So #3 on my 101 things about myself… I buy almost everything in twos. Weird? You’ve got that right. I don’t know if it is a form of OCD. But for whatever reason, I keep buying in twos.
I own two of the same tennis shoes… two of the same yoga mats… two of the same sandal wedges. Did I need two? Probably not but it’s hard to tell myself to put it down. Every time I have a dilemma of buying something in a pair, I always ask myself do I need BOTH? The answer is always yes. But in reality, I know it’s not justifiable.
This is why I wonder if I have some kind of disorder. Yesterday, I was going to buy two of the same sandals… only different colors and then two of the same linen jackets… one in red and the other in blue. Did I buy all four? No… I bought the red jacket, but for the life of me… I HAD to buy both the sandals.
When it comes to clothes, I absolutely do the same thing. I justify it as if it fits me well, I want two of them in different colors because it is kind of hard to find something that I like. It’s not logical, I know. And yes, it kills my wallet. Which is why I try to not buy anything at all if I can.
Another thing that I do is buy in bulk. Which isn’t always a bad thing. It keeps me from having to buy things constantly. So I see that as a plus. Did I really need a bag of a 1000 cotton swabs… maybe not, but I know that that is one thing I won’t have to buy for a while. Same with the huge bottle of hand sanitizer that is sitting in our bathroom.
What weird habits do you have?
