This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own.
I have a big family. With 4 kids and a hubby, plus my mom and 4 big brothers and their family, I have a lot of presents to buy during the holidays. Every year that my kids get older, they want big, and by that I mean more expensive, things. And I am a sucker for the holidays. I love to see lots of presents under the tree, and I like to see the “Oh my gosh” face when they open their presents. Almost nothing makes me happier.
Buying lots of presents, and buying the kind my kids want, also means a lot of money. There is no way that I could do it without layaway, because I do not use credit cards, been there, done that with the trouble they can cause. As I talk to people, they tell me that they have never used layaway. These people are starting to have layaway regret. What is “Layaway Regret” you ask? ‘Layaway Regret is described as the feeling the opposite of the common condition ‘buyer’s remorse.’ Many have experience symptoms of general discomfort, mental anguish and a longing feeling. The main cause of ‘Layaway Regret’ is excuses. Sound like you? Well, now there are no more excuses!
Excuse #1: I’ve never done Layaway before, it seems like too much effort.
Debunked: No Way! That is all in your head. At Kmart, Layaway is not hard work. It doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 100 items , you can Layaway just about everything on your list without paying a service fee through 11/23. You can pay in store, online and even using a mobile phone. Eight or 12 weeks later (depending on your contract) pick up your items and you’re good to go! Bonus: After you figure out how easy it is, you can Layaway all year round at Kmart!
Excuse #2: I don’t have time during the Holiday season to Layaway.
Debunked: Plan now with Layaway, get your holiday shopping done early, pay for it over time and have it just in time for gift giving! Go ahead and ask your family and friends what they want this year and start making your list. The sooner you Layaway, the better chance you have at getting the hottest toys and electronics locked away before everyone else. Bonus: You can relax over the holidays and avoid crazy lines!
Excuse #3: I’m not a ShopYourWay Member.
Debunked: That is no excuse. It takes very little time to sign up for ShopYourWay, only a few minutes really.You don’t need to be a ShopYourWay Rewards Member to use Kmart Layaway, but you will get MORE. Members earn points on every purchase that can be redeemed next time you shop (look for chances to get more points)! Members also have access to secret sales and extra discounts which helps you stay close to your holiday budget.

So what are you adding to your layaway list?
