Remember clearance and price reductions can be very random, but I wanted to give you all a heads up on two things you may want to look for at your stores thanks to a couple readers!
FEBREZE SET & REFRESH
Brenda J. was pretty surprised to find some Febreze Set & Refresh already being clearanced at her store for $2.08. It is always possible that special scents for Holidays are on the way and they need to make room, so keep an eye out at your store too, as these will be super cheap with a stack:
-.75/1 Febreze Set and Refresh Target Coupon 8-29-10 RP x10/15
-$1/1 Febreze Set & Refresh 8-29-10 P&G x9/30
PILLSBURY SWEET MOMENTS
Christine P was happy when she found Pillsbury Sweet Moments Brownie Bites on Price Cut at her store for $1.38. It was just the Brownie Bites, and it could be a fluke- but keep a lookout as there is a $1.50/1 Pillsbury Sweet Moments Coupon HERE that would make them FREE if you find the same! There was also a $1/1 Sweet Moments in the 09-12-10 GM and there is a $1/1 Sweet Moments HERE under zip 90210.
-Thanks so much to Brenda & Christine for the heads up! Hope more can find these great deals too!
Sorry about the lack of clearance reporting last week. Things were VERY hectic around here last week, but I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails I wanted to share, plus a few clearance finds of my own I found on Sunday. Please remember clearance varies from store to store, there is no guarantee you will find the same, but it’s a nice heads up in case you want to keep an eye out.
In my own travels, I found lots of Snacks on clearance near the outskirts of where the Halloween section is now starting to come together. Sunmaid raisins on clearance fown to $1.36 for a 6 pk. I also found Archer Farms trial size Roasted Almonds marked down even further to .64 cents and the $1/2 Archer Farms Nuts or Trail Mix Target Coupon HERE does not exclude trial sizes.
I also found the Kellogg’s Yogos Fruit Snacks 6 ct Variety Packs marked down to $1.18, and there is a
$1/1 Kellogg’s Fruit Snacks coupon HERE which makes them super cheap. Also saw assorted 3 pks of Dentyne, and Dentyne Ice marked down to $1.68. There is a $2/4 and a $3/6 Dentyne (& other asst gum & candy) in the 08-08-10 SS to use to get a good deal. (*NOTE- be careful with those coupons as they do not scan in for the full amount and you must have it corrected.)
MERONA WALLETS: Chrissy found Merona wallets on clearance for 30% off. These might be worth keeping an eye out for as the prices may drop further at a moments notice and the $2/1 Merona Accessory coupon is still managing to survive HERE. -Thanks TallyMomma
AXE BONUS PACKS: I have seen several comments and a few people have e-mailed that they found AXE gift sets marked as low as 50% off down to $3.48. You can use the $1.50/1 Axe Gift Set coupon from the 8-1-10 Red Plum to get these at a really good price. They come with the Detailer and the Body Wash, so after coupon it is like paying $1 each per item. -Thanks so much Cyndi C., Pia, and Amanda O!
CHI-CHIs: Meredith found Chi-chi’s 10 ct white corn tortillas now 50% off down to .48 cents. She used the $1 off any Two CHI-CHI’s Products to get 2 free- but again- you will have to watch your coupons, as it will scan for .48 cents enstead of recognizing it is $1/2 and not 1. -Thanks Meredith!
TOYS, OUTDOOR & BACK TO SCHOOL: Lots and lots of school supplies and summer clearance including backpacks, scissors, swim goggles and more up to 75% off. % off. Target Spiral Notebooks have been found down to .07 cents, Backpacks down to $2.48 and more. SOme Toy Story toys, Liv Doll Sets, some Barbie and lots of outdoor pooltype toys are something to keep an eye on. -Thanks Saving the Family Money, Fabulous Daily Deals & SuperCouponLady!
SCOTCH FUR FIGHTER: Theresa L. found the Scotch Fur Fighters on clearance at her store for $2.48, and there was a new coupon for $2/1 Scotch Fur Fighter Hair Remover in the 09-12-10 SS she used to get it for .48 cents. -Thanks Theresa!
A FEW OTHER TIDBITS…
NEW TARGET INSERT COUPONS: Virginia of My Coupon Hunter let me know that she now has all 5 new Target store coupons from the inserts this past weekend in her inventory, including the $3/1 Glade coupons, so you can visit her HERE to place an order. She actually has lots of Target coupons in stock right now, and you can sort her site by Target coupons on the left- to make them easier to find.
