    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"

    Jones Soda Glass Bottles

    I was pre-teen-ish.... and just thought they were cool! So after I drank them, I lined them up around my room.

    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...

    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...

    Bones

    Fancy Soap!

    When I was around 8 years old I developed an interest in fancy soaps! You know the ones, elaborate packaging, smells like it belongs in grandma's bathroom. My favourite one was a peony scented egg shaped soap that had flowers engraved on it. I had around 50 soaps just sitting on...

    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...

    I can really only wear one pair of knickers a time, one bra at a time, one pretty lacey slip at a time. I can really only wear pair of shoes or trainers at a time. Yet I own far too many of each of those items. I could go for months without wearing the same pair of shoes...

    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.
