Lifestyles of the Rich and Compulsive

Candy Spelling on why she needs a colossal 17,000-square-foot attic:

We've collected a lot of stuff, and I wasn't sure where to start. So, I studied storage areas in hardware stores, hotels and big box retailers to figure out the best way to keep the original floor plans, architectural drawings and charts that show what's connected to what and how to find the wiring for every piece of equipment in the house. I have almost a hundred different kinds of light bulbs (for everything from koi pond reflectors to French lampposts), plus unique duplicates of every carpet, wall covering, upholstery fabric, stone, and paint used in the house. Everything is labeled, and I even wrote stories about some of the rare items, such as the tale of how I found the silk for our entry hall walls.

Your Say

I don't know what you're trying to suggest, Gerard. Is this your version of "at some point you've made enough money"?
