Remember when stores stowed away the Halloween candy before hauling out the mistletoe? Those days are long gone. Christmas decorations are already popping up in some stores, and Kmart has even put out a commercial for its holiday layaway program.
Some may say it's way too early for animatronic Santas with their creepy robotic ho-ho-hos, but is it ever too early to shop? Come on, we know you're out there -- you people who take advantage of Fourth of July and Labor Day sales to get your shopping out of the way so you avoid the madness at the malls in December. The back of your closet is already filled with boxes, and you haven't even put away those white Bermuda shorts you know you can't wear after Labor Day. We want to hear from you! Tell us why you get your shopping done so early, and how you get the best deals!
