cookie Mix at 70% off down to .56. There’s quite a few varieties ringing up at 70% Off- Molasses, Gingerbread and chocolate mint chip. We still have the $0.75 off 2 Betty Crocker Cookie Mix or there is also an .85/2 Betty Crocker Baking Items (Frosting included) to make them super cheap if you find 70% off on holiday food too.

And be sure to take a good look around the store for those hidden finds in the regular aisles. Not everything gets stickered or brought to the clearance section, so some good old fashioned hunting around in the regular aisles can yield some possible surprises. You can check out my hidden clearance posts for some idea on what to look for and you can check out the comments on these posts too to see what others have found. If you are at 90% Off these finds will be even better…

More Hidden Christmas Clearance Finds- Fisher Price Plush, Kids 3-Piece Meal Sets & More
Target: Hidden Christmas Clearance Finds at 70% Off

You can also still access the Christmas Clearance Prep List for some inspiration on what to look for, but please keep in mind at this point, many of our coupons have expired and the popular items on the list like tissues, paper towels etc will be extremely hard to find at this point. Good luck everyone & I hope many of you are able to find some nice goodies at 90% today or tomorrow and let us know what you find!

Here’s some more hidden Christmas clearance finds to watch for and most of you if not all should be at 70/50 now. I love hunting for hidden clearance and hearing about all your finds, so thanks so much to everyone who contributed to this post- you guys rock! And a big thanks to my sister Kelley- who got us some awesome visuals for many of these finds!

Remember that the items listed below will not have clearance stickers. You will need to become best friends with the price-check scanner. :)

ZAK KIDS MEALTIME SETS: Jane let me know about these really cute kids mealtime sets that include a plate, bowl & cup. She found hers in the regular aisles hanging on pegs but check around the endcaps in that area too near the girls & boys sets. They are $8.99 regular price, but appear to be part of the clearance and will ring up $2.69 if your store is at 70% Off. Only select sets will ring up at 70% – there’s the Spiderman like shown above and Jane also found Disney Frozen and Monsters University. And Denise found that the Sophia the FIrst were also ringing up 70%. Let us know if you find any other characters or varieties included too! -Thanks Jane & Denise!

That nice $2/3 Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, Milky Way, Dove, bites or 3 Musketeers Bags 7-11.5 oz coupon has reset! This goes great with current clearance candy finds at Target- especially since we still have stacks available. If you have some left- most of you should be able to find Candy at 50% Off now.


Buy 3 Holiday M&M’s Bags (on clearance for 50% Off down to $1.59) = $4.77
-$1.50/2 M&M’S 9.34-oz. + Target Coupon x1/11 or use $1.50/3 M&M’s 8-oz. + Target Coupon x2/1
-$2/3 Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, Milky Way, Dove, bites or 3 Musketeers Bags 7-11.5 oz
= $1.27 for 3 or .42 cents each after stack & clearance

You could also use this same manufacturer’s coupon on the Dove Holiday- and we still have a $1.50/2 Dove chocolate items 8.5-oz.+ Target Coupon x1/4 to stack with. If you have a lot left- you can also print now and wait for 70% Off on Candy. I am thinking we will see a drop to 90/70 at some stores starting 1/2, but it could be as early as tomorrow, 1/1.

As I’ve been posting over the last couple of days, after-Christmas clearance is now up to 70% Off for many of you on most holiday, and Candy and Food is at 50% Off. While it’s great to score goodies that are obvious to the eye in the holiday section- one of the best things about after-Christmas clearance hunting is the finds that are not so obvious- the hidden finds that one may never know were on clearance unless you scanned to check.

Quite a few of you have written e-mails and left comments tipping me off to some of these finds and my buddy Christie over at Wild for Wags, who also has a big weakness for Target Clearance :)- scoped out a few of these finds for me tonight. So here’s a few things to watch for at your stores…

Take a look around in the party goods aisle for some hidden clearance on select plates & napkins. In the top right 2 photos- these items were found in with the other partyware. The Poinsettia plates and napkins were obvious but this other gold & red patterned Paper Plates & Napkins shown above are not really that Holliday looking, but are part of the Christmas clearance and ringing up as low as .67 cents if your store is at 70% Off.


Dec 302013


Just a reminder that the After -Christmas Clearance is now up to 70% Off. Quite a few found the drop to 70% Off most Holiday and 50 Off Food & Candy yesterday- so for those of you at 50/50 yesterday- there is a very good chance you may have dropped to 70/50 today.


Not all stores follow the same schedule- but be sure and scan if you don’t see signs for 70. Not all stores manage to get to change out the signage- and unless you scan something you will never know!

You can sort the blog by Clearance to see more of what is being found and check out the comments on these posts too. You can also take a peek at the Christmas Clearance prep list for more references on what to look for and some coupon matchups.

And one more thing to note that did not make it on that list is this year’s limited edition Orla Kiely Method Dish Soap in Peppermint Vanilla. Leslie sent me this pic from her store this morning- she found them in the regular aisle not marked, yet scanning 70% Off for $1.04. There are no coupons that I know of- but it’s a nice big discount if you are a fan of Method. -Thanks Leslie!

I hope y’all have some luck & Happy Hunting! Let us know if you find 70/50 today at your stores and what goodies you found. :)

Holiday clearance hit 70% Off in Maryland for Kelley today and 50% Off on Candy and food. I am not sure if just a few stores dropped early or if many of you will find it at 70 today too- but let us know in the comments. If you don’t drop to 70 today, it’s very likely that many of you will go tomorrow- so keep a close eye. 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, or any time of day for that matter.


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. I am super jealous of all those Dixie plates she has at 70% Off!


