I wouldn't buy the boots because the box was a little crunched. I have a container fetish. It's a sickness that only quilters understand. I have almost as many small containers as I do fat quarters.

LOL

i have the same problem and it relates to all the things that i purchase.

DH didn't question it for decades and has now taken to asking me in the store why i'm rejecting this one and selecting the other - its rather comical the answers i give him.

Yeah, containers are addictive. Got rid of the big a ones and the smaller size is growing. Woe!

I am the messiest most disorganized person you would ever meet. Before I retired, my office situation was legendary! In the back of my mind I think if I get the perfect organizational tool, box or container, my bad habit will magically be fixed, so i have lots of boxes. Hasn't happened yet, but It could....

Boot boxes are PRICELESS!!!!! My DH was helping me to empty our storage room for some home remodeling recently and he picked up a very nice boot box and declared it to be "junk" and to be thrown away. I quickly grabbed it and schooled him as to why I save boxes like that. Luckily he buys cowboy boots all the time!
