Over the years I have learned a thing or two about holiday shopping. I hinted to it in my last post The O’Neil Home – Holiday Tour. Did you pick up on it? The lesson is:
The best time to get holidays deals is after the holidays.
You are probably saying, “How am I going to pull gift-giving off, if the holiday has already passed?”
Retailers are known to slash their prices after the holidays, to clear inventory for year-end. This means there are ways you can take advantage of these sales, to better position yourself for next year’s holiday.
Here are 6 things you can be buying now, to save yourself the trouble (and money) for next year.
The next tip is:
Pack these purchased items away with your holiday decorations.
This way you will find them when you began decorating after Thanksgiving. The best part is, most of the time you forget about these purchases, until you are reintroduced when you began decorating. I have purchased wrapping paper in bulk, saving over 60% off. That same wrapping paper has gotten me through numerous holidays. Not to mention stocking up on Crate and Barrel ornaments for our future tree, the year before we moved in together. Our tree is almost 75% of the initial price it would have cost us, to decorate with those ornaments purchased a few months before the holiday.
Enjoy the holiday, and then hop on those sales on Dec. 26th! There are some savings to be had!
See you on the other side in 2015! Happy New Year!
