Christmas Shopping: Layaway vs Black Friday

Posted by   + Show Post
So I am just curious as to which you lovely ladies is the most cost effective way to buy gifts. Layaway: get the stuff you want and pay over time. Black Friday: wait for the stuff you want to maybe be a great deal. Let's hear your thoughts ladies!

I've never done either. I prefer to shop clearance throughout the year

I do Black Friday every year... this is going to be the first year where it's going to be semi hard bc for the past 5 years I've had 2 or 4 other people with me and we'd grab for each other and this year I'm probably going to be by myself :-( ..... My exSIL is going to watch the kids at my place and she'll have my card information that way if I need her to jump on and order things she can... But I honestly save anywhere from hundreds to 2 thousand before and I've never spent more than 400 on BF.

This will be the first year I'm trying it .. Are the deals better than in store? and how hard is it to get what you want?

We only did layaway this year on a big ticket item for a family gift, and don't really shop on Black Friday because I don't feel like I have found good deals out of the 3 times I have tried.

I buy all year long now if Wal_Mart would bring back layaway all the time I would use that but they don't. I love Black Friday though it's a day my daughter & I get to go be just with ourselves otherwise we always have kids. We buy some stuff then, but it's more about just spending the night together.

Black Friday!

I got a nice washer and dryer for $1000 when they are usually $1000 each.
