Both items were actually in with the Christmas stuff.

Caity January 4, 2014 at 3:32 pm

what section did you find the Jingle & Bell dogs? I was hoping to find those, but I didn’t see them. But I realized I didn’t look in the book section very well, so I may have to do one more trip to see if I can find them, if that’s where they are


Hilda January 5, 2014 at 1:16 pm

They were on the top shelf in Christmas area!!!!


Natasha January 4, 2014 at 1:11 pm

Appu January 4, 2014 at 8:49 pm

Trisha January 4, 2014 at 1:14 pm

Did you clear out the issaquah location? ;) I want a tree and some tape.


MBF January 4, 2014 at 1:30 pm

I found soooo much perfume at my store, not just faith hill, but they came up “item not found.”


rose January 4, 2014 at 8:24 pm

It came up “item not found” at the scanners, but it scan 99 cents at the registers.


Sally January 6, 2014 at 8:16 am

They came up item not found at my store too, but they were full price when cashier scanned them :(


Mbf January 4, 2014 at 9:03 pm

Oh snap, I hope they’re still there tomorrow, then! Lol!


Mbf January 5, 2014 at 11:13 am

No luck today. :(


Sarah b January 4, 2014 at 1:31 pm

Katie January 4, 2014 at 1:51 pm

My colone came up as item not found when I price scanned it but when the cashier rang them up she had no issues. They were .99 each.


Suzanne January 4, 2014 at 1:55 pm

I found a large wreath ($3.50), cat toys ($.99 for a pack of two), 18 feet of lit garland ($1.40) and tissue paper ($.30). No trees at my target :(. Thanks for the heads up of 90%; the signs still said 70%.


Selena@howaboutcookie January 4, 2014 at 1:59 pm

WOW!!! You hit the mother lode!! Awesome finds.


Jo January 4, 2014 at 3:11 pm

Had so much fun today. Thank you for all the tips. Found lots of holiday bags and wrapping, bought tons of tape and washi tape. My big find was the Starbucks drink all through January coffee mug for $7.50 for my husband. He’s feeling a little better about my shopping today. ;-)


Sky January 5, 2014 at 1:43 am

Where did you find the Starbucks coffee mug? And how does it look like? Thx.


KCatty January 4, 2014 at 3:43 pm

All the H&B gift sets were still 30% at my stores in the Kansas City area. :( Still happened upon lots of goodies, though was surprised how few gift bags were available. Still a lot of fun finds to store away for next year!!


Katherine January 4, 2014 at 4:04 pm

Thanks for the heads up about the Spy Gear – it wasn’t marked in San Marcos Tx but rang up .49! Woo Hoo!!!

Beth January 4, 2014 at 5:24 pm

What game do you play with the spy things you bought?


G189 January 5, 2014 at 7:15 am

I also want to know the game :)


Christina January 4, 2014 at 6:37 pm

Thankss for your post! I hit up three stores and were able to find some of the hidden clearance. Found lots of stocking stuffers for under a dollar like lip smackers and hello kitty cosmetics. It’s good idea to look in regular aisles n to look around at the price scanners cuz people leave some good goodies there


Lisa H. January 4, 2014 at 7:36 pm

Jingle & Bell are located in the book section.


Sk January 4, 2014 at 7:49 pm

Oh my! There I was feeling really happy and smug about my clearance finds but after looking at your haul not so much ;-) you did really good. I wish I could find some of those makeup bags. Where we they? Love that cute baby pink polka dot one on the 1st picture, so cute. Totally digging the ponytail holders. But thanks to you and your wonderful readers I found tons of stuff, Burt bee lip balms .29, jingle dog 3.49, hair curler 2.99, pie pan 1.0, cookie sheet 1.20, Watkins hand soap .79, Disney stockings 1.30, washi tape, ribbons, scotch tape, paper products for .29 cents, cookie cutters, cookie icing set, ladies gloves, stocking holder (the nice train set), holiday projection night light, Dora wrapping paper and another neutral roll… Guess that is about it! Thank you for your posts about clearance and the hidden deals.


Lynda January 4, 2014 at 8:02 pm

Great stuff! I bought so much at 50 off, if I take it back will they return it and let me rebuy it?


Mbf January 4, 2014 at 9:07 pm

Not right away, they’ll have to put it on the shelves first, which could be later in the day. That’s why it’s a good idea to check a couple of times and first thing in the morning.


Sk January 4, 2014 at 8:26 pm

What do the eos lip balms look like, ie the ones that are part of the holiday clearance.


Mbf January 5, 2014 at 11:15 am

They put out a whole cart of new stuff today, mostly ribbon and bags. Some of it was even still in the bulk packaging. I just barely missed the NFL blankets, apparently, though.


Hilda January 5, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Eos are lavender color


Sk January 5, 2014 at 9:03 pm

Thanks for your response, Sadly I didn’t see any in my store :-(


TwinsBB January 5, 2014 at 2:21 pm

When i got there this morning (around 10ish am), the staff were unboxing some more holiday stuff to put on the clearance rack! Why they wait til now, was my question??? Anyways, I got tons and tons of plastic containers of all sizes. I even got plates ($0.29), wine gift box (1.20), muffins gift box ($0.29), disney paper bags ($0.20) and elf on the shelf ($1+) even memory foam slippers ($0.99!). My husband and I filled two shopping carts. We racked up a $40+ bill but saved over $350! When we left, the staff were still unboxing!


Sk January 5, 2014 at 9:01 pm

Wow, that is crazy, where is this store, would love to yo there ;-)


TwinsMommy January 6, 2014 at 6:55 am

Dublin, CA


Sk January 6, 2014 at 7:13 am

Too bad, I am in Ohio :-)


Lala January 5, 2014 at 3:10 pm

First time to your website, thank you so much! I saved 450.00 today!


Vickie N. January 5, 2014 at 5:56 pm

Holy batman! Thank you sooo much for the pics and posts! I went by today and saved $410 after only spending $72. I found some Christmas shirts in the regular girls’ graphic tees for $.99! Snatched some up for next year. Yay for bargains!


Kristine January 5, 2014 at 6:16 pm

Thanks to all the pictures I spent $10 and saved $85.80!!! I found a garden set (weeder and rake) for $2.29 (originally $29.99) and a Hello Kitty change purse for $0.49! I also found several small toys (originally $5.00 each) for $0.50- Princess Sophia mini drawing board, Spider-Man voice recorder, Avengers camera, Princess camera, Minnie Mouse camera. They were in the toy section where they have various smaller toys for $2, $3, $4 and $5. The first ones I rang up were original price, but when I looked for the ones that looked a little more “worn” they rang up $0.50! Absolutely no difference in packaging- just picked through a bit. Also found Strawberry Shortcake nail polish sets for $0.49- they were in the Christmas clearance section.


Paula January 5, 2014 at 6:45 pm

Any sighting of Elf on the Shelf sets in the Seattle area?


Abby January 5, 2014 at 9:03 pm

Any idea how long the Christmas stuff will be in the store? It went 90% yestderday ( Saturday) In Chicago. Weather is awful here but I’d like to go one more time.


Abby January 5, 2014 at 9:27 pm
