Now that Christmas has come and gone, it is time to hit the end of year sales and start shopping for next Christmas! I know that may seem a little crazy, but this time of year is when you are able to grab some pretty hot deals! Especially Christmas decorations, winter attire and toys! Stores are now making way for items such as weight loss products, exercise equipment and Valentine’s Day items- so items left over from the holiday shopping season are making their way out the door at rock bottom prices!
Now yes you just spent the last 6 -8 weeks hitting the stores looking for those must have toys for your family, so shopping now for more toys may seem like a little overkill. But this is the time to grab some hot deals and save you big time on your Christmas budget for next year! This will also save you some time and your sanity by staying home during these crazy shopping days leading up to Christmas next year. I keep a notebook in my purse and write down every gift I purchase for the next year. This way I know what I already bought and who for! I then hide these gifts in totes in our attic so that the kiddos can’t find them. This is great, because I always have great gifts on hand and at a great price! Once November hits, I am left only having to buy a few gifts for friends and family!
