I avoid watching television commercials at all costs. I fast forward through them, mute them, read Twitter updates during them. Because if I am channel surfing and come across an infomercial, I stop. More from CNNMoney.com: • How I Afford Two-Month Vacations • My Spending Fast: I Saved $18,000 in a Year • American Express Offered a Credit Card to My 3-Year-Old! The eager salesman, the satisfied customers, the 800-number begging you to call -- it's entertainment, and I'm easily swayed. The perky presenters are unapologetic in their enthusiasm for a product and its merits, and I appreciate that transparency. They aren't selling soda by selling sex; they are selling a blanket with arms by selling a blanket with arms. With only bland stage sets as props, they detail each reason and way the product will change your life

Isn't it amazing how the mind of a human works? How someone can implant a constant thought to make that person spend their money on anything the seller wants. What are your thoughts on this article? Should we be more aware of what we buy or be aware of our spending habits?
