Target Toy Clearance

Pin It

It's that time of the year again! Target stores have put tons of toys on clearance for around 50%- 75% off! I know many people look forward to this sale each year and use it as a chance to stock up on birthday gifts and get a head start on holiday shopping!

If you happen to shop this clearance sale, take a picture and send it to me at utahdealdiva at gmail dot com. I'd love to post your loot! 

A few years ago I spent about $50 on clearance toys. I didn't have a real purpose in mind, save to get some inexpensive toys that my kids and hopefully their friends would like. I felt like I did pretty well...only when it came time to give them away, I found my kids didn't want to give the Spiderman toy we had, they wanted to give a Transformer instead. A few times I talked them into it, but after a while that argument got old. Also, toys I got that I hoped my kids would like, well, they did- only they liked other toys a lot more. It was a lesson learned- if you choose to stock up during this sale, opt for baby or toddler toys, when kids are less picky! That or use this sale to stock up on toys you intend to donate over the holidays!

I have had the same problem with the toys I purchase to be prepared. I LOVE the idea of buying now toys that can be donated! I can't believe I never thought of that before.

I have the same problem, my kids are getting too old and picky to shop this sale anymore. You are right though, pick up baby toys. They make great gifts! I did go yesterday and found a few baby items 70% off. There really wasn't much, maybe an aisle of toys and there wasn't very many "quality" toys, in my opinion.
