It’s October, which usually means Halloween time, but now it means it’s almost Christmas. I see so many people complaining on Facebook and Twitter about stores putting Christmas items on the shelves too early, but why would you complain about that?
You can never be too prepared for Christmas, in my opinion. It always comes so fast and there is always something you forget, so why not start early and be extra prepared! Not to mention all the delicious seasonal food that you get for and extra two months when stores have it out super early.
I was in Kmart a few days ago and they were just putting out all of their Christmas items and I was in heaven. I only bought two things because they didn’t have everything out yet, but what I got I absolutely LOVE.
I got the wooden noel blocks (in the picture above) that I will put above the fireplace and a gold sack that I want to fill with pine cones or something else festive. The gold sacks can be used all year round. You can use them as plant pots, fruit bowls or just for storage in general.
There are a few more things I want to get from Kmart, I’m just hoping that next time I’m there they have more in stock.
I also went to Target because I saw a friend post that they have started putting out all of their decorations. I’ve known my Christmas theme for months and started buying little things months ago. I have a board on my Pinterest if you want to see the theme I want.
At Target they have the most beautiful decorations. I got all my decorations there last year and I’ll reuse a few of those for this year, but there are a few new ones that I wanted to get.
These are a few of the decorations that I bought. There are three others, but they don’t have them listed on the Target website.
We are still looking around for a new tree, because the pictures on the websites are never what the tree looks like in real life. I’m not going to pay $80 for a balding tree. I want it to be perfect!
Do you love that stores have Christmas items out early or are you one of those people that hates it? Are you already super prepared for Christmas, or are you a last minute kind of person?
