Really?? Christmas decorations are out. I was shopping the other day and down one aisle I came across Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations. I swear, every year it is getting earlier and earlier that retailers are getting a jump start on the holidays.
Seeing those Christmas decorations got me thinking. Is it too early to start shopping? I know. I said it. But now that Anthony is going to school longer, I will have some more time on my hands. It would be great to be able to shop without the distraction of kids!
On a trip to Kmart last week I was eyeing up some holiday gifts. My kids have been asking for this for so long…..
And I think this will be on MY list this year…..
Sadly, things are so expensive and everyone is on a budget these days. I just happened to see a sign in the store for free layaway. Yes….that is the key! I can pick up all of the items on my shopping list and pay for them over time. From 9/9 through 11/17 they are waiving the $5 Service fee for an 8 week contract (or the $10 fee for the 12 week contract if you make a purchase over $300). And I actually like that you have to make bi-weekly payments. It helps you to budget over time.
I am noticing that a lot of other retailers are offering layaway for the Holidays too. But places like Walmart have service fees and require a minimum amount for the total transaction as well as a minimum amount per item. No thanks, I will take the free option that Kmart is offering…lol!
Now, here is he exciting news. I learned that Kmart's is prepping for the season of giving and to coincide with this time they are launching the Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway. Meaning there is one layaway giveaway per store per week every week from 9/9/12 through 11/17/12.
So, now's the time to place those gifts you've been eying on layaway and also get the chance to win some great prizes at Kmart!
(NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Ends 11/17/12. For Official Rules, visit a participating Kmart location or www.kmart.com/layawaygiveaway.)
