That’s what we are. Big time suckers. I’m a sucker for clever marketing schemes. Seth can’t resist “as seen on TV” products. Those of you who’ve been around for a few years know about the pride Seth takes in our knife set.
According to the infomercial, they also cut everything from concrete blocks to soda cans, and they can still slice cleanly through a tomato.

If we had ordered NOW (then), Mr. Infomercial would throw in THREE FREE TUBES of the powerful bonding epoxy stick for NO EXTRA COST!
Do we get sweet deals or what?
Don’t even get me started on the swivel sweeper, mop h20 (this one’s in the works), “best of the 80′s” or any other crap…I mean lovely item he’s found on the tube.
Now I, on the other hand, am not completely blameless, as I have a hard time restraining from “new” products. And unfortuantely, it doesn’t really matter what it is. If there’s a commercial for an all-new ice cream snack…don’t worry, I’m on it. For example:
YUM! Why didn’t they think of this sooner?? (p.s. check out Blue Bell’s website for all their new products on the market…they have some delicious sounding ice cream flavors in the works)
Ok, well I’ve already had lunch but now I’m officially hungry again. Perhaps I should look into any recent job openings at HEB…..
