My son has really never made Christmas lists. Never written letters to Santa asking for tons of holiday gifts. He has been easy and simple when it comes to holiday shopping.
So what has possessed my son?
Two weeks ago he brings me a sheet of paper with a few items written on it, and says, “Here’s my Christmas wish list.” Uh? It’s barely September, and he has a “list” already!
Oh, this isn’t all for Christmas, he informs me. His birthday is November 25th, so some of the items on his wish list could be for his birthday. Well, how sweet of him? So from his reasoning, the list isn’t long, since it covers both his birthday and Christmas. Ha ha.
In all fairness, most things on the list aren’t big items. Except one… He wants the new Wii U Gaming System. It’s not available until November 18, 2012, but I can pre-order it, and I don’t necessarily need all the cash on pre-order day to pay for it.
I can use Kmart’s free layaway service, and reserve it, and still have it in time for Christmas! I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of layaway programs. They usually charged huge service fees, and were more of a hassle than they were worth to me. Kmart’s layaway program is different.
And when you use their layaway service, you can also be entered in the Kmart’s Big Layaway Giveaway!
Kmart is generously selecting one layaway from each store, every week from now through 11/17, where they will pay off the remaining balance of that lucky winner’s layaway! How nice it would be to have your Christmas layaway paid off. I know I’d love it! I’d also be equally as happy to hear one of YOU, my Blog by Donna readers, was a winner and got your layaway balance paid off!
So for the first time in years… okay, maybe ever, I’m trying to get an early start on my Christmas shopping, thanks to Kmart’s easy free layaway program. How are you preparing for your holiday shopping this year?
