Robinhood Trading App: Great For Beginners and Pros. Slow Start, But Now I’m Loving It. Watch Out Stockpile

I had originally planned on writing a blog post on Robinhood very early in 2017. I downloaded the app, attempted to set up my bank account for automatic transfers, and that is pretty much where the idea stopped. I figured that I would get some sort of notification that my account was setup, but that never happened. Right off the bat, I began to think that Robinhood wasn’t going to be very good.

After waiting a few months (strange, I know), I finally just decided to email customer support. I let them know that my account was never able to connect to my bank account. They quickly replied that there was some sort of error, and I resubmitted my bank info. I actually submitted two bank accounts this time, just to be safe. Finally, after a few days, both accounts were this time set up and ready to begin funding my Robinhood account!

Don’t let this first part scare you off from Robinhood, as honestly, this is my only negative experience with them so far. It really was never that much of a big deal anyway. Fast forward to today, and I am absolutely loving using the Robinhood app. I blogged before about how much I love using Stockpile, which is a brokerage that offers stock for only 99 cents per trade, and you can even purchase fractional shares. I still use them, but have mostly just made that account be my “long” portfolio. I purchase companies I believe in long-term, and utilize Stockpile’s Divident Reinvestment Program (DRIP) to compound my gains over the long haul.

As of this writing, Robinhood doesn’t offer a DRIP, or the ability to purchase fractional shares. They do, however, have one absolutely AMAZING feature. ZERO fees. Yes, you read that right. Nothing whatsoever for the basic version. Stockpile also has a drawback where any shares you purchase on any given day post to your account at the end of the day, at the closing price of that particular stock. Robinhood is nothing like that, and is just like any “regular” brokerage where you can buy shares at any time during the day. Because of this, I use Robinhood as a swing trading account. Buy low, sell high, rinse and repeat. I don’t expect to accumulate dividends in my Robinhood account, but on a few positions I have actually already done just that. It all depends on how long I end up holding a position, as not all of my original plans always stay the same due to market ups and downs, etc…

Robinhood does offer a Robinhood Gold upgrade, which has a cost, but I have yet to begin using that. It offers a few extra features such as Pre-Market and After-Hours trading, the ability to trade on margin, and instant access to funds once you sell a position. I may eventually look into this, but for now I am more than happy with the original version.

One thing I really like about Robinhood is how you are able to access your funds instantly after funding your account. You initiate a bank transfer, and just like that, those funds are available for trading. With Stockpile, you have to wait days before you can do any trading with deposited funds. This really helps when you see an opportunity in the market, and are able to instantly capitalize on it. Honestly, this may be the best feature Robinhood has to offer, in my opinion anyway. Factor in that there are zero buying and selling commissions, and it makes Robinhood a must-have app for any stock market beginner or advanced trader or investor, even if just only as a “side account.”

One more thing I really like is signing into the app. With Stockpile, every time you sign in you have to put in your email address and password. If you log out even for a minute, you have to put that info back in. It can be annoying in a hurry. With the Robinhood app, you choose a four-digit pin number and only have to use that every time you go to use the app. How convenient! I also really enjoy the push notifications that Robinhood offers that are customized based on your positions and watchlist. The Robinhood app, in my opinion, absolutely destroys the Stockpile app.

If you are looking into Robinhood and wondering if it’s worth a try, it absolutely is. If you’ve never heard of Robinhood, I hope I was able to convince you that it may be worth trying out. I’m more impressed than I ever thought I would be. A year or so from now, who knows, I may actually end up ONLY using Robinhood when it comes to the choice between them and Stockpile. One thing is for sure though, when it comes to commission alone, both apps give TD Ameritrade (which I also have an account with) and others a real run for their money. As time goes on, I can see Robinhood and Stockpile (and others who we don’t even know about yet) really disrupting these companies unless they really try and adapt to the times. If you’re a full-time day trader, etc.. I get it, you may NEVER stop using your regular brokerage or software for these apps. But never say never. Give it some time and you just don’t know what innovation and disruption may bring.

Have you tried Robinhood? Or have you tried Stockpile? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Update (10/6/2017): After writing this post, I realized that my Stockpile app had been out of date for quite some time. They have added a ton of features including push notifications, better ways to track your profit/loss, a cleaner/smoother overview, a better way to sign in, and a bunch more. I was actually very impressed with the updates, so I wanted to give them my props. The updates have made my chances of fully leaving Stockpile for Robinhood, at least in the very near term, much more slim. Awesome job, guys!

