Well let me start off by saying if you haven’t read my blog post on my TOP THREE STORES to shop at day after christmas go HERE to read that first and then come here and read what I suggest buying the day after Christmas. These items listed are just what I suggest purchasing the day after christmas. Everything else, I suggest waiting for it to drop to 90% off especially if you have more than 2-3 Target stores around you your willing to hit up you’ll find everything you want once it goest to 90% off if you get there right when they open.
Gift Sets: My husband is an OLD SPICE only kinda guy. That stuff ain’t cheap compared to other brands so this is when I combine coupons with the 50% on gift sets on Old Spice Gift Sets, and shavings sets for me. I typically get these gifts sets for anywhere between $1-$3 each. Well worth it considering everything in it is well over $10. (Store: Walmart)
Chapstick: Target has these as stocking stuffers. This is when you really need to keep your eyes out on there products. They ALWAYS have our favorite EOS chapstick gift sets. (Store: Target)
- Where I live the ziploc bags & glad wrap and foil go first. So I am literally at the store the moment they open for this reason. Within 5 minutes they’re all in peoples carts.
Ziploc Bags & Ziploc Containers: This is when I stock up for the entire year on ziploc bags. Well technically the up & up brand AND ziploc. Again I always have coupons on hand for ziploc bags and containers that I combine with the 50% off and we are good for the entire year. (Store: Target)
Glad wrap & Foil: This is another item I stock up on every year. Last year I scored so many I still don’t need to stock up on it this year. (YAY ME!) Look for the glad wrap and foil with seasonal designs on it. These will be in the christmas section AND with the regular glad wrap and foil. (Store: Target)
Air Freshners & Candles: I typically always get these for FREE. How? Coupons 🙂 Combine coupons you have with the seasonal air freshener and candles that are 50% off and you have yourself candles and air freshness for life. (Tip: I actually use the frebreeze air freshness in my car. They work amazing!) (Store: Walmart & Target)
Napkins: Just look for the paper napkins with holiday prints hidden away in the regular aisles with paper goods! We always stock up on 2-4 of these for the entire year.
CHRISTMAS DECOR: (STORE: TARGET & DOLLAR TREE)
This should kind of be a no brainer so I won’t go into to many details on this one. I typically go for the wrapping paper first because its what everyone else goes for first as well. Other things I typically go for are: Placemats, Mini Christmas Trees, Christmas Lights (if we need more), garland (I always get this at DT because hello $0.50c!!! Christmas Decor is actually the thing I get the least amount of things from if any.
PARTY GOODS: (STORE: TARGET & DOLLAR TREE)
I will admit though I try to wait till 90% off at Target for these if possible then I buy them all. I mean who wouldn’t when they are $0.10-$0.30 each
Plastic Tablecloths: Who doesn’t need plastic tablecloths for parties and get togethers? They are typically always just one color so I grab a couple for year-round crafting parties, and parties we throw.
Paper Napkins & Cutlery: We use these paper napkins for parties, christmas parties, and any other parties we may have and plastic cutlery is perfect again for parties (less dish washing for you 😉 and picnics.
Paper Plates/Cups/Bowls: My stash of paper plates/cups/bowls is 100% from holiday clearance.
