With the economy in turmoil, watching the news is not for the faint of heart. Just a few minutes of watching CNN while folding laundry can result in acute depression, anxiety attacks, and fear-induced paralysis.
Where to turn? What to do?
Instead of turning to a bottle of nerve pills washed down with a stiff martini, it seems to me that many people are turning to the ever-present and always-chipper home shopping channels.
Just pick up that little ol' remote control and click on over to QVC, where it's always sunny and happy--not to mention on-trend. And there are most certainly no problems in home shopping land! Well, except when you have decide which one of the fabulous colors to buy ... oh, what the heck! Just buy one of each. It's just money, for goodness sakes!
I think that folks are watching more and buying less. What do you think? Have you curbed your home shopping spending? Do you still keep HSN on in the background while you're fixing dinner?
