A packaging purchase I so couldn’t resist!

I bought a new summer hat the other day.  Did I need a new summer hat?  Well I do have other hats BUT I don’t have a pretty hat in a POUCH of all things and the voices told me I had to have a pretty hat in a pouch.  Why?  Because it’s a pouch!  With a hat!   You do know what a pouch is don’t you?  A CONTAINER!  And every hat needs a container.  I can’t believe my hats have been containerless all this time.  How awful!

Hat in a pouch

Gosh those voices are strong!

Pretty hat

I am so weak.  I would never have thought I needed a hat (in a POUCH!) if those voices hadn’t been looking out for me reminding me how important it is to be prepared for everything.  What would I do without those voices?  I mean I’ll never be without a hat now because I’ll have one conveniently tucked into my purse.  Isn’t that amazing!  Of course I needed a pretty hat in a pouch!  Who doesn’t?  I had to have it.  Immediately.  I simply could not resist.

Please don’t be jealous of my hat awesomeness :)

And that my friends is how this organizing junkie comes to own things she might not necessarily need but has to have because of the clever packaging it comes in.  Oh and did I mention the pretty hat came in a POUCH….with a zipper!  Oh my, I swoon :)

Please tell me you hear these voices too?

PS:  I have an extremely large head so the fact that this hat actually fit me was pretty exciting in itself!!!

    I try not to buy thngs I don’t need, but I also am a sucker for packaging. I recently bought Vlasic pickles because they came in an old-fashioned canning jar that I couldn’t resist. I also bought a department store lipstick so I could get the adorable cosmetic bag, which I probably will end up giving away because I really don’t need it. Yup, I love packaging.

    So cute! Such a fun hat for the spring summer, I’ve been meaning to buy one like that, it’s nice to have one that covers your neck and ears too, unlike all my baseball hats. And the fact that it comes in a pouch, I totally would have picked that hat over all the others. It looks reversable, is it? Mind sharing where you got it?

      Oh my goodness I just checked and it IS reversible and I didn’t even know lol. So funny! Also I bought it at my local drug store called Rexall.

    Such a cute hat for summer! It looks like that snow better melt fast so you can get out in the garden.

    A very pretty hat with it’s own pouch indeed. It looks very nice on a pretty lady like you. I’d like that one for my trip next week. But that’s ok I have a hat I bought a few years ago on clearance that is spf type, keeps you cool and less sun damage. It’s navy blue. Sigh. And I heard voices the other day when i was looking for a travel cosmetic bag. I wound up buying it since it zipped completely shut, not like one I have that I have some issues with. Compact is better. Take care!

    Since I was recently lamenting that my daughter has grown too big for the underwear I used to buy that comes with seven pairs in a zippered punch and now I won’t have any more, I totally get it. I’m also a sucker for small versions of things for travel.
