Toys and Clothes for the Kiddies
The word on the street is that July is the time for toys and baby stuff to go on mass clearance in the retail world. I saw evidence of this at Target tonight. The toy aisles were filled to the brim with red clearance stickers. There are some excellent deals to be had, and if you are smart, you will take this opportunity to do some early Christmas shopping. It's always much more economical to shop for the holidays at times like these rather than wait until the last minute when you are screwed into paying whatever price the stores want to ask because you need a gift ASAP.
Kmart also has tons of toys on clearance. In fact, last time I was there, the clearance toys were all 50% off original prices. Pair that with this coupon for $5 off any toy purchase of $20 or more, and you have yourself a deal!
And as for outfitting the babes and kidlets for fall/back-to-school: if you are an Old Navy fan who likes to shop online to avoid dealing with crowds and nuisance, count yourself lucky because right now (until 7/16) you can use the coupon code "btschool" for FREE SHIPPING on any order that includes a children's item. Be brilliant and begin your online shopping adventure at Ebates to get 8% back on your purchase.
However, if you prefer to actually take the trip to the store, make sure to visit Old Navy Weekly and see if you can snag a coupon to take along!
