    Default Day After Halloween Sales

    Does anyone know what is typically left at Michaels the day after Halloween in regards to decorations? (Mainly Lemax stuff). I normally always purchase my things in August and blow my whole budget, but I was informed by a few people that the day after Halloween everything is really cheap. (50%?? or more?? Not sure) Now I'm not expecting there to be anything extremely exciting leftover (and besides, I already bought all the big Lemax houses I wanted this year!) but I would like to maybe pick up some of the smaller accents and little figures and stuff. Has anyone shopped the day after? Did you actually find the big expensive houses or was it a joke and not worth the time?

    Does anyone know of any other places that might be good? Last year I went to some of the pop up Halloween stores the day after, and even with the 50% off, that was about the standard pricing of what the items should be. Still WAY over priced. Where are some good places to keep an eye on?

    In my area, Target clerks in are competition with shoppers on the day after to see who can fill up their carts and get mdse off the sales floor. Target fills the carts up and starts carting it off to the back room (where some of it gets donated or sold to places like Goodwill for a tax deduction we assume) leaving very little on the floor for people to chose from for the sale. One year I felt like I was going to have to fight one of the clerks over an item I saw that I wanted that they were grabbing to put in the cart. Think it was a costume accessory like a ball and chain maybe. I even pulled things out of their stock cart before they pushed it to the back when they went to gather up stuff from another aisle. I understand "competing" with other customers on a first-come, first-served basis but was shocked we were essentially competing with Target who clearly advertised a sale but wanted to limit what was available to buy at the sale price. Big turn off!

    From what I saw on a planogram info sheet that Walmart clerks had left on the shelf while stocking halloween this year, they will have a day after sale. Don't know if they are a quick to erase halloween from the shelves as Target is.

    My Walgreeens starts packing halloween up the day or two after as well. How fast seems to depend on what kind of staffing they have available.Probably true for my other local pharmacies like CVS and Rite-Aid.

    Places like Dollar Tree and 99 Cent Only Stores don't have sales. Just pull the mdse off the shelves for the next stuff coming out. Reminds me I should pick up some of those 16-inch skellies from DT before they are all gone. Don't need them for this year but will need them for projects I'd like to work on before next halloween.

    Our Michaels is already getting cleared out of Halloween items. The Lemax Spooky Town pieces have been 50 percent off for over a week now. The large funkins are down to $9.99 (from $24.99!!). Last year our Michaels had just about nothing left after Halloween, and I expect the same this year.

    I also found Target was slim pickings after Halloween last year. Here they only go 30 percent off at first. Then 50, then if anything is left, 75, then 90. But nothing is left by then. I used to go and get costumes at Target when they were 90 percent off. So maybe that is still an option.

    CVS - about a week after Halloween - can have some good deals at 75 percent off in my experience.

    I go to Pier 1 and to world market to get after Halloween stuff. Our Micheal's is pretty much cleared out of things and last year I only picked up some things to use with card making.

    Oh, and I also go to JoAnne Fabrics to pick up clearance items.

    Overall, I was quite disappointed with all the Halloween offerings this year. Every store seemed to have the same things as last year, only less (especially Joann and Michaels) while Spirit only had new full sized props and not so many smaller ones (the only ones I noticed that I had any interest in were the skelemingos and the skull chandelier that matches the candelabra, which they were out of).

    I do a lot of clearance shopping every year, so I have something to look forward to the next year. This year I don't think there's anything I'll be rushing out to buy.

    Looks like I should have been checking Michaels the past few weeks. I saw they had50% off halloween and then 20% of sale prices. that would be 70% off!!I bet there won'teven be anything left tomrorowwill there?? Anyone ever go to michaels the day after??

    I'd like to pick up just some of the small little accent pieces and small things to add to the villages. I don't really have any room for big houses or anything anymore anyways! lol

    I never thought dollar tree had clearance sales either, but last year Nov 1,my dollar tree had half off all their Halloween.

    I've found better clearance at joanns and Michaels in Nov and dec than the day after. They've been running half off sales for the last month, so you'll have to wait a while longer for 70 or 90% off. If you're looking for clearance fabric its probably going to sell out fast, but anything else I'd wait for.
