A lot of people live by the shopping seasons. They know it is bathing suit time when they see the new ones hanging on the racks at Target, they know it is back to school soon when the paper products move to the front of Wal Mart, they know it's fall when the Halloween candy takes it's place. They know it's Christmas when the stores are closed. It's a life, I suppose, but not my life. I work through the 'Hallmark' holidays and the legal holidays. I make too much money on Monday to take off practically once a month!
I got a couple cases of jars (lids and bands) as I had just taken a load to one of my sons, and we will need more. People who get canned goods at Christmas keep the jars, it's part of the gift that keeps giving! So, we will need more.
The seasons are changing, so look out for those end of summer sales that serve the prepper. The garden departments are closing down. Seeds at farm supply stores are ready to go into the freezer for future use. Big Lots is closing out their solar garden lights. The best repair kit for all of your garden tools are on sale in garden departments across the country. Get your weed eater cord, garden hand tools, irrigation repair pieces and even replace some of your tools, now if you need to. This is the time to look at those big ticket items again, when the ticket price is lower. And, if you have all you need, remember, two is better than one. You still have a couple of weeks before it is all replaced with costumes, candy and Christmas trees.
