The big half-yearly 70% off toy clearance at Target should be in the next few weeks. Last year it happened on Thursday, July 26, so I’m predicted it will be within that range. The Mall 205 store in SE Portland had tons of clearance anywhere between 30-50% off. Below you’ll get a sneak peek at the items I spotted. We will try to update our Facebook page with reader reports as to which stores have already been marked down when the times comes.
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. Here’s what you might find in the Target toy clearance.
Baby Alive, Hello Kitty and Cutie Pops
Disney Princess, My Little Pony & Dora
Lalaloopsy, Dora Mermaid & Playdoh
