Well I can say that my SuperTarget tricked me again. Their toys did not drop to 70% Off today, but a little Target around 5 miles away did. So instead of sitting there drooling over the 3+ aisles of toy clearance at 30 & 50%- I headed over to the little Target to see what I could find. They were pretty wiped out unfortunately by the time I got there, but I did pick up a few things.

Everything I bought was 70% Off except for the LEGO  sets, which I bought at 50% Off. I spent $62 for what would have been $172 worth of toys- or like saving right around 65% overall. And I have a few things to put away for Austin’s Birthday and a couple things for the Gift Closet. I can definitely say last year was MUCH better for me, it was actually amazing – but I guess you can’t luck out like that every year.

It’s also getting a little tougher to shop for Austin as he gets older, but I may just have to hit my SuperTarget tomorrow morning. Not sure if I am up for a Toy Clearance Take Two, but we’ll see. I hope those of you who found the drop today did well and had some luck! And if you didn’t drop today- I will cross my fingers for you that tomorrow will be your turn.

Well folks- I am out the door! I am pretty sure my store will drop to 70% Off on a large majority of their Toys today so I am headed out to see what I can find! A few of you reported finding the drop to 70% on most toys yesterday- but I suspect many stores will either go today or tomorrow.

I really hope everyone has some luck and can manage to grab a few nice things! I’ll let you know how it goes!

Evenflo has come out with several new coupons that you can print on their site HERE. There are coupons for SimplyGo Electric  Breast Pumps, Disposable Nursing Pads and more. One of these coupons is valid for $3/2 Evenflo PurelyComfi Bottles 3-packs. There has been lots of clearance starting to happen in baby- including bottles.

So if you are in need- keep an eye out for the Evenflo PurelyComfi TruVent 3-pack bottles. While clearance can vary greatly from store to store- Marissa spotted them for 50% Off down to $6.34, which makes for a nice deal after coupon if you find the same.

-Thanks Marissa!

POSSIBLE NEW LOW PRICE ON PEPPERIDGE FARM TIMTAM COOKIES

You may want to scan these too- they were ringing up $1.40 for Kara in Michigan. (-Thanks Kara)

YOCRUNCH SHORT TERM PRICE CUT

UPDATE ON TOY CLEARANCE
Although there have already been a few reports of stores dropping the majority of their toys to 70% off, I believe most of us still have yet to see it happen including me.  I am still pretty convinced that it will happen this week for me, possibly as early as tomorrow. 

The only thing that troubles me, is that last year it seemed things were much more consolidated into one clearance area.  This year I feel like the clearanced toys are still all over the place, on endcaps, in aisles, etc.  But maybe there just hasn’t been the urgency to move them if their new stock hasn’t completely come in yet. That’s just a guess and while there’s a chance it could be next week, I am still placing my bets on this week and I suggest keeping a close watch on it just in case.

OTHER UPDATES FOR THIS WEEK & BEYOND…
International Delight Creamer as Low as 52¢ Thru 1/14

Jan 092012

Clearance can vary greatly from store to store – but keep an eye out for the Sonicare Essence Toothbrushes that were a Target Exclusive this year. The most noticeable thing to look for is the red ribbon in the corner. Even if they are not stickered- I would price check just to be sure. Monica found them at 50% Off down to $19.98. There are 2 choices of coupons you can clip and have on hand just in case you find them too…

-$10/1 Philips Sonicare Rechargeable Toothbrush 01-08-12 SS
-$10/1 Philips Sonicare Rechargeable Toothbrush 11-20-11 SS

You may also be able to submit for the $10 MIR on Philips Sonicare Rechargeable Toothbrush excluding Xtreme model in the 11-20-11 SS x1/31/12 which would make this toothbrush as low as FREE after coupon and rebate if you find the same clearance deal at your store.

-Thanks for the pic & heads up to Monica!

The holiday clearance is now starting to move behind us but there’s lots of other discounts going on at Target. Here’s a rundown of what I, Kelley & others have seen clearanced. Remember- clearance can vary greatly from store to store- there is no guarantee you will find the same or for the same discount. But I try & list specific varieties, prices & other details when I can, since not everything gets stickered and sometimes it’s worth a quick scan to check.

Well today seems to be a much better day for me. The blog seems to be back on track and loading fine now, and this morning I got visual confirmation of 90% Off Christmas at my store. I hope lots more of you found your stores at 90% Off today too. I headed out after a few morning posts and got there at around 10am to find 3 aisles of stuff to go through. :) I know many of you aren’t as lucky to have this much left- and I was very surprised to see so much left at my store.

They had done a thorough job of moving everything to the clearance aisles, so there was not much in the way of hidden finds for me. Although I did find a nice Happy New Year shirt for .80 cents and 2 other sleep shirts with Mickey & Minnie & Hello Kitty for .99 cents. Even though there was not much to be had in other parts of the store, I had lots of great Christmas stuff to choose from- all at 90% Off.

