Black Friday is cool and all, but real ones know that the best discounts come once Jan 1 hits and the holidays have ended. Many brands drop sales the day after the festivities (and some even start just a few hours after), often offering their biggest markdowns of the year to start preparing for spring. And you can rest assured at this point in the new year, a majority of brands have some great sales in the works, especially when it comes to home goods. Yes, many end-of-season decor sales are well under way — and the deals are probably better than you’d expect.
It’s true that the discounts came earlier and better than anticipated, but the products on sale are definitely typical of these annual events. The markdowns happening now can mainly be found on seasonal decor, so be prepared to see a lot of trees, ornaments, stockings, and more — and to stock up for when the holidays roll around again (because it’s always sooner than you expect). However, that’s certainly not all that’s discounted right now. Among the festive pieces are also many regular items as well — furniture, bedding, rugs... the list goes on.
Often, these end-of-season sales do last well into February, and also tend to improve as they progress (think deeper discounts). That said, at this point in the game, stores are undoubtedly offering the best selections you’ll find all year — so you may not want to wait if you have your heart set on scoring any particular discounts. Ahead, all the markdown events you can start shopping immediately.
