Pick Your Day
Because most Targets mark down certain departments on specific days for clearance, knowing that schedule can help you find the best deals.
"For instance, you'll find the best deals on clearance electronics on a Monday and sporting good clearance on Thursday," said Christy Palmer, founder of the All Things Target blog.
Here's a schedule Palmer said is good for most Targets:
Monday: electronics, accessories, kids' clothing, books, baby, stationery
Tuesday: domestic goods, women's clothing, pets, market (food items)
Wednesday: men's clothing, health & beauty, diapers, lawn & garden, furniture
Thursday: houseware, lingerie, shoes, toys, sporting goods, decor & luggage
Friday: auto, cosmetics, hardware, jewelry
