I like to collect random things. I'm sure there are lots of you out there that do. There are the handful of things I've collected forever like my shot glasses or postcards, but then there is that other category of the things that I collect for a while until I get my fill.
This summer I've noticed all my flashlights have disappeared (I have three short culprits in this house who I'm pointing my finger at). I used to have three in my purse and at least one or two on my nightstand. You think thats silly? I'll tell ya what though I used those flashlights ALL the time. Like once when this cute little 10 year old in front of me at the movie theater with her friends lost her ring. Wala! I had my flashlight. I've been trying to gather more but it's been a slow process. I've now acquired two, but I think I need at least two more.
One other random thing is that this year I've been given three water bottles (one as a gift, one I won at my family reunion and one that came with a gym bag I won online). Add those to the one I've had for over 4 years (the one they give you in the hospital when you have a baby, I just love how big it is) and the one I saw at the store and just had to have and now, hopefully, I'll never go thirsty. I love having a variety though because then I can grab one that fits my mood (handle, top/drink feature, decoration, size).
Tell Me: Do you collect things for a time? What are some of your collections?
I collect pens. It's been a long term collection, however. I do go through phases where I collect other things (or hoard them, as my hubby would lovingly call it). Right now it's lipgloss and chapstick.
I can't do those kind of water bottles. I have tried. It just goes against my nature to try to save the earth, and not use packaged bottled water.
Collections... hummm... ever since we got married and went on our honeymoon I collect shells from the beaches we visit. we haven't gone to a beach in a really long time though.
And books? does that count? Ha! I'm not a big collector. Ever since my moms stroke she started hording stuff and I swear I'll never end up like that so I clean out, clean out, clean out. Scott's the collector/hoarder of our family.
I collect weight, mostly. Sometimes in the middle or the back end. I seem to find it everywhere!
I collect clothes:)
Currently, I have 3 kitchen tables. I think I collect furniture. And fabric...I have loads of fabric.
When I was young I collected postcards and porcelain animal figurines.
I don't know if this counts as a collection... For about a month I thought I was out of oregano so every time I went to the grocery store I'd pick up a new thing of oregano. Then one day I opened my cupboard and realized that I had four unopened containers of oregano plus one that was only half used. Turns out, I was out of basil the whole time!
Maybe it's time to start collecting brain cells.
I collect unfinished projects...
Seriously though, I've started a small frame collection of vacation places. I always want to buy something on vacation, but it's hard to think of liking something I buy just for the sake of buying it. This way at least I can put a cute picture in it from the vacation to remember.
