I had a very strong feeling that Thursday morning would be the day that Target toy clearance went to 75 percent off toys, so I loaded up the kids and jumped on the bus for a Target toy clearance field trip. When we got there about 9:30 a.m., the lady with the Target toy markdown scanner had gone through one aisle, so I scooped up a few things, had some frugal conversation with other bargain shoppers, and then I headed off to do my price checks before we returned for more toy clearance shopping.
I did not find a whole lot that I could use, as my niece and nephews are all in Europe, which means things needs to be either shipped or sent with relatives in suitcases, so they cannot be big. I did some big after Christmas toy clearance shopping in January, so I already sent all Christmas and birthday gifts for 2011 off with my dad, which means I am now thinking of 2012. I did get a few gifts for my niece, and I picked up some things for my kids for an upcoming birthday and Christmas, but still not much.
Besides the toys above, I also got another pair of extremely cheap Cherokee jeans. I bought them a number bigger than my five-year-old son uses, because I am sure it will be a long time before I encounter new jeans for about $1.
I think the best part of the Target toy clearance sale is that for the price of the one box of Lego, I got everything below.
