It may only be March, but before you know it, Christmas will be here yet again! If the thought of the season already has you feeling all warm and tinsel-y, you may already be thinking about this year’s presents, food and, of course, decorations.
Or maybe you didn’t even put away last year’s decorations yet—we don’t judge!
But even if you have a hard time getting in the holiday spirit any time before Thanksgiving, now is really the time you should think about it. Why? Because although you may be tempted to buy your decorations as soon as they show up in stores for the season, it’s actually the worst time to buy them—at least for your wallet.
A better time to buy Christmas decorations? After Christmas—when everything is on sale. The best time? Right now, when stores seriously want to get rid of all their winter holiday stock and make room for spring and summer merchandise.
This is especially true at Home Depot where you can score some pretty unbelievable deals if you’re willing to think Christmas trees instead of a summer garden. Most of the holiday merchandise at the home improvement chain is at least half off, with some markdowns at 75 percent!
We searched through all the deals to find the best ones—here’s what we came up with:
