We're usually getting Christmas decorations and supplies...wrapping paper, tags, bows, etc...the morning after Christmas. I could never pay full price for wrapping paper. I'm usually at Target, Walmart, etc first thing .

I'm going to Target on Saturday morning. Looking for wrapping paper and small toys, as well as candy for my hubbie's office candy jar. Maybe paper goods and snacks for my kid's school. Who knows what I'll end up buying!

I stumbled into JCPenney's last year and got some great Disney holiday decor.

We live about 30 minutes from the Yankee Candle flagship store in MA. I call it the Disney World of candle stores - if you're ever in the area, you really must go there - it's huge!

Anyway, my best friend and I arrive 15 minutes before opening on Dec. 26. They have amazing prices on lots of candle and holiday items. The best stuff goes quickly. It's great to have these on hand during the year if you need a gift and most things I gave this Christmas from last year's sale (great for school gifts, Yankee Swap at work, etc.). Time to restock! Some people have 2 shopping carts full of stuff!

Then we go out for an early lunch and head home. We also buy things to put in a raffle basket - we each pay $25 and the basket ends up at over $100 value.

My daughter's birthday is Dec 31 and we are having a blow out "Willy Wonka" birthday party so I am looking for great deals on Christmas candy to decorate the chocolate factory with!

We ahven't done this in years but we use to head to Target to get clearance gift wrap and decorations. We'd also hit Old Navy and JCP to see what's there. Some years we made out like bandits!

I will be working the day after Christmas. I work at a Gift store that sells Hallmark items, not much left this year so hopefully the mad rush doesn't last long.

DH is looking for all the stuff to make the yard look even brighter than it is now.

Anyone know if Target is doing 50% off Dec. 26? I was disappointed in their 30% off after Halloween!
