I just came home from Target, and so far Target is following the Target Christmas clearance dates that I had estimated earlier on. I am predicting that most Target stores will mark their Christmas clearance to 75 percent off Thursday morning, but there may be some exceptions. 
  • All Christmas decorations and a few gourmet candy/cookie items were 50 percent off
  • All Christmas Wrapping Papers was 50 Percent Off – Most were marked down to $2.50
  • All Christmas candy was 30 percent off
I went to a high-traffic Super Target today, and there were still plenty of Christmas products left. 
I picked up a couple of M&Ms for my boys, and then I picked up a couple of Hot Wheels at 50 percent off, because there were only two packages left, so I knew they would be gone by 75 percent off. The Hot Wheels will go in my gift box for birthdays or next Christmas, and the M&Ms will be saved for the next movie night.
