Target Toy Clearance - January 2012

*This post was written by Kelly*
The Target toy clearance sale came a day earlier than I expected. Thanks to The Coupon Goddess I found out about the sale. I made some quick schedule changes and ran to Target right after work. I only had 30 minutes to shop. It's amazing what you can accomplish in 30 minutes! I was in such a rush, I forgot to get a picture of my carriage before I went to the register. I guess I did pretty well. I overheard a little boy say to his mom "Wow! that's a LOT of toys!"

This first picture is what I picked up for a friend who was stuck at work. She's hit the Target sale in the past and knows how quickly the shelves get cleared. I grabbed everything in the first picture below for her. The retail price was $486.00. Her price was $186! This included 3 Lego sets which were 50% off. Hopefully she's all set for birthdays for the year.

This cute little Strawberry Shortcake doll will make a nice Birthday gift.

Here's what I purchased for myself. I also got lots of Lego's. You can never have too many Lego's in this house. It's the one thing that my kids will spend hours playing with. I also picked up a few things for Toys for Tots for next Christmas. My heart broke reading about the low donations this year.

Alll of these toys will have a nice home in my attic awaiting birthdays and Christmas next year. Did you get to the sale? How did you make out?
