My husband and I collect Dale Earnhardt Sr and Jr things. We have dedicated our game room to Dale things. We have every thing imaginable - from things for the walls to bathroom accessories. I couldn't even begin to tell you how much money we have spent on Dale stuff. At first I thought it was a terriable obsession on my husbands part but then I got into it. I love it now. I think I buy more then he does.

Hi there friend, how are you? Im very glad that you are very active here in mylot, you have even surpased my efforts. Anyways, like you also i like to collect stationeries and stamps because i love to smell their fragrance and it really reminds me of childhood memories. And right now im trying to collect mugs of different sizes, colors, designs and shapes, that is because i love coffee so much and when one of my mugs got broken or damaged, i cannot help but feel sad for them.

I used to collect stamps and empty bottle of perfumes. But now I don't collect anything anymore as I just feel I don't have time and energy to do any collections. Now I have about 20 pairs of shoes and 15 handbags, but I don’t think they are my collections. LOL

Me and my wife have a lot of collection from Jollibee and McDonalds. And until now we have it and play with our 2 kids. And also, everytime, Jollibee and McDonald have a promo toy or collection we collect it or buy it.

I used to collect stamps and currency notes when I was young, basically got it from my brothers and sister. Then, as I grew up, it turned to DVD's

I collect quite a few things, Owls and Koala's, anything crystal, Christmas ornaments, and I was collecting bells for a while, but that sort of ended. I have so much stuff. I think it drives my husband nuts, but he has a lot of Star Trek stuff, he has collector plates, ornaments, movies.

I mostly collect crystals and books. I feel a bit guilty about my book collection though because I most of the books I have, I haven't gotten around to reading, yet I keep buying more of them.

I lost my Hello Kitty collection. Now I am starting all over again. I also like to collect cook books which again I have to start all over again. Then I read certain authors and in time I have a collection. So these are the things that make me a happier person in this life while I am here.

I have been an enthusiast of animals and plants my whole life though these things are temporary collections they give me the happiness in the world that I cannot compare. I had an orchid collection of about 50 different species, a dog collection with 5 breeds, a chicken collection with over 10 breeds of bantams, a fish collection of about 7 species, and 10 colors of a certain species. I just love comparing the differences and similarities of a breed of animal or plant that is why I love collecting them. Once I had a collection of fish called swordtails that I collected for a year and a half, I almost had all imaginable color of the breed except one. The thrill also comes when you encounter a rare breed, mutation or hard to find characteristic and then you haggle for the price. When it comes to animals there are times when owners or petshops dont know they have a rare breed with them so I haggle and the offspring of that animal gives me my money back and enjoyment of having a few people do :)

I used to collect them too but not anymore. I still have kept my all time favorite "GHOST FIGHTER CARDS" . That's the only thing left to me. I had let go of others actually. Like dried leaves (of which I forgot which book I had put them), rocks (almost all are being misplaced already) and other stuff that I cannot remeber now fully. hehehe;)
