Christmas Shopping – After Christmas!!!

Do any of you shop for Christmas stuff AFTER Christmas??

I actually did this year, not on purpose though.

I went to Wal-Mart with my Mom and came across some good sales, like Christmas cards for almost nothing… I figured Hey.. I’ll need some for sure next year.  Oh and then I noticed that all Christmas lights were half off… which turned out great because my Hubby and I have a big outdoor Christmas project we want to do next year (oh well this year I guess hehe we are now in 2012) and we need lots of lights.  So I picked those up too.

I went back a few days later because I needed odds and ends.. and noticed the After Christmas sale was now even better.. things were at 70% off!!!  Which AGAIN turned out great because I remembered that I had told my Hubby that next Christmas I wanted to change the whole theme of our tree… I picked up LOTS and I mean LOTS of Christmas tree decorations.. worth 60$ for $11!!  Yes that’s right.. my tree will have a COMPLETELY new look for 11$!!  SCORE!!!!   I’m going with Pink, Blue, Purple and Green colors… it’s going to be AWESOME!!!

Please tell me I’m not nuts.. and not alone to have taken advantage of these crazy sales??

    I fell into the sales by pure luck. However, I think next year I'll make sure to go but on purpose hehe. The trick is to got AFTER New Years… that's when the stuff is really on special :)
