Ok, I am determined to have fun here and it doesn't take much to amuse me.(obviously) Stopped at Big Lots while I was out today. This is one of my favorite places to shop and I found two items that I just cannot resist. A bargain on socks and a pretty pen. These are two of my vices. When I die my girls will never have to buy pens again and you would not believe how many socks I have. So fess up ladies and gents, what are your weaknesses?

That's why I have a kindle. I keep downloading those books. There's always something waiting for me to read.

i love my kindle, have had it for about 2 or 3 years now. Amazon is great too, any time anything has gone wrong with it I call them and they either walk me through the problem or they have replaced it for me free of charge. I need to buy a new power cord for it as my kitten thought it was a toy and chewed through it LOL.

Fabric and thread…even though the walls and shelves of my sewing room are literally bulging with supplies, I never seem to have just the right fabric or right color thread. My husband would choke if he knew how much money I've got tied up in my sewing stuff!

I like bourbon and tequila. Definitely a weakness, especially if they are "fine" or "rare".

I love notebooks, I bought a case of cheapie notebooks once when they were on sale for going back to school, and that got me started. Now when I see fun notebooks I can't resist buying them. The funny thing is, I do all my lists, and journals and such either on my smart phone or online, so almost never use notebook paper. I just have stacks of notebooks. If anyone ever says "do you have any paper" I say "oh yes, plenty". HUGS, Heidi

OK—I guess I get the honor of being different. I LOVE FLASHLIGHTS. Big ones, little ones, odd shaped ones—doesn't matter. If it is a flashlight, I want it.

Hi. SUE,
Ok, I'll play! I usually don't own up to this but
I love kitchen things. From silverware and dishes to tablecloths
and napkins for all occasions. I can't remember when it started, it just evolved. I love shiney new pots and pans. I love, just love kitchen things.

Place mats and napkins and tablecloths for all occasions. I don't have a formal dining room anymore, it's too small for our growing family so we turned it into an office. Now, we get out the fold up banquet tables and folding chairs. It doesn't sound very festive but I have learned that with a nice tablecloth and inexpensive chair covers I can set a gorgeous and inviting table for holidays. But I also like to use fun place mats and festive paper napkins for every day in our breakfast nook where we enjoy most meals. So I am always on the lookout for fun and colorful napkins and place mats to add to my collection.

Boxes. Little boxes of all kinds and shapes. I have hand painted ones, ones with what is called a "nut bug" in it. I have them from all over the world and even some that are hand made by me. I don't know why I like little compartments with little surprises. I was crazy for Harmony Kingdom boxes that look like animals for years (back when I made good money, LOL) They have to talk to me before I buy them and I love them as gifts from friends. I have not had funds for such vices for a long long time, but the ones I have bring smiles to my face, as each one has a memory attached to it.

Ok, I will bite.. My weakness is purses. My husband says I have enough purses to change every day and not use one twice in a year. Ha!! I do have a lot of purses but not that many. LOL

Oh, I forgot.. shoes. I love shoe shopping, but finances prohibit now. Still have a nice collection of Crocs though. Bought them when I was still working.
