I love post-Christmas deal shopping. Christmas clearance racks can be a gold mine for items you use routinely throughout the year. With the big move only a few weeks away, I'm laying off stocking up this year, but if you're out making returns or picking up a few gifts Santa forgot to bring for you, take a quick swing through the Christmas aisle for these sweet deals:
1. Gift wrap and ribbon
Gift wrap is expensive! But, you can get gift wrap and ribbons/bows for 50-75 percent off after Christmas, and there are several options that people will never associate with Christmas. If you don't believe me, check out the photo below - all three roles for 50 percent off after Christmas.
Do you really think Christmas comes to mind when you use silver wrapping paper for a wedding gift in June?
2. Storage containers
A couple of years ago I made a haul on clear, plastic storage containers that were all 65 percent off simply because they had red or green lids.
3. Window clings
Window clings can be an inexpensive way to add a little Christmas touch to everyday items when you decorate next year. I actually got this idea from my mom, who uses window clings to decorate containers in her kitchen. As a bonus, storing window clings is much easier than shorting a bunch of Christmas-themed containers that you only use one month out of the year.
