Ye 'Ol Target


There's more than meets the eye here.  Clearance online is one thing, but the clearance rack in the Electronics section at your local Target, that's a whole different story.

I regularly browse the items here. There's always an array of the overstocked items, such as xbox games, mp3 accessories, laptop speakers, and my favorite, the returned items.  I scored a 22" Sylvania flatscreen tv originally priced for $229 for $165.  The packaging isn't as "pretty" because, as the tag mentions, it's been previously opened.  If that's the case and your looking to gift it to someone, I suggest you get creative with overall wrapping presentation. 

My suggestions:

(1) Take it out the box and put a big bow around it (like in those fancy Lexus holiday commercials-finally!) but keep it hidden away until Christmas Day or other day...

(2) If it needs to be delivered, take it out the original packaging and place it in a microwave box, or something less exciting, and then wrap it in a big bow inside the box. Suprise! Not so sucky present after all.

(3) If the original packaging is plain old ugly, make it pretty.  Here's a Flickr with some pretty & original wrapping ideas.
