It’s time of the after Christmas clearance! I went through the holiday section at Target and took some photos of items that *should* go on clearance the day after Christmas. Many of these items may or may not end up back in their original section. For instance, the crayons and tape may end up back in the office/art supply section. By sharing these photos you will know what items to look for in the event they get put back into their section and become “hidden deals”.
I love after holiday clearance sales because everything goes 50%, 70% and finally 90% off (except food it goes 30%, 50% and 70%). Here are the dates the Christmas items were marked down last year. There is no guarantee they will happen the same days this year but it gives us a good idea of when it may happen. The past few years the food gets marked down to the next level a day or two after these dates:
- 50% off – December 26th
- 70% off – December 30th
- 90% off – January 4th
These Nivea limited edition tin are regularly $5.00, so at 50% off they will be only $2.50.
Watch for the Burt’s Bees packs with a tree on the front, but also look for mint cocoa that has no holiday theme to them at all.
Every year the clearance eos are always popular. This year they flavor you are looking for is Blackberry Nectar.
This super cute 4-pack of Hello Kitty soft lips cubes is regularly priced at $10.99. These would make cute favors for a girls birthday party.
There are 3-packs of holiday ChapStick and they are priced at $2.99.
I am loving this Crayola Star Wars 64 pack of crayons. I hope these are part of the clearance!
There are some other Star Wars items like card games and trading cards.
I found this cute 12-pack of yoobi mini gel pens. The regular price is $4.99.
There are drawing boards with several different characters on them.
Watch for these Barbie dolls with dresses in blue, purple and pink. The regular price is $4.99. These would be perfect for Easter baskets, they even look more “springy” then they look “Christmasy”.
There are some Frozen purse kits.
I saw several Disney Princess themed items like LipSmackers and this 5-pack of body wash.
Target usually always brings in fingernail polish for the holidays. You want to look for the brand Sinful Colors. There are a variety of colors to choose from like Ruby Ruby, Twilight Twinkles, Queen of Beauty, Aubergine, Green Ocean, Dream On, Teal Midnight, Endless Blue, Pride, Energetic Red, Gilded, Supernova, Cinderella, Frenzy and Pine Away.
This is alway a great time to stock up on paper goods. You will find holiday Dixie prints as well as solid red prints from Spritz.
One section that gets overlooked sometimes are the cords and lighting. There are also command strips for hanging that goes on clearance too.
The Glad, Ziploc and Reynolds items are always popular and often go quickly at 50% off. Let’s all make a promise to not buy til 70% off, OK? There are some coupons for Ziploc:
- $1.50/2 Ziploc bags printable coupon
- $1/2 Ziploc containers printable coupon
- $1/2 Ziploc bags from 11/15 SmartSource insert
- $1/2 Ziploc containers from 11/15 SmartSource insert
There is a good chance the facial tissue may not go on the holiday clearance schedule, they didn’t for Halloween. Keep your fingers crossed that they do.
I always stock up on Scotch tape with the after Christmas sale. Hopefully these packs will go on clearance.
These Scotch Multi-Purpose scissors usually go on clearance too!
This will give you some ideas of what to watch for when you head to shop the after Christmas clearance at Target.