Late Summer / Early Fall = Great Time For Clearance & Savings!

Late Summer & early Fall is a great time to enjoy a few last BBQ’s, hit up that local swimming pool or amusement park, and begin to buy Halloween decorations (all of which I love!), but it is a great time for something else as well. It’s a great time for clearance shopping!

If you are into gardening like I am, and into saving money (who isn’t?!), this time of year is a great opportunity to get things like planters, bricks, and other gardening supplies for cheap. One place to begin your search is Wal-Mart. I went to Wal-Mart a few weeks ago and was able to score some bricks for my garden for under 80 cents each! I am already using them, but another great idea if you have the space is to purchase these items, place them in storage, and use them at the beginning of next Spring. Unless of course you are lucky enough to live somewhere like California where it is possible to garden year-round. I’m jealous if that’s the case!

Other stores which are great to check this time of year are Target & Ollie’s Outlet. Both offer great sales on seasonal merchandise year-round.

If you’re in the market for some Summer/warm weather clothing for yourself or to resell as I do, TJ Maxx is a great place to hit this time of year. As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, twice a year in January and July, TJ Maxx begins their “Yellow Tag Clearance” sale. As they begin stocking the new seasonal inventory, everything else gets a yellow tag with some of the deepest discounts available. Each week these items get a deeper discount until they are either all gone, or they end up sending them off elsewhere. All of the best stuff goes fast so I always like to visit early and visit often.

This time I visited one of my favorite purchases was a Bugatchi Uomo shirt I scored for $22, which originally retails for OVER $100! I was also able to score some great deals on Free People women’s leggings, Jordan kid’s shirts and shorts, Nike polo shirts, and a lot of other great things all of which I am reselling on eBay. I love the TJ Maxx “Yellow Tag Clearance” event and am already looking forward to it beginning again in 2018. It’s been going on now a few weeks, and as of this writing is still going on, but you better hurry to your local TJ Maxx before everything is gone and Fall/Winter clothing season is in full swing.

In addition to clothing TJ Maxx also extends the “Yellow Tag Clearance” to other hard goods throughout the store. You never know what you may find!

Do you frequent any of the mentioned stores for clearance this time of year? Any great scores you’d like to share? Any other stores you visit this time of year to save big? We’d love to hear from you! Leave some comments below!

Ollie’s Bargain Outlet Haul: Taking Advantage of Once-A-Year “Ollie Days!” Customer Appreciation Sale

Since I started this blog one of my favorite things to do so far has been the shopping hauls I have shared. I have a short list of stores I plan on blogging about, and Ollie’s Bargain Outlet was one of them. So when I found out about “Ollie Days!,” a once-a-year 15%-off-everything Customer Appreciation Sale, I found this to be the perfect opportunity.

Ollie’s was founded in 1982 and from their Wikipedia page the basic concept of their store is the following: “Ollie’s Bargain Outlet deals in surplus merchandise obtained from various retailers, suppliers or manufacturers throughout the country, whether in the form of closeouts, bankruptcy sales or other similar means of buying the stock at below wholesale costs.”

I first learned about Ollie’s when I was young, on one of my regular Summer vacations my family took to HersheyPark in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Near the hotel we stayed at there was an Ollie’s, and I quickly fell in love. I have memories of buying a lot of cheap office supplies. Yes, I was just a kid, but even then I enjoyed having an “office.” I may have not actually been running businesses at the time, but I always pretended I was, or just made plans, wrote down ideas and goals, etc…

One of my favorite things about Ollie’s is that you never quite know what you may find. As mentioned from Wikipedia, Ollie’s sells surplus merchandise from different retailers and manufacturers, so there is always something different. They carry everything from food, to books, cleaning supplies, seasonal items, and literally everything in between.

On this past trip which I am sharing, I was able to spend only $18.69. First thing I scored was something which I was literally in need of buying this week anyway, and that was various Axe products; shampoo, body wash, and deodorant. Priced at only $2.99 each, what a great deal! I would have paid more anywhere else. I also scored a frame for a project my girlfriend is doing, which was marked at $3.99. Not the best deal on that, compared to just picking up a frame at Wal-Mart or Dollar Tree, but I didn’t feel like making another stop.

