It’s long been one of my best money-saving mantras that the best time to buy new decorations for a holiday is the week after it passes the year before. For instance, today is the perfect time to start shopping for new Christmas decorations (and gifts!) for next year.
Here are a couple examples of the great deals you can get if you hurry:
Need new ornaments for the tree? Fitz and Floyd is a great place to go. This adorable glass Rocking Horse Ornament usually retails for a cool $38.00, but right now it can be yours for just $9.95.
Or how about a sign of the season?
The sign says ‘NOEL’ in letters made of recycled materials. It marks you as both festive and thoughtful. You can find it at Viva Terra for just $34.00, which is half off the original price of $69.00!
These generous 16oz mugs are designed by Norwegian artist Svein Solem and illustrate the efforts of an elf to make a snowman. Once upon a time the set of four would have cost you $29.95, which is a great price. Right now, though, you can get the amazing deal of four mugs for just $14.99!
Speaking of whimsy, how about a gingerbread house as an advent calendar?
Imagine the excitement little ones will experience next year counting down the days to Santa’s arrival by opening the correct drawer for the day and finding the treats hidden inside. Or, if you have your own personal Santa, he might leave some very interesting trinkets for you in those drawers. Just a thought.
The price is certainly right! Sur La Table originally carried it for $100.00, but right now you can get it for a deep discount at $49.99. Half off? Say, that proves you’ve been nice!
