First, Clearance sections are always in the inner end of the aisle. So, I never walk the main aisles - always the back so I can see everything on Clearance. Next, if I spot something interesting, I take a look at what the discount is. Do not just look at the sign. Look at that lovely orange sticker and on the very upper right corner, you will see how much it's marked off. The highest I usually see is 70% off. Target always tries to sell everything at 15 or 30% off. I will only buy something if it's 50 or 70% off. And it does happen - much more often than you think. Side note: If something ends in a "4", it almost always means that's the lowest price it'll go.
Here's an example of what you might see.

Here are some recent finds! Scored these yesterday so feel free to check out your local store. :) (Yes - I'm addicted to lighting.)
|Originally $25, Sold $10|
|Originally $40, Sold $6 ($9 purchased 3 weeks ago)|
|Originally $20, Sold $8|
|Originally $150, Sold $30 without shade|
On the lighting note, I also purchased 2 of these from Home Depot. They were nearly sold out at every store in Chicago land so I was ecstatic when they had them just a city away. $35 each ($39 originally) with coupon code: RESELLERRATINGS!
I can't wait to show you where each of these fixtures made it into our home. :)
