We have very few stores in our area and the ones we have are small which means their stock is small, too. Finding things on clearance is not easy and it usually clears out quickly even at 50% off. When I see images of clearance sales elsewhere I am shocked that there is more on clearance at those stores than my store ever had of the items to begin with. So after Christmas Clearance Shopping is not one of our biggest shoe box stockpile shopping times of the year like it is for so many others. But Sarah went hunting, as always, hoping to find something for our shoe boxes.
These are decorated zipper bags and came out to 2 cents each. The smaller snack bags have 60 in each pack making them just under 2 cents each and should be large enough for the candy. Two cents is the best price I have gotten in the past few
years and it is fun to have the decorated ones. I used a prepaid VISA gift card I won a giveaway for this and Fred's.
Fred's Super Dollar
These are the items she was able to pick up at Fred's. The penguin cups will go perfectly with the other penguin items I received for Christmas. The snowman pad was from Mighty Dollar. Sarah likes to make letter writing sets for her older girls and will put a few of these sheets in each one.
Dollar Tree FREE Shopping Trip
A couple months ago I received a $10 Dollar Tree gift card from a blog giveaway I entered and won. My mind went to Dollar Tree dolls! Sarah suggested I hang onto it for after Christmas clearance sales. Great idea -- I was able to get twice as much! These are the items she was able to find at ours (she said there wasn't much). More penguins for our penguin themed boxes. We ended up paying 14 cents after the gift card.
Were you able to get any after Christmas clearance?
