My mom often sees things she likes when out shopping, but she doesn't buy them. Sometimes this is logical - she has a lot of stuff. But other times her reason is this: she doesn't know where she would put the painting / table / bowl / whatever. Her house in Arizona was new, big, and empty, but she would say she didn't know where something would be placed. Nuts, right? If you like something and you have an empty house, you will figure out where it will go.
