I was in two separate Target stores this week and found some good deals. At one, the Dollar Spot was clearanced (brown dot) and I picked up a division workbook for my 9 year old and a canister of Spic and Span wipes, each for .50. I also found the over-the-door pop up hampers on clearance for $1.25. I'm hoping the kids took the hint with that one!
I also found some Iron Man kiddie boxers and some underoos for my 5 year old for under $5 a pack, which was a great price for me.
Tonight, I was in a Target in Maryland, where I paid full price (a whole buck) for a multiplication workbook. Over the summer, my 9 year old seemed to have forgotten her times tables... and obviously we need to brush up before she learns division this year. I also raided their back-to-school clearance where I found ten packs of pens for .25 each. I know, I probably could have done better earlier in the summer, but I don't live close enough to a large enough town to justify running into just grab a $1 item for free. I also snagged two kiddie sized rakes for about $2.50 each to save myself the fight in about a month when they each want a rake for the yard.
I saw and didn't buy: A Sunbeam programmable coffee pot on clearance from $24.99 down to $12.49... not bad for a decent coffee pot.
