Sometimes I simply can't pass up the opportunity to browse thrift stores. The justification I use is this; since I have to pass three of them on the way home from the allergist's office, I might as well stop in each one and nose around a bit. Two weeks ago I was happy to find a set of four Pyrex dishes in graduated sizes. They're in perfect condition and I suspect three of them were never used at all. The price for all four was around $9 and I thought that was a bargain. Do I need more Pyrex ware? The answer to that question is a resounding "NO", but they're so much fun to find and collect. I really do use them too. The very best part of having them is knowing I now have plenty of storage space in which to keep them.
