After Christmas Bargains

The stores have much to offer in the mark down section this season. An added bonus is that the colors are not limited to traditional holiday colors anymore. This means that you can buy linens, tablewear,home decor and decorations to use all year round at 50% off.

Think about ways to use the wreaths to celebrate winter. Would removing the bow or adding a different one make it fit your den decor? Candles can be bought for gifts as well as to treat yourself. Change up the candle by adding a bit of ribbon or a charm to the outside.

While shopping I saw lots of the metal containers that work well for drink storage during a party. Textures or cut out designs give them such decorating interest. Like the style but want more than just holiday use out of them? Spray paint them in a great color. Give them a new job by drilling holes in the bottom for drainage and they become great planters for the outdoors.

Discount shopping is so much fun. Combine it with a creative outlook and you will come home with new additions to your home decor.

I just got some tissue paper and cute jewelry boxes at Walgreen's (for packaging orders and gifts) and because they happened to be red and green, they were less than a dollar each!
