Lol unfortunately it’s in my office, next to my bob ross bobble head. We have a curiousity shop down the street from where we live. Some pretty amazing, but useless stuff!

This thing:


It was like $1 for 4 different ones, so I couldn’t help myself. Still a dollar I could’ve spent on Ice-cream…

I wouldn’t want to make everyone else feel bad about themselves.

I bought this giant package of googley eyes. I didn’t have a specific use in mind, but summer was coming and the kids are home and want to do crafts. But now I’ve misplaced it since it arrived last week- so I have 1000 google eyes sitting somewhere. It’s driving me nuts. I thought about ordering another pack but 2000 googley eyes just seems extreme.

Probably an expensive hand crank coffee grinder that mounts to your wall. Bought it on sale (thought I was getting an awesome deal) for hubby who has taken a liking to his new percolator. Turns out it’s just for decoration and not actually functional lol. It costs more to return than I paid for it so in a yardsale box it goes.

I have a THING for indie perfumes.  I follow a bunch of them on facebook, I belong to a subreddit, the whole deal.  Logically, I know I have enough perfume to last for the next three years if not more, in every possible permutation of scents I like (gourmands, florals, atmospherics).  But whenever a new limited edition from a house I love comes up, I can find a way to justify having it – sure I have four pear scents already but they aren’t SPICED ANJOU PEAR!!!  What will I do on the days when only smelling like a spiced anjou pear will do!

A pack of swaddles for my daughter who screams her head off if you try to put them on her.

I’m sitting here trying to list one useless thing… I can think of absolutely nothing, wow man. Money must be really tight for me. I haven’t bought anything that doesn’t absolutely serve a purpose in a long while.

An avocado slicer. What was I thinking? Who can’t cut up an avocado just with a knife? So dumb…

So here it is.

So tight on the left that the side pockets are open, and the other pic is just one size up but so much more loose. 

And yes I forgot to do up my zip in the second pic.

kiram :  that actually looks super useful to me! My charging cord always falls off my nightstand when my phone’s not plugged into it. Where’d you get it?

@socalgirl1689 – that’s cute! Can you put paperclips or something in it and keep it on your office desk?
