Wait Until The Holidays Are Over To Buy These Three Items

Holiday deals may have you going after sales left and right, but there are a few items you should resist the urge to splurge on now, and grab during post-seasonal deals later.

highlights a few such items, warning consumers that even something that seems great now will cost even less when the buying bonanza of the season is through.

‚Ä¢¬†Clothing: It’s been warmer than usual this year, which means people have been buying less warm cashmeres, furs, coats, scarves and flannel pajamas. Those products will be deeply discounted after Dec. 25, say experts, who advise buying loved ones a gift card to be used later.

‚Ä¢ Holiday decorations: Your overzealous, tinsel-happy aunt knows that the best deals on holiday decorations will happen just when you’re ready to take down the tree. Stock up for next year on wrapping paper, ornaments and other festive items.

‚Ä¢ Jewelry: The flashy stuff is an attractive buy for the holidays, but if you want to make a big purchase, hold off until after Valentine’s Day if you can. Prices could be cut by half for all things sparkly.
