- Five pillows BESIDES the four on her bed, saved because "They're so comfortable and we got them for our 30th wedding anniversary and, well, I just need them." They'd been in a closet for two years.
- Seven complete sets of full size sheets saved "Just in case."
- 17 coffee cups
- Three irons
- Six bread pans
- Ten purses to complement the over 150 (seriously) articles of clothing she owns
- Over 20 pairs of shoes
- Food in the refrigerator with expiration dates from 2005
