Post-Holiday shopping

Christmas will be here before you know it. It has been a tradition where people shop for holiday gifts after Thanksgiving Day. However, it is also great to shop after Christmas. Why? Because retailers usually unload excess inventory from 2010, the best deals are often found after Christmas and New Year. There are things that you may want to put on your after-Christmas shopping list. Here they are:

  • Electronics – with no doubt, electronic items will be on sale. Just like last year, Walmart offered shoppers a $50 gift card when they bought Microsoft Xbox 360 until January 1st.
  • Winter Clothes and Accessories – hats, beanies, scarves, gloves, winter coats and socks will be on sale.
  • Ingredients – supermarkets load up on baking supplies to meet consumers’ demands. So, after holidays, it is a great time to stock up on spices, flour, sugar, chocolates, etc.
  • Refurbished goods – refurbished items are usually 10 – 20% discount.
  • Wrapping paper and ornaments – expect 50-90% discounts on wrapping papers and holiday cards
  • Candies – usually candies are on great sale up 75% off
  • You will surely get big savings on your post-holiday shopping!
