How to Save Money at Target

 
 

****I FOUND THIS ON YAHOO.COM****

****THOUGHT YOU MIGHT APPRECIATE SOME MONEY SAVING HELP****

Between back-to-school sales and everyday bargains, Target is an all-purpose shopping destination for plenty of people. But there’s a science to shopping at Target, and these tips and tricks can help you save even more money.
 
Just because something is on clearance at Target doesn’t necessarily mean that’s as low as the price will go. There’s a lot of information to be found on those little red clearance stickers that can help you determine if it’s the best deal you can get. In the bottom-left corner of the tag is the item’s original price. In the bottom-right corner is the current sale price. And in the top-right corner is the percentage off. Regular prices at Target always end in a “9,” savvy shoppers have noted, but clearance items can be priced at 15 percent, 30 percent, 70 percent, 75 percent, or even 90 percent off.

Food, furniture, and electronics generally don’t drop by more than 15 percent, some savvy shoppers point out, but holiday items may end up 90 percent off at the end of the season. The key is to check if the price ends in a “4.”

“If the price on the sticker ends in an ‘8,’ it will be marked down again,” says Kelly at FaithfulProvisions.com. “If it ends in a ‘4,’ that’s the lowest it will be. So if you see a price ending in a ‘4’ at 50 percent off, you might want to grab it now, because it’s not going to get any cheaper.”

Target has a team of employees who focus on marking down merchandise, and certain departments get marked down on certain days, several frugal bloggers have noted. According to TargetSavers.com, Clippergirl.com, and others, the general Target markdown schedule is:

Monday: Children’s clothing, baby items, electronics, and office supplies/gift wrap/stationary.
Tuesday: Women’s clothing, home decor and domestic items

Wednesday: Men’s clothing, toys, food, health and beauty, garden items
Thursday: Housewares, lingerie, shoes, sporting goods, luggage

Friday: Cosmetics, jewelry, hardware, automotive, and home improvement

Ask a Target associate what the markdown schedule is for your local store, since schedules — and prices — may vary by location. “In addition to knowing the day of the week, it’s important to know that they mark things down to the next level every two weeks,” writes Kelly at Faithful Provisions. “So, if you’re watching an item and see it was just marked down 50 percent, come back the same day in another two weeks and you should find it at 75 percent off.”

Be warned, though: If you hold out for that better discount, the item may be sold out when you come back. And if the item was purchased online but returned to a store, it might be the only one of its kind in the place — and it will be priced to sell.

“The best deals you will find at Target are returned online-only items,” wrote Reddit user “goldenglove2,” a former Target employee. “Most of the time they go straight to 90 percent off because there is no place for them on the planogram.”

Those deeply discounted items often end up on the end caps of rarely trafficked aisles, several Target fans have pointed out, and though they’re clearly labeled “Clearance,” the items aren’t necessarily in any kind of order.

“At our store we literally close our eyes and toss,” Target employee “santisanti” confessed on Reddit.

If you’re shopping for toys, it’s best to stock up in January, when stores make room for spring and summer stock, and in late July or early August, when the fall and winter toys come in. Holiday merchandise tends to get marked down quickly once the big day has passed; experts call it “the 3-3-2 rule.” The first three days after the holiday, items are 50 percent off. For the next three days, they’re 75 percent off. For two days after that, they’re 90 percent off and, after that, whatever is left goes to Goodwill.

If you don’t have the time to track clearance prices, you can still minimize your bill in other ways:

Sign up for a Target Red Card. You can save 5 percent every time you use it, and if you prefer to shop online at Target.com the Red Card will get you free shipping.

Watch for the Daily Deal. Keep track of Target’s Daily Deal offerings — up to five items at a bargain price plus free shipping.

Bring your own bags. Most Target stores will give you 5 cents off for every bag you use, according to Quizzle.

Clip (or print) coupons. Target offers plenty of store coupons on their website and through their mobile coupon program, and you can use them in conjunction with the manufacturer’s coupons you find online or clip from your local newspaper; maximize your savings by using them on trial-size items when you can. Also: The store sometimes prints high-value coupons at the bottom of your receipt, so check them before you toss them.

Keep your receipt. Target will match prices in a competitor’s printed ad as long as the product has the same brand name and model number and the ad is from within seven days of your purchase. They won’t match prices from Target.com or other online retailers, but if they put the same item on sale less than a week after you buy it, they’ll give you back the difference.

Sign up for the Birthday Club. If you sign your kids up for Target’s Birthday Club,” they’ll get a special birthday offer every year (About.com says that offer is a coupon for $5 off any $50 purchase.)

2012 Indianapolis 500

 
Carl Fisher was the original founder of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1909. Two years later, on May 30th, 1911, the first Indy 500 race was held. Paying a one dollar admission 80,000 people were in attendance to watch the “International 500-Mile Sweepstakes Race.”

The Indy 500 has been held annually every Memorial Day weekend since 1911. It is the largest single-day sporting event. The race did not take place in 1917-1918 and 1942-1945 during America’s participation in World Wars.

Speedway, Indiana is home to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Indy 500 race is on a 2.5 mile, paved, oval track covering 500 miles, which is 200 laps.

Festivities usually begin a week before the race and include lavish parties and celebrations.

May – National Salsa Month

 
Summer is almost here and May is National Salsa Month!

For those who don’t know much about salsa, it translates to “sauce” and its origins trace back as far as the Aztec civilization! Thanks to it’s fresh and healthy ingredients, salsa replaced ketchup as the top selling condiment in North America in 1997.

I’m not sure how this monthly holiday came about, but who cares, we love it. With Cinco de Mayo this weekend, it’s time to really get our fill of Mexican flavors; starting with – salsa!

Salsa is seen as many things, a dip, a party food, an ingredient and to some a condiment. It makes a wonderful snack, is a must-have at any party, and can easily jazz up boring old recipes.

Chiles are the main ingredient in most salsa’s. Adding othere ingredients will create a delicious salsa that can be used with chips to meat.

If you are culinary challenged there are terrific recipes online or you can check this site daily for a salsa recipe through the month of May. Salsa makes everything better!

National Physical Fitness and Sports Month

National Physical Fitness and Sports Month - Get moving!May 1st – 31st is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month.

What a great time to promote the benefits of physical activity for adults.

Getting active increases your chances of living longer and can help you:

   *Control your blood pressure, blood sugar, and     weight
   *Raise your “good” cholesterol
   *Prevent heart disease, colorectal cancer, and     type 2 diabetes

Here are some tips to help you get active:

  *Aim for at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate activity a week. This     includes things like walking fast, dancing, or biking.

  *Do muscle-strengthening activities at least 2 days a week. Be sure to     strengthen all major muscle groups including the legs, hips, back, chest,     stomach, shoulders, and arms.

It’s also the perfect time to teach your children a healthy lifestyle and help combat childhood obesity by getting your child more physically active and interested in sports.

Getting your child involved in soccer, t-ball, flag football, or gymnastics, etc., can help them build motor skills, encourage a healthy lifestyle and continued physical activity as they get older. Although some parents may want to avoid the competitive environment, it’s important to remember most youth sports for younger kids are non-competitive.

Unfortunately, around age 9 is when many sports begin to get competitive. If your child isn’t interested in competitive sports take this month to find a sport or league that can get them more active. Check your local YMCA, schools, and church leagues.
