Finding the best deals during the holiday season is like finding a diamond in a coalmine. They are rare to find, but so precious when in your possession! With after-Christmas sales, the savings and range of items on deep discount are a much bigger deal, since retailers want to get rid of additional Christmas inventory before the year’s end.

The Best After Christmas Buys to Get

You could end up saving up to 85% on after-Christmas merchandise! If you aren’t able to find your item during black Friday, don’t get your panties in a bunch, simply hold off until after the chaos of holiday shopping and find your item there for an even better price. Explore these best after Christmas buys that will have you and your loved ones smiling ear to ear. 

Clothing

Clothes and shoes alike are always going on sale! There is something about this particular after-Christmas buy that makes it so much sweeter to splurge. As the cold weather is getting ready to say farewell so is its garments. Stores are ready to stock shelves with spring trends. Bulky items like jackets need to go!

Cooler weather clothing is going to be a great deal after Christmas, with retailers slashing prices to get rid of excess inventory. Be on the lookout for deals online and in stores on clothes for men, women and kids at JCPenney, Nordstrom Rack and other big retail stores. There will be something for the entire family, so keep your eyes peeled and your savings in order. Jackets are a popular holiday gift for yourself or someone else.

There will be numerous coats and sweaters on the shelves that may have been returned for whatever reason. Make sure you inspect the items thoroughly before buying because let’s be real - how many times have we purchased something and noticed the previous consumer had left makeup on the item?!

If you do find yourself in a predicament like that, remember it never hurts to ask for a discount especially if you find a flaw like a broken zipper or missing button. The item is already on sale, what’s another few percentage points?

Smart Spending Guide
Cars

If you are looking to get a new whip but wanting something for your buck, I urge you to do two things. Save your funds prior to splurging on such a big purchase and finding yourself in debt. And secondly, do your research on the type of vehicle you want. Car dealers tend to offer their best prices on new cars toward the end of the year and after the Christmas holiday to make room for next year’s inventory.

In many cases, auto dealers may also offer special incentives to get you in the door!  To stay within your budget, you may also want to buy used to save even more money. Studies have shown that when you purchase a two-year-old used car, you are more than likely giving yourself the most value for your money.

It is also important to keep in mind that the type of vehicle you want to purchase plays a major factor in pricing and sales as well. Do your research on the vehicle you want, then approach the dealer after Christmas to get some of the best prices on that car before the new year inventory starts.

Gift Sets

You can never go wrong with gift sets, especially if they are discounted at an even better price. You could stock up on these for many events throughout the year, and not just give them as holiday presents. Gift sets include anything from lotion, perfumes, and toiletries to pet supplies and more.

Gift sets are the best! After Christmas items such as gift sets are usually on sale to make room for the new items the department store wants to sell at the new year. Gift sets, especially after Christmas are great items to stock up on for future events. The prices are so good after Christmas, you’ll feel so good about your budget!
