In this sponsored post, I share my experience shopping at Sears for their extended July 4th sale.

I grew up in a Brooklyn, New York in a neighborhood called Flatbush. Humble beginnings for sure, but I am so proud. I have so many wonderful childhood memories from my old neighborhood. One of those memories is walking to Sears with my mom to go shopping. Whether she needed something for our home or she wanted to buy toys or clothes for us (especially around special occasions), Sears was her go-to department store.

If there is anything you should know about New Yorkers, it’s that we are loyal. That’s why when I was presented with an opportunity to partner with Sears, I couldn’t pass it up. I have fond memories of Sears and I wanted to reconnect with the brand so I can see what they have to offer me, and you, my readers.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to visit my local Sears store and learn about their extended July 4th sale. From tractors to appliances to tools and apparel, I was able to get a firsthand look at what Sears has in store for its customers.

I will admit that you will not catch me mowing the lawn–not ever. But I will also admit that I actually do care about how my husband mows the lawn because I hate the idea of him being out there for hours on the weekends when he could be spending quality time with us instead. That’s why I was interested in checking out the Poulan Pro Riding Tractor, which was yesterday’s exclusive sale item of the day. Some of the amazing features include:

  • A 15.5 horsepower Briggs & Stratton engine that helps get the job done in less time.
  • A 42-inch mowing deck that allows you cut wide sections of grass at a time.
  • 6 cutting heights let you customize your mow to the condition of your lawn.
  • 16″ turning radius makes handling tight corners and hilly terrains no problem.
  • A seat that’s nicely padded and includes a cup holder to keep your drink close while you’re out in the yard.
  • The ability to mow in reverse mode, so you never lose any cutting time.


Now even if you don’t care too much about these details, I am sure your husband will. And once you realize that this can mean a lot less time outside on the lawn every weekend, you’ll care too.

Today’s special item is the Craftsman 4-piece Lithium Combo Kit, which has the convenience of a box of power tools in one compact bag. It comes with a 1/2″ drill, a reciprocating saw, a circular saw and a handy work light and two lithium batteries, a charger and a heavy-duty bag to store it all in. Also, a perfect gift for your husband, especially if he likes to take on projects around the house.


As a mom, what I love most about Sears is the ability to kill multiple birds with one stone (I would never really kill birds, though…LOL). I love that we can get a lawn mower at Sears and then check out appliances, clothes for the kids, bedding, and so much more.

I am always looking for ways to make my life easier, and Sears is truly trying it’s best to make the shopping experience more affordable and more pleasant for its customers. Sears is also a part of Shop Your Way, a free social shopping destination and rewards program offering millions of products, personalized services, and advice. The program rewards members for buying the products and services they want every day.
