The dreaded words in my home growing up were, "We'll put it on lay away and get it before...what ever event.." I hated waiting for the date when we could get something out of lay away from P.N. Hirsch. I supposed with credit cards we can have what we want and pay for it later instead of paying and waiting. It's twisted and I'm not sure it's a good thing. I know I hated waiting but it did force me to really chose what I would wait for and know it's so easy to just charge and take home my items. Many times I find it's not something I really needed or wanted.
Maybe immediate gratification is not such a good idea, at least for me.
