BUY THESE IN JANUARY AND SAVE! : CARDS AND PAPER

I know that the last thing on your mind is holiday cards, but now is probably a great time to stock up on them. The generic greetings tend to be the same, so you can get great deals on Christmas or Chanukah cards (though New Year’s cards will probably be slightly harder to match up!).

While you’re at it, ornaments and holiday gift wrap will also be offered at rock-bottom prices, so if you have the storage space available, January is a great time to stock up.

Here are some great tips on buying holiday wrapping paper to get the best bang for your buck, as well as some  creative ways to gift wrap that can be used for upcoming holidays.
