It’s December 26th – time to start Christmas shopping! For NEXT Christmas that is. Start watching for stores to be marking down their Christmas merchandise as much as 90% off!
Some items to look for:
- Wrapping Paper, Bows, Gift Bags, and Tape
- Home Decor and Lights
- Gift Sets – Snacks, Coffee, etc (check the expiration dates)
- Stocking Stuffer Toys
- Misc. – Ornament Hooks, Extension Cords, and Light Timers
- Household Items – Paper Towels, Kleenex, Dish Soap, Hand Soap, etc.
The best part is, if you look for neutral items, you could potentially use them year-round! I suggest waiting for at least 75% off, but if you live in a heavily populated area, 50% might be as low as your store will go. Make sure you watch the register as your items are rung up to see if you are getting the right prices.
Most importantly – if you don’t need or can’t afford it DON’T BUY IT!
