I was in my local Target Store yesterday and discovered that all of the sandbox and bubble toys were 50% off. The bubble mowers are even 50% off. They had a lot to choose from. There are two full isles of marked down summer items between toys and seasonal. In the kids section, many of the toddler summer clothes are on clearance. I bought a pair of Genuine Kids by Osh Kosh shorts and a shirt for $1.98 each. They also had Market Pantry Chicadees (store brand Goldfish crackers) on sale for just $0.82 a box regularly $1.49 a box. In addition, I saved a total of $5.00 using the Target coupons that I received in a Target mailing. Target sends out great coupon mailings pretty often which can add up to substantial savings.
Last summer I signed my toddler up for Geoffrey's birthday club at Toys R Us. A couple of weeks ago we received a card in the mail inviting us to go to Toys R Us on or near his birthday to select a Thomas the Train Engine of his choice. I took him to the service desk and told them it was his birthday. They crowned him and brought out a balloon, then asked if they could announce his name and age on the intercom. I said yes and had a beaming birthday boy walking around the store proudly displaying his crown and balloon. And then to top it off he picked out a brand new Thomas engine. The birthday club is open to one through ten year olds. It was a lot of fun. We celebrated his birthday over the weekend, so this gave us something special to do on his actual birthday and it was free!
I am moving the savings corner into a blog format. This way you can subscribe to the RSS feed and get the newest savings faster.
