I really cant wait until the day after Christmas to go out shopping! Everyone usually does the 50% off right away. This is one of the times I will hit up walmart for clearance!! Then prolly go to Target, then Kohl's. Yeay! Stock up for next year! The next best thing besides BF!!! :g_laughin:multi::yup:

I can't wait either! I told DH that we were going to the super walmart the day after Christmas (it's abotu 45 minutes away). My aunt sent us a walmart gift card, and I'm planning on putting a dent into next year's gifts!

I stand in line at my Walmart every year. By the time they open, there is roughly 50++ people. After Walmart, I head to Target. Can't wait

Target goes 50% the day after and 75% 4 days after which would be Saturday!!! 90% on New Years Day. But, by then, nothing good left. Merry Christmas to All!!!!!!!!

Wal-mart's & Sam's Club's After-Christmas sale are always good for gift sets.

A few things to watch out for from a former Target employee. Here's a brief list of things that aren't necessarily Christmasy but are marked down anyway: paper towel plastic wrap ziploc/glad storage containers candles, room sprays, decospheres, etc. soap candy (you'll be surprised what you can find mixed in with the regular candy.. the Christmas candy has snowflakes on the bags) perfume/cologne sets (last year, i found a ton of perfume/cologne sets mixed in with the regular perfumes/colognes) toys (there's always christmas toys that will be found in the toy department) clothing boxed gifts (these will be in red boxes) side cap things (side caps are displays located in the actual aisle... sometimes they forget to move them to the clearance section) Be sure to scan anything that interests you because you may be surprised at what you find.

I always stock up on birthday presents for the year (parties my daughter will be invited too). She averages 4-5 a year so it helps getting 50% off. I always buy the girl giftsets and makeup purses

I am going out to do Target for the "must haves" and the paper towels and ziplocs and stuff like that. I actually have to get wrapping paper after Christmas for next year. I didn't have to buy any for the past 3 years and finally my supply is dwindling down. I will hold out for 75% on Saturday for that. There is usually a TON of wrapping paper left at Target anyway. I will then, probably hit Walmart and Kohls. If I am brave enough, I might go to the mall too, and look for some clothes with my gift cards I was holding since my birthday in November. Also have to get a few more gifts for our family get together next weekend. My neice loves Williams Sonoma so I'll go there and get some of the ornaments at 50% off.

Most Hallmark stores go 50% off after Xmas but if you're going 1st thing in the AM be ready to rumble! The mob is a bit on the crazy side for the ornaments. There's one near me that does only 40% but they are the exception.

This is the first year in a long time I have to work the day after--- so I'm not sure I'll be shopping at all that day. Though we did Christmas w/ my family yesterday and ds already has $150.00 in gift cards and 2 more families to go (my husband's and his own dad's family) so I'm sure he'll be itching to go out when I get home from work to shop.

Thank you! I'll be at Hallmark when they open, the one near me still has ton's of Christmas stuff including the ornaments.

I didn't even think about Walgreens. I will check there for paper too!

Thank you! Happy Holidays!

I'm hoping for good deals on Laptops again like on BF I missed out.


That's not typically something that goes on sale. Usually, its just Christmas clearance.
