Although it can vary from store to store, Target generally marks down items on a set schedule. Now that I’m keeping my eye on a couple of departments (camping/kids clothes) it’s helpful to know when markdowns might be taken. Here, from My Frugal Adventures is the typical mark down schedule. Visit the linked article for a few helpful tips (including toy/baby clearance dates).

MONDAY: Kids Clothing, Stationary Items, Electronics, Baby
TUESDAY: Domestics, Food, Women’s Clothing, Pets
WEDNESDAY: Men’s Clothing, Toys, HBA, Lawn and Garden
THURSDAY: Housewares, Shoes, Lingerie, Sporting Goods, Music, Movies, Books, Decor, Luggage
FRIDAY: Auto, Cosmetics, Hardware, Jewelry

Now, to just make sure I don’t end up spending for the sake of grabbing a sale.
