I use to collect Beanie Babies – LOL! I was so stupid over them. I had to have 2 of each. My poor husband. That was one of the only times I ever got out of control while
hoarding “collecting”. It became my obsession. I even had a curio cabinet for them.
These days I’m more chill as I realized it was just an unhealthy habit. I had to step away from the persistent call of the Beanies. When I sold them all in a garage sale, I felt as though a noose was released from around my neck. I was a hardcore collector. Even found one in my neighbors garage sale and sold it for her for $400- it was a rare bear.
They are cute, don’t get me wrong- but I was OCD about the collection and it wasn’t right. They had to go. Once gone, what a relief!
These days I collect owls; any owl- a tiny glass one, metal ones, wooden owls – whatever I find at a garage sale or whatever a friend/family member gives to me for a present and I cherish them. I’ve always had an affinity for owls.
I collect vintage Strawberry Shortcake Dolls and accessories. Again, whatever I find at a garage sale is all. I use to bid on them on ebay until I realized I was starting to do the same thing as with the Beanie Babies.
