My next tip is to utilize the Cartwheel App. The cool thing is you can scan every item in your cart to see if there's an additional discount. These shoes had been marked down to $7.48 which is awesome, but at the same time Cartwheel had a coupon for an extra 20% off all clearance. I got these for $5!
I also recommend signing up for Target to text you coupons, as well as checking out the coupons Target has available on line. They allow you to double dip coupons and combine them too! I was able to score my much loved fur vest for an 20% off, although it was new to scores because of mobile coupons.
Don't forget about their website. The prices aren't the same in both places. Sometimes it's better in store and sometimes it's better online. If the price is better online you can have picked up in the store (when available) and get the better price without having to pay shipping.
I have found a lot of great deals online line, such as these these ankle pants. They were running a buy one get one half off sale, so I scored these and a great pair of olive ones for $9.
I also scored these leather riding boots for $30 (they are now only $24!) online. There are a lot of hidden gems on their website!
Lastly, I like to stroll through the end caps at the back of departments to look for additional clearance items I might need. Before paying full price, I always see what the clearance options are and then double check for additional discounts using the Cartwheel App and mobile coupons too.
Now, I understand it can be easy to go to Target and "Buy all the Things!" I've bought my fair share of things off the clearance rack I've only worn a few times. I think it's important to shop with a purpose. I only go to Target maybe twice a month, and always with a need in mind, such as getting a replacement for a worn out piece or checking to see if something on my wish list has been marked down. It can get easy to sucked into the amazingness that is Target. Use these tips to help you buy the things you need, so you don't end up like this girl.
