Some people postpone the good things in life to wait for “the right moment.” This reality deeply moved our Bright Side readers to the point that they decided to share the stories of how their mothers and grandmothers stored clothes, accessories, and all kinds of objects for years, just to save them for a special occasion, which in many cases, never arrived.

Bright Side looked over its readers’ experiences and wants to share a selection of them with all of you.

My granny saves everything too - clothes, towels, bed sheets. No one uses them and they collect dust but nope - needs t be saved!

I never understood why would you save something only for the gusts - life is going now, enjoy everything.

My mom also saves sweets the whole time only "for the guests" ?

My Aunt got married and had a tasty and lovely wedding cake. We kept pestering her to share the rest of the cake to us after the wedding, but she decided to keep it for God knows how long. After some months she brought the package out and was happy for us to eat the cake, only to find nothing in the box, because ants and moths have eaten everything. We laughed our hearts out and she was upset.
