Sierra 5: Throwing Pots

I don't know any people that sell MLM's, but that might be because there just aren't that many here? I don't really know tbh (I'm in the Netherlands). I do know that my mom used to have tupperware* when I was growing up, and she still has some of those containers. They are really good quality. However, I would personally not buy from an MLM because I don't want to support their abusive system. 

*My mom did say that she went to a tupperware party sometime in the early 90s, where she bought some containers, but I also remember her buying the tupperware brand in a normal store that sold household items.

Speaking of MLMs, amazon prime is apparently releasing a documentary on lularoe this week. My husband texted me about it so naturally our weekend plans are settled.

We don’t have that in Australia (to my knowledge). I have heard it’s horrific and bankrupts people and sends mouldy stock.

I have never been sucked into an mlm but have friends what were. Lularoe is pretty bad but I think Amway is the WORST. They are so cagey and bizarre in their recruiting they're actually like a cult.

I have a Pampered Chef apple peeler/slicer/corer that I like (although it's secondhand). A friend of mine swears by 31 bags, which I thought seemed pretty sturdy when I used one of hers. And Color Street nails are pretty, though it's expensive, so I've only bought a couple of strips. Generally I try to avoid the MLMs.

I bought Avon for a long time, and I had a friend who sold Lia Sophia so I have a lot of that too.  I liked LS, but  their quality went down a lot in the last year or so before they went out of business.

I have one 31 bag, and I do like it, but it was really expensive so I’ll never buy another one.  

I thought Pampered Chef was meh.  So many of their gadgets do just one thing, and storage is a premium in my tiny kitchen.  IDK if Cutco is mlm, but I have two really nice knives and kitchen shears that I’d rate a hundred times better than PC.  I did buy PC shears, and the hinge somehow got too tight (probably food residue, in hindsight) and they didn’t open and close properly anymore.  And they were spring hinged, so the handles weren’t loops.  The Cutco shears actually come apart so you can clean the blades separately; much better IMO.

My DIL gave me a 31 bag with "Bad Wolf's Knitting" embroidered on it. It's starting to show some wear, but it's been in constant use and dragged all over. Did I mention that I have an amazing DIL?

It didn't really say bad wolf of course.

When my kids were little I joined Discovery  Toys. I really liked their toys but they were expensive!  By joining as a “salesperson” I got their entire starting pack for pretty cheap…like 150 bucks for probably 500 worth of their toys retail. I thought that was a good deal and my kids played with the toys for years. Also I got a massive discount so I could order any other toys I wanted for my kids without paying retail. I was a total toy snob with my kids, everything had to be educational and open ended play 🤣

I would have found Bad Wolf far more hilarious than my name, but that might be my nerd (and deep and abiding love for Rose Tyler) showing.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Silpada.  I admit to loving the jewelry when it first came out and even had a party, if only to score free stuff.  However, most of my Silpada has come from Ebay from former consultants selling off their party demo pieces for a very decent price.  

You can buy Silpada online now but it seems like the quality of the newer pieces has dropped in comparison to the older ones.

Bit late to reply but I think Herbalife is a pretty established MLM here in NL.

Sierra did a sneak peak at what's in her boxes and....the contents kind of don't suck. 🤷‍♀️ It will be interesting to see how much the Not Sucking balances out whatever she's charging. Because it looked like it $20-$40 didn't suck.

IMHO, they are waaaay overpriced. Even for products from small independent businesses. I don't think Sierra's trinket bowls are that impressive.

Yeah, the prices seem insanely high, but then this is the same woman who stuffed cake chunks and frosting into mason jars and sold them in four-packs for $40. And since I can’t stand the taste of coffee, I’d have no interest in the choco-covered espresso beans or the coffee.

I love chocolate espresso beans but I can get them at Aldi for $5 🤣

I definitely would not pay that much for these little boxes but I bet she sells out because there are a lot of people with more money than they know what to do with

What is a “matching market list,” and why is it worth $50 more than a pocketbook?

I assume its just one of those notepads for shopping lists, like this: image.png.4225d8d8a33d2cee3ba84cb46276f37e.png

So Sierra's youngest just turned 2, and she hasn't announced another blessing on the way. Is 2 + years her longest spacing between babies so far?

I think so. Duggar Data has her 2.81 SDs late.

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.

      This first-name-prevalance tool is one of my favorite websites ever. Sadly US-specific but nonetheless fascinating for nerds like me.
