Ready for the Holidays? Start Now with Kmart Layaway

This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own. #ad #KmartLayaway

You can’t deny it; everywhere you look there is evidence of the holiday season. From Christmas displays to center aisles loaded with the latest toys and photos of turkeys and recipe ideas everywhere, I have to admit that it is time to start shopping. @Kmart just might be able to help.

Although I don't like to start thinking about gifts and the holidays until after Thanksgiving, there are a few holiday ‘musts’ that you need to start sooner rather than later. I am not a fan of the shopping crowds! Like putting my big (or small) purchases on Layaway. Since most Layaway contracts are eight weeks long, this is the ideal time to shop now and pay over time. No one wants wallet shock on November 29th, right?

Didn't think so. Still need convincing? Here are a few ‘Layaway Lessons’ to keep in mind:

1.) The cat ate your Christmas tree. OK, so even if you don’t have a cat but last year’s Christmas tree was on its last limb and this is the year you need a new one. On the other hand, maybe you just got a cat and the days of having a real tree are over. Either way, you need some new decorating digs. Pick up a pre-lit tree (because that’s the way to go), LED lights, wreaths and village houses now and pay them off in time for decking those halls!

2.) Your gift list has grown. Maybe you've found a new group of friends, entered into a new family or you’re just feeling extra generous this year. Long gift lists call for Layaway. Fill that cart to the brim and roll it over to the Layaway counter. Your pals won’t know you paid their gifts off over time.

3.) Money is tight this year. It’s not just you; many of us are watching our spending. If you’re having trouble staying afloat while keeping those bills paid, Layaway is a must. Not only will you avoid ‘wallet shock,’ you’ll keep your pre-holiday peace of mind.

Whether you plan to do a little... or a lot of shopping this year, you can Layaway almost everything on your list without paying a service fee through 11/23. You can also choose to pay in store, online or using your mobile phone. Eight or 12 weeks later (depending on your contract) you can pick up your items and you're good to go!

Now that you've figured out how easy #KmartLayaway is, you can use it all year round at Kmart.
