    I have an obsession for scissors that my son has catalogued as unhealthy. I have my regular six or seven pairs for sewing. 3 or 4 pairs that I keep in strategic places around the house so they can be found easily before they go into the sewing table searching. I have 4 pairs in the kitchen, a few in the bathroom for nails, hair, etc. I have my Christmas collection with the cute handles, my Gingers with a lock on the handles, a weird scissor I found once with 5 blades (is a lot of fun to make the little one crazy: How did you do that?), a couple of paper scissors that I keep on top of the sewing table and they can find in case they do come to the sewing table, but they can be used before they open a drawer to search. OMG!!! My son is right. This is unhealthy. The problem is that I have lost so many to their carelessness, I now plan ahead and keep some available to them before they reach my good ones. I need help!

    Several. A few here (KabuL) and I'm good for at least a few pairs at home.
