Lowe's discounts a selection of clearance items, with deals starting at 20 cents. That beats our October mention (which had a higher starting price) and is among the best general clearance sales we've seen from Lowe's in over a year, yielding many price lows. Choose in-store pickup (stock varies by ZIP code) on most items to avoid shipping fees, which start at $5.99. Choose from tools, home decor, gardening items, lighting, and other products. A couple of best bets:
Harbor Breeze 54" Lynnhaven Vintage Iron Ceiling Fan for $94.50 ($95 off)
Porter-Cable 18-Volt Cordless Combo Kit (pictured) for $129 (low by $51)
