I noticed today that some people were already shopping for Halloween candy and decorations even though there is still quite a bit of time before the actual day of the event. Not only that, but some places were even starting to sell/display Christmas items already. Of course, they wouldnâ€™t do that if people werenâ€™t actually buying them already and so obviously there are enough people that do so to justify it.
Some people have told me before that they do that as it relieves a lot of headaches in trying to fight the crowds in trying to do it later while at the same time they found the prices of a lot of items to be cheaper as a lot of places inflate their prices to take advantage of the buying frenzy crowd.
I havenâ€™t ever specifically shopped for an occasion way ahead of the actual date that it takes place in. The closest thing would be if I just accidentally stumbled on something that was a great deal and I thought it would be a great gift for someone else then I would purchase it with the intent of giving it away in the future as I know say the personâ€™s birthday is coming up anyways. I would think though that you can actually save more money at times by shopping in dates closer to the actual holiday as businesses are trying to outdo one another in terms of price and value for various products.
