It’s July the 13th for Goodness Sake!

Warning! This is not a post about Friday the 13th. I am about to vent.

It is not even the middle of July! I do not care to think about school starting at this point in the summer. I also do not care to think about or see fall decorations. And yet, as I go to Wally World and Pat Catans, and as I see store flyers in the mail all I see are ads for back to school sales and fall decor. It makes me want to scream!!!!! Yes, that did deserve 5 exclamation points. Why can’t our kids just enjoy their summer vacations without being bombarded by school stuff when they walk into stores.  The summers already fly by way to fast. And as much as I love fall, I don’t want to be reminded of it in July. It is all a marketing ploy to get more money. But they will not be getting my money until about a week before school starts. If they are lucky, maybe 2 weeks before school starts. Not that little old me will make a difference by waiting until closer to the start of school to by supplies, but that is my way of protesting.

Does anyone else feel the same? Or am I being ridiculous? Please share!

    I can’t stand it either, and I don’t even have school aged kids yet. It is like this year around. As soon as school starts everyone will be getting out the Halloween decorations. I waited until May to get a swimsuit for my daughter and everyone was nearly sold out. I was lucky to find something in her size. I bet they try to entice you to buy early in the hopes that you buy again later (during the appropriate season). It is out of control.

    I agree. They want you to buy and buy and then buy again. Time goes so fast already, why rush it?
