Any hoarders here? What's the worst thing you've done?
I have six pairs of the same trousers (six different colours/patterns) the same jeans in 3 colours, vests/tshirts in every colour they do, and the same dress style in about 5 different fabrics/patterns..... but not the actual same stuff! Not for non-work wear at least.
Shoes last me years and years.... even my go-to ones last 2 years or so. That's at least a decade worth of sandals you've got there!
Not a bad or a good thing as you're clearly very happy just gobsmacked/impressed!
Last summer, I bought one from Payless (non-leather ones) and by the end of the summer, it was really dirty and falling apart.
The pair I'm wearing now, I've just been wearing for maybe a month. I find it very comfortable, and I wear this all the time. I've always wanted a pair but couldn't buy one for the original price ($89 here).
I really actually went crazy. Like I said, I'd probably end up returning most of them. But you know what you're right, they do make me happy.
I have stages like this. I have the same dress also in multiples.
Its fine to buy make up and perfumes in bulk imo. Just take a look at a recent thread about discontinued stuff, especially perfumes. As long as you don't open the make up until you need it, , keep it in dry cool places, not the bathroom, then it's going through last.
Not style and beauty related at all, but I have just bought 11 (yes 11) packets of dried papaya. They are normally 2.99 for a 250 gram packet (which I am extremely addicted too and eat at least 1 packet a week) but they were on sale for 60p so I bought the whole lot in the shop Sell buy date is a year away, I checked.
