Two Words: Game On

My presents have been opened and the cookies have been eaten, meaning there is only one favorite part of my holiday season left...the after Christmas sales!

After Christmas sales are the best because all the items you have been coveting since Fall are on super sale and the gifts you wanted to buy for yourself (but restrained) are now marked down.

Although it never feels good to add more dollars to the spent column, some of these post-holiday deals are hard to resist.

For example:

As I lamented last October it is never fun being at the pool wearing the same swimsuit as a model half your size.  You do feel slightly better knowing your suit was 20% off though.

Through Thursday, save 20% on Victoria's Secret Clearance Swimwear

Granted I will give you that the thought of putting on a swimsuit after a few weeks of indulgence makes me a little queasy, but truly this is a rare deal from the folks at VS.  You can get a swimsuit for less than $25 which is a rarity, never mind how fun it is flipping through the different color options and selecting the perfect bottom.  Order now and save for spring break!

Save Up To 75% at Bath and Body Works

At the B and BW, you can almost always get some version of a deal.  The deal that I am most interested in is the 50% off seasonal Slatkin candles.  You can save the more holiday-oriented scents for next year while grabbing a few winter scents to use the rest of the season.  And while you are there, you can always grab my favorite Anti-Bacterial Hand Soap for $2.50 each.  Score!

Simply Vera Vera Wang at Kohl's

I love, love, love the holiday collection from Vera Wang.  The bedazzling, artist brushstrokes and jewel tones, so much to love, so little price.  Grab a few pieces at a fraction of the cost to make your boring winter basics a little more interesting, especially when trying to beat the winter wardrobe doldrums.

Holiday Clearance at Cost Plus World Market

I have been obsessing over these bangles for about two months now so I am thrilled to take advantage of a good ole' fashioned two-for-one.  In case you didn't know, World Market has the best tribal influenced jewels at a much lower cost than other retailers.  You might be tempted to save your tribal bangles until spring...don't!  Bangles of all styles are popping up on the wrists of fashion plates everywhere this winter.

This is just a sampling of all the fab sales out there for post-holiday shoppers.  Head to your favorite retailer's website and see what they have to offer.  Shop early to take advantage of the best inventory and best selection.  Prices will go lower in about two weeks but if you wait, you will have access to a fraction of the selection.

Treat yourself...you have been good all year!
