Which one can’t you live without?

Standard

Okay, I might have been a little sarcastic with the title of this post. Because I am talking about the ever so popular things that we find…

Which one is your favorite??

What I have caved into buying

  • Ped-Egg– works beautifully
  • Slap Chop– crying while cutting onions? no more!!
  • Ab-Circle– Hahahahaha! That was sent right back. Going in circles doesn’t give you super sized abs. Who would have thought!?!
  • Push up pro– not too shabby. But, nothing will make push-ups ever fun and enjoyable!
  • Snuggie– this was bought for me. Doesn’t everyone have to have one??
  • Smooth Away– make it to where you don’t have to shave or get laser hair removal, dang it- I fell for it. Now I use it as a play-doh smasher when I play with my girls.
 Now, these just make me chuckle..
Spending $100’s on bras that make your boobs look natural?? Oh no, you want to go for the, I-wanna-poke-your-eye-out look.
Beware cosmetic dentists, you are going to lose so much business because of this. The lady went from looking like she has tobacco teeth to Ross Geller white instantly!
Ugliest house shoes ever!!
Now we are just being super lazy. Is it that hard to cut brownies after they cool off?
Modern day fanny pack. For all you “fanny lovers” out there, it’s time to upgrade!
And, my new favorite
Pajama Jeans!!!!
Why worry about having to change from bed to work?? They just took all the painful guess-work out of deciding what to wear in the morning. They even say on the commercial you will want to wear them EVERYDAY! Problem solved 🙂
What is your favorite AS SEEN ON TV product?

THIS is what I bought off of Ebay??

Standard

Oh, the horror!

I felt just like Kyle looks.

With my upcoming travels this Christmas season, I decided it was time to look for some new luggage. About 8 years ago, I found an awesome deal on a luggage set on Ebay for a steal! So, of course I thought a few weeks ago to look on there again. If it wasn’t for the amazing staff at the airports that handle luggage, mine would have held up better. Anyway, it was time to shop for some more. I found this cute carry-on bag that was a perfect size, a lot of compartments (which always catches my eye), and it was different. (I am always looking for things that are different) The ONLY thing wrong with it was a couple of small stains on the inside. The condition stated: New with defects.

Okay, some small defects…I can handle that! It was a good price, great designer, so I started bidding. I won, I paid ASAP, then I waited 2 weeks for this sucker to arrive. I thought that was a bit long, but it’s not like I needed it right now, so no big deal. When the UPS guy left that nice little package on my door (It always feels like you are getting a gift, doesn’t it?) I was excited. I opened the door and found the most beat up box I had ever seen. It said fish and chips on the outside of it, and that’s about what it smelled like too. It was a little interesting trying to open the box because it was so beat up. But, I open it to find the bag I bought inside a garbage bag. A garbage bag?? Really?? This person had no other way of packing it? Some tissue paper, paper towels, toilet paper? I bet this was a used garbage bag too!

Then, I pull out the bag. Small defects my a**!  Not only did it have about 3 inches of dust on it..no lie, but it smelled like mothballs and I started having a sneezing attack.

Great, I just paid for a bag that I’m allergic to.

Now this bag did have tags on it, but you know these kind of tags- the ones you can take off and put back on again. Yep, these were those. This bag could have very well been 20 yrs old. Or heck even worse, as old as me! I opened the bag and was further disappointed. One, two, three, four…..”small” stains as they called it. What a waste of money!! Ebay had never done me wrong before! I know, it wasn’t Ebay’s fault, it was that lovely seller that is about to be a 100% (feedback) seller NO MORE! I shall be the one that is going to bring that person down a few notches.

I know, there is risk that comes with buying online from other people who may or may not be shady. And I guess this seller who previously had 100% positive feedback, just decided to mess with me. Well, my dust-covered, fish & chips smelling bag is now residing in my garage. Yes, I bought it from a seller who doesn’t accept returns. I’m a loser. I learned a lesson.

So, does anybody want a cool carry-on bag that’s like new with only some small defects?? 😉
