7th Random Thing - An Amendment

Random thing #7: strange enough to warrant an amendment to my list!

-I'm a Splendakleptomaniac. I hoard Splenda packets. I can't seem to help myself. It's so much better than Equal or that Sweet N Low crap. And no calories, and tastes as good as sugar!! What more can you ask for? The kicker? A lot of places don't have it. So I started taking the packets whenever they were available, and now I can't stop!!

Oh well; my sister's MIL hoards sugar packets. At least this is a step above that.

I think.

You mean that you don't collect tomato ketchup sachets and napkins just in case they are ever required??

I do - have also been known to collect sugar - but mainly the brown sort ( and I don't have sugar in my hot drinks) - oh and if we're on to admissions - those little handy tiny tubs of milk or cream too !!!!

So hording a semi-rare item is a step above hording a common item? You're still hording Splenda. That's a little strange.

I also horde hotel gifties, like the shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and soaps.
But they DO come in handy sometimes in a pinch. What I should really do is donate them to a shelter or the troops or something. Just what they want: coconut lime verbena lotion and shampoo!

splenda does NOT taste just like sugar. Bleck.

But I say hoard away. That stuff's expensive!!

I've just realised that I do do the shampoo and soap thing from hotels too - even found a shoer cap in an old travel bag the other day ! May be I have a problem ?!
