The Ab-Doer -- It's a chair with these arms that come over it and you are supposed to pull down on them and as you pull down on the arms it's supposed to give you the effect of doing a sit up, while sitting up. Stupid thing held my laundry for the longest time because it doesn't work.

Now, as for my honey, I have a great list for you:

- A disco Ball, actually 3
- Four Karaoke Machines
- Bagpipes
- Three Ukeleles
- The "Kramer"
- Lights that will light up with the beat of music ????
- A Blow Up Sumo Halloween costume in January
- A Reggae Wig

I can go on if you want me to. The list is extremely lengthy!

I bought this hair removal system that was supposed to permanently remove hair using radio frequencies. I thought I would never have to shave my legs again, WRONG. The damn thing didn't even remove one hair, let alone my whole leg's worth of hair. I spent almost $100 on it and couldn't return it. I'm sure there are other things, but supper's ready, I'll think of more while I eat my fajitas.:D

Do cookbooks count? I have a lot that I bought, yet I haven't tried any of the recipes yet.

Ok lets see here where do I begin

An abdoer ok I didnt buy it my hubby came home with it - and Jesse you are right it does not work - I even researched on the net and you get like a level one cardio workout but it is good for hanging laundry on.

An eforce glider thing - that I bought from an infomorciel must have cost 400 bucks and does not work and the thing squeaked like crazy. I sold it to a co-worker for 20 bucks who turned around and sold it to another co-worker for 10

Cellulite cream off the net that was supposed to give me smooth fat free legs - the only thing fat free is in my fridge

Two body balls both the wrong size with no pump so they are basically useless but my kids play with them.

An easy rider pretty much the same as an e-force except much smoother though not to convinced that it gives you a workout though - hubby came home with this one too.

A home electryolisis kit - there is a reason why we pay to have this done

Green spray paint for the grass - the basically makes totally un- natural stains on the grass.

The one that you sit the potato on, spin a handle and it "magically" peels the potato? We have that too, it doesn't work.

I forgot infomercial stuff, don't even get me started on that one. Maybe I'll give you all that list when I come home from work tonight. :eek:

In my early 20's and in desperate need of wanting to "fit in", I spent my entire tax refund of some several hundred dollars on cowboy clothes, including poopkickers and a cowboy hat, for an upcoming rodeo . . . . . . I looked very stupid that day. Never wore the stuff again.

Haven't owned a cowboy hat or poopkickers since then either . . . .

Secondly, as a humiliation bonus for your amusement, again in my early 20's (the early 80's), proving that sex sells, I was in this men's shop in a small Alberta city at the complete mercy of some very, very lovely and buxom salesgirls . . . . . and they managed to hornswaggle me into buying the last shirt from the disco era in their store, something so horribly out of date that as I looked back I saw them giggling and pointing at me as I walked out the door, bag in hand.

Of course, I would have believed anything they had said that day . . . . but I've never let my (insert phallic symbol here) do the shopping for me since. :highfive: :angel:

Given my shopaholic ways this could be a novella. But what immediately comes to mind is the nine foot green velvet couch I bought for Declan (he kept sliding off the leather one:eek: ) which had to be carried up three flights of stairs and then took a 1/2 of of wrangling by two burly guys to get it into the livingroom and now is my very own nine foot velvet hair collector !:D Obviously, Declan likes it...

I almost forgot a few others to add to the list. For some reason the man is also big on inflatable toys (as I type this I know what just popped into all you sickos minds and that's not it!), anyway, we have a six foot inflatable palm tree, a five foot inflatable monkey, a inflatable surf board, a inflatable cooler, and countless inflatable beach balls. As I remember more, I'll add to the list. I seriously have a two car garage that we can't keep any cars in because of his crap, oh wait, I mean treasures. :p

I could fill pages, i'm sure, since I'm a sucker for gadgets. Recently, a booklight since our living room was kinda dark at night. The stupid thing is so heavy and akward, it bends the book. Didn't seem so heavy in the package, but it takes 6 AA batteries to run.

Is it a Ronco product? If yes, I own it, and regret it.

Ronco Food Dehydrator
Ronco Food Dehydrator trays for fruit leather and "yogurt" drops
Ronco Solid Flavour injector
Pocket Fisherman.... no I don't fish, I have fished maybe 5 times in my life.
Ronco GLH in Blonde.... I pressed the wrong entry code, and now have fake blonde hair in a can. I'm not even blonde
Ronco Inside-the-shell egg scrambler
Ronco Dial-o-matic
Ronco Flip-its

Then I also have this fake ocean, that runs a band of illuminated screen with pictures of fish round and round. It was my alternative to a pet, Only problem is, I got a real pet 10 days later, and the thing is so loud, it sounds like a reving motorcycle.

