The Target Christmas clearance has started! You should find the Christmas items marked down to 50% off today. Food and candy items will probably only be at 30% off. The holiday items get marked down to 50%, 70% and 90% off. I generally try to not buy anything until the 70% off markdown, but I really try to hold out to 90% off. I personally like to buy Christmas paper for next year, but I only buy that at 90% off.
Here are the days the markdowns took place last year. I can’t guarantee they will happened the exact same days this year, but it does give us a general idea of when the markdowns may happen.
- 50% off (food 30% off) = December 25th
- 70% off (food 50% off) = December 29th & 30th
- 90% off (food 70% off) = January 3rd & 4th
There are so many items that can be used year round and not just for Christmas. This is a great time to stock up on items for birthday treat bags. I like to buy small toys to go into Easter baskets with the Christmas clearance too. Heck, I’ll even buy items for next years stocking.
Here is a peek at some of the items you may find:
Christmas themed diapers and wipes should ring up at 50% off. There is a chance they will move these to the baby department and mark them down differently. Grab a package and use the scanner to see what they ring up at.
There was a lot of plastic tableware in the Christmas section which had this Up & Up packaging, keep an eye out for these and see if they ring up at 50% off.
There are always the Ziplock and Glad containers to watch for, these will be $1.50 at 50% off.
Red Glad cling wrap should be 50% off.
Look for Reynolds Wrap with Christmas packaging as well as Parchment Paper too.
These Barbie dolls were found in the Christmas section at my store.
These cute Duple apples would make great Easter basket stuffers.
These My Little Pony sets are Christmas themed at all.
These Chapstick tins are part of the Christmas clearance.
These EOS, Burt’s Bees and Vaseline lip balms will also be marked down.
Watch for these 4-packs of Reserve glasses.
In years past, these character glasses have always been part of the Christmas clearance. The regular retail price on these is $19.99.
There are quite a few different facial tissues that should be marked down.
These character luggage tags were also found in the Christmas section.
There is no guarantee that these items will be part of the Christmas clearance, but you will want to keep an eye out for boxes that have winter or Christmas themes.
