Every retailer has its own little idiosyncrasies, and as a shopper, you can often use them to your advantage.

Target, for instance, usually marks down different product categories on specific days of the week.

So, if you know the schedule, you can plan to go on days when the types of products you want are more likely to be on sale.

Sam Grobart at Bloomberg Businessweek has put together a nice little guide on how to shop Target “like a pro.”

Here’s the schedule Target generally follows, according to Bloomberg Businessweek:

  • Monday: children’s clothing, electronics, stationary, office supplies, gift wrap
  • Tuesday: women’s apparel, domestics
  • Wednesday: men’s apparel, health and beauty, toys
  • Thursday: shoes, lingerie, housewares
  • Friday: cosmetics, automotive

Also, the products that are on sale at Target usually aren’t right up front. It makes sure to put the items in lower-traffic areas to heighten the “sense of discovery.”