Finally two of my favorite scores were the cinder blocks and pieces of carpet. The pieces of carpet, which I got to place in various spots in my apartment, were only $1.89 each, and possibly the best deal of all, the cinder blocks were only each $1!  I have already used these in my garden and they were just what I was in need of! All of the prices I mentioned were the marked prices, but don’t forget that EVERYTHING in the store during “Ollie Days!” is 15%-off! Until my Sister mentioned it and I then got the advertisement in the mail, I had never heard about this yearly sale before. I guarantee I’ll be back next year!

If you have an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet in your area, and have never stopped to give it a chance, I recommend you doing so. I hope you enjoyed the haul, and as I mentioned I have several other stores I plan on sharing soon, some of which you likely have never been to. I imagine at least some of you haven’t. I’ll also be doing more hauls of stores which have proven to be popular in doing so already on this blog, such as Dollar Tree.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or anything else, PLEASE leave them below! Also follow us on Twitter & Facebook for a lot of exclusive content.

THANK YOU!

Sometimes Holiday Clearance Becomes Useful Not In A Year, But Immediately!

If you have read this blog a while you may know that me and my girlfriend like to take advantage of Holiday Clearance. We like to shop the day and week after all major holidays including Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day & Easter. I have no problem with buying up clearance, storing it a year, and when that particular holiday rolls around again already being (mostly) prepared.

I love to decorate for pretty much every holiday and season, so of course Spring is no exception. During my trip this past week to Target I was able to take advantage of the clearance, and in addition to getting a few Easter decorations and supplies for next year, I was able to score some Spring decorations which are perfect to put up now! In fact, I have already decorated with them.

Target first goes to 50%-off decor and 30%-off candy the first day after each holiday. Then within a few days they go to 70%-off decor and 50%-off candy. After a few more days they finally go to 90%-off all decor. During this trip all decor was only 70%-off, but still worthwhile for the few things I was able to find.

It made it even MORE valuable to us that we were able to find the Spring decorations mixed in with the Easter clearance. If you are ever unsure of if something is included in the clearance at Target use their red price scanners which are throughout most stores. I have been surprised by many things over the years. Sometimes things are even actually a higher percentage discount than you expect, as the signage doesn’t get updated right away.

I hope you enjoy this quick little haul / blog, and don’t forget to check your local stores for clearance after any holiday or season. I wrote a blog a while back with some other information on clearances which you can find here. All stores vary by location, so it’s best to frequent different stores and learn how they usually mark things down. I have a few more hauls planned soon, including a few stores I like to visit every now and then to save money including Ollie’s Outlet, Aldi, and Five Below. If you have any other suggestions on shopping hauls or other content, any questions, or any other comments, PLEASE leave them below. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Dollar Tree Haul – AWESOME Place To Shop For Household Goods, Supplies & Fun!

One of the things I wanted to do with this blog is to share some of the ways I utilize certain stores to maximize my savings and household budget. I have many stores I frequent, but the first of many I’d like to share is Dollar Tree. They are a chain of 13,000+ stores across the United States, which unlike certain other “dollar stores,” offers everything for only $1!

In addition to random household items and other things which we will get in to, many of the locations have a grocery section. Some even have a frozen section. I don’t often buy many things from the grocery section, but here and there I do get a small pickup. Some of the main things I buy from Dollar Tree are household cleaning products, Holiday decorations, greeting cards, and health and beauty items.

As you see in the included haul photograph from a shopping trip I made just yesterday, I got many of the things I mentioned already. First off I bought some decorations for the upcoming Easter holiday in addition to St. Patrick’s Day greeting cards I plan on sending out this week. You have to look carefully through the greeting cards at Dollar Tree. Obviously most are only $1, but some are actually only $0.50! On this trip I also bought some health and beauty products for me and my girlfriend, some seeds to plant this Spring, some disinfecting wipes, and yes, a cheese grater. We made a recipe last week with fresh Parmesan cheese and realized while making it that we didn’t have one (or lost it!). Luckily we didn’t actually need the grater for the recipe, but now we have one to use up the rest!