FANCY FEAST APPETIZERS: Sheryl C. wrote in that she found Fancy Feast Appetizers marked down to .63 each. These normally sell for $1.27 so that is quite a drop if you can find the same. There are no coupons that I know of at the moment though, but let me know if I overlooked one. – Thanks Sheryl!
TARGET NOTEBOOK COUPONS: Theresa V. and Karen G. let me know that spiral notebooks with the Target Coupons in them have recently been spotted in some of the Target Stores in their areas. If you are in Farmington Hills, MI or El Paso, Texas you might want to keep your eye out for them. Realize that they could be gone in a flash, but if you have found them in your area, and want to leave a comment as to where and when it might help someone who is searching for them. - Thanks Theresa and Karen!
You can also check out the CLEARANCE CORNER section of the new Totally Target Forum to see what others have been finding, or leave a comment below if you want to let us know something we should be looking for!
Some of you may have noticed there is no Thursday Bragging Spot today. That is because I have some exciting news – Totally Target now has a forum! I have wanted to do this for so long, wanted to have a place where you could post links to your shops any day of the week, as well as a place for trading with one another or to reach out to one another through private messaging.
I hope this news excites you too, and while I know it will take some time to figure out and get comfortable with posting and using the forum, I have two moderators who are ready and willing to help. Margaret (username meltedpenguin) will be the mod for the trades section of the forum, and Karen, (username karenk) will be the mod for all other areas. Be sure to check out the Welcome area first to get started, as it will give you some general guidelines and some notes on how to take advantage of private messaging.
For those of you who are utilizing the Trades Page, please note that as of September 15th, it will be discontinued. Feel free to start using the forum now for your trades, and to re-post any requests you have on the current Trades Page over to the Trades section of the new forum.
So head over to the Totally Target Forum to become a member and start exploring! Enjoy!
In addition to the coupons you can find for Chi-Chi’s Products on coupons.com (you can find them at zip 63366), Chi-Chi’s has added these same coupons to their site.
The Chips and tortillas have been spotted on clearance, so the $1/2 Any Chi-Chi’s Products is especially nice to have on hand if you find them lowered at your store too. Just head over to the Chi-Chi’s site HERE to print yours.
-Thanks Jessica’s Coupons!
Welcome to the Thursday Bragging Spot! A place where you can show off your Target Shops and Clearance Finds with a link or a comment. If you have a blog feel free to link up to your Target Shop below or even if you don’t- feel free to comment and let us know how you did this week. You can always upload your photo to a free service like photobucket too and put the link to the photo in a comment describing your shop.
Although it is amazing to see someone’s haul of a major shopping trip, bragging rights, in my opinion anyway, belong to anyone who took time and effort to save money, and can even be just for one item you got a great deal on. Ann-Marie sent me an e-mail, very excited and proud of a find she scored at Target completely for free. She found the Air Wick Ultra Frshmatic on further clearance down to $3.34 and used a $4/1 Air Wick Freshmatic Ultra i-motion Starter Kit from the 08-08-10 SS, to get it completely free! And I say, that is one heck of a brag.
I guess my point is that while I and many of you love seeing those amazing shopping trips, those of you who are just starting out or don’t have a large coupon collection yet to show off a pile of goods at a savings of 50% or more should still be proud of whatever it is that you bought that you took the time to clip a coupon and save yourself some money.
Couponing takes effort, time, organization, thought and preparation. The end result is you saving your family money, and no matter how big or small the savings, make sure you give yourself a big pat on the back. You have plenty of time to grow your coupon collection, learn, get better organized and be better prepared at saving money in the store. For many people, including myself, “Saving My Family Money” is my part time job title. Your savings is just like income, your earnings being the money that did not leave your home that might have, had you not taken the time to clip your coupons and wisely pair them with sales. Like any job, it takes time to get better and faster at it, so don’t get discouraged and keep on plugging away at it, it does get easier!
A COUPLE INTERESTING CLEARANCE COMMENTS I CAUGHT ON THE BLOG
I know many of you, as well as myself, enjoy reading the comments on the clearance posts to see what others have found. And I want to send out a big thanks to all of you who comment. I have a little mini notebook I write everything down in, and there is ongoing list made of clearance finds from the readers. While we all know clearance is hit or miss, many times I might not even check that section of the store normally and thanks to several comments made on Totally Target in the past, I and others I am sure, have scored some wonderful finds- so Thank You to all of you who share your awesome finds with myself and other readers in the comments!
