I am very much the type of person that if it is not a necessity for me ...than i do NOT buy it...however , the one thing i really wanted for myself was a laptop.

Well , i went to a rent to own place to get a laptop and figured at the time that it was my best route to go...a year of paying ..means if something happens to it , i have coverage for a year...

However , its $100 a month...i've had the laptop since April. 

Well...things have popped up ...and i have been scraping the barrel to get by each month..

The rent a place calls me the other day to remind me that my payment is coming up..and i asked how much i had left on it ..they said 3 months.

Long story short , my laptop needs to go....they call me back today and tell me ' if you can give us $40 by saturday..the laptop is all yours' 

WOOHOO!!!! 

Now the question is ....can i keep the horse shoe for a bit longer...or do i lose it saturday?? LOL

lol i'll admit , i wasn't thinking and figured that it would be best to do it as rent to own for the year , that way if it broke or something happened to it ..than i would just have to take it into the store and it would be fixed without having to pay for it ...

I did have to take it in once ..

If they're only wantinf 40 more I'd pay it. The way I see it is you already put all that money in it why let it go back over 40. I do realize that 40 is a lot sometimes though.
