Default Kinder Mats on Clearance

I just wanted to give DCPs a heads up that the folding KinderMats are on clearance for $2.28 or something ridiculously cheap right now at Target. Normally only $9.99 but you can't beat less than $3! I don't really "need" them now but got 2 in case I do in the future!

those are the real small ones though, right?? I bought some at BTS time last year and ended up returning them because they were so tiny. I love the ones I have now but can't seem to find them (R&R agency gave me mine 12 years ago!).

I checked WalMart today and they're 14.97. That seems high for what they are.

And if you got a Target red-card it's another 5% off.

The 1" ones were $2 at Walmart here so I bought 12 and used them as soft play areas for the kids. I use cots for nap but, bought them anyway for this reason! They seem to love it!

That's a good idea!!

I used to use those as a safe area for my special dcg because while sitting she used to tip over.

I have a stack of those that I retired when the NHI people gave me the really nice thick ones earlier this year.

The ones at the Target in my town aren't on clearance yet. I could use a couple extra's.

My sister (who works for Target Corp) says clearances are area directed and not all areas have the same sales and/or clearances.

A tip she passed along is that any clearance price ending in a 4 (for ex $2.94) is the FINAL clearance price. If the price is $2.96, then it will go lower....
