When the financial storm hit the fan over the past several weeks. Grandma asked. “Whatever happened to layaway?”
I was then lectured about how my great-grandmother got most of the furniture on layway. It was simple, you paid a little at a time, and when you made that last payment, nothing could replace the sheer joy of earning it and taken it home.
Back then, there were no credit cards, so no instant gratification. Gram has a point, now is a good time as any to go with the old fashion way of doing things.
