Each year at Christmas, parents want to make sure their kids have everything they want. Though it's true that the holiday season isn't all about presents, there's nothing better than seeing the look on your child's face when they unwrap the toy they've been asking for all year.
However, Christmas can certainly add up money-wise, and sometimes families have to use layaway. They put a deposit down on their purchase and slowly pay it off as they can. It can be a cause of stress for a lot of people, but the things we do at Christmas for our families are always worth it.
Toys "R" Us is one of the most common places for layaway orders, as parents compile all the gifts they want for their children in one shopping trip. The orders can range anywhere from $100 to thousands of dollars. A common time for layaway orders to be placed is Black Friday, as that is when the best sales are happening. After that, there's 90 days to make payments before your order is cancelled.
But for 62 people at a Toys "R" Us in New Jersey, no payments were required for their orders.
