Target Trip 9/16: CLEARANCE!

After seeing several posts yesterday about some AWESOME clearance prices at Target on Frugality Is Free  (Link goes to homepage, scroll down to see them), I decided that I absolutely had to hit Target today.  Plus, I just kinda felt like getting out of the house.

I found all the same clearance prices that she had found at her store, and I was able to get a ton of useful things for very little money!

Here is everything I got today:

Total Shelf Price:  $133.33
Price Paid:  $35.79    73% Savings!!

The educational items in the dollar spot were all marked down to $0.30 each, so I was able to grab a ton of workbooks and flashcards that will help my daughter as she has just started Kindergarten and is learning how to read.
Also, you can see theDisney lunch containers and thermos sitting in the corner (Tangled and Tinkerbell).  Those were priced at $2.50 in the Dollar spot, and ringing up just $0.75 each.

I also picked up 20 packs of filler paper, 10 wide-ruled and 10 college-ruled.  These were marked down to just $0.18 per pack, so I thought that was a good stock up price!

I also took a look at the remaining backpacks that were 75% off, and I found this adorable shoulder bag marked down to just $5.24 (was $20.99).  This is going to be my new purse/diaper bag.  It's got plenty for room for snacks and water and activities in it as well, since it is meant to hold a laptop.  And you know, purple *is* my favorite color.  =)

I also picked up several planter pots that were marked down in the garden department.
The long ones were $1.87 each, marked down from $7.49.
The large ones were $1.37 each, marked down from $5.99.
The medium (green) ones were $0.62 each, marked down from $2.49.
The small ones were $0.37 each, marked down from $1.49.

I can't wait to do some gardening!

I also got myself a tank top that was $2.25 marked down from $9.00.

This is really all the shopping I did this week.  All we really needed from the store was milk, eggs, and bread, so I had my husband stop and grab those on his way home one day.

Did you have some great savings this week?  Leave a comment about them, or if you made a post about it, link it up below!

That Dollar Spot clearance sale is just awesome! I love everything you got, and I can see that you went clearance crazy like me:)

I would have loved to have picked up some of those big planters....but I forgot to even check today. You are going to be gardening in style.

I went to a different Target this morning, and I was excited to see that they had a bunch of workbooks and flashcards that the other store did not have. I also found the Shark pool that I had been looking for, which will make a great Christmas present for the future shark scientist in my family.

I did go a little crazy in the dollar bins, and I just realized I picked up 2 of the same book.

I completely forgot to go to the pool section. I knew there was something else I meant to check out! We need another pool!

I signed up for this Seeds Of the Month Club through BuyWithMe last year, so I have all of these seeds that I haven't planted yet, so I would really like to do a fall garden. I have some research to do, I guess! ;)

I went by Target today to look around. While I was looking at the clearance aisle I found a king size comforter set. It was regularly $100.00 but it had been marked down to $25.00. I was so excited cause we were in desperate need of a new one!! This has been one of my best buys here of late.

that's a really great price for a comforter!

Amanda, don't you have two kids:) I picked up two of the same of 1 book too, but I have one son in 3rd grade and one in kindergarten, so they will both be used.

Of course, my oldest son has plenty of homework to deal with at the moment. We played in the park all morning, and he has now been doing homework for three hours....on a Saturday!

Rubu, that is a great deal on the comforter. I just got a $25 gift card in the mail, and I am actually planning on buying a comforter with it at Target....and I am going to bring coupons from to get the price down even more.

Amanda September 17, 2011 at 5:51 PM  

Yes, JR I do have two kids. One just turned 2 though and all of the books I found were way too advanced for her. I can always hold on to them though. =) That is a ton of homework....i'm not looking forward to *that*!
