Friday, December 23

to Kmart I go at 6 o'clock in the morning ( : (Giveaway)



Kip took the day off from work today. We are all taking off to Legoland for a day of fun. I can't think of anything better right now than hanging out with my family all day, and seeing the kids faces filled with excitement.


I am still not finished with Christmas shopping...truth is, not really stressed about it either. I'm enjoying the season, the music, the decorations, the food, the love, friends, my family.

And somehow, shopping always gets done. Doesn't it? Are you starting to get stressed? Don't. We don't ever remember the gifts, we remember where we were, who was there, what we did, and how we felt.

I will probably get the rest of my shopping done early tomorrow morning. Hoping to wake up early and beat the crowds. Don't you just love stores that have extended hours???

Kmart sent me a gift card to help me finish my holiday shopping and also let me know they open really early at most stores (six am)....they must have known my last minute shopping plans. ( : So thankful for this. Been a shopper of Sears for years (remember going there with my mom as a child) and can't tell you how much I love their children's clothes!

GIVEAWAY

They also sent me a  $100 Kmart/Sears gift card to giveaway to one of you...they want you to feel special, no stress and know that they have extended their hours specially for people like us who are not only shopping but enjoying their families as well. Both Sear and Kmart have tons of stuff, and that right gift for that special someone.

Leave me any topic related comment on this post....tell me if you are done with your shopping. Who you still need to buy for? I will pick one winner on January 1, 2012 (that felt weird...writing the new year) at 11:59pm. US only. Make sure you leave your email if it's not already on your profile so I can contact you. Good luck!

*update: Congrats to Danielle (the Knapps), the winner of the gift card!

I was a late Christmas shopper because my parents loaned me some money since I am currently unemployed due to a medical emergency. I would love to win the $100 K Mart GC.

I sadly still have a couple people (out of state) to finish getting gifts for. Extremely busy month, and so I'm trying to find those last couple items!

I managed to get all my holiday shopping down on time, though the fact that we all traveled half the country for our family gathering did restrict some gift choices.

Hello, of course I'm done with my Christmas shopping since it is now New Years day. But, I was shopping 2 days after Christmas on our way to see the inlaws. Got some great deals. It is sad to here that some of the Sears and Kmart stores will be closing. I hope not in my area. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Michelle Hagewood said...

I haven't shopped at KMart in forever since ours closed years ago. We do have one that isn't too far away and I have to say that I miss it. I loved their variety and would love a reason to travel back up there!

I finished with all of my Christmas shopping on Dec 23rd. I actually made a trip to Kmart on Christmas Eve to get some snacks for Christmas Day, and they were pretty much the only place open that evening besides Walgreens.

I got all of my X-mas shopping done a week before Christmas and I managed to get my Christmas Cards out too.

I got my Christmas shopping done on time thanks to the wonders of shopping online. I love amazon prime and I think it's definitely worth it to pay one fee for a whole year of free shipping and no worries!

Angel Jacklyn said...

I love the whole Christmas Eve shopping experience. I love rush of last minute gift shopping and the crowds. It is over so fast each year. I did get done early so I won't be in the mist of the panic either way and I will miss that this year.

I was done shopping a week or so before Christmas, which was nice since I usually have at least one present I need to get at the last possible second.

Sears has yet to fail me when I really need to find something. :)

I am having late family members that are coming to celebrate with us. It's especially fantastic because they are going to help fix up the garage. The walls are in desperate need of a cleaning and painting and the floor needs to be resurfaced before someone falls in a big crack in the floor and is never seen again.

Unknown said...

I finished all of my shopping (and wrapping) a few days before Christmas this year. Usually I am shopping right up until the last minute and wrapping all Christmas eve.

I was totally unprepared for christmas this year and had to scramble at the last minute to get a gift for my brother. Oops!

I started Christmas 3 weeks before Christmas and got my last gift at 10pm Christmas eve...which was weird because I'm usually very on top of things but we have less money to work with this year...but we made it work :) Our Christmas morning was filled with smiling faces:)

Hope you had a nice holiday as well.

We finished all of our shopping late - on Christmas Eve! 2011 was a rough year and the budget has been tight (and tighter when hubs was laid off in Dec.) so we had to plan for the last minute. We got it done though and everyone loved their gifts and we enjoyed time spent with family.

Christmas is now over. I had done about 90% of my shopping a couple months in advance. So, there wasn't much to get last minute, except a couple of gift cards.

I got my shopping done early this year, because I had to mail out a lot of gifts and wanted to get them there for Christmas. I did do some shopping at Kmart. They have reasonable prices, I think. This gift certificate would be nice to win. I could do some after Christmas shopping. Thanks for having this contest.

I do my shopping year round. I do a trip to the dollar store to find stocking stuffers.
And it's true that we best remember the people & the good times much more than the presents.

Storm Safety Blog said...

I did most of my Christmas shopping at the after-Christmas sales in 2010. At Christmas 2011, my extended family decided next year, only the children would get gifts. Since I don't have kids, I don't buy for other people's kids. So, I don't have to buy anything major for next year, yay! I would have liked to get a few more things for my husband, but he has his eye on some expensive woodshop equipment, so he said not to get him anything and save the money for that. I got him a couple of things anyway.
