To Buy Or Not To Buy

I have seen a few things that I am thinking of buying but I am not sure if it’s worth it. Does anybody have information or opinions on these things?

1. Apara Jammies with Aloe Vera – These are those super soft fuzzy socks with built in Aloe Vera! You are supposed to wear them if you have dry feet. I think they would be great for the winter since my feet can get dry and very cold! I love soft socks too. But how do these work to moisturize your feet? Do they even work? I can’t seem to find any information about socks with built in Aloe Vera. Anybody have experience with these? They are pretty pricy….I saw them at Bed Bath and Beyond for 7 bucks a pair. Even with my 20% off coupon it’s hard to justify paying that much for 1 pair! haha.

2. Chia Herb Garden – Ok, I don’t really have a green thumb AND I don’t even cook that often but when I do it’s such a pain to have to buy fresh herbs when I use so little! Sometimes I just forego the herbs because I don’t have any on hand or I only need like 1 tsp and it’s not worth it to buy a whole bunch just for that. I also think it would be nice to have fresh herbs on hand! The only problem I have with these is it looks extremely small. The box itself is small and supposed to hold 4 pots so I could tell what size it would be. In the picture it looks like it’s so much and so big but I know things like these are very good at advertising themselves to be much better than they really are. The most tempting thing about buying this for me was I saw them at Target yesterday marked down to 7 bucks!!! The list price is 30 bucks! Then again, if something is marked down that much…that’s a bad sign right? :P
