As Seen On TV

My kids are obsessed with the As Seen On TV items they see on TV. I don't think a single day goes by when I don't hear about a new product we just HAVE TO HAVE. And heaven help us if we see one of those item in a store. Its not like its a new toy. Its a green bag to keep my veggies fresh or a special purse so I never loose my keys or my cell phone.

We have never gone as far as to purchase any of these items, but I think the kids are starting to wear me down. It is kind of sweet that my son is worries about me loosing the keys and that he wants to help me not waste money on uneaten veggies and fruit.

Here are a few of our favorites!

Does anyone else have this problem? Has anyone ever bought an AS SEEN ON TV and loved it? Let me know!

Having a VGNO. Will you join me? Just click below!

I am kinda embarrassed to admit this, but I once bought a thigh master. Remember those? A long, long time ago. Damn thing didn't do any good. Of course!
Happy GNO!

Stopping by from Ann's VGNO party to say hello!

Never bought an AS SEEN ON TV product. Not that I haven't wanted to. But my husband always stops me!

Happy VGNO! Enjoy your weekend.

I haven't found a winner from those As Seen On TV products. When I do I'll let you know :->

I finally have Mr. Linky working so I hope that brings more "party goers" your way.

Happy VGNO!!

Husband bought the Pedi Paws nail sander do-da, which he seems pretty pleased with, and that was an As Seen on TV item, I'm pretty sure.

Happy VGNO!

I'm determined to get the pedi-paws thing, because I hate trying to cut my two dalmatians nails. But other than that, I try to avoid anything that says "As seen on TV". Although, if I remember correctly, that's how Oxi-Clean got its start and there's a ton of folks that praise that stuff to the stars.

Happy VGNO. :)

I don't think I've ever bought from an infomercial. Targhay usually has a lot of the "As seen on tv" stuff. That's where I got The Magic Bullet.

Stopping by for VGNO. Have a great weekend.!

I petered out at midnight last night, so I'm stopping by with brunch this morning... ;)

Princess Nagger is constantly touting the praises of the 'As Seen On TV' products, saying we HAVE to get things - I have bought a few, but mostly I wait until they show up in the store so I don't have to pay shipping...like yesterday I found a lap desk at Target that I've been wanting for my laptop when I'm on the couch...it was half the price from the TV commercial, and no shipping! ;)

Hope you had fun at the VGNO! Have a great Memorial Day weekend! :)

Oh yes, we definitely have that problem. My kids continually inform me of all those products that they see on TV - we haven't bought any of them yet either, but I'm sure the day is coming when we will. Right now they are on this kick to get me to buy some toothpaste dispenser...no that's not a mess waiting to happen!
