Re: Addictions

Ok, my turn, I like old glass bottles, jars with the zinc lids that I use for storing food, servng dessert in, etc. I have several large bottles with attached tops for ice tea....I cannot buy any more....well, unless I break one.

Re: Addictions

Only that if I like a certain tee shirt or pants or shorts, I will buy it in every color!

Coats, jackets, and shoes.  I'm getting better, though, haven't purchased a coat or jacket in three months, but did shoes a few weeks ago that I do not need.  

 

There for awhile I was into high end designer handbags, some new, some I bought in like new condition on ebay.  It was ridiculous since I use the same handbag until it wears out.  The only consolation is I think if I put them on ebay, I may get my money back.  

 

Rather than call my buying habits an addiction, I call myself a collector...sounds better.

@CelticCrafter  YES, this is MY 'addiction' as well Smiley Happy - I go for seconds unanimously and thirds if I really love it.

Re: Addictions

I have an addictive gene, and I find that I move from one thing to another. At one point, it was cookbooks. I take the Fifth as to how many we have.

 

Currently, I amassing a ridiculous number of perfume oils. Just as with the cookbooks, one day I will undoubtedly look back and say WTH.

I was just reading about sharke’s addiction to jackets and realizing that I have an addiction to purchasing vacuum cleaners. I have 12 of them. Some corded and some cordless.  

Does anyone else have a purchasing addiction?


@K9buddy, apparently, you got sucked in.

Re: Addictions

I hoard Corningware pie pans.  I buy them whenever I can find one at thrift stores and garage sales.  I must own a dozen.  And I very seldom make more than one pie at a time!

Well, you can use them for other things!  I’ve had good luck baking Jiffy corn muffin mix in a Fiesta pie pan!  I sometimes fill a pretty pie pan with bananas or apples on my counter.
