If you’re thinking of renovating your home or if you just enjoy watching Chip and Joanna, you probably watch a lot of HGTV. And we don’t blame you. Who can resist those perfect designs or all those scenes of perfect couples with their perfect pets and perfect kids, shopping for that perfect home? Gazing at that dream world can draw you in and keep you on the couch for hours at a time. But if you know what’s good for you, you’ll stop watching. We’ll tell you why. Here are 10 reasons you should stop watching HGTV.
1. You’ll fuel your shopping addiction
If impulse control isn’t your strong suit, stay away from HGTV. Are you the type of person who buys anything and everything you even remotely want? We suggest you just stick to watching the nightly news. HGTV’s shows are full of beautiful furniture and decorations that aren’t always reasonably priced. And unfortunately, you can buy many of the pieces you see on the show through HGTV Home Design Studio by Bassett. If you want a new HGTV-inspired table for your home, expect to pay close to $4,000.
