December Deals and Freebies

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over, but that doesn’t mean there is a shortage of great holiday deals. The end of the year is typically time to clean out the old inventory to make room for new things coming in January – meaning discounted goods!


Get items like electronics and toys well into the month of December. The Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales don’t stop in November for these popular gifts! Chain stores such as Best Buy, Walmart, Target, JC Penney, Kohl’s and other retailers have holiday sale events until Christmas for any last-minute shopping.

Save big on Christmas decorations starting December 26. Stores want to clear their Christmas inventory of wrapping paper, ornaments, trees and décor pieces and boast sales upwards of 50% off! Some options for these sales are at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and Walmart. Don’t forget to stock up on discounted candy as well.

Need a White Elephant gift, but don’t have any clue what to get?
