Waiting to shop for things until after the holidays will save you money. But you’re going to have to shop smart and that implies having a solid approach towards shopping. At MommySavesBig, we want you to start 2021 with the spirit of saving more while shopping more.
Explore our tips on what to buy post-Christmas and the best deals being offered by your favorite brands.
What Should You Buy?
Shopping after Christmas might mean waiting longer for a specific item, but it will make the wait worth the money you save on that product. In the January inventory turnover, you can see a lot of deep discounts on big appliances, furniture, sports goods, and just about every other retail item that is changed. To make the most of post-holiday sales, you will need to prepare ahead. If you have a list of target items, timing big buys for after-Christmas sales will produce significant savings.
The following are five items that you should wait until after Christmas to purchase.
1. Gifts and Toys
Retailers are left with excess stocks of beauty products, toys, spa gift bags, and much more after Christmas is over. To make way for standard merchandise again, these items are quickly transferred to the clearance bin.
At 70% off or more, watch for toy clearances and then buy in bulk. These make your children, nephews, and nieces great birthday gifts. For unexpected occasions, you can pick up a supply of adult gifts too. A spa collection is a perfect gift to welcome new neighbors or just say thank you.
The price of decorations and other Christmas paraphernalia does not back down much. Within a few weeks after Christmas, Christmas trees, decorations, decor, wrapping paper, and more will all be 50 percent to 75 percent off. Buying ahead will save you a bundle for next year.
3. Winter Wear
Sweaters and other winter wear are priced at the top of the line when new collections arrive and barely work their way down as winter progresses. January and July are the two periods of the year when distributors hand over their products for the new season. That makes January a great time for you and your children to purchase next year’s winter gear.
Black Friday will have some wonderful offers on electronic gadgets, but after the New Year, you will find sales that are just as good or better. Every January, the International Consumer Electronics Show takes place and showcases new products and models. Retailers realize that these new models are on the way, so they want to unload the models from last year and free up shelf space.
Food is in demand year-round, but after the holidays, the type of food that’s in demand changes dramatically. A prime time to snap up some serious discounts in the supermarket aisles is after Christmas.
Baking materials, wine, cheese, and the products’ seasonal flavors are also on the way out. Grocers clear a lot of what is left from the holiday season in January to make room for the healthier foods that everyone seems to like.
