Disclaimer: If hoarding is a problem for you, please get help.
I am not a Hoarder, but I do hoard. And I’m not sorry – no apology will be forthcoming, ever. I have things I’ve had for years (read: at least a decade and maybe two) find the perfect use, and I knew that that was the intended purpose and the reason I had added it to my shelves all those years ago. Example: gold thread given to me by Mum, possibly made during the year of our Lord 1979 when I was born, was the absolute perfect color for a Golden Ninja Halloween costume a few years ago. Example: I can’t remember any more off the top of my head but there are oodles of times I have had ‘just the thing’ which turned out to be the perfect thing for the thing. So if you see something, get it!
Case in point: the next school gala is coming up. Last year there was a flower child theme and I made something as usual. This year is a mild 20s theme and I was fully prepared to get sewing, but I don’t need to because of the hoarding! #winning. Yet another affirmation that buying random shit that is gorgeous/will come in handy one day/can easily be put away[smuggled upstairs] until just the right time is the sensible thing to do. I don’t want to give away too much since it’s still a month away but
So buy that dress/skirt/mu-mu or whatever, even if you only do it for the cute frill at the bottom which would look so cute with this idea you’ve got for something else because a) if you wait, someone else will buy it instead; b) you never know [or maybe you do] when it will come in handy;
