Guess what is coming in July? Besides the 4th of July, and that family reunion you have planned! It’s the BIG Target twice a year toy clearance. I was starting to think there wasn’t going to be very many toys to choose from, because all I have been seeing on clearance is the Kung Zhu pets (and lots of them!). When I headed to Target today, I knew the BIG event would be coming, because I found endcap, after endcap, after endcap filled with clearance toys. GET EXCITED PEOPLE!!! The markdown happened last year on July 28th and 29th, I assume it will be similar this year too.
The majority of the toys are currently only marked down to 30% off, but over the next couple of weeks some of them will go down to 50% off, then they will eventually make it to 75% off!! That’s is when you stock up on toys for your kids, nieces, nephews, friends, and donations, not only for birthday, but for Christmas too! It’s nice being able to make a nice dent in your holiday shopping in the middle of summer.
