When you become an AuPair, you are sort of obligated to collect something. It is generally one of the many questions you get asked.
For me, I didn’t want to do the typical shot glasses or magnets. I, instead opted for collecting sweaters (Hoodies) and post cards.
My thoughts around collecting a clothing item is
- You can wear it (DUH!)
- Once I have worn them out, I can cut them up and make a blanket out of them (I am secretly already a granny lol)
This is just some of my sweatshirts. I have way too many.
This thought came about when I was googling what people collect. It’s weird, I know!
Postcards are another thing I collect. I started this when I wanted to send my parents and friends postcards of where I went. This went on to me collecting them and when my friends went back to their respective countries, started sending me postcards.
I love everything Disney and have slowly started collecting a few Disney things which have crept into my house (and heart lol)
My goal is to have a Christmas tree filled with only Disney Character Ornaments
Other than that, I try and not hoard much as I do move often which means limited space and limited weight.
Except makeup. There’s always space for makeup :’)
