After-Christmas Sales, Anyone?

While the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year, savvy shoppers know it’s the day after Christmas that’s best for scooping up fabulous goodies at rock bottom prices.

Or maybe you’re itching to spend a gift card someone oh-so-thoughtfully gave you.

Me? I know EXACTLY what I want, cause I’ve been eyeballing J. Crew’s BouclĂ© tweed short scarf coat for weeks. But the sale price of $229 (marked down from $350), is still a bit much for a jacket that’s more cute than functional.

So starting at midnight I’ll be checking J.Crew’s website obsessively waiting for this baby to be marked down further and hoping it doesn’t sell out in my size.

Now tell me, what’s on your after-Christmas sale shopping list?

  1. OK, I don't even have enough patience to make it through Christmas day. So far I have cleaned up at J Crew and Banana Republic. OK, Talbots too. Target is next. After that I will spend time with my family. I think...

  2. I am staying at home this year...so sad. No after Christmas sales for me. But I'll let you know if I really make it depending on if Neiman's has anything really good! LOL

  4. That is a really cute coat. I may make it to target but I am not looking for anything in particular, just browsing
    I hope you get that coat!

  11. Haha, Bettye! I got 2 of those as gifts, though I think one was from Target. I think the main thing I want to look around for are salsa dancing shoes.

  15. The sales were amazing. I didn't buy too much after Christmas, but guess what... the sales are still going on. The same after Christmas sale Macy's had they turned into the first sale of the year. JcPenny's had a huge sale on homegoods too.

  18. Okay, I'm obviously a little late on this one, but I got a Cole Haan bag I had been eyeing about 2 months prior. It had been damn near $500...and I got it half off with an additional 30%. My friend and I were reminded of how much companies really try to rip us off, lol.
