Stationary! I can’t resist cute note cards, list pads, or notebooks. In fairness I love snail mail and bullet journal so they get used just not at the rate at which I acquire them lol.

Dog gear (specifically Ruffwear), Lush products and essential oils. 

Does animals count? I have a dog and two cats and emailed a breeder this morning inquiring about future litters.

Body wash.  If I don’t have at least 5 bottles, I find myself in that section at the store.

Skin care! Not so much make-up but definitely skin care–one night I had t be taken to the hospital in the middle of the night.  My husband didn’t leave me until  I was admitted @5:30am, but when he came back the next morning he brought a shopping bag filled with every bottle/jar I had in the bathroom. I’m that hardcore about skin care.  I’ve had such good results with the brand I get antsy if I find I’m down to the last bottle or two I have to order more.

This is boring but I hoard mail…

mostly it’s the fear that if I throw out something I’m going to need it in the future. Also, I don’t own a shredder so I get nervous that just cutting it or ripping it to throw it out won’t be enough.. I file it away and there are just piles of it sitting in a junk cabinet upstairs. I really really need to just throw it out already lol

Tea! I go through phases where I drink a lot of tea (have a mug with me right now!) and I’ll go into David’s Tea and pick up something new or now and then, purchase a set. Well, then I’ll go and not drink tea for four months and start right back up! I must have 15 to 20 types in my house.

Travel size/sample size bottles of products.  It doesn’t help that I like miniature versions of things (“oooh little bottle of X! So cute!”).  I don’t even travel that much, but I see them and I’m like “oh how handy for if I travel!”  And I save them as well.  I have bags of unused travel size products.  And I’m terrified of running out!  

I’m actually making a conscious effort to use up some of the products…it still makes me sad to throw some of it away.

Super weird quirk – but I love water bottles. I have SO many, yet somehow always feel like I don’t have enough! My husband is pretty good about being blunt with me and reminding me that I don’t need another freaking water bottle!

Other than that though I’m actually pretty minimalist and am constantly getting rid of stuff that I don’t want any more.
