Target Lookout Alert: Discounted Bulk Items

February 24, 2010

I’ve noticed that a few of our Targets have been drastically discounting their bulk items from 50-75% off. I’m not sure if they are bringing in new items or just doing away with selling the bulk packages. (I’m guessing it’s the latter, though.)

I got lucky and they had a few items that I was actually almost out of, so it was really profitable for me to grab them. I snagged these:

20 Pack of Dial Moisture Balance Soap for $3.84 – About $.19 a bar. -  I’ll share these with my family.

30 Pack of Quaker Oatmeal for $3.84 – This is normally the price for a 10 pack in our area

4 – 8.4oz Edge Sensitive Skin Shave Gel for $4.24 – $1.06 a bottle isn’t a bad price!

12 Giant Premium Paper Towel Rolls for $6.74 – About $.56 a roll. This will literally last me a year as I try not to use paper towels any more.  I only bring them out for parties and play-dates.

24 Triple Rolls (72 regular roll size) of Charmin Ultra Soft for $8.98. – A little over $.12 a roll, figuring reg. roll size.

I hope that you are able to find some of these deals at your local Target, as well. Remember that clearance sales vary greatly by store and region. I’m just sharing these so you can check yours on your next trip.

Oooh. I love target clearance on things I actually need! Can’t wait to look later this week! Thanks for the heads up!

I noticed that too! I got the quaker oatmeal, but mine was $4.88. I still thought it was a pretty good deal.

Our Target is doing the same, I was told they put the bulk items in their garden department on the off-season to fill the space. Now that they are putting out their outdoor stuff they have to get rid of it. Hopefully the bulk items come back in the fall:)

Aw…hang in there, Alyssa! Your sacrifice now we’ll bring twice as many amazing deals soon. I never thought I’d have a car paid off and now we have two. It’s amazing how the savings add up.

I just got back from Target…50% off of diapers, plus with being able to use coupons, I got a couple of boxes for only $15.50 each!!! Also, ours had some makeup items 75% off (2 pack of mascara for $2.75)! Scott TP 50% off! I used so many coupons that were in conjunction with the deals, that I had to push two carts (one had kids!!). Thanks for the great tips!!!!

I also went to target today and bought the paper towels 50% off and I also bought the 2pack of frosted flakes for $3.18 and I used coupons as well.They did not have the gillete body wash for $1.99 they were all out.

Oh yeah! I forgot about the Frosted Flakes….and Special K cereal at ours. I didn’t have my coupons with me so I wanted to take a chance and wait. I’m sure they’ll be gone by the time I go back, though. But, that’s OK. At least someone else will enjoy the savings, right? :)

So glad you were able to find a few things, too!

Ok…so I’m soooo jealous! NO PAPER TOWELS???? how do you do it? do you use cloth napkins? I would love some tips to not use soooo many paper towels…such a waste! Jaycie…what is your secret!!????

:) I know. It seems so hard to do–to give up paper towels–but the simplest way to not use them is to just not have them around. You can also read my posting I just posted: that might help.
