    Shopping here is your weekend workout.

    2. The moment you step foot inside, it's like everything calls to you, "Come sit, take a break, you've earned it."

    You know you want to.

    3. But then you immediately have the urge to redecorate your entire place...

    4. ...and find yourself mentally remodeling your home every two seconds...

    10. And you have your absolute favorite items that you'll never get rid of unless someone pries them from your cold, dead hands.

    11. Or your children's...

    12. ...or, fine, your pet's.

    13. Honestly, you have very lofty dreams for your Billy bookcase system.

    14. Actually, lofty dreams for every organization system.

    15. Sure, assembling products may require a glass of wine...or two.

    16. But you definitely get a high when you finish any project, big or small.

    17. You probably have an endless supply of eraser-less pencils in your junk drawer at home.

    18. You always celebrate the arrival of this year's new catalogue.

    19. You have a secret love affair with the ridiculous instructions and warnings for each item.

    22. ...which, BTW, you can smell from like a million miles away.

    23. You know all you need is basically a handful of change to enjoy these yummy treats.

    24. And obviously you take some home with you.

    25. Others might think this view is daunting, but to you it's basically a sanctuary.
