We all thought the big half-yearly 70% off toy clearance at Target would be last Thursday. Nope. So, we hope that it will be this Thursday, January 17. Mall 205 (Portland) had 3 aisles and Fairview has 2 aisles filled with clearance toys and games. We will try to update our Facebook page with reader reports as to which stores have already been marked down. Here are a few tips to navigate the clearance:
- Make a budget and a plan. Who are you buying gifts for? How many? How much can you spend?
- Leave the kids at home (if possible).
- SCAN, SCAN, SCAN (did you get that?). Prices are not always marked correctly so make sure you check the price each item at the end-of-the-aisle scanners.
- Be kind to others. There will probably be tons of people shopping along with you so remember that it’s just stuff (and most of it will be set up at garage sales later this summer :))!
Check other departments on end-caps and make sure to bring your coupon box just in case. Let us know what you’re finding and make sure to post on Facebook if your store has been marked 70% off.
