Do you have plans for any after Christmas deals?

Last year we bought Craftsman weed eaters toys for our son and hubby's Godson's summer birthdays. Hopefully they'll have some of their tool toys left over and decently cheap again this year. (I think they were like 60% off when I bought them)

I already started a little with the 50% off toys, lol. I probably will, but try not to get TOO much. I want to be able to stack the stuff in the corner of one closet.

Nothing out of the ordinary... just groceries and whatever deals I can't say no to.

No, we have enough stuff. Not only that, I will be in an fairly unfamilar area, with a limited space to carry stuff home with.

I'm actually going to the Twin Cities the day after Christmas (I have an appointment at the University of Minnesota with a new Rheumatologist ) and I'm hoping my trusty GPS will lead me to some good stores .... I'm going to need to replenish my wrapping paper after I wrap what I have here to wrap. I refuse to buy more now at full price when this time next week it'll be at least 50% off

Oh boy do I ... lol. After xmas is prime business supply buying time. As I do a TON of gift wrapping all year, I'm always on the look out for cheap wrapping materials and such, which will all be super cheap after xmas. I will buy them all. Muahaha.

Plus, DH doesn't get presents until after xmas when he gets home from Mississippi, so I always keep my eyes open for clearance goods for him. I love the clearance. I'm also hoping to keep an eye out for holiday themed paper goods as I hate paying full price for any of them ever.

I'll look for wrapping paper and such on clearance and if CVS wants to give me free stuff, I'll do that too!

Paige will be 2 in Jan so if there are good deals on toys I will get her some bday presents. I will also stock up on wrapping paper. I also want to look for Christmas decorations. Also since we leave for vacation on Dec 29th I want to try to find a few small quiet toys for both Paige and Alexis for the plane ride to WI. That way when they get bored they will have something new to play with.

I am going to look for a nice fake Christmas tree. I am not doing a real tree again. I am so over pine needles. Oh, and I will also look for a birhday gift for my best friend's little girl who has a Jan birthday.

I forgot that I also go to Hobby Lobby and stock up on tins at super low prices (usually I can get stuff at like 75% plus off). I'm not picky about the design on them and they usually have quite a bit of them left over. I use them the following year for cookies and such that we give away.
