    After Christmas Clearance Plans!!

    So I always make a point to hit up stores for some clearance goodies. I like to get some candies, gift bags and wrap, and some decor like lights and such.
    I will be going to some drug stores tomorrow then places like Big Lots and Target on Wednesday. Hoping to find some nice lighting for next year!!

    not gonna swear to it, but I have seen very....VERY similar ornaments in Tenn. at the Incredible Christmas Place. I will be on the lookout at local Hallmark stores, Don

    True, so very true. I have talked to a few very unhappy employees in reqards to their pay scale.

    That is a great SCORE!!! I remember years ago, that we just had a Ernst Home Center open up a few months before Christmas. I had went in to see what they had for Christmas decor, and they were loaded up with stuff! Four long isles of nothing but Christmas! Anyway, I thought that I will wait till after Christmas to see what they might have left over.

    So Christmas came and went, and I was in the store the day after. I couldn't believe it, none of the isles had been touched. I asked a clerk if there was anything wrong with the product and why so much was left. They said that no one showed up to buy from them this year. WOW! I said, well I'm going to buy something right now. Everything was 50% to 75% off retail, so I went to town! I, like you......saved a bunch! Funny thing was in just a year, they had closed down all stores here in Oregon.

    So great job on still finding stuff on sale, and nice haul!

I cant really knock them, if I worked there I would scoop up christmas sale items too.......just not to sell, but to feed my own habit lol
    Ya know I have a friend... Well, had a friend... And he used to do this. He worked at a department store and he was able to get anything he wanted and hide it then get the after Christmas sale PLUS his 15% discount.

    He never turned a profit but still, I never thought that was fair.

    And yeah like Don said, made a very good point... Store employees are milking them! I remember when I worked at a store in my teens and younger 20's... I would put stuff aside until it went on clearance and then buy it. We were allowed to get away with this so long as the district manager didn't know.

    Oh wow, I had not even thought of that!!! I am with you though, I would probably do the same. I see people who do that on eBay with clearance drug store beauty items all the time.
