Sears gave me a great opportunity to work with them through some sponsored posts for the Holidays. Sears has been one of my favorite department stores since as long as I needed clothing. I don’t often post about clothing, shopping, life or anything like that. I find myself boring in that aspect. So when I was contacted to be a part of a Sears campaign, I was more than thrilled. It gives me a way to switch up my posts a bit more and show another aspect of my life…It’s also humorous because Tim buys all his tools (for fixing cars, the things I break, etc.) at Sears so he was more than thrilled too. It’s the only department store he will go too (mostly because I say go get a new shirt…and he spends 5 minutes in the shirt section and 55 in the tools section).
So long story short, I think Sears are a great company and I enjoy what they stand behind. It’s a big reason I jumped on board with this campaign. Between now and January, I will be doing a few sponsored posts with Sears. Sears gave me a lot of different options and methods to help promote them but I chose topics that related to me. One aspect that is important to me is to stay relevant to my life. If I wouldn’t or have never used a product, I’m not going to post about it. It doesn’t make sense.
Sears Brings More To You
While looking through the videos they sent me, this video inspired me (inspired and motivated me to get going on more wedding things).
It’s not a secret that Tim and I are getting married next Spring. I’ve done a few updates on the wedding but I do owe another one soon.
One thing we have been working on is creating a wedding registry. We had various ideas of where we wanted to create a wedding registry and one of these places was already Sears. Tim purchases a lot of tools from Sears to work on his car. We joke but his “man cave” is the garage. We have a two car garage…but neither are for my car.
I purchase a lot from Sears for our house as well as clothing in general. It seemed like a no brainer to go to Sears and actually set up a wedding registry. Since we have lived together for over a year now, we do have a lot of things for our house. It’s a lot harder to figure out things we want and need.
My research beforehand was “how to create a wedding registry”. In about five minutes I figured out what I needed to and we left. It’s supposed to be fun right?
Anyways we headed to the Sears down the road to create our registry. One thing I like about Sears is there are a lot and they are easily accessible. Pretty much anyone from around the country can go look at our wedding registry. It’s so easy for everyone involved.
The employees at Sears were very friendly and helpful. They basically walked us through the entire process so that we “couldn’t” mess up.
After they set us loose we walked around Sears for about an hour looking at things we liked.
Including this hot kiss pillow…well maybe just me.
So another aspect of our wedding is done (probably not the most important) but one of the most fun. Who doesn’t like shopping? Sears has such a great variety of things from appliances, to coffee mugs, tables and furniture to tools.
We chose to make a wedding registry at Sears and Sears compensated me for this post. All thoughts and opinions are LOLZ.
Questions for you:
Which Stores did you do a Wedding Registry at? What products did you add?
What is one of your favorite products at Sears?
I kind of hate shopping, so I just registered online for everything. And then, my husband and I were combining two households, so we didn’t need a lot, and it was hard to find things to register for! But I do find that people like being able to pick an item, so we came up with some stuff.
I have a soft spot in my heart for Sears. I worked there while I was in grad school and sold jewelry. It helped me get my first big girl job.
Awe that is so awesome to hear Lara!
Holliiiiee! I needed this! We are considering doing this soon, and I have heard so many horror stories about it!! I am glad to hear it was not as painful as you thought, especially with Sears 🙂 Thanks for this, I feel a lot better about it now 🙂
I thought it was the least stressful part of wedding planning…then again I haven’t been stressed yet…good luck Tina.
We registered with Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Target was beyond horrible. I figured it would be a good one since they have everything but the machine kept “losing” our items. Ugh. Wedding registries are great though, I like knowing what to buy people or either where to get them a gift card for.
I haven’t shopped at Sears in a long time. The one at Northwoods is bigger and fairly nice but I never go to the mall these days. Growing up that’s always where we shopped because Tim is like my dad and they like the tools section. I got my first pair of glasses at Sears (ok that wasn’t fun) and remember buying shoes and clothes there too.
We have registered at Macy’s and Bed Bath and Beyond. Bed Bath and Beyond was amazing, fun, and I can continue to edit in online – which is AWESOME!
I don’t have to tell you that the Sears at Chesapeake Square is not fantastic, so I don’t even think of going there, but I’m so glad that it works out for you!
I like the ability to edit online too. How is the Chesapeake square mall still open LOL?
Oh girl – that place is a dump. I wish they would do some renovations to it and make it nicer, then it would draw in better businesses.
We went to Bed Bath and Beyond and Target. I basically put everything I could ever want on my list and apparently that still wasn’t enough! I definitely think having too much is better than not enough.. but I asked for lots of kitchen appliances (ninja blender, kitchenaid mixer, big crock pot) and lots of stuff to cook with. Target sucked (like someone else said). But BBB was awesome!
Ahhh, registry making!! Jimmy and I made registries at Target, Kohls, and Bed Bath and Beyond. Whew. Way too many! I wish we would have just stuck with like Target. I didn’t like Bed Bath and Beyond because they wouldn’t let us start a registry unless we put china on it. I had a few other friends who said the same. Crazy!
Haha this is great! Sounds like a fun time the two of you had. I totally vote yes on that kiss pillow, especially for Tim 😉
We cheated and registered on honeymoonwishes.com and asked for “donations” to our honeymoon! Only two friends got us actual gifts and I was thrilled with that (and one got us an engraved cutting board- I LOVE it). I’d been living on my own for years and didn’t need anything! We had already been working on our house so we just decided to ask for the money, which ended up being great because all that money really ended up paying off our wedding completely (so much for the honeymoon fund portion).
I remember shopping at Sears since I was a teeny tiny kid, so the store definitely holds a lot of sentimental value for me. And I’m seriously afraid of registering for my wedding because I have a feeling I’ll go buck wild and be all like “Oooooo I -do- need a crepe maker! And look at that fancy soup ladle!”… Someone will need to hold me back.
ummmm first of all, your hair looks super cute in these pics! and it’s funny, the last time I went to sears was to get a tool, haha! It was a super teeny tiny screwdriver and sears was the only place that had it. I see why Tim shops there 🙂
Love the hot kiss pillow and so hope you get that! I registered at Crate and Barrel and some other place I don’t remember. The wedding registry was easy and fun…the twin baby registry was horrible and I think I got carpel tunnel from using the gun for two of everything!!!!
We registered at Target and Bed Bath & Beyond, since they had everything we needed and it was pretty cheap! Honestly, registering was really fun, but for some reason we still got a wholllle bunch of duplicates haha. Luckily, everything is easy to return!
I remember going to Sears to take pictures when I was a kid. My favorite part was the backdrop curtains that were raised and lowered when I changed outfits to match what I was wearing. The Sears at my mall just closed but it was a terrible mall so that’s probably good for the company not to be associated.
My husband and I loved running around the store with the little scanner thing picking out stuff for our registry. So much fun!
While I think wedding registering would be fun, I understand how it would be overwhelming haha. My boyfriend and I definitely have different tastes in some things too so there’d be a couple battles!
I bet it would be a lot of fun to register, but Im sure you can e overwhelmed. People here usually register at target and bedbath and beyond
