Call Now!

Infomercials rarely have influence on me. Dave on the other hand, well, he gets home around 1 a.m. or so and there is nothing but infomercials on. Needless to say, he's convinced we need Power 90 after the baby is born. We are going to be the "family of steel", or so he thinks.

I may be having a change of heart towards those products that seem too good to be true. I keep seeing the Shamwow. I don't know if it's the actual product or the hilarious guy that sells them. When he soaks up the pop in the carpet, gets me everytime. And I don't even buy paper towels, so there really is no need to replace anything here. It just looks fun to use.

But here's my final straw when thinking about purchasing these products. If they really worked, wouldn't they be selling in stores? Wouldn't Target be stocking up on Shamwow's if they were that good? Like the upside down tomato garden, the Topsy Turvy. Bed, Bath and Beyond is selling them, along with Amazon. That is all the convincing I need. I'm heading out to buy the Topsy Turvy.

I'm convinced that we might be related! I've been itching to purchase P90X...but I haven't pulled the trigger. Really, I would like to borrow someone's copies. It's not cheap. :)

If you guys bite the bullet, let me know (speaking of, I would also like to get the Magic Bullet...can you tell that I'm up pretty late sometimes).

A few friends mentioned that the hanging tomato thingy didn't work at my book club. Heads up!

i saw the shamwow at costco the other day, so maybe it lives up to the hype? this crazy local gardener with a saturday am show just raves about the hanging tomato growers, for what it's worth...

You probably already bought one, but I saw the topsy turvy at the Gateway Winco on 102nd. It was with the planters, after the produce and near the seafood counter.
