Early Christmas Shopping

We bought a few gifts for family on the Catch of the Day Catchathon (continuing today until… I don’t know when). But I also got a few things for myself: the ladies toolkit, socks!, and one more item I’m embarrassed to mention.

You see, I have made fun of my best friend for YEARS due to her penchant for getting suckered by infomercials. I’m the first to admit that it’s not all crap… but it’s just the number of times that the product actually gets used after the first week or two that I take issue with. How many ab-masters, slicer/dicer/can-openers, magical cleaning waters, and the like has she purchased over the years? I don’t even know. But it has become a bit of a joke between us.

So yesterday, I broke down and bought the Vacuum Fresh Box. I don’t even care if it breaks down in two weeks. If that means I don’t have to freeze my bread to keep it from turning into a hockey puck on my counter, then I am totally convinced I’ve gotten my money’s worth. We buy fresh bread at the market and end up freezing half the loaf, but then we’ve got all this yucky frozen bread to eat. I just want fresh bread… it that too much to ask?

** Put your bread in a Fresh Box™ Vacuum Seal Container from Amazon.

    Are you going to buy me one of those boxes??? I haven’t had any new informercial purchases lately. (Although, I have been wanting to do a colon cleanse from an informercial I saw last month)
