Expensive electronics and camera equipment. Luckily, I haven’t gone too far down the rabbit hole, but it’s starting to build up, and I can see how it might become a problem unless I start getting something out of it.
Anything German Shepherd. High end (so far) was 18k gold pendant with diamond eye chip. Low end plastic figurines at Dollar store, spray with urethane and use as container garden decor. Back in the day EBay was my bane. I did a search for GSD and fell down the hole…
Kitchen gadgets, old cookbooks, and knitting/crochet/sewing stuff. My husband bought me every pasta making gadget for my kitchenaid for birthdays and christmas til i had them all then started buying stuff like a joule sous vide stick, an electric kettle, a professional stick blender, and half a dozen other lovely gadgets. I also have about 300 cookbooks from the 40s to the 80s.
@naropa@sammydog01 oh yes I have pretty baskets filled with yarn but I really should create something. Too bad I can only knit or crochet the basic simple line, nothing else. One can only make so many scarves. And very boring afghans.
Parts for the Challenger. There’s not much more impractical than an old car 'less its an old musclecar that you can’t work on until you retire and move to a place with a real garage so you just buy and store parts for until that hallelujah day!
@duodec oooh, how could I forget to include stuff for my 84 Regal and Camaro, currently gathering dust and crud! The former was my grandmother’s…I really need to get to that!
Had a 73 'Cuda. 340 4 bbl Hearst pistol grip shifter. Copper with black striping. Damn how I miss that car…had to trade it in when it started nickel and diming me and I had to hitchhike to work. Good times in the early 80’s
