    i love me some target!

    I've been to 5 targets, twice, in the past 3 days.

    stalking the toys. stalking the toys. stalking the toys. stalking the toys.

    Then today, we walked into one, and the summer stuff was 50% off. 30 minutes later after looking through toys, we went back and it was 75% off.

    we got so much stuff.

    I spent $123, and saved $197! that was toys AND summer clearance. w00t w00t


    me some target clearance!

    Re: i love me some target!

    Wait, so the toys were not 75% off when you got there but then they were a few minutes later when you checked again?

    I just went to Target when they opened and things are still 30% with some 50%. There are some things I'll go back for if they hit 75% but not before.

    Re: i love me some target!

    When to two targets over the weekend. The summer clearance was 50% off on saturday but scan at 75% off at the price scanners. On sunday nothing was left except for the Crayola® washable sidewalk crayon color blenders on summer clearance. The rest of the Crayola sidewalk chalk are not marked down.

    no clearance toys in those we went to. we went there to buy other stuff so not a wasted trip.

    Our summer toys were marked at 50% off yesterday. There wasn't much left, but DD saw this wind up duck for the pool that was going to be $1.50 (orig. $2.99). When we went to check out it was only 43 cents! So we went back to the section and got 2 sets of sand molds as well.

    Re: i love me some target!

    The summer stuff was 50% off, we did get 2 mini bubbles for $.99 each, and I found 2 cute fisher price games at 50% off and got them because I really wanted them. The rest of the stuff I want I could take it or leave it. I only want them if they are still there when they go to 75% off.

    The things I want the most are not on clearnace at all, the leapesters or leapster games.

    Re: i love me some target!

    I forgot to look at toys! I went to 2 Targets today looking for a specific t shirt for Matthew. I got a bunch of shoes for 3 and 4 and 5 dollars at one of the Targets. The other didn't have much on clearance.

    Also found the Marathon Classic. I've never seen a MA labeled as that before. They also had a couple of RA 50s again - on clearance for 159.

    Re: i love me some target!

    What are those things in the middle?

    Our Targets DO NOT do this, I swear. I have seen things at maybe 15-20% off, that's it. They have returns where pieces are missing and will charge full price, and won't budge

    Re: i love me some target!

    I've gone to Target every day this week so far and it's still at 30 and 50% I got a chuck truck race thing yesterday for $11.88 and got one again today for $8.48 and took the first back. If they still have them when they hit 75% I'll get one for $4 and take the $8 one back. There are still some other things I'm watching that I'll get if they are still there when they drop. Some Barbie stuff, Playmobile stuff, games, those balls with handles that you sit on and bounce on, etc.

    Re: i love me some target!

    I have read on a few sites that the toys hit 75% off on the last Thursday in July. So we headed to Target this morning, got there 5 minutes after they opened. It was packed! Tons of ladies running around with full shopping carts! I got a bunch of stuff and spent $47, I went to 2 Targets.
    At the 2nd Target there was this guy with 3 overflowing carts! He had been there since 20 minutes before they opened (this was the 2nd store so it was about an hour after they opened). He got on his phone a lot and talked to someone about a bunch of stuff he was finding. I heard him talking about these Thomas train sets and saying he was going to go ahead and get 8 of them. I wonder if he was getting them for donations for Toys for Tots or something. He started checking out right behind me, I wanted to stay to see what his total ended up being but I didn't.

    Thomas? Clearance??

    MUST go to Target! DS's birthday is next week and his most favorite thing in the world is Thomas!

    If only I'd have known this morning, we could have gone. Now I have to wait until after dinner, and I'll have the kids with me. Boo.

    Re: i love me some target!

    I'm stuck at work but my bff is a teacher and we already knew that the last Thursday in July was 75% off day...so she's been making the rounds since this morning, calling me every 15 minutes. LOL

    Those with girls with 18" dolls, keep your eyes out for the $20 sets of shoes/shoe rack and the bathtub with accessories sets for $5. (Our Generation brand, AG knockoff.)
