πŸ›πŸ›’πŸŽ„The BEST things to Buy at AFTER Christmas Sales!! πŸ›πŸ›’πŸŽ„{get that bargain, girl!!πŸ˜‰}

Any frugal shopper knows that the day after Christmas sales is one of the best to shop!! You can save tons of cash simply by stocking up! There are tons of opportunities to look for, but some are better than others. Here are the BEST best items to grab after each Christmas season:

πŸ›πŸŽ„1. Candy

Here is a great tip someone just told me...Grab the red and green M&M’S 90% off sort and freeze them for future use! St. Patrick’s Day (green) and Valentine’s Day (red) are tight around the corner.

πŸ›πŸŽ„2. Wrapping Paper

Grab this stuff at 80% off for next holiday or look for non-Christmas specific patterns or solid colors that can be used for Birthdays and other gift giving! Why pay full price for this stuff that is only going to get ripped to pieces anyway?

πŸ›πŸŽ„3. Christmas lights

TWINKLE LIGHTS, both indoor and outdoor, will be deeply slashed in price after Christmas. You can literally find them for next to nothing. Why not stock up and be ready for the following seasons? Nobody likes paying full price for something like this.

πŸ›πŸŽ„4. Food and Baking Supplies

When the Christmas season hits, all kinds of cool seasonal cakes and supplies hit the shelves. Inevitably, these items will not sell out and be on the clearance shelf at the first of the year. Grab cake mixes and frostings for a discounted price and get creative with how you use them.

πŸ›πŸŽ„5. Small Toys

These stocking stuffers are always really inexpensive and they are absolutely perfect to buy in advance. They don’t take up a ton of storage space and you will have plenty of uses for them throughout the year. Birthdays, last minute gifts and even charities are all in need of this type of thing so stock up when you get the chance.

πŸ›πŸŽ„6. Bakeware and Cookies

These are always overstocked for the holidays and you can grab some great bargains right after Christmas. Why not get them while they are at their cheapest? Sure they might have red handles, but they will still work great.

πŸ›πŸŽ„7. Gift Sets

This is a huge category but a very viable savings opportunity. Gift sets for the holidays are always going to be cheaper right after the holiday and many of them will go half price or better. Grab them and toss out the packaging. The items inside are often packaged individually and it is like getting things for free. Why not grab them and break them down for savings and gifts through the year? From fragrances to razors to lotions you will find these gift sets for half price or more.

πŸ›πŸŽ„8. Containers of all types

If you are like me, you use containers all year long. From Tupperware to simple bins, they will be cheaper at the end of the season. Yes, some of them might have a picture of Jolly old Saint Nick on them but they can still be used. In fact, some nicer bins can be painted and have the holiday parts removed. Either way, you can get them for cheap!

πŸ›πŸŽ„9. Tape and Packing Supplies

This is one of my favorite things to stock up on simply because you will use them all year long. When you buy something at a super cheap price that you know you will use, it is a great feeling. That is what after Holiday shopping is all about!

πŸ›πŸŽ„10. Holiday Decorations

What list would be complete without the decorations? Wreaths, ornaments, Christmas cards, tinsel, ribbons, bows and countless other holiday items are slashed dramatically. Find the ones you truly love the most and get them while they cost hardly nothing. If you do it right, you will never have to pay full price again for Christmas.

πŸ›πŸŽ„Here are a few you may not think about either, but are certainly worth checking out!!


Just like the car lot, new furniture starts rolling in around February. The old furniture must go. This is when shoppers will see furniture for a lot less! πŸ›‹

πŸ›’Gym Memberships

Maybe it’s not about a resolution it’s about the cheap price! Many gyms will offer discounts in January. The YMCA frequently waives the joining fee, Planet Fitness runs specials like joining for a $1. Keep your eye on the local gym’s websites to see what special they are offering! πŸ’ͺ

πŸ›’Winter Apparel

Retailers most likely have extra inventory after the Holiday craze and will be discounting the leftovers! πŸ§₯πŸ‘–πŸ₯Ώ

So, what Holiday goodies will you be stalking from now til New Year’s?
