Top Ten Things I Collect!


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by the wonderful bloggers over at The Broke and The Bookish! Make sure you head over there, check out their blog, give them a follow, and even sign up to do TTT on your blog! This week’s topic is a freebie! We can list any ten things we want, even listing top ten favorite lists. Hah. I initially wasn’t going to make one because my creativity in TTT sucks. However, after reading Josie’s TTT, she gave me the idea to make a list of my collections! We all collect something, some more than others — I’m one of those somes haha. I might become a hoarder one day (eeek!)

Top Ten Things I Collect

(1) Books! Books! Books!


That’s actually just some of my books. I have another bookshelf that isn’t picture here. I also have the random books on my bedside table and my headboard … overall I have around 400 something books. You can check out my (not updated) list of books I own here.

(2) Writing Implements: Pens, Pencils, Crayons, oh my!


Yeah, this is an obsession. I have over 20 different types of pens and I keep buying them. I use a lot of my felt pens for drawing and then regular pens for writing. My mom thinks I’m crazy since I don’t even go to school anymore haha

(3) Post-Its Galore


Isn’t it beautiful?! I love my little collection. I want to get every size haha. My sister actually has a bigger collection than me. That’s her obsession. It’s how my brother-in-law proposed to her! He spelled out Marry Me in post-its and stuck it on the walls of her dream home, with pictures of them all over the wall. AND on each post-it, he wrote out reasons why he loves her (*enter tears*) Is that not the cutest thing ever!! I’ll take some credit, I helped him think of it haha.

(4) I need Bookmarks for all these books!


I’m sure other bookworms collect bookmarks! I love the Book Depository bookmarks and my Up magnetic bookmark. You can’t really see it but I adore my ACOTAR bookmark that’s here 😀

(5) Nerd Alert: I collect School Notes


This isn’t all of them but I kept all my notes from my Nutrition classes from college because I love the subject that much. I look over them when I want a refresher or, you know, just for fun. I keep them organized by professor then lecture and lab haha.

(6) Cards that were given to me


I love making cards and I love getting them. I especially treasure the homemade ones. Cards and their messages get me emotional and I love keeping a stack of them!

(7) Notebooks: Big Ones, Small Ones, Themed Ones, Green Ones!


Continuing with my school obsession, I buy more notebooks than I use. Out of all these notebooks, 6 are used and not even filled. The rest, I haven’t touched. They’re all so pretty, I can’t use them haha.

(8) Pins, Buttons, Whatever They’re Called20150915_093441

I literally screamed when I found out Bloomsbury was giving away ToG pins with the pre-order of QoS! I LOVE pins!! They’re mostly on my bag here. I have all kinds, most of which I bought at Hot Topic or my sister gave me. I also got some from a bookstore and one of them says Future Author!

(9) Germophobia is real people. Hand Sanitizers are my saviors


I buy these all the time even though I still have some. I have one attached to my car keys so it’s with me wherever I go. I have hand wipes in my car and I have hand wipe packets. I know, crazy. If you think I’m bad, my sister’s worse.

(10) POSTERS! 


Here are the posters in my room, not including the many Super Mario stickers I have up on there. I love filling up my walls with them! The Hobbit one might be my favorite but I can’t choose! Wait, no! The Host poster is my favorite haha it’s signed by Max Irons ❤ ❤

Honorable Mentions:


I am starting to collect little bottles of paint 😀 It’s going great haha. I also collect movie stubs but that was hard to take a picture of since it’s all over my room and in my notebooks.

So there’s my Top Ten List! I collect a lot of crap and there are even more things I collect but these are the main ones. Do you collect things? Anything in common with me? Let me know below and don’t forget to leave a link to your Top Ten!

    You can turn cards people gave you into little boxes to house jewelry and more. It’s very easy and fun. I do it with pretty Xmas cards and I use the as decoration later.

    • Hahaha stationary is one of the best things in this world haha.
      Yes! I use post-its on my books so that I can write on my book without writing on my book haha.
      I can’t remember because I feel like this post was done so long ago xD (so behind on my blog) but I believe it was cause you had things outside of books that you liked to do and I had things I liked to collect that weren’t books lol.

    • Thanks haha! I got the Divergent one from Walmart — they also had TFIOS. There’s a bunch of Hunger Games because of the films on Amazon. I got The One poster from a special edition of the book at Barnes and Noble. Yeah, that’s probably good. I have no more wall space haha

    Neat idea for a post, I totally envy your bookmarks, pens and hand sanitiser collection haha! My own collecting obsession is i) nail polishes and ii) bookmarks! Though I’m trying to curb the habit haha.

    A trip to the bookstore or a school supply shop must be really fun for you 😛 Presently, we are collecting fridge magnets, we buy one from every place we visit so we never forget their names and what we did there. I have 3 so far, hahah, so I need to get out more.

        Really? Hmm well the only time I left the country (Philippines) was to visit and finally to live in the UK. But I used to travel everywhere in the PHL, a bit expensive to do it often though.

    Hi! I felt like I was reading a post I wrote. Lol. I love post-its and school notes and cards and bookmarks. And sometimes I think I buy books just to look at them, not even to read them. 🙂 Great unique idea.

    Eeek – such a creative idea 😀 I love collecting notebooks but I always feel too scared to use them – I don’t want to mess them up hahaha. Stationary is my fave, too and I love keeping letters/cards that have been sent to me! 😀

    I have an entire drawer of stationary, another shelf with stuff to make my own cards and a BIG drawer full of three types of paint: watercolor, acrylic and oil. Ask me how often I paint! The answer is pretty much never! Ooops!
