    Purging An Entire Collection

    I once had a collection of decorative masks that went from one end of my home to the other.  I didn't see that it really served much purpose other than I liked to look at them.  Once people knew that I collected them, I tended to get them as gifts and sometimes...

    One In Particular

    I used to collect Porcelain Dolls when I was a little girl.  As it appears, it is quite pointless that I did, as I took a dislike to them as the started to spook me out as i got older and now they are in their original boxes at the top of a wardrobe in my parent's home...

    Ummm...Yeah

    My pointless (and embarassing) collection? Pokemon cards. Not only did I own a shitload of them, I also put them in card protectors and arranged them by number in a binder. A binder that I'm pretty sure I still have in a box somewhere... My only excuse is....ok, there really is...

    Yes

    Beanie Babies, shot glasses from all 50 states, chop sticks, magnets from around the world and so many other useless collections in my home.  Most of these things are packed in my storage shed waiting for me to find a use for them.  I am ashamed to say I probably never...

    Bones

    Pencils!

    I used to collect cool pencils when I was in elementary school. It all started when I would get pencils from the dentist and it just snow balled from there. I had at least 100 at one point. I've since gotten rid of them all. They just sat in a jar on my desk anyways.

    I Collected Rocks...kinda Boring

    My dad is a geologist and he's traveled all over the world for work.  When I was a kid he would always bring back a different type of rock or stone (since he's interested in them) and I built up a pretty large collection.  I know it's kinda boring, but they have so much...

    There Is No Such Thing As A Pointless Collection

    It just depends on the context under which you think of this collection... In the words of the original movie Willy Wonka, Gene Wilder, ahem ... "A little nonsense now and thennnn Is cherished by the wisest men"

    Cards Anyone?

    Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon cards galore!  :D I got rid of my Pokemon cards a few years ago - I gave them to the daughter of one of my mom's friends.  But I still have so many Yu-Gi-Oh cards.  Maybe one day they can be the family "heirloom", haha  X]
