Today is Christmas and you know what that means…tomorrow the clearance markdowns begin!! Instead of walking past the isles of wrapping paper, shirt boxes, etc., go over and look. You will be surprised how much you will save if you go ahead and purchase for next year. I know Hobby Lobby had all Christmas items marked down 50% on Christmas Eve. You can either play the waiting game and wait until it is 75% off or go ahead and pick through and find designs, styles, colors, etc. that you like.
Here’s some advice: if you find red, green, gold, or any plain colored gift bag, buy it. You could use that for any occasion during the year. When you are shopping clearance, think of all the uses you can get throughout the year, not just Christmas. For instance, if you see white tissue paper on clearance, buy it. You can use that all year round.