All the candy was at 50% for Kelley today- even the good stuff. :) We still have the $1.50/2 M&M’S chocolate candies 9.34-oz. or larger Target Coupon x1/11 and the $2/3 Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, Milky Way, Dove, bites or 3 Musketeers Bags 7-11.5 oz available to print. This will bring the M&M’s down to around .42 cents a bag after coupons & 50% Off.


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.


While she found Goldfish and other Holiday snacks in the holiday clearance area, keep in mind that some items will actually get clearanced in the regular aisles too, so take a good look around in each area.

gingerbreadFor example Kelley found these Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie Mixes in the regular aisle- no stickers or signs- but they are 50% Off down to .94 cents. We have a –.75 off 2 Betty Crocker (including Cookie Mix) to make them just .67 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 may be gone and some of the coupons may no longer be available to print.


Also be sure and check the One Spot for Black Triangle- as you should find it at 70% Off.


We also have Target Cartwheel this year- and if you have the app- don’t forget to scan and check to see if you can find any offers as they all do not always exclude clearance.

precision-scissorsFor example- the 3+1 Packs of Scotch tapes are down to .90 cents and there is a 20% Off Scotch Desktop Tape Dispenser Target Cartwheel x12/31 that does not exclude clearance and works on this tape- making it .72 cents for a 4-pk of tape or around .18 cents each. :)

There is also a 20% Off Scotch Scissors Target Cartwheel x12/31 & Scotch Scissors will be down to $1.50 if your store is at 70, making them $1.20 after cartwheel.

As far as the next drop to 90% Off, some of you dropped as early as January 3rd last year, but now it may be as early as January 2nd for some of you. I have once again already heard rumors that we will never see it go to 90% Off, but so far I have heard that EVERY year, and it has never rung true.

So I am thinking anything that is left should go to 90% Off sometime between January 2nd & 4th. 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, check the Christmas Clearance prep list, and try and use your coupons to grab some nice deals at 70% Off. Happy clearance hunting everyone! :)

While we are all waiting patiently for the next drop on Christmas Clearance to 70% – there are a couple things you may want to check for at your store. All stores do not follow the same markdown schedule- but for starters, Brooke, TJ & Melanie left messages on the TT Facebook page that despite Christmas still being at 50% Off- their One Spot areas with dollar merchandise both had Black Triangle merchandise scanning at 70% Off already. If you don’t see a sign- it can’t hurt to check at the scanners to be sure. Let us know if you found black triangle down to 70 already too! -Thanks for the heads up to Brooke, Melanie & TJ!


Also- Casey sent me these pictures from her home department. She found lots of Threshold seasonal merchandise marked up to 70% Off at her store yesterday, so you may want to take a look in the home department and see what you can find. These items are independent of the Christmas clearance – and although some are quite holiday looking – will likely be found in the home area only. Keep in mind we still have the $5 off Home purchase of $30 or more Target Coupon x1/4 you can use if you can meet the spending threshold. -Thanks Casey!


As far as the regular Christmas/Holiday section in the back of the store goes- so far – we are still at 50% Off for general items and 30% Off for Candy. My guesstimate for Christmas Clearance in this area to drop to 70% was for Monday, 12/30, however- things seem to be moving a long at a fast pace this year- so perhaps we may see the next drop as early as tomorrow.  You can still access the Christmas Clearance Prep list HERE for inspiration on what to look for in the coming days, but keep in mind some of the items on this list disappear early on like paper towels etc. You may also want to sort the blog by clearance to see what else you can watch for and check the comments on these posts to see what others have found.

If you are headed out to Target today- as you know – today is the day that many items will be already marked at 50% Off. Clearance will vary from store to store- some stores may have practically nothing, while others may have lots of stuff left. Most of the usual Holiday items- decorations, ornaments, giftwrap, stocking stuffers and more should all be at 50% Off today. But there are lots of seasonal grocery and household items to watch for now that it is after Christmas too.


Some of the seasonal grocery items will be 50% Off, except for bagged candy which will be at 30% Off. Surprisingly we still have the $1.50/2 M&M’S chocolate candies 9.34-oz. or larger Target Coupon x1/11 and the –$2/3 Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, Milky Way, Dove, bites or 3 Musketeers Bags 7-11.5 oz available to print. There is a cartwheel too, but it will not apply since it excludes clearance. Other select food items stay at 30% at first too. food

Kelley found lots of stuff at her store – it was well stocked although most of her holiday household items were already gone- that kind of stuff – paper towels, napkins, storage bags etc always seems to go fast. But some of you may still get lucky. I have quite a large list going of several possibilities in grocery, and other areas to look for along with coupon matchups on my Christmas Clearance Prep list HERE.

Although much of the holiday items – including grocery & household will get moved to the back- its always a good idea to check the regular grocery & household aisles and endcaps for these items too. And don’t forget to peek in on the dollar spot. Kelley found all Black Triangle at 50% off, much of it Christmas.


Casey also let me know that the Up&Up Holiday Jumbo pack diapers in the baby department were ringing up 50% Off down to $3.49, and the holiday wipes were also 50% Off down to .79.  There are also 5% Off Up & Up Baby Diapers & 5% Off Up & Up Baby Wipes Target Cartwheels to save even more. This may be hit or miss- since Casey only found it at one of her stores. Kelley’s were clearly marked as well- but it certainly can’t hurt to give them a check at the scanners if you don’t see signage. -Thanks Casey!

As far as the next drop to 70% Off goes, there is no clear set schedule. Last year some of you went as early as 12/30, so you may want to start keeping a close eye as early as the 29th just in case. Happy Hunting folks! :)
