I admit I have bought too much from QVC over the years. It took me a long time to wise up. I have not made any purchases in Jan.

@Lucky Charm   I often tell people trying selling something that I don't want to buy that I am broke and have no money...can't afford it, etc.

 

My husband got upset and said should not tell people that and that it embarrassed him.

 

I told him no one Is going to waste their breath trying to sell me something if I have no money.  It's a sure fire why of getting them to leave me alone.

 

It's a powerful statement and it works.

Well, that's one way to do it. 

 

I always say "Oh my gosh, what a coincidence, I just bought that yesterday!".

I've done my share as well over the past 30 years.  Way back when, it was a convenience and value to shop on QVC.  Now there are so many options out there.  I also think as we age we realize that we don't need or want as much as we did when we were younger.
