Fun Clearance Finds!

Monday, December 26, 2011
I avoid Black Friday like the plague...But the day after Christmas is one of my favorite times to shop. I love the after-Christmas clearance deals! In fact, the week after Christmas and the first week or two of January are AWESOME for all kinds of clearance deals on all kinds of things - clothes, coats, gifts, health & beauty stuff, holiday decor, toys, etc.

And every year is a little bit different - I never know what I'll find. There are some deals that come around pretty much every year, and then there are others that just sorta pop up out of nowhere. Here are some of the fun finds I got this morning at Walmart and Target.


Ziploc storage and freezer bags, Holiday Limited Edition
Normal price: 2.88
Clearance price: 1.13 (these were not marked as clearance on the shelf, but did ring up on clearance price)
Use Ziploc Bags, any $1/2 (1-14-12) SS-12/4
or Ziploc products, any $1.50/2 (2-20-12) SS-11/20
Final price after coupon: .63 each (less if you use the SS-11/20 coupon)

Gillette Fusion ProGlide gift set + Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power 4pk cartridges
Normal price: 10.00 for gift set, 17.47 for cartridges
Clearance price: 5.00 for gift set
Use Gillette Fusion ProGlide Cartridge 4 ct. or larger, Buy 1 Get $5.00/1 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Razor (12-31-11) PG-11/27
Final price after coupon: FREE for gift set

I needed to buy the razor blades anyway, so I waited until after Christmas when I knew these gift sets would be half off and then used the coupon to get them free with my blade purchase. Not a stellar deal on the blades, but at least I got free stuff with it!

There is also a second Gillette Fusion ProGlide gift set that has a full-size deodorant and a thermal face scrub included, normally 15.00 and now clearanced to 7.50 - use the same scenario above and get the gift set (scrub, razor, body wash and deodorant) for 2.50 with purchase of blades.

I also got a few toys and stocking-stuffer kinds of things for the kids with all their holiday sets and certain toys on 50% off!


Pillsbury Holiday Funfetti cake mix, clearanced to .84

Kellogg's PopTarts Holiday Gingerbread, clearanced to 1.07

Betty Crocker Snickerdoodle cookie mix, clearanced to .86
Use Betty Crocker Cookie Mix, any flavor 17.5 oz. or larger pouch .40/1 (12-31-11) SS-11/6 or SS-11/13 or SS-12/11
Final price after coupon: .40 ea

Oreo Cookies Winter Red edition, clearanced to 1.49

Nivea For Men gift set, clearanced to 4.99

There are lots of other deals out there besides just these, including Reynolds wrap (holiday design), hand soaps, Betty Crocker cake mixes, paper plates and cups, and other holiday-themed grocery items. And the Target I went to this morning had quite a bit of toys already marked to 30% off, with a few of the store brand items already at 50% off!

Great finds!! I found some Christmas heavy duty Reynolds wrap 50 sq.ft. for $1.48 at Target and used $1.25 coupons that were available a few weeks ago. I was never that excited about foil before!!

Great score!!! :)

The foil is usually one of the first things to go at my store, so count yourself very lucky! (Lots of couponers in my area.) You did good!
