There used to be a way of life where we paid cash for everything, credit didn't exist and the use of layaway was a noble idea. My husband and I are now only purchasing what we have the money to buy so we're on a cash system and now I see the value of layaway. You pick out what you want and you pay on it as you can. And K-mart is supporting the nobel idea of layaway by hainvg Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway. Every week at every store one layaway item will be given away. WHAT???
With the free layaway program at Kmart you won't miss out on the items you want to purchase for your family. I remember years ago when The Tickle Me Elmo came out and they didn't make enough of them. When it came to Christmas time they were no where to be found and while I was working at a retails store they would be out of stock as soon as they came in the store. So if you didn't have the money to get one when they first came out then you missed out. So being able to get your holiday gifts early will be a big help with the hot toys and items of the season.
I would love to get a brand new camera lens or new camera and I don't have the money for it right now so putting it on lawaway at Kmart would be a great option for me, that or a brand spanking new Canon camera.
