or you could put money in a savings acct, where it will earn interest, and then to buy the things you want!

Exactly how much you do have in the damn bank?  Do you have any idea how much money you'd have to have IN the bank, earning money to be able to buy with what you earned in interest??

Personally after we have been in some crazy big debt (we owed $10k in credit card debt), we now never use credit cards, or any sort of pay off thing. We are saving up to pay out right cash for our next house. We paid off our debt within a few months but i dont like the feeling and while lay away isent like credit cards it gives you a similar mind set. Saving teaches you better impulse/shel control too.

I posted this for those who cannot do that- should they not have the proper income to put up for an extravagant Christmas, those who don't have the proper legal status, those who have nosey kids, the list goes on. I try not to be a judgmental snob and I thought that this would be a good heads up.

i think she means to just put the money in a savings so you dont touch it and can add to it and as a perk it will earn intrests. So its just a plus.

That never works for us lol. If we keep money in our savings we end up with like $.04 interest after 3 months. I don't use layaway either though, becaus it isn't available here.

Walmart layaway is stupid.  Use Kmart layaway!  Walmart won't let you put anything on layaway on either Thanksgiving Night or Black Friday.  I have cash set aside for Christmas shopping on Black Friday, but I am going to put some home electronics on layaway that night.  I only get paid once a month, so my check on November 27th will be the last one I get until December 31st.  I did layaway at Kmart last Thanksgiving and got everything for all the kids in the family.  I only had to buy a couple of stocktin stuffers.
