Old Navy...50% off Clearance Prices

I had to make a run to Old Navy this morning to make an exchange...trying to beat the after Christmas return lines, if you know what I mean....LOL LOL While I was there I browsed around and noticed that all Baby and Toddler Clearance was an additional 50% off the already marked clearance prices!! I ended up picking up 2 pairs of jeans for Little Miss for just $5.99 a pair!! Unfortunately, Little Man could also use a few new pair of jeans....but he is in the Boys Department and the 50% off does not work in that department!!

They also had lots and lots of hat & glove sizes, 2 for $6.50!! You must buy 2 to get this deal. They are regularly $10.50 each!! So an amazing deal!! They are warm nice and soft too!!

Lots of regular priced items throughout the store were 60% off too!! The kiddies were not in the mood to I was in-and-out quickly. May want to check your local Old Navy if you are out and about tonight or tomorrow, as these great deals look to be in store only!!

CVS Trip...

Made a quick CVS run late last night.....wanted to cash in on the 2-Day Free after Extra Bucks Specials before they ran out. Apparently, everyone else thought the same way.....they were out of almost everything I went in for.....Oh well, that's how it goes. Here is what I ended up with.....

-2- Crest 4.2 oz. Pro Health Toothpaste........$2.99 each **I used (2) $1.00/1 coupons from the December P&G inserts to make them just $1.99 each. Then they are printing $2.00 Extra Bucks for each tube this week(all week long). So Free toothpaste, I'll take it!!

-2- Hot Wheels Cars.......they are Buy 1 Get 1 Free this week. So I paid $1.49 for the 2 of them!! Great to put on the top of a present for a car fan!! Or even a great stocking stuffer!!

-1- Bag of Hershey's Kisses.......$2.00. Needed these for Peanut Putter Blossom cookies I made tonight.

So my total was $7.83...I used 7.00 in Extra Bucks from 2 weeks ago, and paid 83 cents OOP. Plus, I earned $4.00 back in Extra Bucks for the Crest.

KB Update...

Ran to the mall yesterday and popped into KB Toys...I noticed all the giant signs.....40% off whole store at the entrance of the store. It just drew me in...What can I say, I am a stickler for good deals!! LOL LOL I was already done my Christmas shopping, but had to check out to see if any deals were to be had. Perhaps a few items for the gift tote??

The store was jam packed with merchandise...Oh and customers too!! I checked on a couple of prices on items that I had previously purchased over the past few weeks. I was pleasantly surprised that the prices were a little cheaper than regular retail prices. Surprising for a Store-Closing sale......all I have to say is Linen's N Things with regards to finding no deals at a store closing sale.

I did notice that KB did up the prices on some of their items, on many items they placed a new higher price sticker over the old lower priced sticker. Not significantly some instances a buck, more expensive items...maybe a couple bucks. Just modest amounts...nothing out of the water!!

Even with the mark-up....when you take into account the 40% discount it is still a bit cheaper than the regular prices at Walmart. I found a few items I picked up. One item I did get was a Power Ranger for just $ apposed to the $12.99 that I paid at Walmart a few weeks back.

Yes the signs say 40% off....but it's more like 20% off really, after you take in to accont the slight price mark up. If you are in the vicinity of a KB Toys over the next few days, I would pop in to see what you can find. It's definitely not like most store closings...where they mark items up so high that they were actually cheaper before the Going Out of Business Sale!! Also know that ALL SALES ARE FINAL!! So shop knowing it is yours for good!!
