We went to Target yesterday. Yes the day AFTER Christmas. And yes, it was busy! And I just have to mention what I saw. People buying lot of Christmas colored bins.
Do you know what I think when I see that? You don't need more bins. You need less stuff!! I'm sure new holiday items were purchased during the season, thus the idea of needing more bins. However, I really wonder how much they had before that they could let go of?
I also feel really sad when I see everyone at the store buying up more. Yes, I bought stuff. A bag of chips and mousse for my hair. Nothing that isn't going to get used up eventually. And I did look at ornaments. I usually buy a new one each year for each of my daughter's, but I failed to get that done before Christmas! Turns out they were really picked over and I didn't buy. My buying was thus very minimal.
I know there are many reasons for buying Christmas goods after the season. Great prices, especially if it is truly a need. And I do understand there good reasons to buy more bins at times, too. I'm just sharing what my initial thoughts are when I see all the buying of stuff after the holiday.
Did you go shopping after Christmas? What did you buy? Or why didn't you go?
