40% off Clearance Prices at JCPenney

JCPenney has a huge clearance sale going on right now where all items marked down are an extra 40% off the lowest price.

These photos are from the Albany (Crossgates Mall) store in the girls department but there were plenty of clearance racks in all departments.

I found it odd that they had shorts on clearance but there were many that were perfect for Spring sports. I picked up a few of these that rang up $1.78 each!

Many racks of clearance. (For some reason, they did remove the scanners so you can no longer scan tickets to see final prices yourself.)

Items in all sizes are on clearance!

Here is what came in my box this month:


Napz – All-Natural Sleep Solution (a full size bottle to try)
Goodwipes – Down There Wipes For Gals (sample size)

Andalou Naturals – Renewal Face Cream Pods (2 sample sizes)
BiPro – Protein Water Orange + Caffeine (full size bottle)
Good Natured Selects – Veg-ables! I think I tried one…..my kids ate them all and loved them!

Live Performance Giveaway: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee


Presented by the Palace Theatre and Park Playhouse, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be live at the Cohoes Music Hall this Thursday, March 1 – Sunday, March 11!

Storyline: An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Tickets for these Park Playhouse Performances can be purchased in advance by calling 518-465-4663 or ONLINE HERE. Tickets are also available for purchase on the night of the show at the Cohoes Music Hall Box Office (Cohoes Box Office opens 2 Hours prior to showtime.) Tickets: $25 (Adults), $15 (Kids 12 & Under)

The Palace has generously provided me with family 4-pack of tickets to give away to TWO lucky winners! To enter, comment below with “pick me.” Two winners will be randomly selected to win on Tuesday night and can pick their preferred showtime. Showtimes are as follows:
Thurs, March 1 at 8pm

Fri, March 2 at 8pm
Sat, March 3 at 2pm & 8pm

Sun, March 4 at 2pm
Thurs, March 8 at 8pm
Fri, March 9 at 8pm

Sat, March 10 at 2pm & 8pm
Sun, March 11 at 2pm
