Hello lovelies!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! I certainly did :) Now I'm a girl who is not afraid to admit that I love a good sale. It sounds silly but I really do get a shopping high from saving money. So naturally, the after Christmas sales have me going GA-GA! After Christmas shopping has been a tradition that I absolutely blame my mom on. Year after year we search high and low for those half off gift sets and half off holiday decor. I'm getting excited just thinking about it...ANYWAYS it's time to show you guys what I got this year! I would also like to mention that in the past I would go out at the butt crack of dawn on December 26 of every year to at least 3 Walmarts. This year I had to work that day, so I did my shopping two days after Christmas. I thought all the good stuff would be gone by then, but my scouting skills and thrifty nose led me to some steals! Let's begin the madness...

First stop? Albertson's. Yup, I said Albertson's.

I found these LED lights and these decorative glitter snowflakes. Random? Of course. 

These babies are bright! This picture was taken on my iPhone with all the lights in the room off. These guys about only $2.50! They were originally almost $11. Savings? No. A STEAL!

Although these snowflakes are random, I figured I could decorate my coffee table with them. At only 32 cents, there was no way I could walk away from these.

Next stop on the crazy train: Walgreen's

Ok how cute is this cupcake ornament?! Only paid 50 cents for them! The Christmas Classics are some of my absolute childhood favorites. I had already wanted to buy this, but I was even more happy to get it on sale for $10. I also bought some super cute wrapping paper for $1.50, which is an amazing deal for 50 sq. ft. of paper (AKA A LOT)

I've had my Christmas tree for a few years now, but I've never gotten a star for it. 

I thought this star was beautiful, and it was only less than 5 bucks!

Next Victim: WALMART.
Now I knew there wouldn't be much there since I wasn't able to go the first day after Christmas, but I was happy to have found the items that I did.

I always make sure I pick up a Gillette gift set for my boyfriend, because it's such a great price. This whole set was only $7.44. It includes the razor, shaving cream, body wash, and deodorant. Saving some money here people!

Even though my dog is a little destroyer, I always try to get him some extra toys during the sale. This stocking came with 6 toys and was less than $2.50. I also swooned over this Merry Christmas wall decal, which I nabbed for only $1.50!

Last target? TARGET. No seriously, I really went to Target ha ha

Somehow I ran out of tape this year. That's my bad for not stocking up last year, but I won't have to worry because these 4 rolls were only $1.50

As you can tell, I have to stock up on supplies. The tissue paper was $1.50 for a huge pack, and both gift stickers were 50 cents a pack. Each pack contained 48 stickers. BAM!

It's all about the details. The Merry Christmas ribbon was 50 cents. The gist tags came in two packs, at $1.50 each. How cute are they?!

Funny enough I saw these pillows the day before Christmas, and I was really upset that I hadn't seen them sooner. Good thing I didn't buy them until 3 days later, because I got each pillow for $1.50!!!! I died.

I absolutely am loving the whole vintage Christmas decor look. I had already been swooning over this tree a month ago, but patience is a virtue because I got it for only $4.88!!! MINE! The little adorable wooden sign was only 50 cents too!!! THIS IS IS CRAZY!

And lastly, I bought the nicest lights I have ever owned.

These lights were orinally $17.99, and I got them for less than 9 dollars.

There is something so fun, festive, and stylish about these lights. SWOON!

Ahhhhhh. I can't wait to decorate my house next year, and I look forward to the next sale :)

Thank you so much for the support! Happy holidays and have a happy New Year! 'Til next year savvy savers, MUAH!