I didn’t buy much of it on this particular haul, but one of my other favorite things to purchase at Dollar Tree are holiday gift wrapping and packaging materials. Paper, bows, tags, bags, boxes, you name it, Dollar Tree has it. Being only $1 really helps you stretch your cash so when it is time to buy a gift you can spend more money on the actual gift and less money on the stuff to place that gift inside. Of course sometimes I do still buy certain things for gift wrapping at other stores, especially if it is on clearance, or sometimes just certain things that are unique. As I say often, you gotta live! Most Dollar Tree locations also have a section where you can buy inflated helium balloons, which can come in handy for many purposes.

Walking through Dollar Tree, to me, is always like an adventure. You never quite know what you may find that you need, or sometimes, just want. When everything is only $1, you can easily squeeze more “wants” into your shopping trips and not only “needs.” I always take my shopping list with me and am often able to cross off many things that I need.

I am always an investor first at heart, so I also just briefly wanted to mention that I do also own a small position in Dollar Tree ($DLTR) stock. It’s been a solid long-term growth stock, although it has recently pulled back from highs around $97 per share in August of 2016 to the level it is currently trading at of around $75 per share. As I usually do when you can get a discount and it is a solid stock, I say buy more!

If you would like more information on Dollar Tree you can check out their website here. You can also shop many of the items right on the site, although I currently don’t take advantage of that feature. I do know some friends who do. If you enjoy these haul blogs, let me know. I plan on doing hauls for other stores, and if you guys enjoy them, more Dollar Tree hauls as well. What did you enjoy? What would you have liked to see me do more of or talk more about? Other thoughts or suggestions? Leave them below, and I will respond!

Thank you for reading and enjoy your day!

New Free Money Alert: Earn Extra Cash on Stuff You Would Already Buy Anyway with eBay Bucks!

I’m always looking for new ways to maximize my purchases. In addition, eBay is somewhere that I often shop for both business and personal reasons. If you put these two together, using eBay’s program “eBay Bucks” makes perfect sense. It sorts of reminds me of eBates, which I absolutely love and have used for several years. You make purchases during a quarter of the year, and following that quarter you get paid, simply for doing what you already would have done anyway.

There are, however, a few differences. First off, with eBay Bucks you receive your payment in the form of credit on eBay, as opposed to eBates where you get either a PayPal payment or a paper check. Second, unlike eBates who offers various percentages for different stores on the platform, eBay Bucks has just one base percentage which you can earn, which is currently just 1%, but can and has changed in the past. Nonetheless 1% is 1% and I’ll take it!

eBay Bucks has been around a while, and I’ve heard of it in the past, but just this past week I finally got around to signing up (which is free) and made my first few purchases. It already shows my balance of earned eBay Bucks, which is awesome, and like any program gets you excited to continue earning.

After each quarter of the year ends (January through March, April through June, etc..) you are supposed to receive your payment within 3-15 days of the end of that quarter. One more difference between eBay Bucks and eBates which I have noticed is that you need to use your earned eBay Bucks within 30 days of receiving it. If you are like me and make a lot of business  (or any) purchases anyway, this won’t be much of a problem. If you don’t shop very often on eBay, it may be. Just something that you need to keep in mind.

I havn’t used eBay Bucks for very long as I stated, but they also apparently do special promotions every so often where you can earn extra eBay Bucks. I look forward to using these promotions when I see them pop up. You can earn up to $100 on any single eBay purchase, and up to $500 every quarter. So, if you spend more than $10,000 on an eBay order or more than $50,000 in a quarter, you’re out of luck. But why are you spending that much on eBay anyway? I want to know! 😉

If you would like more information on eBay Bucks you can find it here and if you would like to sign up you can do so here.  Since using it is new to me as well, if I learn anything interesting, have things I really start to like, things I don’t like, etc.., I’ll either update this blog or post a new one. Thanks so much for reading and if you have any questions or comments PLEASE leave them below, and I will respond!

Thanks again!

3 More Ways I Earn Extra FREE Money Every Month: PayPal Business Debit MasterCard, Target REDcard & Wal-Mart Savings Catcher

If you know anything about me by now, it may be that I like to earn a little extra cash any way that I can. Today I wanted to share three more ways that I do just that every month.

First off I wanted to talk about something that I have done for MANY years….

***PayPal Business Debit MasterCard

The PayPal Business Debit MasterCard is one of the cards that has been in my wallet the longest. I have long been an eBay seller, and nearly 100% of the payments I receive from eBay go directly to my PayPal account. Having their Business Debit MasterCard when you sell on eBay is a must in my book. First off, you have direct access to your funds from sales. Second, and possibly above all else, when you use the card ANYWHERE as a credit card (not enter your pin) you earn 1% cash back on EVERY purchase! It’s really that simple.

