I am the queen of the Target clearance section lately. We scored big with the Crayola products last week, but it was nothing compared to this week's haul.
It all started with these gems. Twin size sheets are now in demand in our house. We like to have back ups in case of a late night diaper leak, puke, cuppie spill and whatever else Miss Thing can throw at her big girl bed. I scored two sets of flannel sheets for $4.98 each. I got the leaf pattern and a solid green. They don't really match Icie's bed, but for $4.98 you can't beat them for back up sheets.
In the same trip I grabbed those cute summery tennis shoes for Icie. They were the only pair left, and for $3 I couldn't pass them up. Each season/shoe size that Miss Thing goes through I always look for a cheapo pair of sneaks to keep in our emergency bag that stays in the car. These will be that shoe.
I called my mom to tell her about my wonderful find. She knew exactly which rug I was talking about, and went to her own Target to see if she could come up with the same deal. My mom had no luck. I was pretty certain that today while we strolled through the rug aisle today that there would not be another one available. I had promised my mom though that I'd keep an eye out, and there it was another beauty for $57.48. Again we made the scoop and got the heck out there with the deal.
I'm on a roll, let's just hope when our tax return comes in I can keep up my streak and pull off some night stands for our bedroom. I have an eye on some, but the price is not quite right yet, and it seems following my gut and waiting them out is working lately.
