This is a general guideline for how the stores do markdowns, it may vary in your store.

The best way to see if your store is on this schedule is to:

1. Pay attention while you are shopping and see which departments are getting marked down

2. Ask an employee. I find the employees actually marking down items are more helpful than the cashiers.

MONDAY: Kids Clothing, Stationary Items, Electronics, Baby

TUESDAY: Domestics, Food, Women’s Clothing, Pets

WEDNESDAY: Men’s Clothing, Toys, Lawn and Garden

THURSDAY: Housewares, Shoes, Lingerie, Sporting Goods, Music, Movies, Books, Decor, Luggage

FRIDAY: Auto, Cosmetics, Hardware, Jewelry

So what that means is that if you are looking for specific items

- say men’s clothing

- you will want to hit your store on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning to get all the latest markdowns.

Target typically starts at 15%, then goes to 30%, then 50% , then 75% and sometimes 90%.

For the most part 75% off is pretty much the best deal you will find. Again, you just need to learn your specific store.

In addition to the regular markdown schedule there are 2 big events:

Baby Clearance: January and July typically offer massive clearance throughout the baby department.

Toy Clearance: July and October are the clearance events at Target and Walmart for toys

- and of course we have already seen post- Christmas clearance. Fewer people are thinking Christmas in July than in October so you have a better shot at the best deals.


In my email today was a deal for Del Taco fan club right over HERE- if you register for the email newsletter they will send you a coupon for 2 free chicken soft tacos.You will also get a free milkshake on your birthday and other offers.
