My husband usually stops at the Southcenter Target on his way to work so he can let me know if the toys are in fact 70% off . He started doing this for me years ago, so I wouldn’t have to drag out all of my young children if the markdown hadn’t actually taken place. While he is there he will also do some shopping, which was nice.
I now have all of you wonderful people that let me know if the markdown has taken place, so its not really necessary for my husband to stop and check if they toys have been marked down. (Shh! I haven’t told him that). Besides, he is just a like big kid anyways and I think he actually enjoys shopping for cheap toys.
My plan was to head to one store after I got my youngest on the bus, but at 7:50, I get a call from one of my older boys who was heading to school (him and his brother go to the local community college) and it went something like this:
Son: Hi Mom! The car died.
Me: Seriously? Are you joking with me?
Me: Do you know what today is?
Me: No, it’s Target toy clearance day. (I guess it was actually Thursday also)
Me: How far away are you from the school? Can you walk the rest of the way? (I’m only kidding, I didn’t actually say that! I may have thought it though.) I actually said “Let me get your sister on the bus and then I will come rescue you two.”
So, by the time I helped my boys and got the youngest to school I was getting a really late start. I didn’t think I would find too much by the time I got to the store, so I think my husband took pity on me and he actually stopped at a second Target on his way to work. (I am pretty sure the real reason is because he kind of has fun shopping for 70% off toys). Here is what he picked up or our family:
