I don't really recall the first Infomercial Product I bought. I never ordered any off of the Infomercials. I purchased them at the state fair or at Target. The first products I bought were probably the Ginsu Knife and the Sweepa. I was never impressed with the Ginsu. In fact I returned one for replacement one year at the state fair and it was exchanged for a new one immediately and without question. I love the Sweepa. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's what it looks like:
If you have pets, you have pet hair and the Sweepa is the fastest, easiest way to sweep it up. The last time I Sweepa'd the stairs I had enough cat hair for a small kitten. No lie! I always Sweepa before we clean the carpets. (I mean, before Anastasia cleans the carpets.) That way I get all the hair picked up so it doesn't get caught in the beater bar of the carpet cleaner.

One product that I wasn't satisfied with, I can't recall the Infomercial name, but it was a vegetable slicer that came with different blade attachments. I could never figure out how to get it to do what they showed on the infomercial.

Hmm, I love my Ginsu for slicing tomatoes and such, really thin. The worst thing we ever bought off TV is when Hubs was up late one night and got all caught up in this"Amazing Mattress Pad thing. They were buy one get one free. He ordered it while I was sleeping and paid over 250.00 for it! When it showed up, it was a simple egg crate type foam pad, about 2 inches thick. The same kind they have dirt cheap at town. I could have choked him!
