Home Stuff

We’ve been receiv­ing copies of Home for a while now. I don’t know why. Some­times mag­a­zines just start com­ing. As long as they don’t come with unex­pect­ed invoic­es, I don’t real­ly wor­ry about them.

Any­way, this thing is real­ly dan­ger­ous. I haven’t read a sin­gle arti­cle, but I just picked it up and skimmed it last night, and appar­ent­ly, I’m very sus­cep­ti­ble to this par­tic­u­lar sort of adver­tis­ing. I want those between-the-glass win­dow blinds with the remote con­trol. No dust­ing! No loose cords to endan­ger babies! And that Con­tin­u­um water heater that claims that you’ll nev­er run out of hot water again and pay half as much to heat the water? I’m there. I’ve been lust­ing after my very own car­pet steam clean­er for sev­er­al years, and now I want the Hoover Floor­MATE too, for scrub­bing hard floors. There’s a washer/dryer set that looks won­der­ful. And I won’t even start drool­ing over the stor­age stuff, or fix­tures, or fur­ni­ture. That’s in the first 20 or so pages!

I don’t think I should be allowed to see this kind of mag­a­zine after we buy a house. That would just be too tempt­ing because right now I’m large­ly resist­ing because this is just a rental home. (Okay, that and lack of money.)
