Weekend Update

If you are a Target shopper, I suggest you get there in the next couple of days. I was there this week, picking up some cat food and many things were on clearance. The prices on winter clothing were especially impressive. And if you haven't been there in awhile and were waiting for the stock up packs of products like Clorox, Bounty paper towels, etc. to go on clearance, they have been removed from the shelves and replaced with Valentine's Day. I hadn't been there in awhile and was surprised to find almost everything gone, except for some Lysol and Swiffer Dusters, which were moved to a different part of the store. Normally I find clearance lasts longer than that and the last time I had seen the display, it said 15% off. I would think it would have gotten to 30% off at least. Anyway, here's more:

I believe a big part of saving money is not only about using coupons, sales, rebates and freebies, but also being educated about saving money. Smart Money magazine has a monthly feature "10 things you weren't told" ie. 10 Things Your Credit Card Company Won't Tell You and 10 Things Your Car Insurer Won't Tell You for example. Here it the complete list online. Very educational and could save you a lot of money!
