Did you know that you can put your Christmas ornaments on lay-away at Hallmark? I didn't know it until yesterday. This past weekend was the big Ornament Premier at Hallmark stores. Since I'm in such a Christmasy* mood right now, of course I attended.
I usually purchase several ornaments for our family Christmas tree every year. But since I can never afford to buy them all at the same time, and don't want to put them on credit, I usually pick up a couple here and a few there. When I mentioned this to the sales lady, she told me about the lay-away program. So, I loaded up my bag, and put all but one ornament on layaway.
I was also able to order the ornaments that I want that aren't being released until October and November. Now, when they come in, my ornaments will be set aside for me before the shelves get stocked.
Shopping for Christmas ornaments this year was almost too easy!
*Yes, that is a made up word. You got a problem with that?