I got lots of wrapping paper, tissue, gift bags, bows, ribbon, stockings, a decorative wreath, some craft kits, Cars 2 Pez Dispensers for 29 cents, Tissue paper decorations, and more. I even found a stray Scotch Pop Up Tape Dispenser that scanned at .20 cents. :) I also got some great colorful garland that to me looked nothing like Christmas & I thought they would make great party decorations. At .60 cents each I could not leave them there. ;)

All together I spent $31.21 and my savings was $263.25. Even though I was very happy with my haul, I was very tempted to pop into another Target, but I resisted the urge. I have had my fun, I’m well-stocked for the next season and was thrilled that my store did in fact see 90% Off- even though I was told it wouldn’t. I hope lots more of you out there found 90% Off today too and had some luck!

Jan 052012

While I am glad to hear reports of 90% Off Christmas Clearance in cities in Connecticut, California, Maryland, Washington State, Texas, New Jersey and more, there are lots still stuck at 70% Off. After calling my store this morning and being told we were at 90% Off, I raced out of the house with a wet head in the cold, drove all the way to my store, just to see signs for 70% Off! I thought okay- there is still a chance – I’ll scan. But nope still at 70% Off.

As I got madder and madder at the person on the phone who told me it was 90% Off, I started second guessing myself- did they say definitely? I was so excited to just get there, that my rule of usually asking to be transferred to someone who could verify went out the window. So I wandered around Target a bit, defeated and depressed. I roamed into the Scissor aisle- trying to cheer myself up by buying a pair of Scotch precision Scissors- which were finally back in stock, and still ringing up at $1.50. It helped a little but not much.

I then decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and hopped on the phone with Kelley who was at her Target and in such a good mood from finding stuff at 90% Off. So instead of moping, I’m going to try and stay positive. I am happy for Kelley and those of you who did find 90% Off today even though many of you were told you would not. And hopefully, I still have a chance that my store and other Targets will go 90% Off tomorrow. All states/stores may not- but for now I am still hopeful.

I hope that those of you who saw the drop had some luck. Kelley did- and here’s what she found….

I found some great finds at 90 percent off! Turns out that sometimes you can find stuff on the shelves that has just been returned and lucky for me, I found most of them at 90% off! One of my biggest finds today included A Christmas Story Collector’s Series Pint Glass 4-Pack, regularly $19.99 marked down to $1.99! Another big find was the Philips Blue Rope Lighting 9ft, regularly $11.99 marked down to $1.19. I also found Vanity Fair Holiday Insulated Cups 10 pack, for 29 cents; an inital D Holiday Stocking, regularly $13 marked down to $1.30; lots of ribbon and bows, all between .30 and .40 cents; and Gel Clings for .20 cents each.

I found some really cute Holiday Pet Pajamas for my dog, Cappy, only 79 cents! Doesn’t she look cute? ;-) I also found holiday greeting cards, ornaments, beaded garland, jingle bells, candy canes & even Pepperidge Farm Cookies all marked down 90% off. I found the Pepperidge Farm Holiday Cookie Bites in the holiday section but the Ginger Family Cookie Collection was in the regular grocery section on an end cap with other Pepperidge Farm Cookies. There was no indication that they were on clearance – no stickers, signs or anything. Here’s where you have to hunt and scan!!! My total bill was only – drum roll please! – $16.07! My total savings $137.97!!

It was weird though that there was no wrapping paper at my store. I went to another Target yesterday and they had a whole aisle full. I may have to zip over there next to see if they are at 90% off. I also didn’t see any gift bags or tags and as far as stocking stuffers go, only a few boxes of Wonka Storybooks were left. Bagged Candy still sits at 50% off and some holiday candy is still sitting at 70% off. You’ll have to scan everything to see what’s what. The mini candy canes I got were 90% off. I hope some of you have as much fun and luck as I did!

Well, it seems the much anticipated and hoped-for 90% off holiday clearance has arrived at some stores!  While there is no guarantee it is at all stores, Kelley found Christmas marked down 90% at hers this morning and a quick call to my store reports the same. I know some of you have stores that are already bare, and those with items still left is mostly wrapping paper and ribbons and bags & tags- but be sure to look around everywhere for those hidden finds!

So, probably needles to say- I will be MIA for just a bit! Can you guess where I am going? ;-) I am chomping at the bit to see what I can find.  But I will be back after the hunt and I sure hope I & others have a little luck and get to report finding some treasures! Good luck everyone!

Alana commented about a nice find on the Lenticular Puzzles found in the toy department on the regular shelves. Kelley checked it out for me this evening and she found them- so I hope more of you out there can too. It seems that several (but definitely not all) of the Lenticular puzzles for $4.04 are not stickered or tagged as clearance but ringing up at $1.19. Kelley found a certain Star Wars, The Grinch & Barbie all scanning at $1.19.

Alana found others too- Disney Mickey’s Club House, The Cat in The Hat, and Cars 2. It’s a little tricky, because some of the puzzles are identical but have different bar codes – so you will have to check at the scanner to see if you can find any hidden goodies, especially since they are not stickered and aside from the Grinch, their are no obvious signs of them being a holiday item. Clearance can definitely vary by store but I hope you find them too if you have interest!

And if by chance we get our Christmas miracle tomorrow and clearance goes 90% Off - you may even find them cheaper! My fingers are crossed so tight they hurt! ;)

-Thanks for the heads up Alana!