Here’s what I scribbled down in my notebook that I found on the blog yesterday in the comments:
Tammy: Maybelline New York Mascara double packs (waterproof and regular) regularly 7.99 marked down to 1.98. I used $1.00 off coupons and got them for .98 cents each.
Christina: I found 50-count boxes of Ziploc Evolve sandwich bags on an endcap clearance for 44cents. I used two .40/1 coupons and two $1/2 coupons to score six boxes of FREE Zippies!!
Nadine: Today I found packs of the Pampers Cynthia Rowley cruisers diapers on clearance. They were $6.49 a pack, which is even cheaper than Target diapers! Plus, I had a $1 off Pampers coupon.
Kerstin: My target was packed with clearance… Kleenex 3 packs, Puff Tissues, Cynthia Rowley Diapers (50% off), Off Bug Spray, Outdoor was 30%, Pools we’re 75%.
Tiffani: I got a Emerson compact fridge with dry erase door for $22.25 today!
So be sure to read the comments and share with us too, who knows what you might find that you may not have looked for if someone hadn’t mentioned it! -Thanks so much everyone!
-Here’s the linky folks- let me know how y’all did this week!
Keep in mind clearance can vary greatly from store to store, there is no guarantee you will find the same or that all stores will clearance the same things on the same schedule. It’s just a heads up in case you want to take a look for the same.
Lori found Kellogg’s Yogo’s on clearance for 30% off down to $1.18 near the back to school section. There was a $1/2 Kellogg’s Fruit Snacks in this past Sunday’s 08-29-10 RP which will make them just .68 cents each if you find the same. -Thanks Lori!
Tom found outdoor pool type items including dive sticks, water toys and goggles on clearance for 30% off at his S. Florida store. I’ll have to check on that at mine, as I would love to pick up a pair of spare goggles and a few more dive sticks for Austin! -Thanks Tom!
Stephanie found Tom’s of Maine Moisture Body Bars were on clearance for 30% off down to $2.12. She used a .50/1 Tom’s of Maine Target Coupon HERE and her $1/1 Tom’s of Maine from the All You September issue to pick one up for .62 cents. -Thanks Stephanie!
Lots of you have been finding Febreze Home Collection products on clearance. Mitchell found a bunch on clearance at his store including Flameless Luminaries for $7.48. There is also a MIR HERE for a $10 Rewards Card when you buy $20+ products from the Febreze Home Collection Series.
If you find the clearance too, here’s an idea to make this a great deal:
Buy 3 Febreze Flameless Luminaries on clearance for $7.48 = $22.44
-$12 (use (3) $4/1 Febreeze Flameless Luminary Starter 8-29-10 PG
=$10.44 -$10 Rewards Card wyb $20+ Home Collection HERE
=.44 for 3 or just .15 each after coupons and rewards card
-Thanks Mitchell of FrugalFinders for the deal and pic!
Lily P. wrote in that she found two-packs of Suave Conditioner (30 oz bottles) in Ocean Breeze for $1.75. She said it was this particual variety only, but after the .75/1 Target coupon HERE, she paid $1 for two 30 oz bottles. -Thanks Lily!
Anyone find anything great on clearance lately? Feel free to comment below and let us know!
Hey all- I caught a couple comments and e-mails of some things I wanted to tell you about. Remember- clearance can vary greatly from store to store, but it can’t hurt to look for the same, as these are nice deals if you can find the same.
AXE BONUS PACKS GIFT CARD DEAL
Tracy spotted the Axe Bonus Packs that are on a Buy 2 Get a $5 Gift Card Deal on clearance at her store. (You can read more about this Deal along with matchups on the Special Deals Page) This deal is only set to go until tomorrow, 8/28, so you don;t have much time left. But if you spot the clearance too, and if you have the right coupons you can probably end up picking up 2 Axe Bonus Packs for around $3 for both after coupons and Gift Card. -Thanks Tracy!
MARIE’S POTATO SALAD DRESSING
Kingsley found Marie’s Potato Salad Dressing at the Apex, NC store for 99 cents. There were $1 off peelies on the lid making them free. There is also a $1/1 Any Marie’s Dressing Printable coupon too if you spot the same and can’t find a peelie. -Thanks Kingsley!
