Spotted at Target

My husband is participating in an easy triathlon this coming weekend, so yesterday found us at our local Target to pick up a bike that he could use. They had some good deals, so he was happy.

While he was shopping, the kids and I started browsing around the perimeter of the store to see what sale or clearance items we could find. Perimeter perusing is a great way to find bargains at Target. You just walk around the edges of the store and look at the end caps that are closest to the walls. Sometimes you may also spot clearance on the regular shelves, but still closest to the edges of the store.

There were a lot of snacks on sale, such as the popular Yogos at $1.50. I’m guessing that there might be extra inventory to clear now that back to school promotions are over. I spotted a couple of backpacks left at deep discounts, so consider stocking up on any you find. You can save them as replacements for next year, or fill them at Christmas time to give to those in need.

One thing that surprised me was the number of Halloween clearance items I found. Crazy cupcake sprinkles (eyeballs, bats and more) were discounted, as were Halloween cookie kits and other Halloween baking supplies. Next to the Halloween baking supplies were ordinary baking items on sale, too, such as cupcake liners.

Of course I picked up some of the not so creepy item. Decorating cupcakes would make a nice after school activity for my kids and their friends. I grabbed some boxes of Pillsbury strawberry cake mix. The strawberry flavor was marked way down to 67 cents at my store, and it was so much cheaper than any other flavor. Hey red cupcakes might be completely appropriate for Halloween.

The fact that some Halloween was already on clearance got me thinking about other stores. I may just have to go out this weekend to Kohl’s, Walmart and Disney, to see what might be available! I know that already has some good Halloween deals.

Have you spotted any great deals at Target lately?

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
