Akron, OH went 75% off yesterday...and as of 11:30 they still had tons of stuff. Probably 5 trees or so (although, I cannot fathom buying a tree from Target. I got a beautiful 7.5 ft. FULL tree last year from Walmart for $78-not on sale!) and tons of lights, ornaments, paper, etc. I do have some complaints though...my Targets either 1) NEVER have the paper goods, scissors, tape, etc. that you guys find or 2) I'm just never there early enough the day after Christmas to get it. Oh- and those Nick & Nora pjs..never see those either. I am getting pumped about toys...seeing a ton ofthose at 30 and 50...but unfortunately this year funds are limited on "extras" like this so I'm definitely going to try and hold back until 75%.

Stores are already consolidating a lot of Christmas and setting the bulk stuff. Finally, Jif peanut butter 2 packs (large containers) for the same price as Smart & Final. Saves me a trip there at least once over the next couple of weeks. I suspect that any overheard conversations have to do with moving stuff to make room for the bulk items that fill in the major seasonal section (where the trees & ornaments were). A lot of stores will move everything to the mini seasonal section (where they had the stocking stuffers and gift sets) till it goes 90% then out the door as salvage. Then they'll bring in Valentines. I just ran out to the closest store which also has the most left. They apparently found a few more small Lego sets and some other toys because they were out and hadn't been earlier. Those and a few other select items made their way to an area of the store lacking a lot of cameras and with a reasonable stash spot. Just need to hang there till morning, I am pretty sure.

I was super excited to stop at Target last night and see it marked to 75 % off. My best finds were plates and napkins not in the Christmas section but on an endcap near candles. The were ivory with a gold design around the edges. They will be perfect for my parents Golden anniversary in June. I was so happy to find these. I am planning on 150 people so the 75% off really helps. I also got those big bells to use but I think I will spray paint them gold. Some sort of gold light sets, large pillar candles, and some sort of golden butterflies that I think I can use. Great trip for me!!

I am in Canton and sometimes go up to Akron (went yesterday and got lights and a few other finds), but I too never find the paper goods or containers either....but I am happy with what I have found this year. However last year when everyone was finding the Scotch tape, I searched and searched and I did finally find some at the Belden store and was thrilled with that.

Keep an eye out for a new coupon booklet from Target. It's red and about 3"x4". The cover reads "Start a new year of savings" and it has $25 in Coupons inside. The coupons are for food, cleaning and personal care items. They expire 2/14/2011. The back of the coupon booklet says "Postmaster, please deliver between 1/3/2011-1/5/2011" I received it on Thursday 12/30/2010, but forgot to post.

Just got back from our Target. Everything including food/candy was 75% off. I got a 4 pack of wrapping paper rolls for $1.50, package of bows for $1.25, and for whatever reason I felt compelled to buy a set of 12 salad plates for $3.74 (white with light gold trim)....not sure if I'll keep the salad plates since I have nothing to go with them. I might double back tomorrow to see if things are 90% off and 1 of 3 cookie jars still remains.

In Branson, I found tons of sporting goods/camping 30-50% off. Also Milkbone dog treats are TPC for $2.54 and there are $1.50/1 peelies on the box. I've seen those coupons at several stores, so you might find them!

As a heads up, if those are the same plates I picked up last year after Christmas, they had a lidded box, they look nice however they chip very easily.

Thanks for the heads up on the plates. I hate when plates chip and it never occured to me they might not be microwavable. I'm going to retun them here shortly. I really don't need 12 smaller plates that match nothing lol. Talk about impulse buy!

Based on the markdown schedule of the past few years, 90% prob. won't happen til Mon. or Tuesday - not sure I'll venture out today, really should get some house cleaning done so I have somewhere to store all my bargains anyway.

Why is everyone thinking so early? It's happened the 5th and 6th in previous years. Am I missing something?

Well, the last 3 years it went 75% on the 30th or 31st, but at least the earliest stores went the 29th this year, so it should be earlier at least by a day or two than previous years. Would not be shocking if it went today or tomorrow at those early stores. They do tend to leave it at 75% over the full weekend to take advantage of normal weekend traffic. Depends a bit on how badly they want it gone to move on to full price merchandise.

I have to take the kiddos to the Rose Parade float viewing this morning, so I won't get to check till later.

Hey Neighbor :)..
I don't go to Bradley often, it seems like their mark down team is always way behind.. Maybe they've changed it, Its been a while since I've stopped in there.
Glad to know I've got a local Gottadealer :)

Stores here still at 75. The store I went to this morning had little to nothing but junk left. Did have a cute tree in a pot I wouldn't mind having but still more than I wanted to pay! Would take it at 90 though but doubt it will still be there! :( Did find some of the plastic disney plates though with a Christmasy theme and found one box of granola bars in the regular aisle. They were really good at all my local stores at finding the stuff in the regular aisles this year! Found a boxed set of Christmas Disney Cars (there were like 5 or 6 cars in the box) but they were still ringing up with the regular toys 30% off! :( bummer! Thought I was going to get a deal. Pretty much a wasted trip out this morning.

Are they holiday plates? If so, return them ASAP so you get a full refund. Once they go to 90% off you will only get that amount back.

Still 75% off at Mason City, Iowa. I don't even know if I'll bother going at 90% off...doesn't seem like there was even anything there I really wanted. Then again, EVERYTHING looks good at 90% off! Has anyone been to the Fort Dodge Target? Maybe, hopefully, a better selection. Might try to go to that one at 90.

Still 75% at my Target too. LOTS of ornaments left, some red LED lights, TONS of party supplies, and various other things. Hoping there's still plenty at 90%.

Really, will they only refund the 90% off, I have a few things to return from 50%...will have to go tomorrow and hope they give me all my $ back.
