Yonuh, your post made me laugh. My husband grew up very poor and always hungry. When we first met, I only ever kept a few groceries in the apartment, because I just didn't eat much in those days. So it was quite disconcerting when he kept buying LARGE quantities of EVERYTHING, from TP and dish soap to beans and pasta sauce! I had to finally give in and let him because it was such an obsession with him to have 'enough' food in the house.

When we were house-hunting in 2000, we walked into this one and simply because it had TWO pantries, we bought it right then and there. Both pantries are so overflowing with food that if we did have any kind of emergency situation, we'd be able to feed the entire neighbourhood for 2-3 weeks!

(That was how we negotiated the issue - my condition was that if there ever WAS an emergency, we wouldn't hoard it, we'd have to share it with our neighbours)

Hey there, I am a Avon Lady too !!! There is always something new that I want to buy. With our discounts the price is right. I love buying skin care and jewelry.

Oh my god!!! I am so art supply addicted! I had my husband build a rustic armoire so I could house all my stuff, however I made one mistake, making it too deep so by the time I find what I want, I've found four other art things I wanted to work on. I've got clay, ceramic, air dry, plastic and paper; paints, I've got oil, acrylic, water; I've got chalk, pastels, oil pastels, ceramic paint, every kind of paper, jars full of brushes, scrapbook paper, home made paper, paper on rolls, paper from magazines. I've got brown paper sacks that I use to draw on, I've got paper, gourds, canvas, old windows, old wood, scissors, cutters, pasta rollers, cut outs, beads from every place I go, beads I can make......oh and don't even talk about fabric, TUBS and that is what I've kept after I've Freecycled lots, and sewing machines, count 'em, three........that's enough, any more and you'll all think I'm WAY scary.

Hi there MarshaPet, I buy Avon quite often. Use to sell it when I was a senior in highschool, door to door. Takes a real saleswoman to be successful now with all the competition out there, but its hard to beat the Avon guarantee and the quality is good too...

You know I'm going to say shoes but honestly, I've been trying really hard to not buy any.

Books. I have five waiting to be read. All different genres.

Dianne, I thought of you yesterday. I was BROWSING with no intention of buying anything. I was FORCED to go down the shoe aisle because other customers and employees were blocking every other aisle (that's the truth). To avoid temptation, I deliberately chose the aisle with shoes two sizes smaller than my feet. BUT, this pair of sandals literally jumped out at me. Now, I'm not normally a shoe-impulse buyer, but these were gorgeous. Perfect fit, and perfect for traveling - light, dressy, go with everything. So I didn't even hesitate, threw them in the basket - and loved that I just did it without talking myself out of buying them. That's partly your influence on me - a GOOD influence, because I rarely allow such extravagant spending on myself - but it felt good, and the shoes look wonderful, and so I thank you for sharing your shoe-thing here, because I like the difference you've made in my life.

Kate, me also. Whenever I visit Toronto (I used to live there), I seem to buy a stack of art supplies, because there's more choice and competitive prices compared..to Vancouver. Wierd since there are alot of artists living on the west coast.

I feel guilty...juicy hunks of oil paints, block paints, ...waiting to be used.
