Let me start by saying that I absolutely love Christmas. For me Christmas is all about family. Whether it's watching your favorite Christmas movie on the couch with your family or getting together for a delicious feast. Christmas is not all about the gifts but let be honest who doesn't love seeing the happy faces on their little ones face when they open up the thing they've wanted all year or your mom's face when she opens up the DIY best grandma ever sign you spent hours making.
I personally suck at saving and tend to over spend around Christmas. Layaway is the perfect way to keep be from doing those things. Its also a major time saver to be able to go in the store once and get all of your holiday shopping done in one shot.
Burlington Coat Factory
Before having Keigan I was all about Kmart layaway. I would go crazy and get everyone's Christmas presents at once. It was honestly so easy plus I was working full time and had the extra income. Naturally i went to Kmart once I had Keigan to so his layaway because it was what I was used to but I just wasn't feeling the baby clothes selection there. Honestly as a parent Christmas is the perfect time to stock up on a new wardrobe for your little.
So now brings me to Burlington Coat Factory my personal favorite. They let you put anything on layaway from clothes to toys to home goods. My plan was to one stop shop all of Keigans gifts at Burlington this year but Hubby insisted Keigan needed a bike so instead we threw a bunch of clothes on layaway for him.
Walmart is probably my least favorite because of how restrictive the items are. Its great when you're buying something big like say a tv or computer. That being said we did use it for 4 in 1 Stroll Trike we got Keigan. I've also used it in the past for a television and Keurig.
All in all it truly depends on your family's needs as to which Layaway works best for you. There are also other stores that do layaway but these are the only ones I have personally used.
I'm Ashley a stay at home mom to my sweet boy Keigan and married to the love of my life Brandon. When I'm not blogging you can catch me chasing keigan around, scrapbooking or snuggling on the couch with hubby.
