At the store where I work we currently have available Halloween candy, X-Mas decorations, New Years party favors, Valentines Day cards, Easter eggs and St. Patrick’s Day clothing. It’s creeping ever closer to an all-year thing.
New accounting and tax software usually starts showing up in Sept. I wait until January for my tax software to see who gives the best deal.
Husband is confused that January (which used to be known for linen sales, known as white sales as linens were all white back then so you could boil them if you had bed bugs, as well as see the bed bugs) is now known for organizing supplies and furniture. I can’t figure out the furniture unless you are using your Christmas gift money to buy it. Organizing makes sense as people have made resolutions to organize and try to organize for tax season (as well as January back to college). Walmart suddenly starts putting out LARGE plastic storage boxes individually instead of stacked together to take up more shelf space.
