    Yes, you are so right!! There are definitely things that I had in my past that I would save up for a “special occasion” and would never use! For me a big thing would be recipes! I’d find recipes that I want to try but figured I would wait for a special meal to try them. And I still haven’t tried most of them! I am definitely going to try a new recipe this week! I also find that something I spend a little more money on (a nice article of clothing for example) will end up sitting in the closet waiting for a special occasion that never comes. It’s such a waste!

      Oooh, that’s a good one! I have a stack of recipes I haven’t gotten around to making yet. Thanks for the reminder!

    I used to be a happiness hoarder with several things but no longer! Even things like underwear I wouldn’t use, saving it for that special occasion that never came along. It feels great to use things I have without waiting and you’re so right, it makes you happier!

      Good for you, Molly! I wear fancy underwear for no reason, and it totally makes me happier! 🙂
