Now that you're done shopping for all your friends and family, it's time to blow whatever cash you have left on yourself. Yes, it's that time of year again—the glorious few days between the holidays otherwise known as the time for after-Christmas sales. After the jump, we've detailed the specifics of the markdowns at all the major department stores: Barneys, Bergdorf, Bloomingdales, etc. Click through for seven major sales, or better yet, your game plan for the next few hours.

Saks: The after-Christmas sale at Saks is arguably the wildest of them all. Before noon, sale merchandise was an additional 50% off, bringing the total savings to 70% off. The additional discount dropped to 40% off after that; here's a look at what's up for grabs in the women's department.

Barneys: Fall clothing, shoes, and accessories are marked down up to 60% off. Prices will naturally be the lowest at the Co-op, but the designer floors will have steep deals as well. Peruse the selection for both here.

Bergdorf Goodman: And just like Barneys, the markdowns at Bergdorf are also up to 60% off. That applies to the women's and men's collections, and the shoe and accessories department also boast unspecified "savings." Here's the rundown for each department.

Bloomingdale's: The post-holiday discounts at Bloomingdale's are no joke. At their sale, you can save up to 75% off women's and men's clothing, accessories, shoes, and fine jewelry. Start your wishlist here.

Henri Bendel: The winter sale at Henri Bendel is broken down into three tiers: 50% off, 40% off, and 30% off. In comparison, the bargains aren't exactly mindblowing, but they are enough to take the edge off.

Lord & Taylor: The sale over at Lord & Taylor is a little dizzying, since different categories get different markdowns. Fall coats are 60% off, women's and men's sale sportswear is an additional 50% off, and handbags are 60% off. For the complete breakdown, head to the store's website.

Macy's: And the same goes for Macy's. The two-day specials end on the 27th, and include deals on everything from women's clothing to home goods. There are also a lot of random little side-sales happening, like 30% off lingerie (apparently their biggest sale in that department of the season) and $10 off denim.
