hoarder (plural hoarders)
1.One who hoards; one who accumulates, collects, and stores.
Welpers, in trying to find a space for my bpals when I placed the order awhile ago AND after watching the show "Hoarders" I'm going to admit I have a slight problem :)
I lurrrrve lotions and beauty products in general but when a product smells off I will chuck it, but I noticed I keep some useless shit!
Price tags from clothes I got on sale on my nightstand. I'll toss those, but I should have gotten rid of them in the first place.
The extra buttons that come with clothes. I usually chuck those on the nightstand too. I don't even remember what I wear that HAS buttons...
I have an entire frikkin rubbermaid container FULL of t-shirts that no longer fit me, that I keep "just in case"
It really is full, it's the one on the bottom because it couldn't close right so I had to stack one full of blankets on top of it, and a tv on top of that!
I have some perfumes that I've had since I was 12. I wore Candies everyday back then and I still didn't go through a whole bottle so I don't know why I keep buying more bottles of other perfumes besides the fact that "IT PRETTY MUST HAVE!"
The little bag hanging off the shelf is FULL of perfume samples that I've gotten as gwp or presents or avon.
I need to organize that shelf or the glass is going to frikkin shatter.
Also scrapbook stuff is my weakness. More specific, the pretty papers you can get!
I started that maybe 3 years ago and I've only done 2 pages :( I'm bad at never printing my pictures or the pictures I take aren't worth printing.
My first colour of nail polish was this neon pink my mom bought me when I was 5ish, I still remember it, it had a white lid! So I'm really good at painting both hands even by now, I've had almost 20 yrs practice :D Some bottles where the colour sucked have gotten chucked in the past years but this is what I have today hoarded away (my poor Just Groovy blue is separated!)
The box doesn't contain my Chrome nail polishes, my China Glaze Kaleidoscope collections or my glittery/special effects top coat polishes. Those are in a box in my closet somewhere from when I moved.
And now for the stuff I'm super running out of space for, BATH PRODUCTS! Is it wrong to always want to smell nice? I had to get a rolly cart thingy to hold stuff that wouldn't fit in the closet. Here be mah cart!
The size of it: (I dunno just compare it to my toilet paper! :D
The top 2 shelves hold some of my Lush stuff. I could probably make a killing with the discontinued bath bombs and melts on ebay. But I won't. Then I can'ts smells thems!
And the big pretty space on the counter needed to be cluttered up:
More Lush in the green box! mmmm Lush.
Under the sink isn't safe:
What's in the Lush bag...MOAR LUSH
After I lived in this apartment for maybe 5 months I noticed a secret drawer for me to jam more shit into!
It was painted shut the first time I tried to open it so I thought the line was just for show and then a few weeks later it was bugging me so I went under the sink and saw that YEAH IT REALLY WAS A DRAWER! I can't believe it took me so long to notice it though. Silly me. Must be the chemicals to my brain.
You'd think that with all the stuff tucked away my tub would look bare. WRONGO. Here's my corner :s
I want one of those racks that hang off of the shower head but I can see that going horribly wrong. Avon's shower gels come in the neat hook shape so when a shower gel runs out I will rinse and refill it with something else. At one point I had 9 of these hanging. Pretty sad I know. I also realized the older, more opaque bottles from like 2003 held the product better. These newer bottles suck ass, when it gets warm, the showel gel leaks out of the lid. Stupid me went on a clutter removal last summer and accidently tossed the older style bottles because they were close to empty :sadface
And I thought that was the extent of mah junk but almost forgot to show you the closet in my bathroom. This also holds my backups (hair dyes, toothpastes, deodorants, toothbrushes, essential stuff, yes hair dye is totally essential)
The bottom shelf just hold towels and a couple of things so here be my scary other 3:
And what hoarding post wouldn't be complete without a current state of makeup shot:
That's the majority of my junk/beauty product obsession. I don't collect weird shit like the lady on tv who refused to toss a moldy pumpkin or the guy who had tax books from the 80's or the people who have piles and piles of random shit blocking EVERYWHERE.
I'm not a total crazy person, if a fire happens I will be able to make my way to the front door obstacle free. With my train case in hand of course...
