Do you ever like to shop for all the holiday/seasonal decorations and stuff after the holiday/season is over? I absolutely love to! I especially love buying the candy for myself the day after, lol! Just today (the day after Valentine's day) I went to the grocery store to see what they had left. The bulk Valentine chocolates that were originally priced $2.98 per pound were 98 cents per pound, and those packages of super soft, frosted sugar cookies you can find at the bakery were 99 cents each! There were also lots of heart shaped paper plates and Valentine's day napkins on sale for 75% off. ^-^

I usually like to do that but I can't leave my house, there is too much snow and they're not even plowing the roads, let alone salting them. It's still coming down, too. I really like shopping after the holidays because I pick up what I need for the following year.

Well, hopefully no one is able to get out- so by the time you can, there is still a lot of stuff left to shop for, lol! w

olisaur - its my favorite time and like you its all about the candy. The best is after easter .. tootsie rolls puts out a bag of only vanilla tootsie rolls. .and they are my absolute favorite! Also at that time. . life savers makes a bag of banana . .so I am the first one at Target the day after Easter! And to add to the bonus they are less then half the price! I also find the best decorations for my Halloween collection after the holiday. . Big thumbs up on this topic.. . I love a good sale!!!

I love Halloween decorations, too! ^o^ I love using them even when its no where near Halloween time, lol. I like Easter candy, too. I think it and Valentine's Day candy are the cutest candy of all, lol.

i love to go shopping after holidays and Christmas and halloween are my two favourite times to go shopping after. i love to get Christmas stuff on sale (which i quite often use for gifts for next year) and Halloween candy (which i put in the freezer). you can save so much money if you go after the fact!

Those where great buys. I like to shop for sales. I do not get to much after holidays. I really have to shop for buys all the time. I am on a limited income. When I have the money I buy candy on sale, I also look for other sales. Happy posting.

For various reasons, I don't usually celebrate Christmas, Valentine's Day, or Easter- but that doesn't mean that I don't raid the candy section the day after these holidays pass! Right after Christmas, my husband went to the grocery store and got me a box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates for 75% off. And today is the day after Valentine's Day, and it also happens to be grocery shopping day, so I imagine I'll come home with some kind of sweet treat discounted from the holiday.
