Of course. We'll be scoping out the post-holiday bargains :reporter:

Mum and I are hitting Starbucks to pick up some cheap gifts to take back to Australia with us and we'll probably also head to some of the department stores to see what's happening.

I will. I've noticed that the two local Targets still have a lot of stuff in stock. It's only 30% off now, it'll be at least 50% off after Christmas. They have a CRAPLOAD of storage bins.

I don't know. I'd like to, but it's going to be like -20 or -25 degrees (wind chill) here on the 26th, so I might just stay in my nice heated house. --Mark--

Bath and Body is gonna have a sale soon. I left the card in the bag at work which I didn't need anyways. I bet the gift basket will be on sale, I hate it when that happens. You buy a gift (retail) for someone, then it'll be on sale days later.

I go shopping after Christmas and get wrapping paper and the like for next year--not the day after, though, because the clearances aren't good enough yet. Usually about a week after. If I get gift cards or money, I'm usually out there the day after though.

I got something in the mail about this....lots of deals but it said it actually started on Monday, so I don't know what they'll have on Sunday

I go a week later when the stuff gets 75% also, but the good stuff goes quick at 50% and I'd like a nice nativity scene, a 4.5 ft tree and some Christmas light swags so I'm going to try and get those on Sunday

I'm thinking of braving it on Sunday and look for some new decorations. Where are some of the good bargains? Any ads out as of yet?

i'd stock up on christmas supplies, but i don't even know where i'll be living next christmas, so i don't want to load up on a lot of things that'd be a pain to move.

GO BRUINS!

I'm looking for some nice stocking hangers. Target had nice ones for $9.99 retail but I would have needed 6 this year with the pet stockings, GF, mine, and my lil' bros. I hope to pick up a half dozen of those at Target tomorrow. Also, I want to get a Tupperware wrapping paper container. My wrapping paper from last year had the creases in it from being bent. It was ok for wrapping stocking stuffers. Any other good sales anyone knows of? My Chicago Tribune will be delivered at 5am with all the ads...... but I don't realllllllly want to go outside at 5am in 5 degree weather to get it. :D :holiday14

I hit Walmart today and got some wrapping paper for 1.50 a roll. I will probably pick up more later when it's cheaper but I figured I had better get some to be on the safe side. I also picked up some really nice glass canisters for 1.00 a piece I think I will make gifts for next year with them. Chocolate covered cherries where .48 a piece so I picked up some of those also.

I scored some fabulous gift packs from Starbucks at 50% off ($9.99 for about $30 worth of stuff) and some tasty Godiva chocolate gift box packs at 50% off.

We got a bunch of stuff but did the best at Burdines-Macy's...they had nice hand painted wine goblets, boxes of 4 for $5.00, got a bunch for those "little" presents that you need to get people where you want something nice, you don't really know the person and you don't want to spend alot!!

Well, I broke down and went out today after all. Good thing I did--there was hardly anything left! What did people do, buy up the store at 8 am? I was there at noon and the shelves were nearly empty! We only bought wrapping paper at Target but at Walmart we scored a lot...a nice 7.5 foot prelit tree in only 3 pieces (no branches to individually assemble) for $50 and a nativity scene for under $5, among other things. We'll have some nice decorations next year. And I wound up spending part of my Old Navy gift card on my son...sigh. They didn't have the jeans I wanted in my size, and I didn't like any of the tops they had, but they had some jeans cute jeans and a shirt I liked for the almost-5-year-old on sale so I got those. The remaining balance is going to be saved for those jeans, whenever they get them in stock again. And since he only got one outfit yesterday that he can wear (his other gifts are way off, size-wise, and bought at stores out of state. Ugh) he really did need me to get him something else. All in all a very decent day shopping.

Went to Wal-Mart and got 5 rolls of wrapping paper @ 1.47 each. Got some of the perfume sets for 50% off, but the best deal I got IMO is the Conair percussion massager for 6.88, a conair spa for the bathtub for 11.88 and a reversible sheepskin massage mat for 18.00. I can't wait to try the massage mat!!! :yelclap: :yelclap:

Well, I went and was glad I did! I even got the hubby to tag along to help me carry the goodies (what a guy!). I went to Sears and was eyeing this 6.5' foot pre-lit slim tree. Well, it was going to be 75% off. I wanted the color lit one and they were out. :( But, the girl at the counter said she would sell me the demo for that and an additional 10% off! woooohooo :yelclap: I got it for $26 Then, I bought two packages (2 in each box) of those 3 and 4 foot spiral trees for $7.50 per box. I used a $35 giftcard I had for most of that purchase. Think I paid like $12 total. I went over to another store (Gottschalks) and they were selling stuff at 60% off and that's where I scored oodles of ornaments for my new tree! :) Also, I bought these cute, ceramic tea light holders (snowmen,santa,mrs. claus,etc) for $1.60 each! I bought 15 of those! That covers my co-workers next year. :) Then, they cashier produced a 10% off coupon for everything. So, I walked outta there spending like $40. All in all, well worth the driving. Thank goodness hubby tagged along.
