Not layoffs, but layaway. What a sign of the times.
When I was a teenager, and maybe even in my early twenties, I remember buying things on layaway. I had very little debt back then. Those were the days.
Well, for many people, what's old is new again. Layaway is back. It makes sense. Instead of racking up debt, you can pay a little cash over time to make your purchases. There's no instant gratification, but there's also no buyer's remorse.
I've recently learned that layaway has gone 21st century. Now you don't have to go to the store to put your items on layaway, you can go online and do it. Lay-Away.com and eLayaway both offer these services. I haven't tried them out, but the concept is kind of interesting. Have any of you tried the new layaway?
