Christmas may be over but New Year is just around the corner and the second phase of large-scale holiday shopping is only just beginning.

The day after Christmas is usually (and perhaps surprisingly) one of the biggest shopping days of the year. It is the day when all leading retailers stay open; despite the fact it is a federal holiday in the U.S., for Christmas and clearance sales. While the deals probably don't bear comparison to those on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are still some great products available at considerable discounts.

Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy and Bloomingdale's are some of the major retailers and the biggest names in holiday shopping.

This year, discounts are available on electronics, household appliances, apparels, outdoor equipment and gadgets...
