Target’s HUGE Summer Toy Clearance!

 Target Summer Toy Clearance!

I went to Target with the kids this week and as usual – the last week in July/First week in August brings a joyous event to Target shelves….. Semi-Anual Toy Clearance!!!
At my store, the clearance was still scattered along the regular shelves, but that means it will be moved to its own aisle within a few days probably.

 

I took advantage of this clearance last year and I only grabbed a couple of items because I was waiting for one more markdown to happen – but here’s some of the items I saw for 50% OFF and more:

  • Small Toys reg. $2.50: harmonicas, tiaras & wands, punching bags, balloon racers, etc…
  • “My First” Musical Instruments 59% OFF
  • Squinkies 50% OFF
  • Leapfrog 50% OFF  (There is a $5 Off Target Coupon on their Website!)
  • Hot Wheels Tracks 50-75% OFF
  • Fisher Price toddler toys 50% OFF
  • Fisher Price Camera  75% OFF
  • Play-Doh fun packs 50% OFF
  • Select hanging card games – 50% – 75% OFF
  • Select Lego Space Alien & Bionicle Items – 30-50% OFF

Target 70% Clearance on Backpacks is Coming… (Wait for it!)

target-backpack-clearance

Jamie here, I don’t know what your finances are like at this time of year – but if you’re struggling to buy the kids new backpacks (on top of the shoes, clothes, and supplies they need) I want to share a tip with you.  I make my kids wait until the first or second week in September for new backpacks.

Gasp!  I know – I’m a mean, mean mommy – what amount of therapy can ever heal them from such shame!  Just kidding – my kids actually are FINE with this.  When else would they hear the words “Choose any one you want – don’t worry about the pricetag!”

Last year I just couldn’t swing new backpacks before school started – there were too many other expenses pouring in.  SO we waited.  When Target finally marked backpacks down around the first week of September – we pounced.

Embark Backpacks were $4.50 (Reg $15) and the Puma ProCat backpacks were only $12 (Reg $40).  My little one was SO excited to pick out this regularly pricey Puma Procat backpack – I later saw on a magazine cover that it’s the same one Gwyneth Paltrow’s kid has!  :)

Here’s my post from early September last year – right after we made our clearance backpack run:

I’d told my kids at the beginning of the school year that they needed to wait on new backpacks until the prices went down – and boy am I glad I did!  The entire wall of backpacks was 70% OFF – and my kids were able to get some fancy PUMA backpacks for about $10 each.  They were thrilled when the words “choose any one you want” came out of my mouth :)

.

If you just really need backpacks right away – these Puma ProCat backpacks are 50% OFF online right now as well.

I was BLOWN AWAY by the amount of 70% OFF Clearance I found as I went from endcap to endcap in a happy delirium :)

One of the first thing I spotted was a couple Patio Tables for 70% OFF – making them only $20!  I don’t need anything glass in the vicinity of my rowdy boys and their friends – so I passed on this one.  Right next door to the patio aisle was a wall of backpacks that had me beating a swift path in that direction….

School Whatnots 70% OFF

Besides Backpacks – a lot of school supplies and lunch kits were on sale as well for 50% – 70% OFF.  This BYOB Neoprene Lunch Bag by Built was only $3 (Reg $12) – so cute!  This RE waste basket was around $1.50 (Reg $5).  I also picked up a pack of LEGO Ninjago Pencils for a steal.

Dorm Room Clearance 70% OFF

 I wanted to see if there were any more of those great clearance stools or ottomans we posted back here. The Dorm Room stuff I’d picked up last week for 50% OFF was now 70% OFF!   That made both of these lamps $5 each, and this cute stool only about $5 as well!

target-clearance-bedding

Bedding Clearance 70% OFF too???!!

At this point I thought I’d probably give my husband a heart attack when I came home – but then I also found a King Size Comforter & Shams for only $29.99 (Reg $99.99) and a couple pillows that look nice together for about $7 each! (Reg $24.99)   At this price, I just honestly couldn’t walk away.  It’s been about 10 years since we got a new comforter – it was time!

All in all I walked away with some awesome deals – the backpacks alone at full price would’ve cost what I spent on everything else combined.

I’d LOVE to hear what you found in your store – please share in the comments!
