5 Best Things To Buy After Boxing Day

Smart shoppers know that the beginning of the year is the best time to pick up bargains. Typically many stores are over stocked, people have spent most of their money before Christmas, people on holidays are not buying the usual things, and stores are empty.

What to Buy In January

Here is a list of items of bargains to shop around for:

1. Anything on eBay

Most people are tired of shopping, and many people don’t have as much money left to spend, so if there is something that you have been wanting to get on the secondary market, there’s a good chance that you can get it at a better price right after Christmas than at many other times of the year. There are just fewer people bidding and those who are, have less money. It’s worth checking out and hopefully you can score a deal on the item you want for a price that you thought you would never be able to get.

2. Gift Sets

Whether it’s food or other items, holiday gift sets can be an extra great bargain because all the items have usually already been discounted to some degree to make it into a set. When their price gets lowered even more after Xmas day, you can score even more savings.

3. Toys & Small Gifts

If you will need to get gifts for nephews, nieces, your children’s friends’ birthdays, etc., this can be a great time to stock up on them. Toy retailers will be trying to reduce their current stock, and you should be able to pick up some quality gifts for much less than if you ended up buying the same or similar gift right before the event.

4. Christmas Stuff

If you have the room to store it, this is a great time to stock up on anything  you noticed you didn’t have or that needs replacing with a Christmas theme: wrapping paper, bows, ribbons, gift bags, stockings, cards, holiday decor, lights, etc. If you are in the market for a faux Christmas tree, this is the time to get it. If you need more ornaments, or you buy yearly ornaments, stock up. You should be able to purchase all this stuff at 50%+ off its regular retail price.

5. Calendars

Good quality calenders are overpriced for gift shopping. You are likely to find that the same items are 50% off immediately in the new year. They must be sold quickly or the surplus stock is wasted. Return the shopping malls to find the calenders by the end of January.
