I buy a ton of crap. A ton. My home is crammed with stuff. It's horrifying. I'm not the only contributor. Hubs and my two kids as well. But mainly hubs and I. Each time I declutter, I end up getting new stuff. The worse thing? I can't say NO to other people's stuff as well. Do I need a sandwich maker? Not really but I ended up being gifted one. Used it once.
Sometimes I get lucky and buy something I really need.
Like this mechanical pencil. I have mechanical pencils. But they all suck. The mechanical parts usually break down. Sometimes right away. This one is from Muji. It has a nice weight which I like and the grooves are great for grip. It's also 0.3mm. I just hope the mechanical parts stay good for a long time. It says MADE IN JAPAN. I wonder if it is really made in Japan.
I have plenty of needle keepers, some were made by me. But I never really love any of them. Somehow I always felt something was missing. Guess what's missing? This Clover Needle holder has exactly what I was looking for.
MAGNETS! Now it's hard to lose my needles. I love it.
Do you have regular tape measure? The ones which you have to hand wind? I hate, hate those. So much time wasted just winding it over and over again. This tape measure has a button for you to press and the winding is done super fast. I love it. I have 2. It says MADE IN GERMANY. I wonder if it is made in Germany.
This cute container (see pencil for sizing) is a very good example of the kind of crap I would buy. It's around $2 so how to resist? The thing is I have no idea what I could use it for. Still I bought it.
