CHEAP SKATE: Bargain Hunting at Target

Welcome to Cheap Skate, our biweekly column offering tips and tricks for bargain hunting. We know how broke you are. So we’re going to help you get the most for your money!

Target is a great place to shop. It feels less warehouse-y than Wal-Mart but more accessible than Macy’s. Plus, it’s got Starbucks and Pizza Hut!

I was excited to catch these shop-smart-at-Target tips on Pinterest:

The 411 on Sticker Prices:
If the price ends in 8, it will be marked down again. If it ends in a 4, it’s the lowest it will be.

Target’s mark down schedule:
MONDAY: Kids’ Clothing, Stationery (office supplies, gift wrap), Electronics
TUESDAY: Women’s Clothing and Domestics
WEDNESDAY: Men’s Clothing, Toys, Health and Beauty
THURSDAY: Lingerie, Shoes, Housewares
FRIDAY: Cosmetics, Housewares, Automotives

Endcap Display Discounts:
Items on display at the end of every aisle (i.e. endcap displays) are usually well-priced. In those endcaps farthest away from the main aisles are usually the most clearance items.
