50% Drug and Grocery Store Sales

I talked in an earlier post about shopping in advance for gifts, but shopping in advance for Christmas items is a good idea as well. Items to stock up on now would be:

-scotch tape
-wrapping paper
-gift bags
-candy canes
-Christmas decorations
-candy canes (they don’t expire or melt if kept in a cool place)
-assorted chocolate for Valentines day

While out shopping, I picked up candy canes and a tree skirt marked 50% off. Now I won’t have to pay full price for these items next Christmas.
