The Best Things to Buy After Christmas!
Christmas has already come and gone. Which means stores are already getting prepared for the next holiday; clearancing out Christmas decorations, wrapping paper and much more!
While a typical shopper might be all shopped out this time of the year. A frugal shopper is ready to cash in on all the great clearance deals! Because who doesn’t love the sound of 50% or even 75% off!
Here is what you should be stocking up on after Christmas!
2. Clothing and Outerwear
Open the paper the day after Christmas and all you will see is store
wide clearance events. This year Macy’s opened their doors with 65% off Sweaters and Outerwear with even an additional 10% at checkout on some items! Keep your eyes peeled because there are more deals yet to come! Especially with the mild weather right now in the eastern United States.
3. Future Holiday Gifts or even Wedding Gifts
Wedding season might be months away but if you already know you’re going to need a wedding gift for your Aunt Sue and soon to be Uncle Joe, why not look now when small appliances, home decor, dishware, and housewares items are at an all time low.
4. Christmas Decorations
Very similar to holiday wrap, stores want to get rid of it! They have no place to store artificial christmas trees and they certainly aren’t going to get full price for a countdown to Christmas calendar in January. Need new stockings for next year? This is the time to get it.
5. Fragrance Sets & Body and Hand Lotion
Cosmetic brands package gift sets together for the holiday season with sample sizes, travel totes to provide that perfect gift for someone. However after the holiday has passed department stores want to get rid of these sets to make room for regular sized perfume bottles and clear their inventory.
6. Bakeware & Barware
Especially holiday cookie cutters, wine glasses and drink shakers. They make great gifts for the holidays but don’t tend to see out during the regular season. Get ready for the New Year with new stemware!
7. Toys and Small Gifts
Department stores have an overwhelming toy inventory after Christmas with no place to store the excess, meaning it winds up on the clearance rack. Be sure to check out your favorite toy stores like Target, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, and Walmart. Stock up on gifts for upcoming birthdays!
8. Paper Goods
If you don’t mind papergoods with reindeers, Santa Claus or ornaments then you’re in luck! Get paper goods 50% or more off due to their holiday theme.
9. Gift Baskets
Pre-made gift baskets especially food gift sets, just be sure to check the expiration dates on all food items!
Didn’t get your sister that bracelet you knew she wanted because it was over you budget? Go to the store and check back, after the holidays stores have great Jewelry sales! So buy it now, and save it for a birthday gift or maybe graduation.
