5. My older sister shops that way. She has a four bedroom place and about 4 storage units.
She thinks she is a bargain hunter.

The last time I helped her move, I saw--wait for it--unused PAPER coasters that I remembered seeing when she was a newlywed. And that is just one example. Some of the dinnerware that she bought while on her honeymoon is still wrapped in the original papers it was first packed in to ship to her.

I tried to tell her that, even spending a dollar on each item means a thousand dollars for a thousand items. Not to mention the moving costs and storage costs and human costs she has expended on all this over her lifetime.

However, denial seems to be her middle name.
