AFTER HALLOWEEN SALES!

I don't know about you but I hate to pay full price for anything.  Well food might be the exception but if I can find that on sale I'm there!  So as you can imagine after the 'holiday' is my favorite time to shop retail.  I don't buy many decorations during the season and Halloween is no exception.  Yesterday was my first chance to hit some stores looking for after Halloween sales.! 

Hobby Lobby and 66% off~

I really love this 'BOO' with the tea light
cute huh!
Bad pic but so cute for the cubbies next year
This will also be in the cubbies!  

 Michael's  and 70-80% off 
Candles were less then $1 and the cute acorns and pumpkins in the bags were $1.19...think I'm going back for more candles today

I'm joining these parties today
because Halloween and Fall decorations on sale
Oh yes, favorites!! 
and 
Seasonal Sundays for the same reason!

I hope you will stop by and see what others are doing this weekend! 

Don't forget you have until midnight Sunday 11/7 to enter my One Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway here!

Happy Junkin!
Linda

All of my Halloween stuff was either bought at estate sales or after the holiday sales. Yesterday, I bought Tootie a costume, the grandbabies some dress-up clothes, and myself a wig for next year, all at Wal-Mart 75% off. Gotta love those sales!

Lovin' your boo sign! I was out today too, just some rubber mice, orange decorating sugar and new pumpkin carving tools for next year:@)

Such a smart shopped, my new rule is don't buy it unless you can "see" where you are going to use it! I just have so much stuff and sometimes I don't even get all of it out!
You are so organized...I need to take lessons from you!

Well done Linda. I stopped in at a Holiday open house today and looked at a Boo sign and this chick said I could have it for 20.00 dollars...dear heavens can you imagine how fast I left that store. hugs♥olive

I always look forward to the after Christmas sales for this very reason! I can always find some cute new decoration to save for next year. (Your boo candle holder is soooo cute!)

Linda I went to AC Moore today and they had all their fall stuff 75% off. I so wanted to buy so much but right now I just have no room to store anything. I did buy some cream silk hydrangeas!! I went to buy more beads for my deer. I bought all they had of the kind I needed.

Sarah said...

Good finds! It's always fun to add holiday items when one finds them on sale. ~ Sarah

Donnie said...

Love all your little finds. I always have plans to go get some holiday stuff on sale but after the date I lose interest. I need to take you shopping with me.

Love HL's sales. I went one day this last week, but did not buy any of the Halloween things. Went looking for a black toggle clasp, but didn't have what I needed. I am the same way - rarely pay full price, with the exception of food when I have to.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Oh Linda, how I love those H.L. after season sales! You found some cute things. Love that boo candle, and the little guy in the H'ween costume will be so cute in your cubbies. The closest Michael's to me is too far away to go just for candles, but those green ones would even work for Christmas. Great link up for Favorite Things. laurie

i was hardly able to find anything on clearance, i don't know why. there were literally empty shelves at michaels and joann's. even homegoods hardly had anything. oh well.

i am with you on the not decorating until after thanksgiving. i'm surprised how many people appear to be starting earlier!

Brenda Kula said...

I need to get out there and shop the after Halloween sales, I see!

Diann said...

HI Linda!

Oh, you got some cute clearance stuff! And you can never go wrong getting the clearanced candles and using them throughout the year!

Marlis said...

Cute clearance items.. can't wait to see what you do with them next year...

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Cute, Linda! You always find such cute things.

XO,

Sheila :-)

lulumusing said...

Oh, you are good. Who can resist a bargain, but what happens with me is I buy the things and then forget I have them! Hmmm, what does that say!

The Tablescaper said...

You got some great bargains. I didn't have any luck with after Halloween sales. I think I've gotten that much pickier as time has gone on - too much stuff! It was great having you be a part of Seasonal Sundays!

You did well. I have decided I have enough Halloween, but I did buy some ribbon at 50 cents a roll.