Within the first week or two of every month you then receive your cash back for the previous month. There is no annual fee or any fees other than the original PayPal fees for your eBay sales, etc.. I use mine a lot for business purchases and a variety of other purchases throughout the month. It’s awesome getting the cash back every month for making purchases you already would have anyway.

If you would like more information on the PayPal Business Debit MasterCard you can find everything you need here.

Next up is yet another Debit Card I have used over a year now and highly recommend…

***Target REDcard

The Target REDcard is offered as a Credit OR Debit Card. Since I limit the amount of credit cards I open and don’t use any store credit cards usually, I recommend the Target REDcard Debit Card. The first selling point is that on EVERY purchase you make at Target or Target.com, you INSTANTLY save 5% off! In addition, you get free shipping on Target.com when using your REDcard. When you sign up for it you link it to your existing bank account, and every time you make a purchase after a few days the amount you spent comes out of your bank account. No fees, lots of perks, and 5% savings on EVERYTHING! You can’t go wrong.

I feel that I need to point out that I only make purchases at Target which I already would have anyway. I don’t buy things JUST to get the 5%-off. Doing that is where a lot of people can get into trouble. It’s important to comparison shop and make sure that you are still getting the best overall deal, and staying within your monthly budget.

If you would like more information on the Target REDcard everything you need is available here.

Finally I want to share a tool that I have used several years to once again earn FREE month every month…

***Wal-Mart Savings Catcher

The Wal-Mart Savings Catcher is very unique. Every time you shop at Wal-Mart you simply, first off, save your receipt. Using either the website or the available app, you enter your receipts, and it automatically after that compares your purchases to other local grocery stores, other national chains, and other convenience stores.

After a few days of processing you get back what, if any, savings that you could have otherwise earned shopping elsewhere. Doing just this I have earned enough Wal-Mart Bucks (money that can be spent at Wal-Mart or Wal-Mart.com) to get a free toaster oven, a free doormat, free food purchases, all sorts of things.

If you would like more information on the Wal-Mart Savings Catcher simply click here.

Final Thoughts:

These three tools, if you ask me, are all no-brainers. They are all free money simply for shopping like you already would have. The PayPal Business Debit MasterCard gets you 1% cash back ANYWHERE you shop and use the credit option. Target REDcard gets you 5% off of ANY Target purchase. Finally, the Wal-Mart Savings Catcher can save you HUGE depending on what you buy which may be on sale somewhere else, that you may have otherwise missed.

 

I recommend just sticking with your regular budget (and if you don’t have one get started, it’s easy!) and not making purchases just to feel like you are saving money, so why not? Keeping this in mind while you shop and use these tools will keep you out of trouble. Who doesn’t like earning free money? I know I do!

Thank you for reading and if you have any questions or comments please leave them below, and I will respond!

Thanks again!

Chevrolet / GM fan? Here’s A Credit Card I Recommend….

If you’ve read my blog a little you may know that I don’t recommend applying for more than one or two credit cards per year, sometimes not even a single one, but if you are in the market for a card right now I’ve got a recommendation for you. If you’re a fan of Chevy / General Motors cars, it’s even a more valuable suggestion.

Now first off I am well aware of the variety of regular, good old cash back credit cards that there are. There are actually a few I already recommend, and a few I am looking into this year. This blog post, however, is a different story. If you’re looking for a simple way to set aside extra cash to purchase a new car that you can earn simply from purchasing what you already would have anyway, then the Capital One BuyPower Card may be just what you are looking for.

I originally found the BuyPower Card through a mailing I received, at a time when I was ready to open a new account. I am a big fan of Chevy cars; over the years I have owned a Corsica, a Cavalier, a Cobalt, and the car I currently own which I bought brand new, a Cruze. Therefore I can pretty much guarantee you that my next car will also be a Chevy (likely another Cruze).

