I HATE HOME PARTIES! (And I really don't like to use that word hate often...) Here's the thing. I know that these sweet women are trying to make their fortune out in the world. I know they got conned by the companies on promises of grandeur and easy lifestyles. I am sure that there are many successful Mary Kay and Tupperware ladies in the world... BUT I just can't stand the parties.
Everyone always says, "You absolutely do not have to buy a thing. Just come to my fun little party." And you go, and you try so hard NOT to buy anything. You think about how nice everything looks but how much cheaper you could get it on CLEARANCE at Ross' or Marshalls!
You think about how your stinking bank account is at $3! You think about how your 401K lost $20,000 in the last year. You think about how your kid can't be in acting class this semester because you are so broke...and then, you succomb to the guilt.
You find the cheapest (but coolest thing) in the magazine. You take the little pen and you fill in your information. Your stomach sinks because you know you really should be buying a tank of gas with that $31. You squash your guilt and hand the order form to the cosultant while grabbing some delicious snacks.
She gives it back.
$31 for some pretty vases. $12 for the shipping?!?!?!?!? What can you do?
I would like to end this post by inviting you to my OWN delightful Southern Home Living Party! Please come! AND, please, please, PLEASE don't feel like you have to buy a thing. Wink.
If you host these parties (or any other) please don't take offense. This is just my perspective. I have gone to MANY parties and I ALWAYS have fun with my friends that are at the parties. I LOVE the food. I usually even like the products. I'm just cheap! Good luck with your business : )!
PLEASE KEEP PRAYING FOR QUINCE!
