I was shopping in Target this weekend and found two shocking occurrences in the store. (And, no, one of the shocking occurrences was not that I left the store with only one item. Let’s be realistic here.)
Summer items were on clearance, and back to school items were taking over a large part of the store.
It’s July. Barely mid-July. In Maine, summer has just begun. We’re just now getting used to regular warm weather and frequent visits to the beach.
Do you know what our winters are like? We endure those winters in order to live in Vacationland during the summer.
The last thing I want to see in July are binders and pencil boxes.
G’s backpack is used to bring swimming gear, sunscreen, a water bottle and lunch to summer camp.
Is it just me or is this back to school stuff early this year? It’s like seeing a giant blowup Santa in October.
Maybe I need to stay out of the stores for a while. I’m clearly not going to find any of my summer needs there.
