MeMe Monday: As Seen on T.V.

My oh my! I am an infomercial junky, mainly because there is nothing on t.v. at the ungodly hour I am sometimes awake in the morning. But, I have to say I have never bought anything. My husband has though. When I had our daughter who is now almost 7 I had an emergency gall bladder surgery when she was 5 weeks old (this is a whole other story which could be quite a lengthy post). I was in the hospital for two nights and my husband had to feed our daughter who was breast fed a bottle and somehow get her to sleep. So, he sat in the over-sized chair in our bedroom feeding and sleeping with our daughter and watched a great deal of t.v. During these two nights he had seen to infomercial for the Shark Sweeper and decided to purchase it. They even suckered him into the extra battery. It proved to work for our family, quickly picking things up off the floor after dinner, but then again so does the dog. The dog was by far more expensive so the jury is still out on the better purchase there. We no longer have the Shark Sweeper. My mother-in-law gave us a swivel sweeper because she didn't like it. I prefer that and so does our youngest. He sweeps constantly! I train them young! I am so busy I have to!

I have to say that I have no idea what is out there right now. I have wanted many products seen in infomercials though; Magic Bullet, Space Bags, Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter (I guess I did purchase this one from Target, not worth it), Perfect Pancake, that brownie pan thing. I could go on! But, I am able to show restraint, because I know it will shop up in the As Seen on T.V. aisle at Target before I know it and I can buy it there minus the free gift that I will pay $29.99 in shipping for!

I forgot about the Magic Bullet...I have one of those. I think I've only used it twice, though. I had a Perfect Pancake, too...but that thing was a GIANT POS!!!!

I like to save the shipping and handling too. If the prodict is at all popular it will show up at the store eventually.

I never buy from the infomercials... I check out the As Seen On TV aisle at Wal-Mart or Walgreens to see if there is anything interesting to try, LOL

I am always tempted to buy the Strap Perfect for my bra!

I still show restraint when I see the items in the store. I worry I am just going to waste my money.

The grocery store by us has an "As Seen on TV" aisle as well. That's where I found my PedEgg :)