COLGATE TOOTHPASTE WITH TARGET COUPONS
Remember my post on the Colgate Bonus Packs that came with $10 in Target Coupons? Well Laura in Northern California found them on clearance for $1.48. The coupons inside them don’t expire until 12/31, so it may be a good deal, depending on what coupons you have to buy your first one with. Inside you will find a $1/1 Colgate Total Target coupon, which you can use with another MQ to buy another even cheaper. There’s a list of the coupons included and a picture of what the bonus packs look like on my previous post. -Thanks Laura!

Aside from a Previous $5 Gift Card used toward this week’s purchases, Tanya managed to only spend $3.73 out of pocket for everything you see here and you can see the details of her transaction HERE. -Thanks so much for sharing Tanya!
INTERESTED IN BEING FEATURED ON THE BRAGGING SPOT?
I get several e-mails from bloggers and readers about their trips every week and inquiring about being featured on the bragging spot. If you are interested in being featured, you will need to e-mail me by Wednesday afternoon. If you are a reader, I will need a picture and the details of your shop. If you are a blogger, I will need an e-mail containing a link to a recently published post featuring your shopping trip. The post should contain a picture of your trip and 90% of the time I will choose someone who documents a current week’s trip. Bloggers who detail their trips in their posts (what coupons they used, what they spent etc,) are more likely to be chosen. Please keep in mind I only choose one blogger or reader each week, so feel free to submit to me weekly, and if you are not chosen, please use the linky found below to share your trip with others.
-Here’s the linky folks- let me know how y’all did this week!
Clearance finds on school supplies are starting to appear in stores, especially where school has already started. These items usually sell pretty quickly once they are on clearance, so you might want to start looking for the clearance tags. If school has not yet started in your area, you are probably in for a bit of a longer wait. Michelle snapped this picture in her store and let me know she found most of the items in the back to school section for 30% off, including wooden rulers, pencils, notebooks, binders and more. -Thanks so much Michelle!
Here’s a few e-mails I have gotten from the readers on some recent clearance finds. Please remember clearance can vary greatly from store to store and there is no guarantee you will find the same.
Meredith found Clorox Stain Fighter & Color Booster 32 ct on clearance for 50% off at her store. It was originally $9.47 and now marked down to $4.74. There is a $1/1 Clorox 2 Stain Fighter & Color Booster in the 08-22-10 SS. Unfortunately the only printable I can find is for the liquid, but an even better deal will be if you can find the $2/1 Manufacturer coupon peelies like the one shown in the picture that Meredith found attached to the bag. If you find the clearance & Peelie, it will be as low as $2.74 for a 32 ct Bag. -Thanks Meredith!
PURINA ONE SMART BLEND DOG FOOD
Katrina found very large bags of Purina One SmartBlend marked 15% Off. Something to watch for for a further drop since there is a stack available. While you can catch a freebie on the 6 oz. SmartBlend Bags (they sell for $1), not all stores carries them:
-$1 off Purina ONE SmartBlend Dry dog food or Dry cat food Target Coupon PRINT x9/5
-$2/1 Purina One Brand Dry Dog Food, any size/variety 8-15-10 SS x9/15
GLAD TRASH BAGS
There has been quite a bit of clearance on Trash Bags it seems lately, including Hefty & Up&Up Brand, and now Glad seems to be the latest brand to join the trend. ALthough the printable Target coupon is now gone and expired, look for peelies on boxes. There are several different coupon values including $1/1, and I saw several boxes at my store on an endcap marked 15% Off. Something to watch for a further drop.
I feel like the clearance on Air Fresheners is never ending. Which is nice, thanks to lots of coupon coupons on Febreze, Glade & Air Wick. Be sure to look in both the regular aisles and on the endcaps. On Sunday I saw a whole new round of Febreze Home Collection on clearance, and straight to 50% off. *If you are looking for Air Freshener coupons for items mentioned, check the Coupon Database to see where you can find it or if there is a link to a printable available.
~~~~~~~~~~OTHER TIDBITS FROM MY INBOX~~~~~~~~~~

Nathalie noticed at her store that certain types of Herbal Essences Shampoo & Conditioner are still marked at $2.50 regular price. They are from the Herbal Essences “Loves” line.
