This Is the Absolute Best Day of the Week to Go to Target

When it comes to saving big at Target, timing is everything.

If you want to score great deals at Target (and let's be honest, who doesn't?) there's one way to know you're always getting the best price. According to one avid Target shopper and blogger who's made a handy Target Markdown Chart, the store drops its prices for clearance sales on a fixed schedule—meaning going to Target at the right time can equal big savings on whatever you need. Monday through Friday, if you cruise the clearance section, you're sure to see between 30 and 70 percent markdowns on everything from pet food to patio furniture.

So what is the absolute best day of the week to shop at Target? Well, it depends on what you're looking to buy. Read on for a breakdown of which markdowns happen when, so you can save big on your next Target shopping trip.
