Christmas or holiday greeting cards are other great items to buy during after holiday sales. But, like wrapping paper, as the sales start, inventory shrinks quickly.
2. Gift sets
Gift sets are another item that are on sale right after the holidays. This includes anything from lotion and toiletries to gift sets for pets. You could stock up on these for many events throughout the year, so long as they are not holiday themed: weddings, birthdays, graduations, or baby showers. But, for the holiday themed sets, simply keep them in a place where you won’t forget about them next year.
3. Wrapping paper
Wrapping paper is a great item to buy after the holidays. Just don’t wait too long because inventory begins to dwindle while prices keep dropping. If you want to get the best price on wrapping, buy now!
4. Holiday decor and candles
Holiday decor can be found for a great deal after December 25th. If you’ve been wanting to get a new Christmas tree or change up your holiday theme, now is the time. Inventory won’t last for long though. Places like Walmart, Michaels, Target, Home Depot and Lowe’s are good places to look for after-holiday deals.
5. Toys and games
Children’s Toys and games are a great deal at the end of the year as stores try to move out holiday merchandise.
Auto dealers tend to offer their best prices on new vehicles toward the end of the year to make room for next year’s inventory. The dealers may also offer special incentives to get people in the door.
Cold weather clothing is another great deal after the holidays, with retailers lowering prices to get rid of excess inventory. Be on the lookout for deals on clothes for men, women and children at J.C. Penney, Nordstrom Rack and other large retail stores.
