Time to stock up

Have been in HD a bunch over the last few days to get parts and pieces for a couple of large repairs and they are clearing out a lot of merchandise in our local stores. Mostly it is odds and ends of the stuff I use a lot of like drill bit kits, recip saw blades, driver bit sets and saw blades. Mos t of the consumables are in the 30 to 50% off range. I stocked up on drive bit/drill bit combos and bought some more recip blades. Got some Avanti br and framing blades (average quality) at 2 for 1, so that made them $3 a pie ce. Etc., etc.
Every store is different, and all of them seem to be just clearing out thei r excess inventory of those types of things.
One thing that surprised me was they had DeWalt drill/driver combos for $12 9 at one of the stores. It was the better combo than normal and comes out to $50 off. This is it:

Note it is marked at $179. The drill combos weren't at all stores, nor wer e the other consumables. I asked the tool guy why they were clearing out a ll that stuff, and he said it was to make room for new merchandise. Sooooo .... it varies from store to store as to what you sill see and what is avai lable.
Had to say something about those combo kits, though. I saw a couple of con tractors that had three a piece in their cart so your mileage may vary!

not a bad deal
wonder what the new stuff will improve on
heard that hd do not buy their stock and so dewalt makes less money but cheaper than sending it back to dewalt
it makes me wonder if the prices will continue to drop until they get it it all out the door
at less busy stores the prices might keep going lower until it moves
