I’m jacket/coat whore and foot wear as well. I have more jackets and coats than I could ever wear. I just ordered 2 more from OR last month. And shoes/boots.....it’s ridiculous. I have light weight trail runners all the way up to heavy duty Lowa and Crispi hunting boots......and many in between. As far as gym shoes, shit I have probably 15 pair right now. Some haven’t even been out of the box. Just got 2 more pair in the mail last night (sale at Left Lane Sports). Yeah, I’d say I have some issues. I think buying stuff temporarily fills a void I have in me. Never lasts though, thus the continued buying and searching for something new.
I feel you on "filling the void" I think a large part of it is that I grew up super poor and was ashamed because of it, now I'm relatively successful so I think I buy things to compensate for being broke as a kid.
I grew up the same way.....very poor and ashamed of myself because of what so many others had that I didn't. I think that is what has driven me to become what I am today and never settle.......for anything. As Ive gotten older, I don't see this as such a good thing the way I once did. Its cost me a lot, not just financially.
How is nobody asking why its in a nightstand...Doe urine. Walmart clears it every spring and I feel compelled to stock up. If i die and my wife clears that middle drawer on my night stand, she will either be disgusted or impressed with one of the premier collections of deer urine in the state of KS.
