Christmas Gift Ideas: The Perfect $20 Christmas Gift For Only 99¢
I love to give little ones dress up costumes for Xmas. It’s something they really seem to enjoy getting and they last them a really long time. But, I’m not fond of paying retail, if you didn’t know. So, I like to shop AFTER Halloween.
Now, I rarely shop Kmart because they don’t have great QUALITY merchandise, and as you know, I’m a quality girl, but there is one product they have that no where else carries, so I usually go after Halloween to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.
They have a TON of clearance Halloween costumes for 90% off. This made most of the ones I saw 99¢-$2.99, which is perfect when you are on a budget. I simply remove the Halloween part and no one ever knows how little I pay for a nice gift.
If you want to make some money, you can very easily purchase a lot of the outfits, and store them safely until next years’ Halloween. Sell them during the holiday and make a nice little bundle! This is what I used to do with kids winter and summer clothes as well.
I remember one year, I bought about 30 Halloween costumes and because I had so many, I sold them all for $150; didn’t want to mess with selling them individually. Got a few low-ball bids, but ended up meeting a lady who wanted to resell them in her store and she bought them all. It took me a few minutes to list the ad, about 10 minutes to purchase the costumes, 3 minutes to take from my trunk and put into storage tubs, 10 minutes to show them to her, and I made a good $100 profit! I was happy because it was ‘quick money’ and she was happy because she had the time to really make more. Win win!
Have you ever thought about buying after Halloween costumes for Christmas presents? What other after-holiday sales could you use to make top Christmas gifts?
