Just after a season or right in the middle of a season is the best time to buy seasonal items. Christmas and holiday items start to go on sale in mid-December and stay on sale until the end of January. Summer items start going on sale in August and stay on sale until they are sold out.

Autumnal decorations and home good go on sale around October and stay on sale until the beginning of December. After big sales, Target donates unsold items to Goodwill, so keep an eye out for bulk deals at your local Goodwill stores.

8: Apply for a Target Card and Save 5% (or more) on Purchases Every Day
