Stocking up for next Christmas

Right after Christmas is a great time to save money on next Christmas. I already have all my cards, gift wrap and ribbons & bows for next year. It cost me a fraction of the price it would cost if I had waited until next season to get it.
So as much as some do not like the after Christmas sales, they are so worth going to.
Plus, knowing you already have all your cards gives you the opportunity to fill them all out while sitting on the beach this summer!

I'm all stocked up with wrapping paper, christmas cards, gift bags, and name tags for a few years. I never pay full price for those things.

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.

I always stock up on name labels, gift wrap, and bows after Christmas. 50 to 75% off on those items definately addes up. Last year I bought a few boxes of ornaments after Christmas as well and got them for $1.00 a box. Not too shabby!
