Most stores follow something called the 3-3-2 rule.  This applies to every Holiday except for Christmas. This is important to know when you are trying to get post holiday deals. Here is how it works:

Year-round this is how Clearance works.  However, it may vary from store to store.

Monday: Infants department, Kids clothing and Electronics (maybe food also)
Tuesday: Women’s clothing, Domestics
Wednesday:  Men’s clothing, Garden, Toys, Health and Beauty
Thursday:  Lingerie, Shoes, Housewares, Sporting Goods, Luggage
Friday:  Cosmetics, Hardware, Auto, Home Improvement and Jewelry


The first 3 days after the holiday are 50% off.

The next 3 days are 75% off.

The next 2 days are 90%.

After that it’s gone.

Valentines 3-3-2

Easter 3-3-2

4th of July 3-3-2 (The dates always stay the same since the Holiday is always on July 4th)
July 5 = 50% off

July 8 = 75% off

July 10 = 90% off

Halloween (The dates always stay the same since the Holiday is always on October 31st)

Nov 1st = 50% off

This should help you out when trying to get the best deals on Clearance items!
