After Christmas Sales
I was out doing a little last minute shopping today and all of a sudden it hit me after Christmas sales!!!! After Christmas sales are good for more than just buying holiday decor at great prices. They are great for all kinds of items. A lot of merchandise is brought in as seasonal but really isn't "Christmassy" it is just tagged as seasonal and put in with the after Christmas sale merchandise. This urn is a great example of after the holidays sale, Retail $59.95, Wholesale $35.00 after Holiday sale $17.98 PRICELESS
After Christmas sales are great for....
buying solid color wrapping paper and bags to use all year long
buying nice tablecloths and napkins to match that don't have a Christmas design on them
buying vases and urns for floral arrangements or display (Michaels already has some gold and silver ones that are 70% off)
buying decor items that are non-seasonal but that stores tag as seasonal
buying red bags or ribbon for valentines day gifts or goody bags
buying candles and candle holders for all year long
Best wishes and good luck finding those after Christmas bargains that you will be able to use all year long. Let me know how it goes!
