I went to Target tonight to pick up a few last minute Christmas items and couldn't help but notice that much of the store was rearranged for their clearance sale. There were already at least 4 aisles of toys ready to be marked down. Some were already tagged at 30% and even 50% off. You could tell exactly which items were going to be marked down.
Linens also had many things that were already tagged at 30% off. I walked past those on my way to check out Christmas. The trees were mostly gone already. The rest of the Christmas items were grouped into what, for me, is the day after Christmas sale arrangement.
I seem to give a lot of money to Target in January. This year, I have my Target check card, so I'll save a little more! If you shop there a lot, I reccommend it. It is a card that is attached to your checking account. It is not a credit card. Every time you use it, you earn 5% cash back. It works just like your debit card. I love Target!
