I am hitting the stores with my mom tomorrow to scout out some good deals. Here are some things to think about if you are shopping or making returns.
1. Best items to buy after Christmas:
Holiday baking candy/frosting/decorating sugars
2.Think about next year. If you set aside $40 a month starting in January you will have $480 in December for holiday shopping.
3. Teacher and hostess gifts. Look for things in sets that can be split up. Teacher appreciation is in the spring.
4. Seasonal items. Hats, coats, scarfs, gloves, buy clothes in bigger sizes that are in sale for kids next year.
5. Super sales. Stores are trying to make end of the year quotas and reduce merchandise. Look for clearance and bargain sales.
