Ok, so this post is entirely premature. My real clearance shopping usually starts when Target goes full-on 75% off, but I did do a little shopping the day after Christmas. So, why not share what I found?
Of course my first stop was Target. I was really hoping for clearance paper towels, but sadly there were none to be found. Instead, I found some 50% off Goldfish Crackers, Glad containers and Dunkie’s coffee. And that’s something to be happy about.
Before the holidays I stumbled across these gingerbread pita chips made by Stacy’s. I LOVE gingerbread and Stacy’s are my chips of choice. So, I figured this would equate to the best snack product EVER, but I was sadly mistaken. They were terrible. Sniff. A tragic snacking error.
Finding the regular Stacy’s pita chips at 50% off made me feel a little better. Interestingly, there were cases of the gingerbread flavor still on the shelves. I think they will remain until the 90% off phase.
But do you want to know what’s splendidly delicious and also on sale? Williams Sonoma Peppermint Snaps. 60% off too! My all time favorite Christmas candy which normally retails for $24.95. Too rich for my blood, but at 60% off I’ll take them.
Chocolate filled peppermints. Genius. And they came just in time to mask the garlic from this delectable meal I served up today. Mints are certainly required before kissing anyone after this dish. Whoa baby.
That wraps up my clearance shopping thus far. My real clearance shopping is yet to come. I’m sort of a Christmas clearance buzzard. Swooping in here and there to get the goods when they are rock bottom.
On my list of items to hunt for are Christmas gift wrap, tags, bows and packages for baked goods. I suspect that in just a few more days many of these things will hit rock bottom pricing.
How about you? Did you find anything awesome? Are you holding out for Target to drop even further? What’s on your clearance wish list?
