If you are thinking about using The Elf on the Shelf  next year let me be sure to tell you- it’s NOT going to be on clearance on the 26th. Or any day after.
It is incredibly rare to find it on sale without using a coupon.
Right now on Amazon you can get the The Elf on the Shelf A Christmas Tradition with Blue Eyed North Pole  shipped for only $23.
This company is located overseas so it will take about a month to arrive- which is probably why they have discounted it.
Be sure to double check the price before you buy- Amazon prices change quickly.