With the BuyPower Card you earn money off of every purchase that gets set aside for you when you are ready to get a new car at your local dealer. For the first $5,000 in purchases every year, you can earn 5% cash back towards a vehicle purchase, for a total of $250 a year you can possibly earn. After the first $5,000 in purchases, you can earn an unlimited 2% on everything else. Since I got my BuyPower card I have made sure to at least max out the first $5,000 in purchases every year. One of my favorite things to use it for is when I get service done at my local dealership. After spending the first $5,000 each year I will use the next card I have available, usually with the highest cash back, but not always depending on that month’s budget and goals. Never forget, the secret is ALWAYS paying off your credit card balance every month. Pay MOST of it BEFORE the cycle even ends to keep your utilization low!

Cards where you can earn a certain reward certainly aren’t new, as there is a Disney card out there and a bunch of others. This one, being that I am a big Chevy fan, to me was something that I just had to have in my wallet. Two more big selling points for me were that there is no annual fee, and the earnings you receive don’t expire. So for example you could cash in $200, if that is what you earned, next year. Or you could save for the next 15 years and cash in $6,000, if that is how much you are able to earn. I am planning on doing something similar to the second example, as it being just extra money I earn I’d love to use it for a “mostly free” car down the road (or at a big discount, nonetheless).

Capital One makes it easy to track your earnings, and the balance gets updated every month. If you are interested in checking out this card, head on over to https://www.buypowercard.com/.

Soon I’ll share some of the other cash back/reward cards I recommend. Some of which aren’t actually “credit cards.” I’ll share at least one of those soon. If you have any questions or comments PLEASE feel free to leave them below and I will respond!

THANKS again!

Don’t Forget About After-Christmas, After-Halloween, etc.. Clearance To Save Big!

When it comes time each year to buy the light-up pumpkin for Halloween or the new strand of snowflake lights for Christmas, it’s easy to notice how these purchases can add up quick. I’m the type of person that loves to look through the seasonal aisle with each passing season to see what’s new. I love decorating for the different holidays throughout the year.

Not only do I decorate for Halloween and Christmas, but I am known for putting up displays for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and a few others. For the smaller holidays I don’t go all out like I do for Christmas, for example, but I at least like to decorate the area in my living room around my television, put up new themed hand towels in the kitchen and bathroom, etc…

To be able to keep adding new decorations to my stockpile, and not break the bank, I use a tried and true method; hitting up the after-holiday clearances! Beginning the day after any holiday and going through the first week or two afterwards, you can score some great deals on decorations. By far, my favorite place for holiday clearance is TargetBeginning the day after Halloween or Christmas, you can score 50%-off, within 3-5 days all the decor goes to 70%-off, and in another 3-5 days what remains goes to 90%-off! At 90%-off I like to really do some damage!

I like to buy the $4.96 plastic bins from Wal-Mart which I use to store my holiday decorations in throughout the year, until the season comes back again. I used to think that being another year away, buying clearance wasn’t that smart. As I grew older, I realized that years begin to feel like they go by much faster, so why not save as much as 90% on something you will be buying again anyway?

I usually hit up a store the day after Christmas, then again within the first week once or twice, and finally a few weeks after for last-minute deals. I wouldn’t mind waiting until everything was 90%-off, but a lot of the best things that I actually would want go quick, and 50%-off is still a great deal. For Christmas this past year by hitting various clearances I stocked up on enough wrapping paper, gift tags, bows, gift boxes, lights, and more to get me through the 2017 season without having to buy any. I’ll have more money for gifts instead! (or more money to put into savings!)

Target is by far my favorite, but some of my other favorite places to check out are Wal-Mart as I mentioned, local grocery stores, local drug stores, and pretty much anywhere I happen to go in the week or two following a holiday. A big secret? TJ Maxx! After Christmas TJ Maxx begins to blowout winter clothing, Christmas merchandise, and a lot of other things in between. Only twice a year do they do their “Yellow Tag Clearance” and the weeks following Christmas is when it first starts. They do it again mid-year, around July. The “Yellow Tag Clearance” is literally a gold mine. If you’ve read most of my blog up until now, you may know that I am big into reselling. At this clearance you can find a TON of great stuff to resell such as clothing, accessories, toys, games, you name it. Sam’s Club is another place to score some great clearance. Pretty much anywhere you can think of, after Christmas, is well worth checking out to see what they may have available.

Do you do any after Christmas clearance shopping? Any certain places you like to go? Have a favorite deal that you’ve scored? I’d love to hear about it! Leave me some comments below and I will respond! THANKS for reading and enjoy your day!

Thanks again!
