    What do you collect?

    I am a serial hoarder, I collect many things.

    My main collections:

    - 5950 baseball caps - I have at least 30 odd in varying conditions, some dare I say it, I don't think I've ever worn, and I wear hats a lot

    - Zippos - this was mainly an inherited collection, I think I have more than 10 but less than 20, I can't remember the exact number, I know some are cursed though (one was a gift from my ex-girlfriend, It's probably the fanciest one I have given it's solid silver, but it also has her name engraved on it.......not bitter)

    - Mechanical keyboards - this fluctuates often, I normally own between 5 and 10 at any one time and as many keysets to go with them (infact, probably way more keysets than I have keyboards)

    - Tools - I consider this a collection as I have many tools I have never used which I buy on the off chance I will use them one day, and it's better to have and not need than to need and not have.

    So Bit-tech - name your collections and show me pictures, I will get some pictures up at some point.

    Sunglasses. 2 Raybans (I lost the third), 3x Oakley, and a few more pairs of other stuff keep wanting more.

    Shoes. Even after throwing loads out I still have around 20 pairs.

    I tend to float from one collection to the next (mostly due to boredom). In the past I have collected:

    5950 caps - sold most of my collection now though only have 3-4 left
    Sneakers / trainers - I still have around 20 pairs. Although my new rule is to only buy below retail price / when on offer.
    Pens - just started and I can foresee it getting expensive quick!

    KidRobot figures. Although I've sort of kicked that habit (for a while).

    Also: wires, bits of computers, the boxes that everything comes in

    I've never really been interested in collecting, seems to me that spending a lot of money on something that is rarely used as you have many others is a bit silly. Saying that if I had the money I would have a car for every occasion. And probably a fleet of bikes too.

    Books, I like to read a lot. Other than that not really much as I'm a practical person and like to use the things I buy.

    EDIT: Actually if we're talking digital my Steam library, film collection and tv collection are redonk huge... So there is that.

    Game promo prints, not the stuff you get in special editions but the stuff in game shop windows etc.

    Want? Yes. Should have? <looks around room, attempts to remember what colour the floor is and fails> No, almost certainly not.

    Well I have four. If you genuinely want one i'll pull them out make sure one's running and send it to you for postage ;)

    i collect vinyl, and keybaords/keycaps to an extent, but i stopped collecting things in my teens when i came to the conclusion it resulted in me hoarding.

    Ah - vinyl. Forgot about that. That's the worst one. I've stopped buying recently actually. This is a good thing.

    You're a bad man. How can I say no to that? I'll PM you my address - let me know how much I owe you.
