Tuesday's Rant: Rushing from season to season

On Tuesdays I sometimes take the opportunity to rant about something I do not like about Target… because although I love ‘em to death, they ain’t perfect.  Now I've ranted about this before: retailers - Target in particular - rushing thru the seasons.  The last time I ranted about this, it was early July 2010, when I lamented that my local Target store was already phasing out swimsuits in favor of wooly wraps.  Now it's gotten even more out of hand: on June 2nd, I saw an entire rack of heavy cable knit sweater leggings by Mossimo in the Juniors' section neatly hanging near the swimsuits. I didn't have my camera phone with me at the time to snap a pic, but I found this stock photo online from similar Target leggings from 2011 (shown here). Now I realize that before we know it, Target will be stocking back-to-school stuff.  But sweater leggings at the start of June is a bit extreme, IMO.

Yes, they have been naughty haven't they?! I always notice spring things popping up when I'm shopping for Christmas items! That makes me mad!!! It seems like the swim suits are perpetually by the front of the store, probably because of the cruise wear line and then summer. Still annoying!
