More Birthday Savings

Every now and then I like to post deals that I got and show you how much I saved. I don’t do this to brag but because I am excited about saving money and I want to inspire you to save. ūüôā

Cuddlebug’s birthday is this week. He is my baby. He is my heart.¬† I can’t believe he is turning six. Where has the time gone?¬†¬†

Cuddlebug’s¬†interests have changed a lot over the past six years and then in a way, they really haven’t changed much at all.¬† They have just developed more.¬† He is still into cars, trucks, balls, and Magnext.¬† His newest interest is¬†badges and handcuffs.¬† He says he wants to be a cop someday.¬†It is bedtime and I’m feeling a big nostaligic so I better get on to the deals.

I have explained many times before about purchasing birthday and Christmas items throughout the year. Target is known to clearance their toys after Christmas (usually in January) and then in the summer (usually in July). There are some good clearance items other times of the year too. You just have to catch them at the right times.

When Target has their toys on clearance I usually take the opportunity to purchase things that I know my kids will like. I put them away for the next birthday or Christmas and this saves a lot of money.

Magnext magnet set – reg $19.99, $9.98 clearance

G.I. Joe R.H.I.N.O. vehicle – reg $49.99, $12.48 clearance

Air Hogs Moto Frenzy – reg $24.99, $6.24 clearance

Cherokee leather blue and orange shoes – reg $17.99, $4.48 clearance

Door hanger kit – reg $3.99, $.98 clearance

Animal adventure sticker book – $1.00 from Target dollar section

Color Wonder soft sticks – $1??
Everything I purchased came from Target except for the Color Wonder sticks.

At regular prices this would have cost around $122-$125 but I paid about $36. As you can see, shopping throughout the year saves a lot of money.

What deals have you found lately?

    Hi, may I ask which target you bought the G.I. Joe R.H.I.N.O. vehicle from? I really want one for my cousin. Thank you so much.

    Daniel, I think I purchased it from one of the Target stores in Charlotte, NC. I purchased it last year though so they no longer carry the RHINO vehicle. Thanks for dropping by.
