I never thought of myself as someone who collects things. I then realized over time there are things I collect either on purpose or completely because I am a hoarder of certain items. Things I collect may seem kind of silly but who cares! I always find it interesting to know what others collect.
Things I Collect
Coffee Table Books: This is the only thing on my list that is something I collect on purpose. In high school my mom gave me a really cool coffee table book. Since then every single Christmas and Birthday I have asked for at least one, if not 5. My favorites are home decor, but I also love ones relating to fashion and style. They are ALL OVER our house (much to Andrew’s dismay) but I love them.
Mugs: This was never on purpose. But any time I see a cute or quippy mug I buy it. My favorite places to snag them are Homegoods and TJ Max. They always have the best deals!
Board Games: Board games are one of my favorite things to do. We have so many and I have been collecting them for years. When we moved in together I actually got rid of a ton of them but I have added more and more to them every single year. My favorites are Apples To Apples and Monopoly.
Butterflies and Owls: I have been collecting decor butterflies and owls since college. For our wedding we were gifted several Baccarat butterflies and they are some of my favorite decor items in our home.
Notebooks: This is NOT on purpose but I can’t help it. Set me loose in Target or Marshalls and I am bound to come home with a cute notebook. I have an entire bin full of them. Can’t stop, won’t stop!
Makeup: As a blogger I get sent a lot of items. At least 3 times a week a box of makeup appears on my porch, so lets just say I have quite the collection of makeup. If it’s an item that doesn’t work for my skin or something I can’t use I either donate it or gift it to friends and family members but I love me some makeup!
See, the things I collect aren’t exciting or crazy but over the years I have noticed patterns.
