I am in the process of developing a printable calendar, but in the meantime... below are the items that I purchase at the end of the season so I save a TON of money. It was hard the first year because I had to buy double (expensive for this year and then the sale items for next year) but once you get through the pain of the first year, you will save so much money!! I keep my items organized in a seasonal storage box so that I don't end up with a million boxes of junk - I purchase no more than I can fit into the corresponding box, then that's it.
- Purchase Christmas Gifts Throughout the Year
- Stock up on meat during BOGO
- Gift Bags
- Holiday Cards
- Disposable Plates and Napkins (sometimes even the seasonal solid colors go on sale which is great!!)
Household Decorations (when parts break - make a note and buy them at the end of the season and stock up on a few extra for the next year)
