I've been a coin collector for years. I even got into using a metal detector to help my coin collection grow.

Lately, I seem to be collecting fishing gear. I just can't seem to stop finding "something" that I have to have. One of the fishing boards I go to calls this the "bait monkey" and that bait monkey takes control or you and your wallet and makes you buy more stuff. Luckily, I have not been hit with bait monkey's close relative, boat monkey. Yet.

I seem to collect candles like you collect incense - I never burn them either! Weird, huh? (I'm always afraid my cats will set themselves on fire. Plus, teen boys tend to be pyros!) I also have a huge collection of fabric and yarn. Every few years, I try to be realistic and donate the stuff I'll likely never use but then I seem to replace it almost immediately. I have collections of Japanese pottery, Arts & Crafts copper and bronze ware, old books, and all sorts of stuff that seems to be in every corner of my house.

I collect records and casset tapes. I think music should be enjoyed using the media of that time, it was recorded to be listened to on records and cassets anyway right?

Too many things to begin to list, but most of what I (Buck did, too.) are things that are used almost everyday. Now our collections are collecting...dust. Ugh!

I can relate to that! and long after you're finished with collecting whatever it was, folks still find "stuff" for you at garage sales that mostly you wouldn't have wanted when you were collecting.

However, in addition to cookbooks autographed by my friends who wrote them, I also collect Champagne glasses. but I USE them, and since they are also breakable, they somehow manage to avoid becoming extraneous.

I collect dust, dog hair, cat hair, soot and nasty notes from my stupid sister-in-law. Outside of that, I collect recipes for wood stoves.
