I get incredibly uncomfortable if I have too many of the same item and particularly more uncomfortable if those items are opened. For instance two opened containers of milk or two cans of hairspray. That can straight up give me the chilly wills (shivers down my spine) or worse a nervous tick. Also, I like nice things, but I don't like too many of the same thing. I want one hair brush, one pair of flats, one handbag, one olive oil, one baby doll per daughter. If I'm not using something at the moment I feel an excruciating need to give it away or throw it out.
Now there are exceptions to this rule: Collections. Like, books, I believe you can never have too many of those. Calico Critters, art supplies, Legos, by all means fill tubs full with them!
I know what your thinking, "She must have real struggles with conditioner bottles." Your right, I do. Everyone knows that you're going to run out of your shampoo long before your conditioner is empty. This is where my story implodes. I have been buying my kids big bottles of Aussie shampoo and conditioner. 1. Because they have a kangaroo on the bottle, 2. because they have pumps (which means less waste) and 3. because they last forever. Well, they don't "actually" last forever because the other day I had to buy more.
When I got home from the store to re-stock the bathrooms, I was reminded that the conditioners were almost full and I had two more old, almost-full conditioners in the bathroom cupboard. *chilly wills*
Sooo, today when I was at the market I remembered to get one extra shampoo just to balance the scales a bit. Imagine my surprise when I got home and noticed that I had accidentally bought another CONDITIONER!!! Now I have six bottles of conditioner, extreme nausea and a rash.
