I saw this video on Facebook and immediately thought; "I NEED THIS NOW!" Then, I looked up the cost and thought twice. Maybe I'm just cheap, but I want to know what you think.


Please allow me to introduce you to every woman's new best friend, the Critter Catcher, a.k.a the spider catcher...



Spiders and other nasty critters in my home give me the willies, so, to me, this is like the best invention ever. Although, I must admit that if I owned this "critter catcher" the caught trespassers would only be carried far enough outside to be smashed under my foot. (Shame on me, I know.)

Of course I had to check out mycrittercatcher.com immediately to see how much this handy tool would set me back, only to have my excitement squashed a little. You can get one Critter Catcher for $16.95 plus S&H (which is $6.95), or two Critter Catchers for the low, low price of $29.95 plus S&H.

It's not a bad price for a device that will keep nasty bug guts off your walls, or avoid the inevitable, "Oh crap, I dropped it, now where did it go" dance when attempting to catch a critter with a tissue, but I can't help but hesitate reaching for my credit card. After all, I do have a bug-squashing husband at home who doesn't freak out when a spider invades our territory.

What do you think? Am I just too cheap, or do you think this is a bit too much to spend on a kitchen brush with a handle?
