I have to start out with a disclaimer because I try my HARDEST not to collect, because it tends to make piles around the house and I am always trying to dejunk to keep my house tidier….
However, there are things I collect, and some things I collect I didn’t even realize I collected but I do.
Here is my list of collections:
When I was dating my husband I had 36 watches!
Keep in mind the most expensive watch I own was a $150 Guess watch…and the cheapest one was a $6 Target watch.
When I was in 5th grade I remember getting a watch where you could switch out the colors around the face of the watch…I loved that watch, and was so careful to keep that watch nice and shiny.
I have always loved watches. The different styles, colors and designs.
And then smart watches were created…and I have given away quite a few of my watches, and yet I have kept a few because…who knows, perhaps my daughters will enjoy my watches one day?
Probably not, but that is my reason for keeping my collection.
PS- My favorite watches until I got my smart watch were my Guess Watches and my Fossil watch. I always hunted for deals on these name brands and rarely paid full price.
If you know me, you know I LOVE to travel.
I love to buy a souvenir from my different trips. I have a wide range of souvenirs, from magnets, to jewelry, to pictures etc.
I just don’t have the heart to discard souvenirs from my many travels because they are so symbolic to me.
3. Old cell phones
I know, this one is weird. And there have been a few phones that I gave away, but I do like to collect them.
My toddlers have an old phone of mine that of course doesn’t work, that they play with all the time.
I guess the history major in me wants to hang on to this technology to show my children the progression of cellphones over time.
I know it’s strange, but I have quite the collection over the years.
Those are my main collections I have in my home.
As mentioned I really try to simplify and discard items that aren’t being used much.
However, I can’t help but collect my certain things.
So now I ask you….what do you collect and why?
I think it’s fun to hear what people enjoy collecting.
Until next time,
