Went to another Target today. (Yes, Target after Xmas sales are my weakness!)
Believe it or not, there are 5 within about a 15-20 minute drive of my house and an additional 6 in 30 minutes. So, I could really become obsessed!!

This other Target had lots more left. I will definitely be back if I hear they've gone to 70%. I did splurge, though and buy the insulated thermos style coffee cups for three girlfriends....because they are Rudolph themed, and they all love Rudolph. There were only three I could find and I didn't want to take a chance and not have them. (If I had seem them earlier, I probably would have bought them for full price!!)

I also picked up 4 royal blue golf towels and now need two more, for the girls on dd's team. I am going to ask my SIL to embroider their name and club initials on it. They use towels when they practice, to dry off their hands.

Really, I was there yesterday and it was 50%. Do locations of stores differ?
I got 3 sets of ice hanging lights for outside, a star ornament that will make a pretty tree topper, window clings for our office at work, red and white beads, M&M pretzels and Peanut Butter M&M's. I was looking for the wreath case and found it on an end cap. I went to look for Christmas Kitchen and bath stuff and not too much left. Everyone loves my snow-man shower curtain I picked up for .50 last year.

I went to Walgreens and the exact same lights were $2.50 a piece, and I paid $4.00.

Yes.

The ones that I went to today (Chicago suburbs) were 70% off on the $1 section but the Christmas was only 50%.

Lewisville (on Hebron/3040), Texas - 70% off Xmas and 50% off candy. There were tons of wrapping paper, bows, ribbon and ornaments - waiting till it goes 90% on that stuff.

Got a lot of $l.00 gift bags for .30.

They have a lot of Hickory Farms sausage and cheese but it's on an end cap in the grocery section. Marked 50% off but I scanned and it's more than 50% off. $5.99 cheese and sausage scanned at $1.79 each.

Best find today was a Febreze candle marked .90 - used a $1.00 coupon so they gave me .10 to buy it.

No Xmas paper goods (napkins, tissues, paper towels) or containers - boo!

I went to my Target yesterday and there was barely anything at all left. No toys, no decorations, no wrapping paper or ribbons, no cards.

Basically no christmas stuff at all except for a handfull of banged up, broken looking lights.

The signs said everything was 50% off.

My target was poorly stocked this Christmas. Not as much merchandise. Hopefully, the rest of you will do much better on the sales.

I also ran into this when I went to JoAnn Fabrics. Less than an aisle left of anything and it was all picked over or damaged.

70% here today. Stocked up on wrapping paper and gel clings (DD thought they were disposable last year). I'm going to look over what I have for gift bags and tissue paper, but I think I'm good for another year or two.

Just got back from 2 targets,...

Oeeo's with red filling for .89 was my biggest score

Also got table top air hockey and foose ball 70% off

Glow wands / sticks .30

I didn't buy any toys or wrapping paper, I wait until it goes cheaper.

I am also trying to declutter so hanginng on to anything that I can use for 12 months doesn't excite me. BUT anything I can use in easter baskets or right now is what I went for.

70% Off Christmas
50% Off Candy
50% Off Holiday Gifts

Anyone have any idea when the holiday gifts will go 70% Off.
Holiday items in the Men and Women's are which I am referring.
Love to get the bladeless personal fan I saw in the men's section 70% Off.

The stores in the Chicago suburbs went 70%off today.

I got some ornaments for DD to use for our craft shows next year, some Playskool toys to save for my daycare kids and a few other things.

I did score at Goodwill. They have a lot of wrapping paper from Target (last year prints) for 49 cents a roll and then all of the Christmas is 75% off. I paid 12 cents a roll!
