****Congrats to our winners!
Comment #11 90% off Christmas items Submitted by K on December 22, 2009 -
I wait it out....and then tend to stumble on the 90% off stuff. My husband needled me to buy more wrapping paper last year....we now have enough for the next 3 decades! UGH! This year however, I must admit, I will be on the lookout for one of those cheesy Santa hats....and possibly an antler headband. LOL. I might even add bells! LOL!!!
Do you shop the after-holiday sales? You might want to consider it, since retailers like Target have a rather aggressive markdown schedule (and who couldn't use 90% off wrapping paper for next year?) One of my most thrifty post-season sale purchases involves the annual holiday Christmas ornaments and the snow globes -- I would never pay $30 for a musical snowglobe commemorating 2009, but $5, I can swing.
What are you best after-holiday purchase stories? Do you love shopping after the season? When do you head out? If you don't, why not?
Share your thoughts here in our comment thread or on Twitter, and you'll be entered to win one of two $10 Amazon giveaways. It's just enough to snag some of those post-holiday markdown deals. Dozens of readers have already won. You could be next!
