    Haha, yes! I totally do that, too, only with my favorite perfume. Even though it's a pretty well-known name, the specific scent isn't easy to come by, for some reason. It's always the least often in stock, and only two retailers tend to carry it (that I've noticed). So I'll use my other perfumes to preserve what I have left of my favorite, until I can finally buy a new bottle. It's just so me that I can't imagine any other scent being me.

    The boots, too. I'm on my third pair of the same exact boots I use for everyday wear. When they eventually fall apart beyond repair, you can bet I'll buy a fourth.

    Do you think it's because of the N and J functions working together?

    I save the last of things, too, just in case they might be, you know, the very last of the last. And then there wouldn't be anymore. I guess we'd rather have our cake?

    I try new things pretty often in the search for the ideal, but when I find something I really like, I buy it in every color, or I buy backups. I don't let things sit around before I try them. I usually have several of any one thing open and being used at one time, with one of them in high rotation at the moment and the rest not current favorites but rediscovered as I go through my stash with either renewed appreciation or they get thrown out.

    I have a bit of a collection agency going on with lipgloss, lipstick, and various shades of nail polish. I like a variety of colors at my disposal. I've been searching for the perfect shade of lipgloss/lipstick that blends in well with my natural lip color, and when I get it in the store, it looks alright, but then I bring it home, and then it ends up looking either too red, too dark, or not the right color hue. I still have lipstick hanging around that I really like, and I've babied using it because I just can't find that color in the store anymore.

    Uh, seems too specific to be a type thing.

    Can't say I've had any similar experiences, either. Then again, I don't spend time on my appearance except to make sure I don't look gross or out of place or something.
