Beware of Advertisements!

Advertisements are a multi million business. Televisions, newspapers and magazines need advertisements to support their revenue. All PTCs need advertisements to generate income and to stay in business. Some products that are being advertised are of real value when purchased and used,but to a great many products are mere waste of money. How many times are you taken in by advertisements and purchased a product which you don't really need and end up in one corner of your shelve collecting dust? I lost count of how much money I've wasted buying products I become brainwashed into needing. I end up buying the product that is being advertised without second thought.Before we get caught up in something that is advertised, we must think whether we really need or want it and not what is available. Advertisers fail in their jobs if they cannot win over consumers and in turn we consumers fall victims. We are at the losing end because we buy without really needing the product but are lured into buying products which we can do without. Think about.
