I used to collect stamps, coins and stationary when I was in high school but all those were lost when we transferred homes. I was misplaced and I stopped collecting them ever since. I was discouraged and sad. :(

It was sad to know what happened to your collections. I make sure my collections are always with my most valuable things like my diplomas or photographs so that i could never forget where do i placed them and remember to bring them. Hope you could still find the motivation to start another collection again.

Well I use to collect coins, but after awhile I had to use them. I was collecting the new quarters that had all the states on the back of them. I was so excited to do that, but after awhile I actually needed them, so they were a little harder to collect then I thought haha. I use to collect stamps as well and I had a blast collecting those, but after awhile i just got tired of collecting stuff haha. I mean you would have so much stuff that it would be better just to look at them and that's it. I cannot collect a lot of stuff anymore because I will just end up throwing them away.

I used to be a huge fan of Nascar and would collect items for my favorite drivers. Once I moved out on my own, got married, most of that stuff went into storage. I don't honestly have anything right now that I collect. I try to keep my house clutter free. With two young children, I want them to have the room to play and not feel as though they are in a house of glass.

I collect bills from other countries. I think it's a very interesting way to kind of capture the essence or at least a small part of a country's culture.

Hey that's a nice idea. I think I'll try that. I have a friend who collects sand from every part of the world he has been to.

I kinda want to have a movie collection, but I don't have the money for it.

Well, not sure you would consider this collecting but as of late it seems like I am getting more and more chickens. I live out in the country so we have chickens for fresh eggs. They are addicting.

However, whenever my husband and I go out to a touristy place I like to collect the pennies or quarters that get mashed and have some scene on them. I would say that's really the only thing I collect.

I collect books. I love reading and like to have the physical copies of what I've read in the past. They remind me of certain parts in my life. I also love the way they smell, even if it might sound odd that I'm admitting that :). In the past, when I was younger I collected anything from breath mints to erasers. I was an odd little girl.

I used to collect old postal stamps since high school years. I also collect some old coins and old paper money. I still keep my collections until now.

Do you have any collection? ;)

Same as you stamps, coins and banknotes. Some of the them are quite old, but I never bothered to find out the value of the collections. But still keep them in a safe place.

I used to have a collection of limited edition X-Men cards. from the original members to the hundreds other character that came out, even Cyclops and Jean's daughter Oracle (if I remember correctly) who was stolen from the future. I went to school with these cards and wuhluh, when my classmates saw my collection they all picked 5 cards each and my collection was gone. I think I still have a couple of 'em left, but I've probably misplaced them as I lost interest when they've been "stolen".
