My Target holiday stuff went 90% off today. My boys and I made it there around 9 a.m. after calling the store this morning to see if it was 75% off or 90% off. Not much left, and not a roll of wrapping paper to be found. My plan to give it to neighbors next year was foiled. BUT…
AND this week only, they have a special 40th edition of UNO for $1. (in the toy section~I had to ask an employee where they were)
So, I thought how cute would it be to package them together somehow with a fun ribbon, your favorite sugar cookie recipe or mix, and note saying, “hope your family creates fun memories together this holiday season, blah blah blah, etc. etc. etc.”
Another favorite thing to do is scour the store for random holiday things that sometimes the employees don’t know are holiday, but they still ring up 90% off:
red flameless candles: $1.40 (in candle aisle) perfect for Valentines!
Smith & Hawken paperwhie bulbs in a beautiful silver planter .99 (smith & hawken aisle)
Cocoa goldfish .21 a bag (snack cracker aisle)
Scotch gift wrap .40 for a 2 pack roll (regular tape aisle..not Christmas in any way, but they ring up 90% off)
Christmas packing tape .30 a roll (tape aisle)
also check paper towels, napkins, paper plates, etc for hidden goodies, check the book section for Christmas books, pajamas in the kids and adults, etc. and scan scan scan
Now of course, every Target it different, and yours may not have any of this stuff, but if it has a holiday design of any kind, scan it on the red scanners on the end of the aisles and you may have luck! They usually only stay 90% off for 2 days, then they give everything to the Goodwill.
If you’re heading to Target anyway (ahem…aren’t you almost out of milk or tp or something) it may be worth a look.
Girl, what are you doing buying more STUFF? Go clean out your storage room already!
I’m working on it!! I’ll post pics of some progress…..later.
