    Default Furniture & big ticket items....

    How do you pay for them?

    Do you save up? Do you earn enough to pay cash straight away? Do you put it on interest free?

    I'm genuinely curious as we are buying all new furniture, inlcuding fridge, washing machine... (Everything! )when we get to Queensland in 6 weeks.

    I will probably scour gumtree, garage sales & op shops to begin with but would eventually like to buy it new.

    I had wondered if the traditional layby was still available now they offer all these interest free deals. Good to know

    Interest free (providing we can pay it off months before free period ends) or we save up for it.

    Interest free here, I have a buyers edge that it all goes on. I think my limit is around 3k so when we need to get ssomething we just put it on there. We usually have some cash saved in our savings account for emergancies (such as the washer blows up etc.) But we would only need to use that if the buyers edge is maxed out, which it never is.

    A mix of credit card, lay by and saving. If we need it desperately we will put it on the credit card, if not we lay by or just save. Our formal lounge room was unfurnished for almost 2 years while we saved

    Save up if we can, if not the dreaded interest free, I think we interest free twice in 19 years.

    Interest free. We have gotten a few items this way, including our couch which we are currently paying off. It's an affordable way to do it, you just have to make sure you make your payments on time!
