I will admit, I have some hoarding tendencies. I don’t know why I decide that one day, I need to buy more of ….. But why? When you have to use storage bins to store your collection of sunglasses, then it might be a problem. So when I had my big weekend of cleaning, I really discovered all of the things that I’ve been “collecting” over the years.
1. Nail polish
For a while there I would buy a new nail polish every time I went to Target, which seemed like once a week. That adds up! I even gave a third of my collection to my sister when I moved out and I still have an entire bin full! I need one of those wall units like the nail salons have! Here are a few of my favorites:
I used to be very much into those $10 sunglasses or the 2 for $15 sales. I always participated in those. A couple years ago I got my first pair of Oakleys and it changed my life so I haven’t done this in awhile. But I have an entire container full of sunglasses. I was obsessed. And I’ve kept every single pair. To this day.
3. Ear Warmers
My favorite wintertime accessory. Although, now I have so many that it’s hard to pick just one! So whenever I pack for out of town trips, I always pack like 5 or 6. I want to make sure I have options!
4. Baseball Hats
I honestly buy hats all the time. Almost everywhere I go. But I don’t like to wear hats everyday. So it’s literally a collection of 20 hats for one day a month basically. I guess I should start wearing more hats…but sometimes when that good hair day is a good hair day, you’ve got to flaunt it!
For whatever reason, I’m addicted to buying glassware. Yes, I know just how incredibly weird that sounds. But for real! Big beer glasses, to mason jars; pint glasses, wine glasses, champagne glasses, margarita glasses….okay, help. I think it’s a problem.
What about you guys? Do any of you collect anything obsessively without realizing it? Or realize it, but do it anyway?
