It’s hard to beat Wal-Mart for holiday supplies, says Perez. “I bake goodies for friends and neighbors during the holidays, and I like to pick up inexpensive plates from Wal-Mart. Last year, I bought red and green metallic chargers that people actually brought back to me, assuming they were high-quality plates that I wanted returned! They cost me $1 each.” DailyFinance.com also found Wal-Mart to have the best deals, says Caldwell. The site sent a team of experts out to purchase holiday décor from Kmart, Wal-Mart and Target. Their shopping list included a tree, lights, ornaments, tinsel/garland, a star, stockings, stocking hangers and a wreath. They spent $182.99 at Target, $172.86 at Kmart and $150.74 at Wal-Mart. But prices on individual items at Wal-Mart were not always cheapest. Wal-Mart’s wreath cost the most at $40.07; Target’s cost $25 and Kmart’s cost $18. But Wal-Mart has the ad match guarantee, so bring this information with you to get the wreath for under $18.
