MUM of three, Chanel Tomlin, took the stress out of Christmas 2022, as all the decorations were taken care of… 12 months earlier.
She said: “I actually went in just to get makeup wipes – and yes, I forgot about them!”
Chanel visited her local B&M at Southend Airport and picked up loads of jewelry, lights and even a 6ft tree, all for just £22.
Also included in the mix are discount wrapping paper and a star case to wear on her newly bought tree too.
Most people don’t start Christmas shopping, including stocking up on all the equipment to equip the house, until the end of the year.
But Chanel thinks she cracked the code to Earn the best bargain 12 months early, because that’s the cheapest time you’ll find any item on her Christmas wish list.
In total, she’ll have to shell out £251.50 for a big carnival ride, but January sales and clearance merchandise mean whole series of discounts on some items may be expensive before December 25th.
Chanel said: “I discovered the jewels had been reduced to £1 and as I told my husband I wanted new pieces this Christmas I thought I’d get some. while possible.”
But with what was supposed to be a plane visit, it wasn’t long before more Christmas sales caught her eye.
“I started filling up my basket and then realized they had light boxes, and even a Christmas tree for £1,” she said.
“So I had to ditch the basket and go get a stroller instead!”
She explains that the only way she can find a bargain during Christmas is right after the holidays are over.
Although the shops have rushed from Santa and his elves to the Easter bunny and all the coils he will carry instead, you can still grab some bargains from this past holiday season if you know where to look.
Most stores are trying to move their old stock to make room for all the new Spring staples, so there’s always a discount.
“I’ll be checking as often as I can in early January for sale items,” Chanel said.
But once Christmas doesn’t happen, she also has tricks up her sleeve to keep prices down throughout the year.
“I also have the B&M app, and if you scan items that are already on sale, you can sometimes find them a lot cheaper,” she says.
“I’ve found a lamp for 10p, a rug for £2 and even a Halloween costume for 10p before that.”
She explains that it’s definitely worth rummaging through the bargains because they pop up when you least expect it – and sometimes when the event you’re planning makes absolutely no sense, that’s when things take a turn for the worse. should be the cheapest.
