So we have all been talking about this for weeks, and it seems like this is finally the week where you will see or have already seen the big push on toy clearance. It has been dragging on for weeks and weeks now but with only some items marked 75% Off. The big drop usually happens the same day of the week your store typically does toy markdowns.
So my store for example, usually does markdowns in the toy department on Thursday mornings, so I am expecting it to happen tomorrow, but they have been known on occasion to wait for a Friday as well.
If your store usually marks down on Wednesdays, some of you may have had some luck today and I’d love to hear all about it if you did. I have gotten a few emails already reporting 75% Off on many more items like Star Wars, Barbie, Polly Pocket, Matchbox, V-tech, Fisher Price, Zhu-Zhu Pets, Thomas the Tank, Furry Frenzies, UBuild Games, Toy Story Toys, Flick Trix, Girl Gourmet, Easy-Bake, Card & Board Games, Tron items, Mighty Beanz & much more at 75% Off.
Sara, who follows both major clearance sales for Christmas and Summer also found many toys 75% Off at one of her stores today. The picture above is a glance at what she found today and you can check out her post with more on what she found today HERE.
For those who were disappointed and found no major markdowns today- I would get ready and be there early tomorrow &/or Friday if you have interest. And don’t always just go by the signs- if they say 50%, take a look at quite a few of the stickers to be be sure- and remember- the price check scanner is your friend! Good luck folks- may the force be with you! If you have already had it hit at your store today let me know what you found- I can’t believe it but I am going to miss it this year. But that’s OK- I think my haul at the after-Christmas sale last year will more than make up for it.

One thing for some of us to look forward to is the upcoming Tax Free holidays in several states. It’s a little early, but Mississippi’s tax free days start as early as July 29th, so here’s a head’s up. While some of you live in states that have tax-free clothing year-round, for those that don’t it’s a nice holiday.
Hopefully this little roundup helps you to plan ahead and take advantage if it is available in your state. Listed below are dates along with links for additional information and if you have a State link to add to the list, please let me know.

Wow the mailers are out in full force. Here’s another new one that Samantha just found in her mailbox- “Up & Up: Basically Awesome”. This Mailer contains 6 coupons inside all for Up & Up products. For those of you lucky enough to find one in your mailboxes- it means FREE Up & Up Pantiliners (around .89 Regular Price) & cheap All Purpose Cleaner with Bleach (around $1.37 regular price). It’s a nice little mailer and I hope many of you find it in your mailboxes!
As always for those of you wondering– there is no 100% fool-proof way to get a home mailer. Sometimes having created a registry may help, or spending on a REDcard helps, or filling a prescription, and the list of theories goes on and on. But none of these things are a 100% guarantee you will start receiving them and unfortunately there is no definite mailing list to get on.

There is quite a few insert coupons available for Garnier right now, but if you did not get them in your local papers, here’s a printable you can grab. Just visit the Garnier Site HERE and take the super short Fructis Hair Quiz which will end on a page where you will be given the option to print a coupon valid for $1/1 Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner or Styling Full-Size Product. The smaller sized Fructis Shampoo & Conditioner & stylers are included in the sale this week through 7/3. Prices started at $2.69 for me, but I have seen a few comments come through about finding Garnier on clearance too.
