Every year I plan on making the most of the January sales by stocking up with wrapping paper, cards and even gifts. Like you said it saves you a bundle as well as gives you a head start!
However I never seem to be organised enough to do it
Last Januaury I managed to buy a few decoations very cheap but that was it! I guess I kind of like doing it in the season too for example I always look forward to writting out my cards while listening to christmas carols, sipping a mulled wine with all my decorations and lights up.
