I am waiting, as I type this, for him to find the 3 additional munchkin teethers that arrived today. Aiven liked the first one so much, that I though it would be best to have some extras (one for the nursery, one for the bedroom, one for the living room and one for the diaper bag). I don't think he will find it very funny though.
We "misplace" things. Often.
Like pacifiers. I bought 8 pacifiers about 2 weeks ago. 8!!! That was after the 15 or so I have bought since Aiven was born. They just go missing. I did, however, find 6 under the bed yesterday. I have no idea how they got there. Aiven is certainly not tossing them there from the co-sleeper. Then again, maybe he is.
I stockpile other things too. Paper goods. Toilet paper, paper towels and kleenex. A couple times now, we have been at Costco and I have told Alex that we needed one of the aforementioned items only to come home and find unopened mega-packs of the item in a closet somewhere. I once acquired 40 rolls of paper towel. I was 3 months pregnant then, so I chalked it up to pregnancy brain.
I stockpile small bills. I have a $5 or $10 bill in pockets of jackets, pockets of bags, my kindle case, you name it. Because, it is not always convenient to get to my wallet. So, I like to have a couple dollars easily accessible. I don't consider this stockpiling. My husband does though.
He likes a certain, hard to find toothpaste. So, when I found it, I bought 15 tubes of it. Of course, 2 months later, he decided he liked my toothpaste better. Stockpiling did not work in my favor that time.
My latest obsession. Pregnancy tests. We are trying to have another baby and the pregnancy tests in the drugstores are very expensive. Especially, with my OCD, it can get VERY expensive. I found some strips online. 25 for $5!!!! I bought 50.
Wondfo Pregnancy Test Strips, 25-count
Honestly, I never realized I had this obsession until my wonderful husband pointed it out. I think I would have preferred to be oblivious to this trait.
What, if anything, do you stockpile?
