For My Dearest Readers: Cosmetic Back-ups. Do you hoard or do you scrimp?

Recently, I have found several products that I consider my Holy Grails. For example, the Biore UV Bright Face Milk, and the Neutrogena Skin Enhancer Tinted Moisturizer. (reviews soon) and some other products as well.

These are not readily available in the Philippine market and has to be bought through pre-orders. A bottle of those products can last up to 6 months or more which I guess the right amount of time to purchase before it runs out. But Im thinking about getting 2-3 backups for safe keeping so that if ever I run out, I dont have to go crazy looking for a substitute.

For my dearest readers: Do you store backups? Why? What is the reason? If yes how much do you hoard?

    Hell yes i hoard. =)
    Esp. if I'm getting a deal/if theyre on sale.
    I dont keep backups of things like eyeshadows, b/c ill NEVER run out. but i keep extra eyeliners, mascaras, Urban decay primer potion, etc.

    LOL usually I only get back ups if there's a sale, but I haven't really found anything that I like so much that I need a backup. Usually I just get a different color once i run out.

    At the moment, I have backups of TBS' Define and No Frizz and Estee Lauder's Smoothing Creme Concealer. Oh wait, I'm on the last tube with the latter. ^^;;; I try to find/buy backups when I know they're on sale and if I find them someplace cheap.
