End-Of-Year Sales Cheat Sheet: What To Shop After Christmas


Ah, Friends! We’ve reached that point in the holiday season when the excitement of gift-giving wanes (& gift-card spending begins😂) and we switch gears to focus on the coming new year. Cue the confetti!

We hope those of you celebrating Christmas had a merry one, and we’re wishing those of you observing the last day of Hanukkah and/or the first day of Kwanzaa happy times as well.

In between now and that midnight countdown to 2023, we’ll be shopping post-holiday, after-Christmas, Boxing Day and end-of-year clearance sales. This is one of the last big hurrahs of all-around sale periods until we get to Memorial Day weekend, so it’s worth our time to scour the interwebs.

If you’re new to The Mom Edit, welcome! Our cheat sheets are where we highlight the best discounts at our favorite brands and retailers, and we hope that makes your online shopping experience much, much easier. Fashion, beauty and home are the sweet spot for us here at TME, so if that’s what you’re looking for, you’re in the right place. If you already know what you’re looking for, head on down by clicking the buttons below.

To check out any items you were browsing during the Black Friday sales, go to that cheat sheet here. For products you possibly hesitated over during Cyber Monday/Cyber Week, that cheat sheet is here. And to peruse our reviews and try-ons in more detail, head to our end-of-year sales page here

The Best End-Of-Year Clearance Sales To Shop After Christmas

Below is a rundown of the sales we’re expecting to see this week and our favorite items to buy from each. If you find out about a sale we’ve overlooked, please let us know in the comments. And if you need any belated holiday gifts or are still looking for holiday outfit ideas, click on over to Holiday Central, our one-stop-shop for celebratory style, gift guides and the best of the sales.

A few notes before you go: While the discounts may get deeper as the week continues, keep in mind that most products on sale are clearance items and, due to overstock issues related to the supply chain, retailers are looking to offload any oversupply they’re been sitting on. So, while it’s tempting to keep fingers crossed for lower prices, for the items that you really want and are still on your wishlist — don’t walk…run!

A Few Post-Holiday Shopping Notes From TME

Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale is always our first stop. The sale just started and we’re on it! Check out our editor’s guide to the best items on sale there

Next up, be sure to check out Weekly Sales Reports. Last week’s may still feature some good deals, and our next round drops on Friday.

The entire team has put together their personal faves on sale that they own and love — that article is a must-see.

We’ll also have more sale coverage as the week continues, so bookmark this page, and come back to The Mom Edit often.

The Best End-Of-Year Sales On Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

Our favorite category when it comes to sales. Obviously, we’re looking to Nordstrom for its Half-Yearly Sale to pick up some of our faves (we can’t resist deals on jeans). Beyond that, after-Christmas sales provide the best opportunity to snap up those trendy items you might not have grabbed otherwise! Maybe Scotti’s sparkly boots from Sam Edelman (hello, NYE outfit!!) or Anthropologie’s wide-leg trousers to get out of your comfort zone.

The Best End-Of-Year Sales On Skincare, Makeup & Hair Products

Ahh, skincare… So relaxing. A good skincare routine really makes us all feel like we have our lives together (even on those days we might not). Now is a great time to stock up on those must-have, “use it every morning and night” products. Em’s loving that Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Moisturizer (it’s so good, it has her ditching her regular makeup!). In the hair category, the Shark HyperAir blow dryer is winning the curly-hair game. Oorrrr…this volumizing hot brush from ghd (a team fave)

The Best End-Of-Year Sales On Home Decor, Kitchen Appliances & Tech

Nordstrom Rack may be famous for the shoes, but I'm quietly passionate about the home & beauty finds. So here are 6 gifts I'm giving this year -- tightly curated, as always.

If you’re looking for stuff to spruce up/smart up your home? The Ember temperature-control mug is an ingenious little device, and some of us take it everywhere. But you really can’t go wrong with a nice linen bedding set from Parachute (that burgundy color, tho…). And if you’ve been around here for a while, you probably know we love Dyson vacuums, and the best time to get those is during a sale, of course.
