More watching and less buying a kind of housewives hobby. It is not quality of product or price that matters rather Camera-man's skill and Model's beauty that catches some business for them.

More rimocon? Anyway, this TV shopping business is pretty expensive. They claim that the products they peddle are cheap and some might be, but if you do some searching, the same products are often much cheaper elsewhere.

so it will be easier to buy those things you do not need from those annoying "amzing discoveries" products like abdominizer and abflex and such
