I decided to check out Rite Aid today to check in on the 75% clearance toys I reported last night. I did find a few things – along with some toys marked 25% and 50% off.
I forgot to note the price, but I believe you’re looking at less than $5 after discount for the Liv doll.
I did spot the Don’t Break the Ice Game for $3.49 after discount!
There were a few toys that would make nice stocking stuffers or small gifts, like these Matchbox cars. After discount, you’d pay just $1.49.
So not toys, but a really good deal! The folding chairs are buy one, get one free this week and the prices start at $14.95. Two camping chairs for $14.95 is not a bad deal in my book!
Also – all the planters are 50% off! For some reason my photo didn’t take, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. The largest ones were $19.99, so you’d pay $9.99. These are the same size/style that I’m using for my tomato plants on my deck to give you an idea.
I ended up snagging the Don’t Break the Ice Game along with this doll:
It was just $3.24, 75% off of $12.99!
So that’s $7.37 (including tax), and $20.25 saved!
A word here: in the past, I’ve relied on the unadvertised toy Target clearance markdowns in summer for my holiday gift stock up. I don’t think that’s such a wise strategy for me anymore, and here’s why. The markdown event seems to now be a really fiercely competitive event and shelves are cleared out before you can say boo. The past few times I’ve tried to do the sale, I’ve come out with just a couple things – if that. The markdowns used to go to 75%, and now it’s 70%. I won’t say it’s a bad sale for everyone, I suppose I’m just over these super intense sales. I think I’d prefer to just watch for sales like this one – and also Fred Meyer which discounts toys about the same time as Target does and not many people seem to notice/care when that happens. So that’s my two-cents on the Target markdown event. (I will still be sharing more about this sale as we approach July – so don’t despair if you still really look forward to it – I’ll still get you the scoop.)
I’d love to know if you find anything at Rite Aid this week! And if you’re planning a trip, make sure to stop by my Rite Aid post for the week.
