What category of odd, cool little thing just always ends up attracting your hard-earned moneydolars and/or magpie reflex?
For me it’s backpacks, usually either vintage or military surplus but there are a hearty number of just good practical bags in there. I don’t have too many, somewhere around ten, but it’s nice having a way to put stuff into stuff and move it around eh?
My daily is a Tom Bihn Smart Alec, which is an incredibly efficient and well-built cavernous pit that is also tremendously ergonomic (I got mine lightly used, but if you google that and like it but also find the price steep, Patagonia also makes a knock-off of reasonable quality called the Black Hole 25, which REI currently has at clearance prices). I’m also fond of the British WWII rucksack as seen in Dunkirk - once you finagle the straps into working without the full webbing, it is a handy surface to affix patched to and I’ve even used it as a light travel pack before.
