Default Balloon buying obsession
I find that there are times when I am out, that I MUST look in stores and buy balloons! There’s no rhyme or reason why, really. And if I’m looking, and I find something new or unusual, I MUST buy it. This has happened at different stores,at different times, and with varying results, from the dollar store(I purchased the 22” punch balls) to specialty stores.

Anyone else?

How long do you estimate it generally takes, Bubblyzzz, between the moment you see a balloon in a store that you MUST buy and the moment it is lying in pieces on the floor, having just bid you a loud farewell?

Luckily balloons are pretty cheap. So don't care to much about it. Just enjoy it.

I have to admit that sometimes I go shopping just for loons. I visit a lot of general shops that might sell balloons. If I find them I want to buy them to test them. The exceptions are balloons smaller than 11". I am not interested in them.

I've never been without balloons for quite sometime and I'm talking many years. I contribute that to me being a non popper. I bet ya I have balloons in my stash that might be 10 to 15 years old. They might be good and they may not.It doesn't matter,but that never stops me from buying more. It's a buying obsession just like the title of this thread. I see balloons and think about how bad I want them and I buy them even if I think I need them or not. To me its an awesome feeling to just pick out the balloons, order them and impatiently wait for them to arrive. And when they do arrive, I can't describe the excited feeling I have as I anticipate ripping open the package to check out my goods. So yeah, I can definitely relate with the buying obsession
