I am a sucker for fads and trends.
I know that they do not last long, and they are not usually worth the money.
Even though I know these things, I still make the mistake of falling for them quite often. My mom was the same way, so I think that I got it from her. I am part of a mom club at our church, and right now there is a trend going around about air purifiers. It all started with one mom who heard from a friend that the pollutants in the air of our homes is what is making our children sick. The news quickly spread around our group, and now everyone is talking about air purifiers and the need for them. It is almost like a sin if you do not have an air purifier for your home. Although I do not think air purifiers are as necessary as they are making them sound, I do think that it is a good idea to have one in my house, so I bought one. I looked online to find one that had good reviews. I bought it and had it shipped to my house. It was delivered to my house when I was not home, so they left it on my porch. I got home that night, and it was dark so I did not see the air purifier. I opened the door quickly, and the door hit the air purifier and knocked it off of the porch. I quickly opened the box and found that it had broken into several pieces. I was so upset. I did not even get to try it out before it broke. I emailed the company, so I am hoping that they will send me a new one.
