I used to have TONS of paperbacks (not sure if that counts as a collection)... I had picked them up from used book stores and yard sales. When I moved last April, about 90% of it went to the Public Library and they donate it to different groups. Since then, no new ones. Trying to cut down on the clutter :)

I use to collect cookbooks, and bells, but 2 years ago I did a big purge and now only have 5 favorite cookbooks, and a large shelf of Fenton bells. My hubby on the other hand is a model train collector, so I don't need another expensive habit! LOL
I can't change my past, but I can change my future!
I've been getting rid of my collections but I still have porcelain tea cups and saucers, a few bells, some brass, windchimes, crystals, rocks from places I visit, baskets... What did I get rid of? Books, clothes, furniture, tools, arts and crafts, sewing...
Me no...I get tired of junk. However, my husband collects fortunes from fortune cookies. He received one years ago saying he would step on the soils of many countries and then was sent overseas with the ARMY with many other stops along the way. He's been collecting ever since.

Do you collect anything? What? How many do you have of it?
I have the soul of a collector. I collect pins (Disney and places that I go) I have around 150, coffee mugs (30) and watches (19). And this is because I hold myself back. If I put together three of anything, voila! Another collection has started. LOL
