Target Clearance Finds

Here are some recent clearance finds from Target! I didn't get another picture, but there were STILL LOTS of shoes on clearance!

This first picture shows an endcap behind office supplies/scrapbooking. The Crayola artist backpacks (you can barely see behind the Pink "mom" photo album) were about $7. Those would make good birthday gifts. The graduation party supplies were running about $0.70! So if you know someone graduating in August or December, tell them to stock up now! There were also some Father's Day gift bags and curly ribbon nearby and the ribbons were orange, silver, and blue...could be used for SHSU graduation gifts!

The food clearance endcap had tons of Cars 2 shaped/colored marshmellows. Still had some Kool-Aid @ $0.11! There were some Ghiradelli Chocolates about $2.50 and I believe there are some $1 Qs out that would make those pretty cheap! There were these shaped ice trays also, that I thought kids would love. The pictures showed some with olives inside the ice, some with fruit.
These next two pictures were in housewares. Lots of picture frames! There were quite a few "School Days" collage picture frames, which I would like to get for our kiddos. They were 50% off for about $5!

More Toy Clearance! I got one of the Cake Bakery sets on the bottom. Some were marked $7.98, some $9.98. Sure enough it rang up at $9.98 and I didn't realize it until I got home, so I have to go back to get that fixed. If you get one, be sure to watch the price as they scan it and they should be able to fix it then.
Since we're expecting, I was looking up and down the baby aisles. I'm always amazed at the new things that come out just in the time since we last had a baby. Halo sleep sacks and swaddling gowns, etc were not around when our last came, and I really want one this time! They had some Small and Medium sizes on clearance for $9-$10, which is 50% off!

July 4th Weekend Fun

Looking for something to do this weekend for the 4th of July??? Here are two great (and inexpensive) ideas!

Every year the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion hosts the Houston Symphony's Star-Spangled Salute on July 3rd at 8:00pm. The first year I went was actually for a music class, and I was hooked! Gates open at 6:30pm and it is completely FREE!!

Then on July 4th, 300Bowl in Conroe is having 99 Cent Games All Day and $1.50 Snack Bar Specials! 99 cents a game will provide some very inexpensive bowling AND keep you in the AC!

This deal goes from 11:00am to 11:00pm!

Groupon: Golf @ 242

Groupon has an offer good through tomorrow, for half off Golf at Golf U at 242!

For $25, you get one month of unlimited golf balls and practice-range admission at Golf U at 242 in Conroe (a $50 value). I'd say that's a pretty good deal for a whole month!

Check it out here at Groupon!

Coupon Class Tomorrow-Willis

I was in Kroger today and an employee saw me with me coupons and stopped to tell me about a Couponing Class happening tomorrow at her church, The Light, in Willis! Here are the details:

She also mentioned, there's no child care provided, so make plans for that if you go!

On another note...Last Tuesday I ran into the Huntsville Kroger to get a few things and happen to spot some peelie coupons on Flavor Blasted Goldfish for $0.75/1 Goldfish Grahams. Well, one of my purposes for stopping today was to see if these were included in the 5/$5 sale...and they ARE!!! Score! The coupon makes them $0.25 each! The Willis Kroger didn't have any with peelies though, so I may just have to make a stop by the Huntsville store again soon! :)

Groupon: College Station

Living Water Pottery – College Station

For $15 you get a hand-building pottery class at Living Water Pottery in College Station (a $30 value). Split into two visits, the first class provides two hours for hands to push and pull at 5 pounds of clay as one-on-one attention aids in intricate molding techniques, including slab building and pinch potting. The completed ceramic will be delicately baked in a toasty warm kiln after the first session. The one-hour follow-up visit, scheduled one week later, will present the newly cooked project naked and awaiting a modest coat of paint before it is placed tenderly back into the kiln to seal in the final touches.

$2 Tanks @ Old Navy Friday!!

Old Navy has Women's, Girls', & Toddler Girls' Tanks on sale for $2 this Friday, June 24th! 7am to 9pm, Limit 10. I bought some of their tanks last time they had them on sale like this, and I have to say, even though I don't like that the straps are very thin, they have held their "stretchiness" all year. I have some other tanks from another store that have stretched out and not held their shape. But the Old Navy tanks are still holding their shape! So I definitely will be stocking up on some new ones this Friday!!

Recent Target Clearance Finds

These are some of the clearance finds recently at the Huntsville Target. This first picture is behind the sport section and there was quite a few Polly Pocket sets there on the bottom.
Here's a stash of King Zhu's in the toy section on clearance for about $2.50. Might be a good stocking stuffer or Operation Christmas Child box gift!

As you can see.....LOTS of children's shoes clearanced!

This next picture is in the purse/accessory section and there were lots of cute wallets at 30% off. I saw some as low as $4-6! And they were nice!

And lastly, here's a rack of jewelry on clearance!

The "usual" clearance hot spots behind the pet section were pretty drab-looking and cleaned out! There were a few clearance endcaps behind food, but the only deal I found was LOTS of Grape or Cherry Kool-Aid marked at $0.11 and there's a $0.50/5 coupon found here on facebook, making them a PENNY each! (You have to enter the sweepstakes to get the coupon, but then you can remove the app if you don't want to keep it on your profile)

Clearance Finds & Weekly Deals

Yesterday I had lots of places to go, so I just had to stop and kill some time checking out some deals! First, here are some clearance finds from the Target in The Woodlands:

This beautiful Queen-size Comforter set was $69.98. There were only two amongst some other bedding clearance items.

These looked like a really cool toy I know my girls would love. They'd make a neat birthday or Christmas present to have on hand too! The boxed sets were $6.98 I believe and the smaller sets were $4.98.

There were also LOTS of clearance items in the food section, including some 2-pack Cereals, Flavored Water, Wildberry Italitan Soda, Candy, and they were putting more out as I walked by!

These next pictures are from the North Loop 336 Walgreens. They were out of almost all the good deals for this week except the Celcius Drinks. But they did have some clearance items in the pet section! I didn't cross reference my coupons because I was in a hurry, but there might be some for the Scotch fur-fighter items and some of the treats.

This was THE only Walgreens ACE wraps on clearance, (you may have read about on WildforWags) I saw at any of our stores I've been to. They were $4.29, so $2.29 after the coupon!

The Walgreens in Huntsville had LOTS of Ecotrin when I was there! Read HERE how to get it Free!
