random thursday - things I hoard

hey hey hey!

I am so excited to be co hosting this week with Lin and Em!

check out how amazing this new button is.. Lin is one talented lady.

alright let's get right into it!  this weeks topic...

tooooo much crap!!
I hate throwing crap out.

sample products.  I've signed up for a few different beauty boxes over the past couple years and even the super shitty products I get I hate throwing them out.  they always send high end shit so I feel like I will miss out on something if I throw it out!

yarn.  everytime I see a cute yarn I always think of a million different things I could make with it and I usually never end up making anything.
or I make something with it and have a tiny little ball out but for some reason I always save it.
what if I need to make a tiny hat someday...

wine bottles.  random I know but I plan on someday eventually making my own wine.  you know how you can go into a store and make your own wine and basically you give them 50 bucks and they do everything for you and you get a butt ton of wine?  that's what I wanna do.
I love wine and it works out to be like 4 bucks a bottle.  can't go wrong.

clothes.  every couple years my mom will go through all my clothes with me and force me to throw away/donate as much as possible.
I hate doing it and I always think that I will someday NEED that certain shirt.  even if I haven't worn it since high school.

nail polish.  been pretty obsessed with it probably for about two years now.  I don't buy expensive stuff though.  I have one OPI and only because it was a gift.  the rest are all under 3 bucks max.

make sure link up below and sign up for the weekly newsletters!
I will leave you this fantastic picture of every dogs dream

happy thursday!

I have a problem with clothes too! For the past few years I've been trying to go through them at least once, and usually manage a few sack of clothes but I still hold on to things from like 10 years ago that would never, ever fit me again!

My husband tells me if it wasn't for him I'd hoard everything.

He's right.

I'm guilty of the clothes thing too. I've finally realized I need to start getting rid of clothes or I can't buy any more because our closet is so small, and since I'm not willing to give up shopping...sigh...weeding through it is.

As awful as it is to keep all those little samples, they've saved me so many times when I'm out of shampoo or deodorant. No stinky mess up in here.

I used to just toss out the left over yarn but now that Ive realized how expensive it can get I'm saving every bit of it. Needless to say, the hubs hates it and I cant blame him. Nail polish is rad, especially the expensive kind but only when it's a gift haha. I stick to the kind that's under $3 too.

Thanks for hosting, dear! You rock! So exciting!
I absolutely know how you feel about giving away clothes! I hate it too!
And I would love to taste your wine! :)

Clothes...ugh. I HATE getting rid of clothes. Even if they don't fit anymore or are riddles with holes I have on to them...just in case.

Argh! I too hoard yarn! I forgot to mention that one! I too have a bunch of samples! they sit right next to my sample dental flosses! Ha!

Come to think of it now, I also hoard product samples. There's a whole box of them under my bed.

I also like to "collect" nail polishes but I have come up with a rule that if one goes in, one must come out. So every time I want to buy a new one, I have to get rid of an old one. This also applies to clothes, shoes and bags.

Thanks for co-hosting this week.

Oh man...I totally hoard yarn too. In fact, I have an entire shelf full of yarn right behind me (and oddly, one sitting on the couch next to me...I'm not really sure how it got there...but it's there...haha)

I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award over at my blog. You can come pick up your pretty award here!

Have a great weekend!

haha--I consider myself fairly good at getting rid of clothes...old makeup on the other hand, I struggle to throw out. I should really get better at that!
