Car Booty

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else caught the Car Booty show on daytime BBC. The premise appears to be, sell off all that crap you collected during your credit card addiction phaze to pay for your home improvements. The market value of the items proves what a load of rubbish and hype the last 5 years have been, but hell... Its a bit down market yet, but I am waiting for a classier evening television version.

LOL, I haven't seen it but I can imagine it.

"Convert your unwanted junk into HARD CASH!!!"

Reality:

"Convert £1000 worth of full-priced DVDs you watched once into £100, by selling them for £1 each."

Not quite the same ring to it.

I have to admit that I'm a bit of a hoarder where books are concerned but I'm glad the people on the car boots aren't. They're selling 8 quid books for 20-50p. :)))

My god so close... but for the detail... it was actually convert an almost brand new £150 digital camera (with software still in plastic) into £5.

You can save £10 per month by not paying salaries of those BBC morons who make these ridiculous programmes.

If I could just give up the BBC and get the rest for free I would be happy. I still don't understand why we have to pay for television liscences to keep the BBC independant when the guys that work there can't even make speeches without getting into trouble for offending whichever ruling junta it is this week.

Yes. It's a great way to find all those old 'gems' that you somehow missed. I got Treasure Island and Little Women for 5p each recently.

It’s a shame television entertainment is flooded with docusoaps and pawn shop shows.

I was concerned when in one a pensioner was encouraged to sell a fine piece of art to pay his council tax. Another where a mother was selling a personal treasure so she could pay for her lazy ars*d son to go on holiday.

Irresponsible.

In a nutshell!

However, this is the cornerstone of the economy-retail.

V-sad.
