i'm officially an eighty year old woman

It's a sad day friends. After 30 years of avoiding 'As Seen on TV' merchandise, I've caved.
Not once. Twice.
In the past month I've bought two as seen on TV items.
And the worst part? I like them both. A Lot.



It's true. Both are completely useful, served their purpose, and dare I say were money well spent.

I feel like I don't even know myself anymore.
At least I can hold my head up high and say I didn't purchase the pajama jean. Because nothing says "I've given up on life" more than the pajama jean.

Please, someone, anyone... tell me you've purchased an 'As Seen on TV' item so I don't feel so foolish.
Or make fun of me at will. Either is totally fine.
xoxo

I'm guessing that second one stops your couch from sagging?

I haven't bought anything of lately but another blog friend says that bra they advertise is so worth it!

Leslie said...

OMG, we totally need furniture fix, and have considered it also! HA! How does it work? Jeff has worn out his side of the couch...

Michelle said...

I just saw the spice swivel yesterday and was thinking how fantastic it looks!!!! Glad you like it; I might have to cave as well.

Jen said...

I can't even count all of the items my boyfriend has bought "As Seen on TV." I think it's his favorite aisle in CVS... We even have the Sham Wow! LOL... No shame, Morgan, no shame.

Funny I was just saying this weekend how I'm a sucker for infomercials. If I had the money I would buy everything. I totally buy into the sales pitches. haha.

I love that you bought the furniture fix. I think that commercial is hilarious because of the sumo wrestlers and how they turn and smile at each other with such approval. I've definitely bought the as seen on tv stuff before...and I really want to ped egg.

My sister Liz Hoke, who commented above is absolutely correct - she and my mom are both total suckers to the as seen on tv! you win some, and you loose some - as long as you didn't get the hawaii chair (if you don't know what I am talking about, google Ellen Degenerus and the hawaii chair... oh so funny!) you are good!

Megan said...

I could have written your post. Except that I haven't bought them yet. I just want to... the first thing - the spice thing, I mean. And then eggies would be my second "As Seen..." purchase. I don't even like eggs, but the eggie is so cool.

Nicole Marie said...

Mo Pie, Please said...

Hey, if it's practical and makes you happy then it doesn't matter where it was purchased. But it is kind of funny!

~KS said...

I have in fact given up on life... as I bought the pajama jeans. They sucked.

Holly said...
