  6. I couldn't have said it better myself. I just hope, for my sake, that the people on the show "Hoarders" didn't start out saying the same thing! Have a great day Phyllis! - Tonya

  8. Smart! My sentiments exactly. I am not one of those who has to have a place to buy something I love. When I love something, its a done deal..its going home with me:)
    Happy and healthy Thanksgiving to you Phyllis.

  9. Right on! My grandmother's advice-

    "Sweetie, if you see something you love and your have enough in your pocketbook to buy it, please do. When you go home, you will remember it and regret not purchasing it. Your home should have special lovely things in it" I try to always follow Nana's advice!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Phyliss!

  10. I totally agree with that sentiment. If you love it, it usually works with everything else you love. Have a lovely Thanksgiving.

    We have collected American Antiques for years and that is my husband's mantra! In my "old age" however I have to remind him to not buy something unless we have a place for it! Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. I first read that advice in Southern Accents magazine and it was a slightly different wording from Dan Carithers. I agree 100%, although I confess, I'm made a few buying errors along the way. :-)
    Enjoy your weekend.

  17. I will be quoting Mr. Louboutin to my clients!
    No truer words have been spoken, in my opinion.

    Wishing you a Happy and Grateful Thanksgiving.

  22. That quote is my shopping motto!!

  23. Well, I USED to buy without a plan but ended up with too much stuff! Now I try not to stick to a room plan, but I still do love a good bargain or if I absolutely love something that I'll have to find a place for. (oops, the conflicted mind of a shopaholic!) Thanks for your support Phyllis, and have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  29. Things you love and make you feel good always find a place in one's home !..

  30. Amen to that!! I always have a tendency to over think things. I need to remind myself if I love it and it fits the budget - just get it!!!

    I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving Phyllis!

    much love,
    Desiree

  31. Very good point. I am just the opposite, If I don't know where it is going I don't buy it!However I do have an abundance of articles in storage that i no longer use and just can't part with. Maybe I will try a new way of thinking

  32. Yes, Amen to that :)

    One should buy always things one love and not only to fill a space.
