Items To Buy After The Holidays

Black Friday may be the official start to the holiday shopping season, but the other bookend for a lot of items actually comes now, on this side of New Year’s Day. Here are a few items to buy after the holidays if you’re looking to save a buck.


Laptops, phones, and tablets may be discounted, but your biggest savings now may come with the purchase of a new camera. The prices on all of these electronic devices get slashed this time of year because retailers are making room for the new year’s releases.

Home Décor

Fewer people are buying Thanksgiving and Christmas décor right now, and retailers would rather not keep it as part of their inventory for another 9-10 months or so. Look for holiday trees, candles, linens, florals, and crafts now at a very discounted price. While you’re shopping keep an eye out for décor that is not holiday-specific. You can find patterns and colors that are appropriate all year.

Wrapping Paper

Just as certain household decorations are available cheap this time of year, so is Christmas wrapping paper. Why not stock up now so you’ll be ready for next year? It will save you both time and money.

Winter Clothing

You wouldn’t think winter clothing would be on sale already with so much cold weather still in front of us. However, jackets, coats, sweaters, leggings, scarves, and mittens are typically available at discounted prices this time of year.

Cosmetics And Skincare

Makeup is a popular gift for women at Christmas. That’s why afterward, they slash prices. In fact, mainstream brands, generic brands, and specialty brands all run sales after the holidays. If you like Sephora, Urban Decay, Avon, or Bath & Body Works, now’s a great time to check them out.

Christmas Cards

Shocker. Christmas cards are in low demand in January. The good thing is that means you can save as much as 80 percent. It’s the perfect time to buy yours now and mail them out in late November.
