Remember layaway? Our mothers sure loved it, didn’t they? They’d put things on “layaway” when we were kids, and we were never quite sure what it meant, until now. Actually, some of us still might not be sure what it is, so I’ll give you an overview.

Let’s say you’re in a store and you find that “perfect” Christmas gift for that special someone on your list. You don’t necessarily need it right now and you don’t feel like putting it on your credit card (or you don’t have one), so you put it on layaway. What that means is that the store will hold the item for you, while you make payments. Once the item is paid off, you take it home!

My mom learned the benefits of layaway the hard way. One year, we waited until the week before my brother and I were headed back to school and, wouldn’t you know it, the stores were all sold out of clothes in our size. (Well, they did have some clothes in our size, but they weren’t the kind my brother and I wanted, that’s for sure!) So, from that point forward, my mom would take us shopping for school clothes in June or July and put the clothes on layaway. She was happy, and so were we.

Like I mentioned earlier, it works well for Christmas gifts, too. Kmart has a free layaway program, and they’re actually giving away prizes each week through November 17. It’s called the “Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway,” and every week each store will choose one lucky winner to have their layaway balance PAID OFF. (For details, check out the Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway.) I'm really excited for Christmas shopping and have been eying a few things already at Kmart that would be great to put on layaway now for my daughter!

What’s especially nice about Kmart’s layaway program – and what sets it apart from places like Walmart, Best Buy and Toys R Us – is that they’ve recently announced a plan to remove fees from its layaway program through November 17, perfect for you holiday gifts this year! That’s right, free layaway and a chance to win some free stuff. It doesn’t get much better than that!

  1. i love kmarts layaway!

  2. Never used layaway before, but this seems like something that’s coming back.

  3. I’ve never used Layaway before, but I’m really tempted this year. I can see how beneficial it would be and plus, there is the option of the Giveaway!

  4. I love that Kmart does this. It helps families who cannot afford all the Christmas gifts in the month of December. You can plan which helps your budget.

  5. I used to always use layaway however Kmart doesn’t really have anything my teenager would want now. I have used it to buy rugs though.

  6. We don’t have a Kmart anymore and I really miss it!! They always had the best stuff for my nieces and nephews for Christmas and the layaway was always so easy!!

  7. I NEED a new computer, so I will be taking advantage of it!

  8. The layout plan there is awesome. Thanks for telling us about it

  9. This looks like a great plan and I liked the toys pictured above too! Off to stalk Kmart’s site for Christmas ideas for my daughter 🙂
