On QVC the host is constantly telling how many of this or that has been sold.
I'm curious.....does that make you WANT to buy whatever is being sold?
Does it sway you even a little or not at all?
For the record. It doesn't matter to me if they've sold zillions (is that a number) or 5.
I either want 'it' or don't want 'it'?
What say you? Come on now...be honest here? OK, fudge if you want, I'm curious because my guess is there's been a lot of research and the only reason QVC keeps saying how many they've sold is because it helps push a viewer into buying "it".

I have a list of what I need like right now : tan wedge sandals from Clark’s. Like either Kate Middleton or Jennifer Aniston wear for the last ten years. Clark’s fit me the best. But occasionally I do want a trend piece. Mostly I go trends with shoes or jewelry. But yeah, no counter of how many sold sways me but it must work.

Most of the time I have to need an item.
But there are things that I see that I really like and at times I buy it whether I need it or not.
Im also guilty of impulse buying at times.

I buy if I like the looks of a garment and if I think it will look good on me. I also care if it will last and wash well and can be worn in my climate. I do care what reviewers say about a garment. I don’t care how many were recently sold.

Since I've retired I'm much more selective about what I spend my money on. I think about whether the item is going to improve my life enough to justify the expense.

If it's something I have in wish list and they offer free shipping or a really good clearance price.....or both!
I have gotten talked into a purchase based on the "hype" that I need it even though that isn't true for me at all LOL!
Or the line "you simply can't find anything like this out in retail" NOT TRUE!
When a certain host DV constantly wants to give out a "big number" every 3 seconds it is actually a turn off if I was even interested in the item and just would like to see it presented fully.
So I think it may have a opposite effect on me these days!
