My phone was ringing first thing this morning and I ran to get it. And, low and behold, it was my friend Becky from Saving Bits and Pieces letting me know that Target's toys were at 75% off today, Friday the 15th.
If you remember my post from earlier in the week ( click here to read ) you will notice that I said it would be either Wed, Thurs or Friday of this week. Although, I must admit this is the first year it has ever been on a Friday for me. I was so sure it would be Thursday.
Anyway, I went the last two days and was not really excited about dragging myself up there with 3 kids today ( wouldn't you know my kids are off school today for teacher conferences...making it that much harder to shop ) but Becky's phone call got me going. We hopped in the car and were up there sometime around 9:30 - 9:45!
And, boy am I glad I went. I got $1,200 of toys for approx $300!!!! I have enough to share with other family members, thus saving them money for the year, too. That makes me feel great!
Now, I am stockpiled for birthdays and Christmas for the kids next year, all the kids parties they need to go to, etc. In fact, they even had household items on sale, too. So, I got stuff done for sister in laws, too! And, clothes! Did I mention that? I found a few pieces!
Gifts will be packed away so hopefully the kids forget about them in a year. Plus, I told them they needed to help me find gifts for all their friend's birthday parties this year. What could I do? Oh, well.

And, I hope you got my Facebook and Tweet earlier today letting you know to run to your Target!
Before I go, I am adding a picture of a reader's success story today. Look at all the toys she got at 75% off today! Way to go, Tina!
So, how did you do? Feel free to send photos and I will add them to the post!
