I used to spend a fortune on them. And I always bought two of them. One I would use to cut out the fashions I liked and the other to save. Back then I still read Essence magazine and would collect them. I had years of issues of Essence magazines.
Throughout my life I have had other things I liked to collect; like fridge magnets from places I have visited, airline ticket jackets and luggage tags, and radio station stickers from all over the world.
I collected the airline stuff when I worked for an airline; I had tags from airlines all over the world. I still collect radio station stickers. I have them from all over; Italy, France, Canada, even Syria and Iran. I began collecting those when I worked in radio.
I also collect (don't laugh) Sasha Bratz dolls. I love them and have about 7 now. I also have a few Scary Spice dolls and 3 WNBA dolls. I started collected dolls about three years ago.
I don't know why I collect stuff. I just enjoy it. I enjoy finding the stuff and displaying it. I wouldn't say collecting is an obsession but I do really get into it.
Do you collect anything?
If so have you ever thought about why you collect?
