It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

It's January clearance time!

If you have small children, run, don't walk, to your nearest Target. They just marked their toy clearance down to 75% off. Just think of all the birthday parties that your child gets invited to. Wouldn't it be nice to just reach into your gift stash instead of running out at the last minute to buy a full price?

This is one of my favorite signs to see:

My sister and I met at one of the Target stores near us. We loaded up our carts with toys.

After hitting the toy section we headed to the gift wrap section to see if we could score any bargains. At the first Target that we hit, we didn't find any. At the second one, we found lots of birthday gift bags for 75% off. How perfect is that? A stack of gifts for the year and gift bags too!

While we were there, we ran into our blogging friend, Melanie from The Coupon Goddess. It's always a treat to run into her. If you see her in a store, you know you're in the right place. She's always where the deals are.

Here's a picture of our haul. I think we're all set for birthdays and some Christmas next year.

If you have the time, take a look around the store. They have lots of clearance items in every department. We found this Yankee Candle diffuser for $4.99 from $19.98.

After loading up the car with our goods. We headed to our next destination, Old Navy.

Old Navy was having 40% off their clearance.

My sister spent $50.09 for all this stuff:

2 pants
2 dress shirts
1 thermal shirt
1 sweater

8 tank tops
1 wool jacket
2 slippers
2 t-shirts
4 zip hoodies

All in all a great day. I can't wait to see what other stores are offering for their January clearance sales.

Happy shopping!
