Shopping with Mavis – Target 90% Off Clearance Sale

mavis one hundred dollars a month

While The Girl and I were running errands today we stopped by Target to check out their 90% off Christmas sale. *Thanks Monique for the heads up.

target christmas clearance sale

We went late in the day, so by the time we got there the stock had been pretty picked over. There were lots of boxed ornaments, gift bags, greeting cards, and a few Christmas decorations, but we didn’t need any of those items, so we didn’t buy anything. As we were walking towards the front of the store, we noticed an end cap with a bunch of holiday treats on the shelf.

ritz fudge crackers

There were about 20 boxes of Ritz Fudge crackers without a price tag on them so I picked up a box and found a scanner. $0.25 a box! Weeeee… these would be perfect for the boys.

m&m pretzel

Red and Green pretzel M&M’s were only $0.89 a bag.

I also picked up a box of The Girl’s favorite Kashi Cereal too.

Here is what my transaction looked like:

{4} Fudge covered Ritz Cracker Boxes $0.25 each
{1} Pretzel M&M’s $0.89
{1} Kashi Berry Cereal $2.75
Used {1} $.75/1 Kashi Target Printable Coupon *
Used {1} $1/1 Any Kashi Cereal Coupon {cut out from a box of Kashi bars}
Used My favorite Strawberry Shopping Bag to save $0.05
Final Price: $2.84

* Target was out of the Kashi Berry Cereal that was printed on the Target store coupon. When I asked the stock person if they had anymore, he told me to grab any box of Kashi berry cereal I wanted as an instant replacement.

Target Shopping Trip

All in all not a bad trip.  I scored some crap food for the boys, and my daughters favorite cereal for less than 3 bucks. I was happy.

I will be posting my grocery budget goals for 2013 in tomorrows edition of Mondays with Mavis, so be sure and check back tomorrow morning.

Did YOU score any great after Christmas deals at Target this past week? Have you tried those fudge covered Ritz crackers? How do they taste?

    We were there too – only here, not there. Ours went to 90% off as well. I bought some Christmas gifts for next year in that clearance junk, and 15-cent Gingerbread peeps as rewards/treats for the kiddies. And some 10-cent gift bags. Ran low on these this year and that’s how I wrap for the little nieces/nephews – just throw a bunch of crap in a big fun bag.

  6. Betsy says

    I have had those crackers before and while I was expecting a strange taste – but they are AWESOME. I am sure your husband and son will like them.

  7. Ashley says

I didn’t get to search as much as I’d like (impatient kiddos), but I got a shirt for my son for .90, a bath poof for .9, chocolate covered pretzels for .50, a bag of bows for .10, and a foam christmas tree kit for .50. Plus free reach floss and .49 Clorox stain remover (w/coupons).
