I have no method to my madness, other than a general sense of what I like and of course, the colors that I need. I love the white dishes and serveware and can usually find something that I just must have. I also love the reds and greens and I even have some blue items, although I don't have the color blue in any of my decor. If it's gorgeous, if it's the right price and if it speaks to me, then it usually comes home with me. Is that a shopping plan or what? How do you shop...is there a method to your madness?
I like to 'catalog' my purchases, so that I know when and where I bought an item and how much I paid for it. The easiest way that I have found to do this is to line my purchaces up when I get home and take an overall photo of he group, as well as some individual close up shots....I then take a picture of my receipt and sometimes will add handwritten notes to show the item matched up with the appropriate price. I like to do this because it appeals to my OCD collecting personality.
Do you catalog your purchases for items, collections etc as you find them? What is your approach?
