Layaway is Back

A new sign of the times or a passing fancy? Layaway is back or so Walmart and a few other stores are telling us. I see this as a positive financial change despite feeling sometimes that behavior has not changed after the 2008 financial crisis. This is a sign of the times. Can we adapt?
Layaway means patience. Layaway means planning. Layaway means not taking possession of something until you actually own the merchandise.
This type of behavior change is essential to your individual change toward money and toward purchasing. As we learn to manage our money better and purchase only what we can afford, then our reality will change and we will be better for it.
