Look at this great photo of items I got 75% to 80% off! I already have numerous people marked off my sale shopping list for 2010!
Bath and Body Works always has their New Year 75% off sale. If you can run over, you can get some decent gifts. I like to get these for teacher gifts, if able. So, I bought approx $100 worth of lotions and bath products for approx. $25. I calculated approx $20 gift for the teachers ( we have two school teachers and 2 Church school teachers ). So now, I got each teacher done for around $5!
For my sister-in-law, you may remember I picked up one of the 75% off Christmas trees early this year. She is in her first home and didn't even have a tree to put up this year. She bought the tree off of me, but now I knew she was going to need ornaments and decorations for her new tree. MANY stores have deep discounts on ornaments. We happened to be at Michael's getting products for my son's Pinewood Derby car for Cub Scouts, and I noticed the ornaments were 80% off and so was their ribbon.
Since her birthday is in September and I know she will need the ornaments before Christmas, these will be her birthday gifts for next year.
NOW...I wanted to give everyone a heads up!
There is no guarantee, but for the last three years this has been the week of the huge 75% off Toy Clearance at Target! Remember my story from last year? If not, click here to read.
It has always either been Wednesday or Thursday in the past ( with a few stores putting theirs out on Friday ). So, my advice? Get that Sale Shopping list together for the year! Remember, include birthday parties of all the kids parties you think you will hit during the year, too.
My advice. Hit the store at 8 when it opens. It becomes crazy as others start noticing the extreme discounts. I plan to go over the next three days until I find the day they actually get marked down. So, if tomorrow, then I am done. If not, then I will run into the store and back out. I will then go Thursday instead to see if marked down.
Good luck everyone! And, let me know how you do. This is my favorite shopping event of the year.
