$1304 worth of toys (95 items) for $393 ;)



**I put a list of items, prices and discounts at the bottom of this post.

I admit it - I'm a shop a holic. And a deal-a-holic, especially when it comes to Target's clearance sale. I wait for it every January and July, to stock up for the coming Christmas for two reasons:

1) we have a lot of people to buy for
2) we buy toys and clothes for the women's and children's shelter, which is something my mom used to do when she was alive. I have a firm belief that no child should go without a present on Christmas morning, and that no parent should ever be in the position where they aren't able to give their child a present. We buy gifts in the hope that the holidays are a little better for those at the shelter.

So, obviously spending a thousand dollars on toys would be amazing - I would love being able to do that, but I just can't. However, what I can do is spend wisely to make the best use. With my son now, it's a little harder, because I know he'll want a couple bigger things like a video game or something, but this year he's into Legos and such, so I can still get a couple good things for him at the sale.

My daughter however, is still little, and is happy with little things, especially Littlest Pet Shop and anything related to dolls.

Anyway - back to the point - today, I bought $1,304 worth of toys at Target for...$393!!!!

Oh yeah, I am one happy camper. It's going to make for happy kids for me, and a great Christmas for the families at the shelter!





I cannot wait to drop the gifts off at the shelter tomorrow - it's going to be the highlight of my weekend!! Have a great weekend, everyone!!

  1. That is awesome! I live for Target's 75% off rack. I didn't even realize that their toys were marked down that far now and I hope I didn't miss the good ones! =/ Thanks for the reminder. =)
