I am and have always been a creature of habit. I think it’s a symptom of my OCD, but when I like something, I really like it and I can’t get enough of it and things just like it. I once ate the same tuna fish sandwich (on a baguette with avocado and tomato) everyday for four months. It is a miracle I did not get mercury poisoning.
This obsessive nature applies to my shopping habits. Once something becomes my thing, I am drawn to nothing but that thing for months, weeks, years on end. A newer version of that thing is purchased with the justification that it’s different enough, shinier and just necessary. As a result, I have a lot of multiples. Here are seven things I cannot help but buy even though I already own something just like it.
