Day 20-What do you collect?

At this point in my life I don't know if I really 'collect' anything.  I save a lot of things though.

When we go on trips I save receipts, a drink coaster from wherever we ate, the little things that remind me of the memories we made. 

I do try to pick up a key chain from every place we go.  I hang those on the Christmas tree.  Those are another trip down memory lane.  Does that count as a collection?

When I was younger I collected barbie trading cards.  I never traded them though.  I'd bet that my parents still have them in the basement somewhere.  I had a big poster that listed all of them and I'd check off the ones I had.  I probably had at least 75% of them.  I would constantly get them out and sort them out.  I sorted by year, by outfit, by barbie in the picture.  The back of the cards had facts about the outfit in the picture and the year the barbie was released.  I probably had those memorized at one point during my childhood. 


  1. I didn't know there were Barbie trading cards! That sounds like something i would have been way into!

  2. Ok, see, now I remember that "we" collect a magnet from any place we go... but honestly I kinda 86'd that idea because they all started looking so damn gawdy on the fridge! LOL
