Making the Most of After-Christmas Sales
While others are relaxing at home on the day after Christmas, frugal shoppers are hitting the department stores, grocery stores, and drug stores to take advantage of the after-Christmas sales. In the days leading up to New Years, retailers offer steep discounts on holiday items they need to clear out. You'll find Christmas decorations, gift wrapping supplies, and other holiday-related items at 50% to 90% off their regular price.
But savvy shoppers know that there are more than just holiday-related bargains to be had in the days following Christmas. It's also possible to snag great deals on everyday items you'll use throughout the year. Sometimes all that's needed is to look at clearance items in a different light.What You'll Find at After-Christmas Sales
Here are some ideas to help you make the most of the after-Christmas sales.Gift Wrapping Paper and Supplies
After Christmas is the best time to stock up on the wrapping paper, ribbon, bows, and tags you'll need for next Christmas. As you shop, look also for solid-color wrapping paper and coordinating ribbons and bows that can be used throughout the year. No one will know that the elegant gold paper you've used for an anniversary present was purchased for pennies. You can sometimes find scissors, markers, and transparent tape on clearance with the wrapping supplies or in the office supply aisle.
