When is to much, TOO MUCH?

Some people are obsessed with shoes, make-up, purses and or jewelry. Me, I've become obsessed with scarfs. Yup scarfs. How many is too many? I have 16 scarfs. Each scarf cost me no more than $1. This weekend I scored most of those scarfs from Old Navy during their $1 scarf sale. Me being the frugal person that I am, scored them for $.70 EACH! Yup I got an extra 30 % off for using my Old Navy Card. The rest, BUT OF COURSE, are from Walmart

The sad part is, I WANT MORE!! There are so many cute scarfs out there! I don't even live in an area where it gets really, really cold or even snow. I don't care, it will be 70 degrees and you're gonna find me wearing my scarf

Here are 15 of my scarfs, one of them was in the laundry. When is to many scarfs, just too many? Am I at that point yet?






What is your obsession?

Time flys when you are having fun. I've been gone for a week. OMG has itbeen that long? I've been really busy with my new job. It's going great, btw. On top of that I've had this terrible cold and have been going to bed around 8pm every night. I even spent a whole Saturday sleeping. I'm still sick but getting better.

Thanks to everyone who emailed me concerned about where I have been.

I think I've got some good posts for you all this week. I'm going to try to become as active as I was before. I miss reading your blogs!

If you're not putting a kink in your budget due to your scarf love, then I say it's ok!

Hey, nice collection of colorful scarfs. I think these are reliable and attractive to wear.

shortmama said...

What a cheap and cute obsession!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

I think you should keep going! I have a couple of them but I don't have as many as you do!!! ;) I want a couple of dollar scarves!!!

Frugal Vicki said...

I have a crapload of scarves. I only wear one, like three times a year. What do you do with all of those?? My addiction is the dollar store. Anything in it. All the time. I need a group. I missed you!!! MWAH!

happy mama said...

Hey Lisa ~ I've missed you this past week and glad you are back! Just wanted to you to know I left you a little something on my blog so I hope you can hop over and check it out :)

Now to answer your question... I do love a scarf, but recently I hosted a Lia Sophia jewlery party and now I am completely in love with jewlery... earrings, necklaces, bracelets.... YIKES!

Lacie @ Creative Attempts said...

Lisa-
you have been totally missed!! I love your obsession I have the exact same one...well that and all bags, purses (you get the picture lol)

Tricia McWhorter said...

Glad your new job is working out well! Yeah, I have a serious scarf addiction too. Haven't counted how many but a large bin and a drawer full are probably too many.

Small House said...

I'm with you! I love scarfs to. So funny....I was going to blog about my scarf obsession to. How on earth are you finding them for a $1??? With the exception of Old Navy of course.

You remind me of me. I have so many scarves and if i like one I want it in multiple colors. I need more necks, not chins, but necks.

I thinks its a cheap and cute obsession! Thanks for sharing it.

business travel said...

I am sorry I forget to ask how are you now. We miss you so much.

Ashley T said...

Glad your back! It has been a week! I found myself looking for your posts yesterday thinking I just missed them.

My obcession is notebooks.. i have a million of them. And I don't even use them all, I just love the assortment and being able to choose.

Cassie said...

Better than scarves, I love the pashminas. I wear them even in the house. :)

Veronica said...

LOL, that is a lot of scarves! I'm not a big scarf wearer, but I do crochet them!

kys said...

Those are cute! I can't wear them because I feel like I'm being choked. My obsession? Blog stuff, sweets, books. (As of now)

I wondered where you were but was assuming the new job was keeping you busy. Glad to have you back!

Kimi said...

Sick? Ugh. I just figured you were super busy with the new job. I love scarfs too but I don't think I have a ton of anything really. It used to be purses, but I've gotten over that one.

Evonne said...

As long as your obsession doesn't take money away from necessities, you're ok.

I love scarves, but I'm afraid to start buying them. I'll soon be obsessed, too!

I hope you're feeling better. Welcome back!!

Tamela said...

I am right with ya on that one girl. My scarfs have their own shoe organizer that he are stored in. I just got a new one yesterday and am totally rocking it with my new outfit!!

Amy said...

I really like this post. Love yours. I love shoes...

Emmy said...

You live in the wrong place.. sounds like you should live somewhere cold then you could have even more scarves! :)

Mine is definitely shoes. Though I really have neglected myself lately.

Nikki said...

Glad your work is going well! Wow you have lots of scarves! I love socks, like bootie socks, I keep buying them every year cause they make my feet feel so soft and warm. I have about 4 pairs of mucklucks, and then more warm comfy socks, kind of like slippers. I want to try and crochet a pair...we'll see how that goes!

E @ Scottsville said...

I have a lot of scarfs too, but most of mine are the real sheer type that are mainly just for 'looks' then a few that are for WARMTH. They're all so popular right now!!! And for 70 cents each? Dang! YOU GO GIRL!!!

Heck, you could buy extras and have a blog giveaway!!!

sarah said...

yay you're back!

i'm a shoe gal myself, but those scarves are super cute. i look slightly retarded when i wear them

yonca said...

I love your collection, beautiful!!! Mine is earrings.
Glad to hear your new job is going good.

Betty Manousos:cutand-dry.blogspot.com said...

I love scarves too.
They 're beautiful!
hugs hugs

MiMi said...

Mine used to be shoes, but now it's purses. Hands down. I should count them actually. That and tote bags. I still have a lot of shoes, but purses have surpassed. Hey, your scarves are gorgeous!!!!

~~Mel~~ said...

Shoes and purses for me! Fo Sure! lol. Though you wouldn't know it looking at me on a daily basis since each season I find a purse and pair of shoes I love and tend to gravitate towards them.

I love all your scarves...I've never been a scarf person but totally should be since it gets so darn cold here!

Amy said...

Wow, that is a lot of scarves! However, if there is something you love, I don't think you can ever have too much of it. I have books. too many to count, but I can't ever get rid of the old ones because it would be like getting rid of or betraying a friend. So, I have boxes in my shed, and all of my bookshelves fit to burst. But I love it, so it is okay, right?

Conquer The Monkey said...

love the scarves, old navy is seriously a girl's best friend and always has great deals!!!

Margaret said...

I am addicted to buying purses. You can never have enough purses!

Tater Tot Mom said...

We've missed you! Glad to see ya!

I'm totally like this too although it could happen with anything, shirts, jeans, earrings. When I find something I like, I get like every color, especially if it's cheap! Can't beat a $.70 scarf!

Mighty M said...

That is a lot of scarves for sure. I have about 3 I think. I love handbags!

plainolebob said...

Lisa. man I am like that with ball caps, I swap em, steal em, buy em, bet I got a ball cap from ever thing around here and then still want another one, I even stopped on the freeway where one had blowd off once.

Mrs. G.I. Joe said...

Ooh with me its pashminas! But some are just scarves too. I was aching to get this yellow scarf at a thrift store the other but G.I. Joe didn't like it for reasons I won't get into. So I am making him buy me a new more expensive pashmina instead :)
