Post-holiday depression is a real thing, but so are after-Christmas sales. Luckily the two dovetail together so beautifully you’d swear they were made for each other (ahem, retail therapy)!

If you have gift cards or Christmas money to spend today, there are tons of terrific deals to take advantage of. Here’s a quick roundup that should come in handy when it comes to where to start.

Amazon’s Year End Deals are in full swing and offer everything from espresso makers for 50 percent off to wine that ships for a penny. The Echo Dot is also back in stock at $49 and a really cheap way to make your life easier!

Target has slashed all its clearance to 50% off, which is terrific for lots of items but really great for the shrewd shopper that likes to buy ultra-cheap Christmas stuff for next year. You can also get an extra 20 percent off on top of the 50 percent by using the Cartwheel app.

Best Buy has also marked clearance and open-box items to 50 percent off both online and in store. You can get an extra 20 percent off open box appliances as well!
