I know, it sounds like a great problem to have, right? She buys things off of Craigslist all the time. Some weeks she buys 3 or 4 things. Ususally it is furniture. I live in a small house with my husband and our two little boys.
If I turn down the things she buys she gets really offended and goes on and on about what a great deal it was and how she went to a lot of trouble to get it for me. Basically sending me on a guilt trip to take it. Than she turns around and tells everyone how I am ungreatful because I wasn't appreciative, or I wasn't appreciative enough. My sisters have told me some of the mean things she has said about me and my husband. I am the only grown child who lives close to my parents.
We just don't have enough room for many of the things she buys us. Also she will sometimes get cheap, ugly things that don't fit with our house at all. When she visits she looks for the things she bought us.
