Good point, and I should have mentioned. I don't even think of this, because my wife and I have a way of keeping each other in check. I ask why another purse, she wonders why I'm looking at another pistol, I put a crimp on the shoe collection, she counts the number of spirit bottles, etc.
I'm alowed around 4 to 8 bottles of whiskey. This works out to 6 on hand (something with mass appeal / cocktails, a rye (in theory), whiskey (Irish, Canadian, TN, etc.), scotch, bourbon, single malt). Then get away with two I'm trying out.
It is a fair deal, and has a way of taking ownership of our stuff, preventing the stuff in our lives from owning us.
