#KmartBTS Blogger Event









Last week I attended #KmartBTS Blogger Event at Mastros Restaurant, Downtown Chicago.

They shared information on their layaway program and was willing to have an open dialogue with bloggers of any comments and concerns about Kmart.  We put the kids Christmas gifts on layaway last Christmas, but I dropped the ball for back to school clothes 🙁

Speaking of layaway….Kmart allows you to put clothes on layaway online and pick them up in another state.  So sweet for college students!  Why travel on the road looking like the Beverly Hillbillies when you can pick up the items you need when you arrive.


Since many schools require uniforms, kids accessorize with glitz and glamour when it comes to school supplies and accessories.

hors d’oeuvres and cocktails were served


Makeup artist were there to do our make-up. Would you believe I had my make-up done?


They had signs which I thought were the cutest for us to use when we took some photo shots.  I’m not sure what sign would have actually been perfect for me.  I think “Best Smile” was appropriate for this pic.

Me with Laila and Natasha.  “Basketball Mom” wasn’t available so I went with “Soccer Mom”, close enough.

We had an absolutely great time chatting with each other and learning as well as being reminded of Kmarts layaway plan and school uniforms. I think I’m ready to put Christmas gifts on layaway 🙂

Are you a fan of the layaway plan and did you use it for back to school clothes this year?


I was invited to the Kmart Back to School event.  We received a parting gift however, no monetary compensation was received and all opinions are my own.
