Taking Advantage of After Christmas Clearance Sales

We just cleaned up at the After-Christmas sale at a local drugstore chain (Longs Drugs). They had everything marked down for 10 cents each! We stocked up on enough tissue paper, holiday gift bags, and rolls of wrapping paper to last us for years for only $5. All the holiday candy was marked down really low too, but we skipped that as we already gained enough weight the last few weeks. And to think, we only went there to buy some last-minute garlic salt for a potluck dish we were making.

I’ve seen 75% off at other drugstores and Wal-marts, so it’s worth a look if you’re there.

  1. what chain?

  2. Longs Drugstores.

  3. Wow! That’s a hell of a lot better than Target’s 50% off sale. I’ll have to stop by Long’s on the way home from work. Thanks for the tip!

  4. 75% off at Fred Meyer too 🙂

    I love the 75% off sales. Even bath and body gift sets are discounted so I stock up and give them away as birthday gifts or other events.

  6. Darn–my Long’s only had things for 75% off, not 10 cents, and more importantly, they only had ugly wrapping paper left (mostly Barbie and Cars themed). I did get some stuff I liked at Target for 50% off, though.

    As SFmoneymusings said, yup–this is the best time of year to stock up on stuff from Bath and Body Works! Their stuff is so cheap in January that I don’t even bother to buy it the rest of the year unless I have an incredible coupon.

  7. Bummer. Yeah we went to another Longs today and they didn’t have anything left. Ours was 10 for $1 marked down from 75% off, I guess they didn’t need to slash that far at some places.

  8. If you wait until all of the good stuff is purchased after the holidays at Target, you can actually buy the crap for 90% off! I got a hideous green t-shirt with a recycle sign that says “Re-gift Responsibly” for 99 cents. On the plus side, I found a huge pack of beautiful Christmas cards hidden behind some milk (yeah, I have no idea) and that was also 90% off which ran me $1.20. Score one for the team that doesn’t get out there to find the good stuff in time!!!
