Do you collect anything? If so what is it and why?

I am trying to do clutter clearing. It makes me realise that I collect many things. I am very keen on travelling so I have taken lots and lots of photos. I have so many albums with travel photos in. I also have bought postcards from most of the countries that I have visited. I have many coins left over from when I have left one country. My favourite coin is in the shape of a triangle. It comes from the Cook Islands. I also have collected quite a lot of stamps from different countries. I have been fascinated by the clothes people used to wear in the past so I have bought costume dolls from many of the countries that I have visited. When I move to my current home I put lots of things in my loft like ornaments. I am sure it will be awful to clear the loft out for this reason.

Dragon - Red Dragon in Flight
I have a large collection of dragons which I have collected over the years. I have models and figures ranging from heavy pewter figures down to small porcelain models, soft toy dragons, picturs of dragons, even a couple of dragons hanging up from the ceiling in my hallway.

I have quite a dragon collection! I also have a lot of teddy bears/care bears that my daughter and I collect together. Sure she is only 9 months so it's mostly me trying to re-capture my childhood or should I say carebearless and teddybearless childhood.

I seem to have a lot of stuff like the things that you mention. I keep having sporadic attempts at getting it all sorted out...one on these days. Generally speaking, I seem to collect clutter :-)

Yes I collect all kinds of things. It all started back in 89 with comic books, then I moved on to baseball and basketball cards, then there was the Labatt Blue phaze where I collected everything they had recently made, then it was on to metal bike models with car models following behind them. In the last few years I started to collect Hotwheels so only god knows what will be next.lol

I collect probably way to many things, but I can't help myself. I'm a bit of a pack rat I think. But I am trying to get better. Anyway...I collect scrapbook items, books, candles, bed sheets, blankets, & even pillows. I just love a variety of things, so collecting them is fun for me.

I collect far too many things. I still have about 60 plastc Breyer horses from when I was a little girl. I have no use for them, and I have no daughters, but I can't bear to just throw them out. I have been collecting books since I was a child, and very seriously since I was about twelve. Since I have moved a great deal, I have gotten rid of numeous volumes over the years, but I still have a large amount. In college I began collecting stones and shells, and now I have a great many of those, as well. The only truly useful thing I have collected my whole life has been Christmas ornaments and decorations. I have lovely baubles, and many of them have sentimental value. Too bad I can only use them nce a year for a brief period and then back into storage they go.
