Back to school already?

Back to school already?

Is it me or, has anyone seen advertising for back to school already?
It’s still June, right???
Office Depot has already started to run ad’s for back to school specials. They’re giving 20% Off during their sale, but I know you’ll be able to find better deals going forward.
The only issue at times is that things run out of stock. I think I’d wait until after July 4th to start to browse the stores as to what the best deals are going to be for this school year.
Right after the clearance sale that most stores have right after the 4th of July is when you start to see things really hit the shelves for back to school. I personally look at shopping at the local stores first. You’d be surprised as to what kind of deals you can find at your locally owned stores! After searching the local stores is when I’ll look at the Kmart’s
Trust me… I do shop online, but I also know from the past where I can get the deals, and a, Targets, Fred Meyers etc… The last resort is online store. You tend to pay more if you shop online for these item versus the brick and mortar stores. One in a while you may find a deal, but school supplies are tough to beat with prices when you shop locally. I believe in shopping locally first, and after that I’ll go online. Online is convenient, but locally is where you’ll find the best deals when it comes to the back to school type items.
BTW… Back to school in June already? Please Office Depot! Let’s first enjoy some summer with the family before we need to flood our brains with back to school!
I also need to work on my tan. How can I go shopping when I look like a pasty ghost?
