Endcap Treasure Hunts

Endcaps are displays for a product placed at the end of an aisle. Target, CVS, Walgreens and Walmart not only use endcaps to promote new products, they also place clearance items here. I never paid attention to endcaps until I started using coupons regularly, but now I circle through stores looking for them. You never know what you might find – like the Skin Effects self-tanning lotion and sunscreen that were 90% off at CVS, which I then paired with the $5 off CVS coupons to make money on my purchase.

Today, I got eight bags of Iams Naturals cat food from a Walmart clearance endcap for a total of $2.86. They were on sale for $3.33 and there are $3 coupons in the Procter & Gamble (P&G) newspaper inserts from 12/14 — so eight bags for less than the sale price of one bag. Since the daddy feral cat is back (my daughter has named him Hairball Harry), we now have a fifth feline mouth to feed so I love these cat food deals.

The next time you’re at Target, Walmart, CVS or Walgreens, check for clearance endcaps. You might find something interesting!
