target 90% off halloween + country living clearance at kmart!

07 November 2011

My Target Halloween went 90% off this morning..wahoo! So, you know I’m a bit obsessed with urns. How could I pass this up?? (it’s big! even though it doesn’t look like it in the pic) I’m thinking I could turn the skull to other side and spray paint right over the red jewels..what do you think? A $25 urn for $2.50?

Also, it’s always good to go strolling through the regular aisles and look for halloweenish looking items. The 2pk puffs tissues were .29 and the up&up tissues were .13 Just sitting there on the shelf with the regular tissues, but I scanned them and they were marked down with the regular halloween stuff. Love those red scanners…

while I was picking up some rakes at Kmart, I saw that they are clearancing out their country living furniture! The bench was $55.99, the 3 drawer dresser was $69.99 (still available on-line and you can search your store as well) I first saw the bench at Kirsten’s and Courtney’s blogs.bench 1
and this chair was $59.99. I sat in it, it has no comfort whatsoever, but she sure is pretty to look at…look at it at Caitlin Creer Interiors.

I didn’t need them right now, but maybe one of you have been keeping an eye on them?
Happy Monday!


  1. Good to know!  I was wondering when Target would put Halloween stuff on sale... I was poking around yesterday but noticed no big discounts.  Thanks for to pick up (and then pack away) some spooky stuff...

  2. I heart after Halloween deals. Good job..nothing better than saving a TONNE of money! YAY to sales!

  3. K-mart is not that close to my home, so I don't think of checking out their sales. Looks like they have some good deals. 

  4. Oooo I'll have to make a Target run!! That urn is a fabulous find- I would absolutely spray paint that sucker and just face the skull to the wall.

    Melissa, thanks for the Target clearance tip today!  While I was out and about doing errands today, I ran into Target and they had one urn left!  I snagged it, of course, and I'm so excited to use your tip to spray paint it and turn that ugly skull around so it won't be seen.  Thanks again for your tips!

  6. Thanks so much! I stocked up on tissues for our church's food pantry (which is supplied with home essentials as well)! I also picked up a few fun dog costumes for just a few dollars total. You're the best!

    Yay, Robin! Thank goodness there is only a skull on the one side :)

  8. I have 2 of those country living chairs in my living room and I love them!! You're right, no comfort but they are so cute and I get quite a few comments on them. I sure didn't get them at the price they are offered now, dang it! I paid $160 or so for each of them. Grrrr....thanks for the heads up on the target discounts, too. Maybe I'll have to track down that bench to match my chairs :)

    That is wonderful! Glad you had good luck for a good cause.

  10. Thanks for the heads that bench! Was in Target this morning with my friend and she scored a Halloween tee for one of her kids for just $0.59!!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
