Now is most likely the best time for finding great deals on holiday items like Christmas tree ornaments and decorations. While I’m inclined to say that holiday tchotchkes are generally overpriced to begin with, I’ve spotted discounts up to 75% off of the regular price over the past few days. Most people, particularly those who plan and prepare for the holidays, are just happy the year has ended. They’re not thinking about preparing for next Christmas or Hanukkah.
Meanwhile, the stores need to unload their unsold holiday inventory. It’s time to start making room for Valentine’s Day junk. Use this knowledge to take advantage of the strong supply to demand ratio. If you have the storage space and can’t reuse what you already have, consider buying what you’ll need next December now at a deep discount.
