Back to School Season

The morning weather has hints toward the fall season, so it comes as no surprise that the stores greet customers with back-to-school sales.  Last weekend, Virginia offered tax-free sales.  I’m sure the savings continue this weekend, with pencils, glue, crayons, an index cards for spare change. While Target and Walmart organize their seasonal sections for this August rush, The Container Store simply opens its doors to the soon-to-be college freshman and family. On this first trip to the organizational mecca, I was mesmerized by the rows of plastic bins, flanking displays of desks and bookshelves, and unique utensils and supplies for the kitchen that no on will have or use that first year.  Appropriately, they place the trash cans in the prime retail real estate when you walk in the door, implying that if anything is essential for this time of year it’s that one item.
