One way I have been trying to cut costs and find more time to spend on more interesting pursuits was to cut the cable television and stop planning my weekly schedule around “favorite” shows. (Read that as non-productive habits.)
No longer are evenings dedicated to American Pickers, Cash in the Attic, Pawn Stars or any of the other pawn shows, anyone stalking storage unit auctions and being obnoxious at estate sales.
I will miss the marathon episode days but life goes on.
National Geographic channel offers up a trash to cash show this July,
a 6 part series, called Flea Man. I ran across a travel blog that mentioned being a participant on this show.
(A fun story in itself.)
I have just learned that Nat Geo pulled the plug on this show, so it may not be aired. ???
For a brief look at the show’s concept, there is a Youtube video.
I am interested to hear your thoughts.
Would you watch this show? Have you seen shows like this?
Would you participate in this type of show?
How realistic do you find this show?
Do you think having cameras affects prices and reactions?
Do you think the “students” on this show will return and duplicate the results?
Flea Man will be airing July 16th on National Geographic channel.
Check your local listings and let us know your thoughts.
I am hoping I may be able to catch at least one episode online.
