All week long I will be focusing on the individual departments on their respective mark down day. I will go more in depth as to what you can find in each of the departments. Today I will focus on the departments that have their markdowns on Wednesday, which are Men’s Clothing, Health and Beauty, Lawn & Garden items.
Health and Beauty:
The health and beauty department is usually one that will almost always have an endcap full of clearance items. Because these items are popular everyday items, many of the clearance items in this department will start out at only 15% off. Honestly, 15% off doesn’t do much for me, you will usually find their sale prices on health and beauty items at a better discount than 15% off. You will want to pay particular attention to the clearance items and see if you have any coupons that match up. Just like the food department, this is another department that usually has a good chance of finding coupons that match up with the clearance items.
It is not too often that items in this department make it to the 75% off markdown, they usually get bought at 30% and 50% off before they can make it that low. There are occasions where you will find items at 75% off, but it is more of a rare occurrence.
You won’t find as many clearance items in this department as you will in the women’s department. The department itself is so much smaller than the women’s department. You can still find items at 75% off though. I don’t really have too much more to say about the men’s department, it’s not nearly as exciting as the toys and electronics and their clothes are nearly as cute as the ones you find in the little kids department.
Lawn & Garden:
The lawn and garden section is not a very big department when it comes to the fall and winter seasons, it’s usually just one aisle, so the amount of clearance you will find in this department will be alot smaller than those you would find in a bigger department. You can usually find a bigger amount of clearance before the start of a new season, because our lawns and gardens require different products at different times of year.
You will find a much bigger selection of lawn and garden items in the spring and summer, which means when the season ends you should be able to find a nice selection of clearance items. When I see the 75% off clearance happen, I will buy items at the end of summer for next year. Since we moved recently, we are still working on dressing up our patio and yard, so any planters and garden tools I can pick up at 75% off will save me the money and trouble of picking them up later.
