As Seen On TV

Have you ever had an addiction? Well I think that we might have something along those lines under our roof, and No, it is not me.

My dear Mr Darcy has discovered infomercials and periodically I find a new box on the porch put there courtesy of UPS. I always know who to ask about it, My darling Mr Darcy.

It is amazing to me that a man so completely structured with our budget is so free to order from every Tom, Dick or Harry that has a new product to sell. We have a new Ninja Master Prep blender (which is actually quite cool), as well as a new AB Circle Pro (haven't used this yet), and a couple of books came yesterday.

In all fairness, every item really does have a useful purpose for our household, it is just mind boggling to me to see him be so financially human. (It must be said that he would never spend irresponsibly) Who woulda thunk!

How about you! Anyone out there have the same addiction? Have you bought anything from an infomercial that you regretted? Any great purchases that you have never regretted. Share!

Whatever it will be Nic it will be fabulous. But maybe you should start watching them (the infomercials) to get a little peak at what may be in your future.

eBay is my achilles heel. I love getting packages on my doorstep!

I love ordering things too. I just got the MOST awesome Bark collar for our Dog, and it was the best $7.20 I've ever spent! LOL

Lets see, there was the guitar, that we had to have and now someone else has it. There was the random diet pill that we didnt' even try, and there was the magic jack that I refuse to use.
A few things. Why do we get sucked in. I guess that's called good advertising.
love you!
