The Christmas clearance is 50% off today at Target (food and candy will be 30% off). Last year the 70% off and 90% off markdowns happened really late, I am guessing and hoping they will happen sooner this year. Here are the dates the markdowns took place last year to give us some idea of when they may possibly happen this year.
70% off (50% off food) – January 2nd
90% off (70% off food) – January 4th
Here are some things you may want to watch for because they may end up in their respective departments (example: lip balm may end up in health & beauty department). When these hit 70% and 90% off it’s a great time to buy items for every day and small toys and goodies for Easter baskets.
I also like to check for wrapping paper that would work for birthdays too. I think this zig zig paper would be perfect. We’ll have even more photos for you once we personally head to Target to scope things out, these photos were taken pre-Christmas.
There are rarely any items I pick up at 50% off, there are a few items I may pick up at 70% off, but I save the majority of my shopping for 90% off.
