Christmas in July


Christmas in July!

Is it too hot to be thinking about Christmas?

Target, Sears, and Toys R Us are having “Christmas in July” Sales this week.

Target will have 500 items on sale tomorrow, July 23rd starting at 3 am ET. The sale is online only and is called the Back in Black Friday sale. There is a preview on their website available now.

Sears.com and Kmart.com have a Christmas Lane department on their sites featuring Christmas decorations. Christmas Lane is supposed to be open for the whole month of July. Ornaments are 20% off at Sears and 30 % off at Kmart and they both offer free shipping on all orders over $39 for the week of July 18 - July 25th only. Kmart has layaway. Sears will be displaying Christmas items and playing Christmas music in some of their stores until July 25th.

Toys R Us has a Christmas in July sale too. They offer free shipping on purchases of $49 or more. Some Toys R Us Stores are having a similar sale. Check their website to see if the store in your area is participating but the sale ends July 24th. Games, toys, and action figures are at their lowest prices of the year.

I am also having a Christmas in July sale in my eBay store. I am happy to learn that I am not the only one. There are many other Christmas in July sales occurring on eBay.

When my children were young, I shopped year round for their gifts. July and August were always good months to find clearance items.
Can you remember how short and busy the Christmas season is? Shopping in July would be a good way to get a jump start on the season and to spread out the expenses.
