Sorry no pretty clip art today but I am not at my computer. We are visiting my parents and got the joy of watching our girls open everyone’s presents. Their own weren’t enough so they took to helping everyone else! Plus we got to sing The Happy Birthday song to Baby Jesus … well, we had since he had a birthday cake and all! I love how little kids think and want to celebrate in the ways they know.
Since my tips have been few and far between lately, I wanted to share a simple after Christmas shopping tip.
TIP: Stock up on supplies you can use all year long while they are on clearance after the holiday. I only buy tissue paper after Christmas. I don’t pay full price for tissue paper … ever! Plain white tissue paper is always on sale after Christmas. Also look for rolls of solid color paper and stock up on those too! You can use that paper all year long.;) Other “regular” items that have holiday packaging will be also be on clearance … tape, crackers, cookie dough, etc., … take an extra look around the holiday aisles for these items!
Of course, you probably know to stock up for next Christmas so go buy your cards, your decorations, etc all while they are on sale! Remember to look for boxed set gifts that can be used all year long by you or to give as gifts when you pull them out of the holiday box and repackage them in a gift bag!!
As for toys, wait on those. They tend to go on sale the end of January or early February.;)
