A layaway program will differ from pawn shop to pawn shop. Plano Pawn Shop offers an extremely generous 12 month FREE plan in which you can make equal monthly payments to payoff an item.
Layaway offers you the ability to spend smarter by taking your time and plan your purchases. The payments will allow you to stay within your budget and ultimately save you money.
Clean Up & Liquidate
Take an inventory of your assets. This would include jewelry, firearms, watches, luxury items, tools, musical instruments & more. Are there any items you have that you have not touched in a year or more? If so, you might consider selling to your nearest pawn shop.
The pawn shop purchases the items mentioned above and many more. This makes for a quick way to create an immediate cash surplus in which you can use to open or add to a savings account.
Start Saving Today
One of the biggest factors is delaying or never getting started on saving. The best thing you can do is start and start today.
