If you're feeling kind of bummed out that Christmas is over, cheer up, because there's something else to get really excited about (and no, I'm not talking about New Year's): end-of-year sales. Whether you want to actually hit the mall and shop in person, or prefer the lazier route of shopping online in your PJs, I'll give you a rundown of the best year-end sales to add to your list.
The post-holiday sales are amazing, and might even be better than Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Not only is everything marked down in a major way, but you've also probably been gifted some cash for Christmas (or maybe have presents you want to exchange), and there's really no better time to get the most for your money than a blow-out sale, right? Though most fashion/beauty retailers are offering sales of some sort, the items on sale, how much of a discount you get, and additional special offers vary from store to store, so before deciding which sale you want to hit, it's probably a good idea to do some research and find out the best deals.
Here are 11 of the best end-of-year sales that are totally worthy of your holiday gift money.
