I’m Making a List, and Checking it Twice…

Each year, an assortment of all kinds of products that have holiday or winter packaging inevitably go on clearance. Every year I start gathering a list of these products that we may have coupons for and do a matchup. While there is no guarantee EVERYTHING on the list will get clearanced- there is a good chance that many will. The day after Christmas is when many items will go 50% Off. So for that reason – I am only going to include coupons that will not expire before or on Christmas.

Please feel free to leave a comment if you think of something not on the list that has any sort of special holiday or winter packaging that you know will likely go on clearance after Christmas and that there may be coupons for.

I will be continually updating this list and will put a button on the sidebar for easy access to it. Hopefully it will grow even larger in the coming days & weeks with your help. Together, we can help each other be well-prepared for the bargains to be had once these items go on clearance. I will keep updating it with any new coupons that come out or anything you guys can think of in the comments! Not all prices are listed, but for those that are – it will be for regular price to give you an idea of what the percentage off may be once it goes on clearance.

  1. This is my favorite feature of your site, thank you so much for putting these lists together for the holidays. We look forward to the day after Christmas shopping each year and this makes it so much better! Thank you thank you thank you!!

  2. LOL cool list! Love it, and I also love the “Last Chance Target deals”. A must-have for a busy person like me who’s always chasing sales by its tail.

  3. Thanks for the list. On a side note, don’t you love how the expiration dates of all holiday packaging items is ALWAYS the month BEFORE next year’s holiday? LOL!

    Also, I don’t know if they have them again this year (they probably do), but the red & green white chocolate Nestle chips are GREAT if you find them on clearance after Christmas. Separate them and dip pretzels. Red for Valentines Day and Green for St. Patrick’s Day. People don’t often expect gifts on those days & they’re always pleased when they get a surprise in February or March.

  4. This list is great! Thank you so much. I missed out on a lot of things last year. Now that I’m a seasoned couponer, I am definitely going to be ready this time.

  5. On the dixie holiday plates, there are coupons inside for $1/2 ultra plates, $1/2 plates, theres a coupon for bowls and the cups as well. So use the mq for $1/2 and the tq $1/2 in the package of plates makes them $1.99 each.

  6. Here are some more ideas: keebler cookies, rice krispies treats, pop tarts, pringles, jello pudding (boxes) of holiday flavors, kellogg’s winter packaging rice krispies, captain crunch Christmas crunch cereal, market pantry granola bars with the candy cane/peppermint pieces, market pantry holiday shapes fruit snacks, up and up holiday tissues or soap, threshold holiday linens and pillows, were there any holiday flavors of chex mix? and don’t forget the tape and scissors!

    Love this list every year. I had just started writing down some ideas for myself to start hunting coupons!


  7. glade , Febreze, air wick etc.. holiday scents are marked down at my store already..(15%) Glade still producing $5 GC Makes the glade deal a little sweeter..

    pillsbury holiday theme ready to bake cookies marked down $1.72
    various holiday tablewear, and home decor also marked down

  8. Also, Libby’s Pumpkin bread kits are $4.99. Waiting for them to go on clearance after Christmas.
    There is a .50 coupon from RP 10/28 ( exp. 1/31).

  9. Went today and had a blast. Found a ton of stuff since the items were in the regular aisles and not sectioned off by themselves for everyone to see. Found Christmas tree shaped snack cakes for $.81 a box, Christmas boxes of goldfish for $1.54 and other stuff like Christmas themed pop tarts and rice crispies in Christmas themed boxes that weren’t on sale at all.

  10. Kelsey- This may be the same Kelsey….but just in case…..Looking back on the blog at last year, Kerry reported 70% off on Dec. 31st and 90% off on Jan. 5th. But that’s just an estimate for this year since Target has been doing things a little bit differently lately. But as soon as Kerry knows, she’ll be posting! HTH

  11. Oh my gosh I have to tell y’all my husband went with me after Christmas we were late we got to target at 7:30 but I was still able to get great deals, we bought napkins, holiday pine cat litter for $4.88 with a peelie on it for two free cans of cat food value $1.18, the parchment paper after $1 off coupon .49 such a cool deal, paper towels,the cookie mix for .60 after coupon, the nuts, and several targets later I found the glad containers. Yes do check the regular aisles for holiday packaging that’s how I found the glad containers. And we also found out every target is different at one store the cat litter was even cheaper it was $3.78 oh and there is a target coupon for $5 off when you but 2 cartons of cat litter. We have had so much fun going to different targets in such of more Christmas goodies, great list couldn’t have done it without you!

  12. Just wanted to share a comment from Target employee on Dec. 27… I told her was sad that I couldn’t make it shopping on Dec. 26. She said, “Oh, you came on the perfect day… The aisles were so crowded yesterday we couldn’t get clearance stuff out. We are just getting it out today… There’s boxes in back we are just getting out.” And she had 2 boxes full of Bounty paper towels and napkins she had just opened… i got a huge cart full of stuff, including cat litter, glad containers (don’t forget Ibotta app… I made 0.49 cents on that one…), glad press and seal, 4 bounty napkins, 1 bounty paper towel, Up and Up kleenex, kleenex hand wipes, international delight, Oreos with red creme and white fudge oreos (both in regular aisles), Betty Crocker and Pillsbury cookie mixes (regular aisle), holiday toll house morsels… Huge haul of stuff! Spent $89, got 1 $5 GC with Arm and Hammer Cat litter, and saved $140… What a FUN DAY and THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR LIST!

  13. The Target where I live finally reduced all their Christmas candy down to 50% off. (Most of the good stuff was still at just 30% off as recent as last night.) I picked up a few items that I had coupons for, but there’s still a ton left, so have a feeling they may end up reducing it even further.

  14. Accidentally discovered peppermint frosting in the can at 50% off so .94 each while shelf tag said sale $1.55. Got two but might get more if it drops again. All of the gift sets are 15% off except the Axe which are still full price today here in Texas.

  15. This is great! I wish I had seen this BEFORE I did my clearance shopping. LOL! Oh Well, I’ll be on the look out for next years list!

  16. Got the BC Gingerbread Cookie mix for .62, like Lisa, but the bagged holiday candy is still not budging from 50% off.

    What surprised me is the Christmas blend coffee for both Archer Farms and Starbucks has not been reduced at all – still full price.

  17. Pringles Cinnamon Sugar rang up for $.62/can. No clearance sticker, just scan them and see. My boys tried them over Christmas and they love them.

  18. They just reduced all of Nestle Coffee-Mate’s holiday flavors 30% off (including the Egg Nog flavor), both sizes. If you’ve still got the .75/1 Internet coupon that was available, you should be able to grab yourself a great deal.

  19. Bagged holiday candy in at least one of my local Targets is finally down to 70% off, but not a lot left.

  20. Target is 90% off TODAY! I scored over $150 worth of product for $14 w/out coupons. I wasn’t going to the store, but stopped because my boys had to potty. I ended up checking out the Christmas clearance and sure enough 90% off an so much left over to chose from. Sooo pumped up!
