Rave: Target Deals and Steals



We had to run to Target today for a few things and couldn't help but do a run through of their post Christmas clearance section of toys. Some were strange things that I can't imagine why anyone would buy at even 75% off, let alone full price. But there were some good deals in there too. (Lots of Play-doh and Moon Sand if you allow those horribly messy projects in your house.)

My favorite steal was this fun little doozie. The kids are itching to set it up and get puppeting--even Alex, which he will surely deny if asked. (Why isn't the girl with the puppets hiding like she's supposed to? Geez!) It's normally 69.99 but it was marked down to 17. It even has a little spotlight and whiteboard for the show title. Hilarious. Plus, now Aidan doesn't have to whine about his clunky, malfunctioning vacuum. I found a cool mini-Dirt Devil vacuum for 3 bucks. So run Run RUN and find a few steals and deals at a Target near you.

LOL Jessica...I think that's a niece on the Jeremy's side.

So, did the boys play with this today. I thought Avery's face full of excitement about his new big box was so funny. he seemed to be guarding it with his life.

take it easy jess. she's my niece and she's 10 so she probably only really does want a video of the slideshow and nothing more.

Target deals are the BEST! I found a beanbag there for $1.50 once. And the boys were so excited, of course it was pink. And I told them that they could give it to their little friend Abby whose b-day was in a few weeks, but much to Trav's dismay they fell in love with it and we still have a PINK bean bag for my 3 BOYS.
