I have a confession. I may have a serious addiction to reusable bottles. Over the past several years I have managed to collect quite a few water bottles. I have a cabinet in my kitchen stuffed with probably a dozen various bottles; mostly stainless steel. There are some huge ones, some medium ones and some kids sized ones. Well now my addictions is growing. I have expanded from water bottles to include travel coffee mugs as well. About a month ago I received a Klout Perk to The Clymb, a daily deal site for outdoor gear. I had a $50 credit to spend and instead of maybe a backpack or some clothes I chose to spend it all on a deal for Aladdin bottles and mugs. Wait, I should change that to we because my husband was really excited about picking out a new travel coffee mug.
Yup, that is seven new pieces to add to our collection. In my defense, two of those (far right) were gifts for my mom and step-dad. But the remaining five are all ours. The three purple on the left are for me: an insulated plastic cup for my iced coffee and Frappucinos, a tall water bottle with a cap that doubles as a cup (how cool!!) and a hot coffee mug. The fact that they have purple accents makes me smile. But now my bottle/mug collection has spread to a second cabinet. I think I need an intervention.
Is there anything that you keep buying a lot of even though you probably don't need them?
