Are you brave enough to have one of each item you own or are you prepared with a second? 

We’ve come across a phenomenon where people purchase two of the same item or ensure they have a spare of said item.

Some people have a natural inclination to keep a spare of certain items, doubling up on essentials like phones or even TVs. 

After some research, we found a few items that people have two of. Let us know if you have any of these items in our poll below:

While we haven’t found any solid answers for why people do this, some of the reasons we’ve come across include:

  • Security,

  • Convenience,

  • Preference for being prepared.

Having two of the same item may seem like an unusual choice to some, but it’s one that is comfortable and convenient to others. 

It ensures you’re always prepared for whatever the world may throw at you.

Whether you have a second laptop for emergencies or a well-thought-out change of clothes, we understand that it's a practical choice that provides comfort in unexpected situations.
