Do you buy things at the start of a certain holiday or do you wait until the season is over and the items go on sale? For example do you buy decorations for Halloween or Christmas when they show up or after the season is over. You can get some really good deals if you wait. I usually wait and then store the stuff I want in a tote to take it out next year. The things I probably would not store up from sales or candy or any food item I wouldn't go as far as trying to give some Halloween candy from two Halloweens ago.
