Think the holiday season ends on Thursday? Think again. Sure, Hanukkah and Christmas festivities conclude tonight and tomorrow, respectively, but the Room & Board annual sale is Friday. On December 26th, you can save up to 50% off floor samples and discontinued items, including sofas, tables, storage pieces, rugs, outdoor and accessories. It's the brand's only sale of the year —and the crowds can get kind of nutty— so you might want to get there early. Doors open at 10 am, but lines in past years have started forming hours in advance. If this is the only thing you'll be able to think about for the next two days, you can start planning now with this guide to shopping the sale.
