Hey ATS, have you ever seen one of those commercials where they try to sell something for $19.99? like a toothpaste dispenser, they make it look so hard to get toothpaste out of a tube by yourself its ridiculous.
Or maybe you've seen blendy pens or whatever? How long does it take for those to dry up?
Or what about the appliance slider thing? Its like a mat you put your coffee maker or blender or whatever on and it slides forward to you? Ill bet that thing breaks super easy.

So please share your suspicions of certain products or your experiences with them
I want to make a list of whats a rip off and whats a true bargain.

ShamWow leaves streaks when cleaning mirrors with "streakless" cleaner.

I will say that Shamwow does a great job at cleaning other things like showers, sinks, tubs, counter tops, and door frames. The dirt and filth rinses out of it really easy under an ordinary garden hose.

SlapChop and Shamwow's are good stuff.

Can be found cheaper usually at Walmart though.

19.99 a year... a TRUE bargain

Magic Jack

I have had it going on 3 years now and I love it.. the best 19.99 ever.

I can call anyone, anytime and talk forever... for 19.99 a year.. no joke.

Here is the short commercial for SlapChop.

Just ignore the part where he tells you that youre going to love his nuts

I bought the shamwows, and I say they are a total sham. They don't do anything a regular towel wouldn't do better. They are advertised as being super absorbent, that's a complete and utter joke. The slap chop is good, hard to clean though.

The Hercules hooks are great, but cheaper I think.

For $19.99, I gotta say the Slap Chop can kiss the fattest part of my @$$. It actually breaks when you slap it. If I can't take my frustrations out on poor, defenseless vegetables, what can I take it out on?

- in retrospect, I may have slapped it a little too hard... I think it owed me money

As far as what's $19.99 that does work, so far the hanging upside-down thingy that grows tomatoes seems to work just fine... my girlfriend got one and now we've got 'Maters growing on the porch...

SAVE-A-BLADE razor cartridge sharpener. This is the greatest invention of all time. It has saved me hundreds of dollars on replacement cartridges and works great. They are a bit harder to find now but I get them on eBay and give them as gifts.

You can laugh all you want but my wife and I fight over her Snuggie. (Blanket with sleeves.) Thats is OK by me. I gave it to her for Christmas and it is Leopard pattern. It is sooooo comfy.

My self esteem went out the window when I started wearing my Crocs out of the house and beyond yard work. Started innocently enough with a trip to Home Depot and one of my buddies spotted me. Then I figured what the heck, cover blown, nothing to lose.
