At one stage many many moons ago I had lists of everything I owned and could quickly find out where,when,and how much I paid for a certain item-now I dont even know what I have anymore!!
My trouble is I have 2 lots of gear,stuff for the collection but am a sucker for if I see something that I have no interest in whatsoever but said item/s are going cheap enough that I may sometime sell them for a small profit or use them as a trading item,if I have some spare cash(collect on a VERY TIGHT budget) then 9 times out of 10 I will buy and store away. Trouble is,Ebay used to be my main source of offloading these items but now DESPISE the place so much havent listed anything on there for over a year so am stuck with a house that looks like an Army Surplus Shop.
Easy answer would be to stop buying but Im hooked,its now in the blood.
