(Home Alone 2, The Incredibles, & Muppets Take Manhattan)

Target Halloween Clearance – Great Deals!

 - by Christine

I ran into Target yesterday to pick up a few things, and I got totally distracted by the Halloween clearance!

I found the adorable light up owl pictured above and searched everywhere for a price tag or one in a box.  It turns out this was the display version, and the only one left!  I asked the manager how much it was and since there were none left she made up a price for it… $9.99!!!  SOLD! 8) (I looked it up on the Target website and it was normally $45, on sale for $27!)

So, I saved 78% on Mr. Owl!  Here’s the link to him on the Target website:  Philips Glitter Light Up Owl

Here are some of the other things I saw that were great deals!

  • Yard/Porch light up decor – 30-50% off – Between $15-30 for these
  • Halloween Candy (small bags) – 50% off – Normally around $4-$6, on sale for $2-$4
  • Witch & Pumpkin Kitchen Towels – 50% off – Now only $1.25 for a 2 pack
  • Pack of 15 Glow Sticks – $1

Various other Halloween baking items, lights, decorations, tshirts, and costumes are 50% off!  Great time to stock up for next year!  (Check the Dollar Bins & the Holiday section for deals!)
