"I'm not ready for back to school sales yet," groans my girlfriend Melissa, who just got into a summer groove with her kids. "Ignore them," I say, but we both know that's impossible.
Summer clearances are happening; most items we were clambering for in May are marked down to at least half price. July is the time to buy outdoor furniture, and the best time to price out vacation cruises, should you be looking to sail. But not only is the end of summer teasing us, so is Christmas. Christmas in July festivities are happening, especially in craft stores. My advice to "ignore them" is carried over, however we both know that too, is impossible.
*Right now SHE could be in the middle of summer looking at back to school advertisements and trying to balance the family budget.
