With six neices and nephews (and another on the way!), I can’t afford to buy all my Christmas gifts in November and December! I prefer to start Christmas shopping in January! This January I found matching pajamas for all the kids at Children’s Place for like $4 each. I just bought them a size up and put them in my tote labeled “Gifts”. As I’ve found good deals, I’ve just added a toy and a book for each one!
I’ve also bought most of our gifts for Lance’s family throughout the year. Clearance shopping is a great way to save money! Why buy something at full price in December, that you can get in January for 75% off? I just have to buy one more thing and then all of my Christmas shopping is done for this year!
I also buy all of our clothes this way. All the fall stuff is starting to go on clearance right now and soon the winter stuff will follow. I buy things for next year that need replacing in our wardrobe, so that the next time that season rolls around, we’ll be all set!