We had a huge one before we moved. These are treasures he refuses to get rid of. It's bad, I really want him to go on a "guys getaway" weekend so I can clean and get rid of a bunch of stuff, but I think he is suspicious.

By the way, the house we live in now is so much bigger than before so he thinks he can go out and buy more stuff.

I certainly like the concept as I am concerned about my dryer set up - but am equally concerned about the little logo on the box "As Seen On TV" - have never found that to be good. If anyone has this - "in storage" - would appreciate advice as to what to do with mine - before I open it. Includes 10' Dryer Vent Duct Brush, 36" Lint Rap Vent Brush and a Vacuum Hose Attachment. Too bad Vacuum is at death's door. Thanks.

I have bought lots of useless stuff to try and get my kids to sleep on their own - none of it worked.

-Kenny Loggins Lullaby CD - great CD but the kid hated it
-drops from health store to put on tongue - made him even more mad
-this thing that sounds like a moms heart beat and amniotic fluid - like a peaceful whooshing sound - must not --have been my heart beat or amniotic fluid as my kid hated it too
-this thing that makes stars on the ceiling and pretty shapes - as well did not work
-pullups that you are supposed to be able to feel when you wet - nope didnt work

ok has anyone bought a clapper - someone has to admit to that
what about the flowpe - the vacuum thing that goes on your head that cuts your hair :D

omg! These are hilarious! You are all such good sports to share your little .. and not-so-little items that didnt quite pan out..

I have made tons of stupid purchases, impulse buys. Clothes that I was "going to' fit into, a bike that I've ridden once, useless cosmetics that I was pressured into buying at those in- home sales parties,.. some green alleged health drink that looked and tasted like bile.
But I am not a "gadget' person, nor a tv product consumer so nothing nearly as interesting and colourful to match these.

My husband loves to browse the flea markets ( serious pack rat) Some of the 'finds" he's shown up with have left me at a loss for words.:eek:

His taste in objects d' art leave a bit to be desired.
One of my favourites was an ugly rubber fish on a plaque that sang "Dont Worry, Be Happy".

He seems to be partial to things that sing..

This last Easter he bought a stuffed toy rabbit on his bargain hunting travels.. no idea why. He thought it was cute - it's ears light up, and it moves along the floor singing what must be a seasonal greeting..
If only any of us knew Spanish..
Well, its the thought that counts.

Maybe it is me but what is silly about 3 ukes, lol? (I have just one but used to play it, haven't in yrs tho and taught ukelele in the school system as a teenager. It was a great way for kids to learn music.) I am sure I have bought something stupid but can't thino of anything offhand - I have never bought anything from an infomercial. I did but the Sims software and while I have installed it, never have time to play and have yet to figure it all out. (I also bought the pet edition). So that may be a waste of money tho I can always donate it to the hospital. The other day I was in a hurry (a chronic prob, lol) and bought some strawberry water only to dscover when I arrived home it had 66 calories and was more like pop than water. Oh well, I drank it anyway, lol I once bought a light for a Game Boy - that prob counts as something I hardly needed, lol

I most definitely did not buy it, but have recently seen the sales pitch on TV for a gadget that sits on your car's front window and supposedly lowers the heat caused by the sun???? Looks like one of those timers you can use to turn your lights on and off when on vacation. Somehow I think this product would be seriously useless. Re the Pasta Perfect, I have seen it, but just couldn't imagine using it for the "cooking" of suggested foods - hot dogs? I would be afraid they would be still raw - and even worse for you.

jesse's mommy
August 6th, 2006, 11:35 AM
SnowDancer, I am laughing so hard right now. The hot dog thing is why my honey wanted the pasta perfect and he has mentioned the thing that you put in your car to cool it off. He wants it SOOOOO BAD! He told me if I happen to see it somewhere to PPPPLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE pick it up for him. I just saw the commercial yesterday and I was just shaking my head. These infomercials have my honey's number.

Jesse'sMommy - If you get the "car cooler" I absolutely have to have a report on how well it DOESN'T work. Just think if it did - would make the car air conditioner people quake in their boots. I have seen the Pasta Express at Linens and Things in Toronto and figured that pasta would be al dente at best - fine with me - but if pasta is al dente, gee, how "cooked" would the hot dogs be! I guess I would have to test on DH - after all, wouldn't want puppy dog to get an upset stomach.
