I need more garland and a wreath.. not sure where I will go to buy it though. OUr Kohls was pretty picked over 3 days ago. I might head over to Menards or Pier one imports. Any stores you plan on hitting up. Do you have a favorite store to buy Holiday decorations?

We just decided half an hour ago not to go Boxing Day shopping tomorrow! Staying home and hanging out, drinking coffee and hopefully getting down to some crafting together!

I was tempted by the thought of stocking up on wrapping paper, bows, etc for next year, but then I realized that I didn't actually see anything in stores this year that I really loved.

I saw a pair of brown loafers at Sears the other day on sale for $20 only the store I was at didn't have them in my size. They found them at another store not too far from my house and hopefully I can run out tomorrow to pick them up. I bought the same pair in black and wore them today and I love them.

If I do go out for the shoes, then I will also stop at Bed Bath and Beyond and pick up the waffle maker I have been wanting.

I didn't buy any last year, so I really need to restock my almost depleted supply of wrapping paper, tissue, and a few gift bags.....

Then I want to shop for some clothes for me

Not a thing, I do not think I will hit a store until birthday shopping in April, LoL. I hit the stores pretty hard this year, I do not want to enter one for awhile.

I'd like to get to Kohls and buy another wrap shawl, bought a red one before Christmas and just loved it. There were some casual ones that would go well with jeans. Just the right amount of warmth for me.
Want to check out the sale at Yankee Candle and B&B, although I don't need anything more from either place.

I have to work tomorrow, but DD needs a new pair of shoes so we might go out for those after work.

It would be lovely if they were on sale.

DH headed out to pick up a new receiver, I'm considering heading out once he's home ... but that would mean getting out of my pyjamas and I'm not quite sure I'm ready for that after a busy couple of days

I really wanted to stock up on some basic silver Christmas ball ornaments & maybe a few fancy ones. I've not shopped for Christmas decorations for a few years now & I use to look forward to the after Christmas sales for that.

There is ice covering everything outside this morning, so I don't see myself getting out anytime soon!

Glad to see I wasn't the only one. I need some because we used most of what we had. But I wasn't excited over what was out there this year. I do need bows and bags though.

Pull-ups. ha ha. Not that they ever go on sale. We realized Christmas Eve we had none. So I'm heading out to buy some. And may pick up a few goodies along the way.

I need some new potholders and measuring cups, so I was going to hit Kohl's and/or Target to see what they might have on sale.

I *have* to go out to get dishwashing detergent -- we ran out on Xmas Eve!

I just got back from the Boxing Day sales with my DD. She got a bag she looked at before. Christmas , less than half price. She also picked up some leggings and a lovely bra for bargain prices.

My big steal was a pair of leather riding boots I bought in November, loved, but took back as I felt I couldn't justify the £100 price tag. I just bought them for £45! I am so delighted.

I had wanted to get a new artificial Christmas tree at the after Christmas sales. I picked up my current one at Sears several years ago for a killer deal. But there is a branch that no longer lights, and some of the arms are bent because a fat cat climbed on them. It still looks good unless you look really closely, but I figured I wouldn't mind a new one.

I won a $100 gift card at work and thought I could use that for a new tree and would hit the Boxing Day sales in the early a.m. today. The store I wanted to get one from had their trees at 50% off before Christmas, but I figured I would wait til they went down a bit more.

We were there on Christmas Eve and they had started their Boxing Day reductions already, and the trees were actually 75% off. We found a really nice one, full, white lights, larger/fuller than normal tips. So I bought it. And had money for some other things too.

There was nothing else I really wanted or needed, so I just lazed around this morning, and will go out soon to my sis's for Christmas with my side of the family.

Well, my out of the house shopping plans were squashed due to snow (people in VA get really scary on the roads when it snows, no matter how little there is). So, I'm shopping online this morning. So far I've ordered some ornaments from Hallmark that I've had my eye on since November.

I've never done the after Christmas sales - for all you who do - are they only for the day after or do the sales last for a few days after the holiday? I'm stuck working today but have tomorrow off.

I hate wearing my winter coat because it's so big & bulky. MIL got SIL a down puffer jacket that is super light-weight and NOT bulky, yet still very warm. I had no idea that such a thing existed. Now I'm off to find one for myself.

Bath and Body Works Semi Annual sale, definitely. I'd like to get some candles- although, last week when I went to exchange a candle they had NO stock after the flash sale. I really hope they have restocked for the semi annual sale.

I will probably check out the Victoria's Secret sale too for makeup and bath and body stuff.

DH wants to get some outside decorations but I never have any success finding decorations at the after Christmas sales. Everything seems to usually be pretty wiped out.

My husband asked me to be on the lookout for larger gift bags. He thinks he has to have a box for wrapping and he loved using what gift bags I had. When we were opening gifts he nudged me and said...make sure to get the big bags before people trash them.

I was planning to go anywhere - getting hammered with snow- but realized I needed laundry detergent so I waited until early evening hoping to avoid the crowds and picked some up at Target - in and out/ fast and easy.

I don't 'do' Boxing Day - the crowds make me snakey. Luckily, the sales last all week here so I'm heading to the mall before lunch and hoping the snow storm will keep shoppers away.

I don't like to shop in crowds, so I wasn't planning on going out.

But DS wanted to use his GCs at Best Buy and Game Stop, so I dropped him off and hit Target. It wasn't crowded at all at 3pm. I shopped for an hour in there, poking around. I bought a bunch of wrapping paper and bows that I liked, and a birthday present for my niece.

Surprisingly fun and relaxing.

I went out to Best Buy to get a case for my iPad Mini. Was not impressed with their choices, but bought one anyway. Brought it home and hate it because it doesn't bend backwards. So back it goes. I did better at the pet store... 2 for 1 litter, 2 for 1 cat beds and 4 for 5 buck cat treats.

This is the day I usually buy all of my wrapping paper for the next year. It's so much cheaper, and I can get better paper.

We picked up a good deal on an Actifry Plus with a Jamie Oliver/Tefal frypan. My mother liked the Actifry so much that she went and got one today. It took some talking at a different store to get the same price I got (after my store wouldn't go that low again 2 days after I got mine) but we talked them down. We saw the frypan for sale in another store and it was $199 by itself so we did pretty well. I also picked up some white serving plates that were on special and match a dinner set I have. We used another wedding gift card for that (and the actifry).

I braved the mall. A swimsuit shop had a sale so I took advantage. Usually those suites are never on sale.

I got a seafolly top for 40% off, it was regular $180 and I got three reasonably priced cover ups that were on a sale that made them an even better deal. Bring on the Maui sun! Can't wait!!

I didn't go out on Boxing Day, although DH and her BF did, and got some great deals. I am going today however, as my company all flew out on early morning flights this morning.

I'm looking for a jacket, some yoga pants and a new frying pan.
