Yes, I know it is 11 months and 11 days away, but there are some things you can start buying from now in preparation for Carnival 2009 instead of waiting for the very last minute!!
BOOTS – lots of stores are having sale and clearance sales on winter wear as Spring approaches; if you are looking for discounted prices on boots now is the time to buy them! This then gives you an entire year to break them in properly.
CLOTHING– Scour any website and you will see lots of "summery" clothing items, from shorts to tank tops to dresses, all on sale. I know some ladies have already started shopping , believe it or not, for Carnival 2009! They are getting shorts, tops and dresses which can do quadruple duty for spring, summer and upcoming international as well.
TICKET – Only a few more weeks until you can book a ticket to
Trinidadfor February 2009, right now you can only book up until February 5th so keep looking at the websites and saving your pennies!
GYM MEMBERSHIP - Procrastination, we are all guilty of it. I am thinking if you have the gym membership in hand from now, chances are within the next 11 months you are going to use at some point in time!
Feel free to add to the list all the things that YOU think it is not too early to get in preparation for Carnival 2009.
