Shopping After Holidays: Top 5 Tips for Great Deals

I thought I would give you all some tricks to after the Holidays shopping. As you know, Easter was today, and tomorrow several stores will put items at 50% off tomorrow.

Target, Walgreens, and CVS are good ones that most of the time go 50% off the day after the Holidays.

Here is my top things to look for when shopping.

1. Candy, Candy, Candy.. Use coupons to make these even cheaper.

2. Items like Glad, ziplock, that have the Holiday designs.

3.  Toys, yes.. there are toys that go 50% off. Like themed toys that were holiday specific, I have seen legos, (small packs) pototoe head, hand held games and more.

4.  Food items, with holiday packaging. Like cookies, chips, and candy sometimes found in odd places through out the store, price check to see if these are marked down.

5.  Paper goods, like napkins, paper towels, and paper plates!

Coupons can be matched for even deeper discounts. If you wait for even a few more days after the holidays, the price will drop 75%, and then eventually 90%.
