Random things you buy/collect

The "what to do with baby shower gift bags" post sparked my weird gift bag obession.

So yes, I like to buy gift bags. The Dollar Tree is a weakness. You can buy all kinds of sizes and styles there for only $1. I just stock up on cute ones, even when I have no event to give for! The Dollar Zone at Target, clearance after the holidays. I have huge ones, small ones, cute shaped ones, wine bottle ones, holidays, weddings, birthdays, baby showers, wedding showers, colorful, floral...anything! But the biggest problem is.....I hate actually giving away the really cute onees, lol.

So what about you? Is there anything you randomly buy and/or collect?

Magic the gathering cards and random comic book paraphernalia. I have huge collections of both. I save gift bags that people give gifts in if they are in good condition and use them to give gifts in. I'm cheap like that ;)

 Do movies count? We have a ton of movies.

 Doesn't everyone do that?

Sure!

We used to buy a lot of movies back when Blockbuster existed. They'd have tables of movies they'd sell 4/$20 (sometimes 5/$20). They were all the leftover ones when they got a whole bunch in for brand new movies then downsized after a few weeks.

Antiques. Usually jewelry, but I'll buy just about anything that catches my eye.
