Have you ever heard of this?

With the holidays almost here, pretty much everyone is trying to stretch their budget to get everyone on their list what they have asked for from Santa this year and sometimes if you wait until the last minute, you might not be able to find the hot toy that you are looking for.

That's when "Redneck Layaway" comes in handy. If you have no idea what redneck layaway is, let me help you out.

A close friend of mine told me that her definition of how "redneck layaway" works is as follows, "When you can't afford to put something on layaway, you take the item you desire at the store your shopping at and hide it in the store behind some stuff so you can come back when you have the money and pay for it. If you don't do this the toy or whatever you want could be all sold out and then your poop out of luck."

Have you ever done something like this? Did it work out for you or did you go back to the store to find that they found your stash and returned it to where it belongs?
