There are many good deals to be had on items in the clearance section. I will admit that sometimes the items are defective, chipped, scratched, or well beyond their expiration date. That's why it is always best to examine the merchandise carefully and check the expiration date before making a purchase. Assuming that goes well, then feel free to purchase the items + any coupons you might have available.
My local Meijer had Tylenol PM in the clearance section this week.
50ct. Tylenol PM Caplets: regular price $7.34
Clearance price: $5.13
$1 off coupon from Smart Source
Meijer also had the 90 ct. Tylenol PM gel tabs on sale for $9.79. The $1 off coupon is also viable for this deal. However, the expiration date on the 90ct. gel tabs was in November of THIS year whereas the 50 ct caplets weren't due to expire until 2014. Given that I do not have a large family and my headaches aren't so frequent that I'd go through 8-9 tylenol a month, I decided to go with the 50 ct. box.
On to my next items: 2 coffee mugs in the clearance section of Walmart:
18oz. porcelain Christmas-themed coffee mugs, regular price $1.48 each
Clearance price: .74 each X 2
90% off of the .74 price= 7 cents
Total: 14 cents for two coffee mugs or 7 cents per
So again, be sure to peruse the clearance section of your local supermarket while you're there. You never know what you might spot there!
