One of the things that I've apparently inherited from my parents is a penchant for collecting things that I then have no interest in using. It took some kind of manual brain override for me to crack open my Futurama coasters, and I've got the most beautiful table setting I've ever encountered, and I don't want to damage it, so I just use some plain black plates and bowls instead. (Stfu.) I kind of want to stop. I paid less than $60 for those dishes. Why do I care if I scratch them or break them? It's just stupid. I should make a conscious effort to use things that I buy. I don't mind tossing some portion of money at frivolous things (like nice dishes instead of cheaper ones that hold food just as well), but it's idiotic to spend money on something that you aren't going to use.
Now I think I need another Diet Coke.
