I have been doing a lot of shopping these past two weeks, but I have been under my grocery budget for two weeks now. Today I wanted to stop by one of our local South Florida Target stores to get an update on the Target toy clearance sale. While we were walking across the parking lot, I scouted a Target coupon on the ground, and what a surprise when I realized it was for a FREE Mist soda.

Target Clearance Update (South Florida store)

There was still a small section left of the 90 percent off sale, and there were a few things that I had not been able to find at the other South Florida Target store a few days ago. I was tempted to pick up more wrapping paper, but I soon realized that it would be a nightmare to carry kids and wrapping paper onto the bus.

I checked out the Target toy clearance sale, and while the signs in almost every department still said 30 percent off, about half of the clearance items rang up at 50 percent off.

Target toy clearance 75 percent off:

While I am scouting for gifts for the coming years birthdays and Christmas, I want to hold off until it hits 75 percent off clearance sale at Target.
