Walmart generally has some pretty sweet deals, but what if there was a way for you to save even more money at the retail giant? If you're someone who heads right for the clearance section when you enter a store, this money-saving tip is for you. By checking which of your local Walmart locations has your desired item on clearance, you'll save a big chunk of money and a great deal of time. To learn how to find your favorites on clearance at Walmart, read on, and to see which hour to avoid the store, This Is the Absolute Worst Time to Shop at Walmart, Employees Say.

Clearance items can vary by location, so just because someone else scored a great clearance item at Walmart, that doesn't necessarily mean the deal will be available at your local store. To avoid the travel and trouble of trying to track something down in person, you can check where the product is on clearance online.

If you frequent Walmart social media pages and hashtags—such as #walmartclearancefinds or Walmart Clearance Finders Group—you're already up to date on what has been marked down. If you don't spend your time scrolling Walmart's social media channels, you can also select an item from the site itself.

According to Wallet Hackers, the key to finding out where the deals are is the Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) number. Once you identify the item you want to purchase, you'll need to find the eight-digit SKU number for the item. Some social media users will include the SKU with their post, but if they don't, you can simply search the product's name on Walmart's website and get the SKU number from there—it will be the last eight numbers of the URL.

Then, you can head over to BrickSeek, where you can put in the SKU number and your zip code. The site will then display any of the Walmart stores near you that have that item on clearance at the moment. It will show you how many of them are in stock and how much the product has been discounted, so you know when you're getting the best deal there is!
