    What is it that you buy obsessively, I'm sure everybody has something that they always buy...just in case.

    With mummy Twigge it's tinned tomatoes (I remember once counting 26 tins).
    I seem to have a fondness for types of stationery( pens, paper, files etc)and pants (once counted and I have over 50 pairs)

    Do you have an obsessive buying streak? What is your downfall?

    I always get tins of pilchards when I go into Sainsbury's, whether I need them or now. The 27p ones in tomato sauce. Easy to make a pasta-related meal with and good for the heart too! I seem to have collected quite a few, along with similarly tinned varieties of mackerel and sardines.

    I love the oily fish ;)

    Pens and writing paper - I need to write lots of letters before Beaker gets a bit miffed and can't see the study floor!

    It has got to be without a doubt shoes! If everything else fails to fit..... the shoe never lets you down!!

    I also went through a stage of buying anything with Mr Men on..... thankfully I've grown out of that now cuz otherwise I'd had a very full room on Mr Tickle

    Plug in Air Freshners

    I have a dog (although she doesn't smell, is very clean and beautiful) and a pet mouse (who does smell seeing as all they do is wee and poo, it's true every few seconds a mouse will have a poo) and i can't stand the thought of my house smelling of pets, so Air Freshners it is for me!
