    I Had Pointless Collections

    I have been a collector. I enjoy collecting.....but some have been totally pointless. I see that now. What did I have..... Claudia Schiffer cuttings from newspapers and magazines, calendars, posters etc. I used to think she was so beautiful and amazing. I had over 5000 pictures...

    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...

    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.

    Semi-pointless

    Clowns. It was only a pointless collection until I realized my mom was scared of them... Then it became a Super Awesome Collection that I displayed in every corner of my room.

    Rubik's Cubes?

    Yes, indeed, I collect tons and tons of different colors, shapes, and sizes of rubik's cubes. It's my own addiction, I have always liked puzzles.

    My Shoes and My Underwear

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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]

    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"

    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

    i suppose it would be more accurate to say that i would like to have a dragon as a friend, not to own it. we would fly together because we both wanted to, not because he had to.
