Although many people will be looking to pack Christmas decorations away at the end of 2022, the end-of-year sales are actually the best time to prepare for Christmas 2023. 

While it may seem strange to buy new decorations a year before putting them out on display, the Christmas sales offer a great opportunity to pick out high-quality, timeless pieces at a more affordable price.

With the end of the year upon us, this is when our favorite home stores will be offering their left-over Christmas decor stock for less.

How can I save money on Christmas decorations? 

One of the best ways to save money on Christmas decorations is to purchase timeless decor pieces just after Christmas each year ready for the year after. This method not only allows you to take advantage of the winter sales but also helps to spread the cost of the festive season over multiple months. 

Are prices lower before or after Christmas?

Prices at both homeware and clothing stores tend to be cheaper immediately after Christmas than before. The 26th of December typically marks the beginning of the end-of-year sale season, often featuring better deals than Black Friday on a wider range of goods, making it the best time of year to prepare for the year ahead.
