So you really didn't have any major plans for the last couple of days of the year, did you? New Year's Eve isn't here yet, and the kids are still on school break, so everyone's in kick-back mode. But as lazy as you may feel, you'll be well rewarded if you can get up the energy to head to Walmart for its end-of-the-year clearance sale. Because seriously, the buys you can get RN rival anything you snagged back on Black Friday.
The superstore is looking to clear out its current stock by offering up to 60 percent off items in all departments: clothing, electronics, toys, furniture, housewares, you name it. Many of the prices were pretty good to begin with, so slicing them in half makes the merchandise even more appealing. For instance, a women's long-sleeved tunic with a spliced solid or plaid print is down to $15 from the original $37. TVs, tablets, and laptops are hundreds of dollars off their regular prices. And you could fill the kids' closets with new coats, pajama sets, sweatpants, and leggings and still have money left over for their next school fundraiser.
Whether you're in the market for some essentials or looking for trinkets for the kids, here are some of the best finds at Walmart's year-end sale.
