After-Christmas Deals

Another Christmas has come and gone in the blink of an eye. Now it’s time for cleaning, detoxing your diet, and exchanging those too-big sweaters you received as gifts. It’s also time for snatching up some incredible post-Christmas deals. Here’s what you can find at severely discounted prices in the following days.


Christmas-themed food and candy

Do red and green Christmas-themed M&Ms taste different than regular M&Ms? I don’t think so. Christmas and holiday themed food and candy will be marked down like crazy. Check WalMart’s holiday section, as well as places like RiteAid and WalGreens for their discounted holiday candy and food items.

Out-of-box deals

Returns are inevitable in the days after Christmas, but that’s good news for bargain hunters. When an opened item is returned to a store, it’s checked to make sure it still works, but it can’t be sold as a new item. Instead, retailers will sell these like new items at a discounted price. These are often called warehouse or open-box deals. Amazon has a great selection of warehouse deals after Christmas and all year long.

Decorations and gift wrap

Shiny wrapping paper covered with snowflakes and candy canes will be discounted in the days after Christmas, along with artificial trees, garland, lights and ornaments. Stock up for next year and save some serious cash.

Baking supplies

With the season of sugar cookies coming to a close, you can score great deals on baking supplies. Keep an eye out for Christmas themed frosting, cake mixes, sprinkles and cupcake liners.
