Collection or Obsession?




While cleaning out my garage, I came to a realization about my husband. He is obsessed.  With what? FREE T-SHIRTS!!!  A couple times a month he comes  home and lays a nicely folded new free t-shirt on the kitchen table, and I think to myself, "Another one? Come on, are you really going to wear that?" But he always does.

Where does he get these free t-shirts from, you ask? Anywhere and everywhere he can! He's got random band t-shirts (bands that have long since broken up), shirts from every company he's ever worked for (including Pet Smart :), t-shirts from all the choirs he's been in (show choir, chamber choir, Mt. S.A.C. choir etc.) and he's got boxes, plural, of Neil Diamond t-shirts(I have to admit, those ones are pretty cool). 

But most of all, he has free t-shirts with logo's of his friends companies (Create the Group, CineLlease,  Food Fetish, S.I.R., O.C.D.P., Truth Drums, Boss Paint & Body, to name a few). So, if you want to get on Ryan's good side, or need some free advertising, he will proudly wear your free t-shirt.

At least Ryan's shirts are FREE! Kevin has a buy T-shirts where ever he goes... I'm so sick of ALL the T-shirts. They are in the linen closet because we don't have room for them.
I think our husbands have a serious problem.
I love your stack of t-Shirts pic. It made me laugh!

dude, paul is also in love with free t-shirts. the best part is how he organizes them in his side of the closet by rainbow color order. it is forbidden for a red t-shirt to be hung in the blue t-shirt section.

Hey, I'll have to let Dale know...He can find some pretty random Tees and then Ryan can have some "Lee Garbage Tees" .

That is awesome. I LOVE free tee shirts. Ian used to work for Campus Life Design at BYU and he would design tees for all the random activities and groups on campus and he would always snag us each one. Now, 4 years later I am running out of ones that still look decent. It's pretty much my goal in life to NEVER pay for a tee shirt (shirts, yes, but tees, no). So I say, props to your hubby!
PS-is that seriously his laundry pile? funny.
