Look For Clearance Items When You Shop

by Pam on May 14, 2012

I have recently become more proactive at looking for the clearance items sections when I visit various stores including grocery stores, pharmacies, and even clothing stores.  Whether it be due to upcoming expiration dates or a small insignificant amount of damage to clothing, many retail outlets have a clearance section that allows their customers to buy products at a deep discount.

If you want to save money when you shop, I recommend that you check out the clearance items first before being willing to pay regular price for any items you need.  For example, the other day I stopped by a pharmacy to fill a prescription and discovered that a high quality body wash was priced at under $1.50.  A brand of shampoo I like was about 65 cents, and so on.  So, I stocked up on some items that I know I will use for a fraction of the price.

Be prepared to look in random places for clearance items.  At our local grocery store they had a shopping cart full of discounted shampoo and conditioner near the milk section.  Clearance items are not always placed where you might expect, so if you don’t see any items on clearance, don’t be afraid to ask if and where any clearance items may be located.

I have saved a lot of money over the years by being aware of and taking advantage of clearance items.  After all, we work hard for our money, right?  So it’s nice when we don’t have to pay full price for everything.
