This is a sponsored post, I am a Kmart Layaway blogger, though all opinions are my own.
When we were kids my sister and I made an art of finding our holiday gifts. There was no furniture unsearched, no attic left unexplored and no trunk left unopened. After a few years my parents began threatening to take everything back- moving it from hiding place to hiding place in an effort to surprise us on Christmas morning.
Then they discovered a magical solution that the stores provided- free layaway. The stores would hold our gifts on-site- somewhere that we could not search. Not only that but it allowed them to shop early thus guaranteeing they would have stock of the items we really wanted. It was the best of both worlds for two busy working professionals.
