I think we all tend to hold on to certain things, sometimes irrationally.
Back in 2005, I picked up a free “United MileagePlus Visa” amenity kit at the ticket counter in Washington Dulles. For the last 12 years, it has served as my toiletry bag. This little bag has seen 125 countries on six continents!
But it is has seen better days. The corners are broken, the zipper is bent, and it is wearing at the seams. Sometimes my razor or toothbrush slip out…
My wife constantly urges me to use one of the hundreds of amenity kits I keep in our closet and throw this one away. But I cannot bring myself to do it. I just like this one. It still works for me. And looking at it always brings back fond memories.
I want to say this is a male thing, but any female readers out there who are in the same boat as me?
Any psychologists want to diagnose me with something? Generally I am not a packrat so this seems to be an isolated issue.
How about you? Do you have a toiletry kit that you continue to use despite others literally just lying around begging to be used?
