Is it just me, or are you getting the feeling that retailers are pushing summer out? Summer’s not over…but it’s definitely on sale! It appears that everything is on sale! The stores promoting summer seasonal items are practically giving them away. Get more bang for your buck. Be smart. It’s a great opportunity to purchase summer clothing, outdoor furniture, barbecue accessories, or summer anything for next year.
It’s also a perfect time to assess your inventory. Think ahead and pay attention to the things you are currently using that you know are on their last leg. Take the time to replace, repair, or toss the broken or unwanted stuff at the end of this summer. I know it’s easier to just shove the broken beach chair into the shed or garage and deal with it next year, but do yourself a favor, and act on it now. No need to hold onto the leaky garden hose, deflated pool floats, cracked pails and shovels, broken umbrellas, or moldy coolers.
Fall clothes will soon to be dominating retail stores, so bathing suits and summer clothes are super inexpensive. It’s a great opportunity to organize for next summer. Why not take advantage now? Buy new basics and save them for next summer. Be ready. Be organized.
There is nothing as sweet as being ready and prepared for summer fun! Oh, and that old rusty sand chair? Let it go, it’s done. It owes you nothing. It well served its purpose. Be ready for the first blazing beach day next year, and avoid that last minute trip to the store when you realize the old one’s broken. You’ll be so happy you did! You can also enjoy wearing something brand new at the start of the season at half the price!
