Target Toy Clearance

*UPDATE* Okay, I couldn't help it. I went back and bought a few more toys. I scoped out another store and I was looking for the coveted Cozy Coupe that some were reporting to be on clearance. However, I did pick up a few more toys! I didn' t take anymore pictures, but they are included in my total below.

Did you make it to Target's toy clearance yesterday? We did, in the middle of a tornado! Not literally, but almost. We were probably about 5 miles from one that hit and tore up a Kohl's building and several houses. To be honest I never really thought twice about the sirens since they set them off so frequently here for no reason. There was nothing in the sky around us but buckets and buckets of RAIN! Whew! I thought we were going to have to build another ark! Anyway, I was hoping there would be things left by the time we got there yesterday and I think we did pretty well. Most of our Christmas and birthday shopping is done considering we only have one birthday left for the year. We spent right at $50 for all of this. I will get the final retail value this evening when I get it back down from the attic after the kids go to bed! Let me know what you ended up with!


Total Before Coupons/Sale (Full Price/Retail Value): $274.66
Money Spent: $68.30
Total Saved: $206.36 (75%)

Wow! That tornado was close! I know what you are saying about the sirens, though. Sometimes they go off, with apparently no reason, so we tend to get used to it. I guess I'd better pay closer attention next time they "blow the whistle!"

Good job on the toys, though. I wish we had a Target in my Small Town! :)
