I always get a rush when I see the after Christmas sales at my favorite stores. Partly because I exercised great restraint not buying a few things during the height of the retail holiday sales period. And partly because I just love saving money! Now I was pretty happy to see 50% off signs in the Christmas aisles at Menards, however I knew they must be marking them down again. I mean, come on. I am not an amateur shopper here. I asked one of the sales clerks if he knew when another mark-down would occur. He said that because the sign didn’t have a date range at the bottom, he thought that was as low as they were going to go. Bummer! I then had to pick and choose the items I really wanted in order to stay within my budget.
Well, as I waited in line, the cashier was placing items in a paper bag that caught my eye:
Oh, happy day! I kindly asked the cashier for a bag and then got out of line, making a beeline for the Christmas aisles. I could now get an EXTRA 15% off the already clearance price of 50%. Score! In addition to the items below, I bought a few boring necessities like socks to fill up the bag. Yes, I buy socks at Menards. Don’t judge me.
Don’t forget to hit the after holiday sales to fill your gift boxes for next year. Your budget will thank you later.
