So with that in mind I hit up Target's great Christmas clearance this week! 75% off!!! I picked up enough little toys and games to fill my kids' stockings for next year (of course I'll throw a few pieces of candy in but I didn't get those yet). So this year I decided that I would stuff their stockings and THEN put them away! This works for us because we don't really have anywhere to display them so I don't take them out until Christmas Eve. Last year, I did the same and divided them up into Target bags for each boy that I put in their Christmas totes.
Yes - I have 2 Rubbermaid containers - 1 for each child - that I start filling for next Christmas as soon as I can. This keeps me from having to buy it all at once. Of course, my kids are still young so that is easier. Once they are teenagers (or pre-teens) who want certain things that come out just in time for Christmas that won't work as well.
Here are some of the finds I've seen this week:
Bed Bath & Beyond
Comforter sets as low as $12.50 on clearance! I picked up 2 of these in twin for our new bunk beds:
They also had bamboo sheet sets (twin) for $6.24!!! So I picked up 2 for use with the bunk beds as well!
Yankee Candle Holiday scents are on clearance and they also have Holiday Gift Sets for $10 (marked down from $20) that I picke dup for Justin's teachers for next year. It's 2 medium sized jar candles in Christmas scents!
Keurig Holiday Collection K Cups on clearance from $26.99 to $19.99 - still not a great price but pretty good - and paired with a 20% coupon it goes down to $15.99!
