Christmas Decoration

Some of you may be thinking “why buy decoration AFTER it’s over” but this is where you think way ahead (1 year ahead to be exact). If you’re not bothered by your Christmas tree or house having the latest and trendiest decoration of the year, look out for discounts on Christmas decorations. This is the period of time when stores are trying to sell off all of their Christmas inventory to make way for new items and will definitely sell it at a discount.

I was just walking past Typo the other day and their mini Christmas trees and beautiful fairy lights were being sold at only $5 from the original $15!
