Years for me as well...

70 years now with all the experiences and events which happen here and there. Oh, and rocks from which I make rock jewelry, and alpacas. I would collect more dogs and cats, except they need feeding and that costs money. Rocks tend to be more affordable. :)

Ha!

Better to keep collecting than stop, eh?

I collect vernacular photography

I go to flea-markets and rummage through boxes and find snap- shots of people and their families from days gone by. Most of the ones I find are from the 1960's and 70s, but sometimes I find some from the WWII era.

Here is a website that shows samples of vernacular photography. If you go through the archives, there are lots of great and funny photos and shows what real people were doing, wearing and eating a long time ago:

I collect guitars

Hoping that one day I may find a magic one that I can actually play well haha

Like this?

Probably some normal things...

...like most people, but I have one weird one. I just love bi-centennial quarters! I don't know why because they aren't worth more. I don't have a ton of them, but when I get one, I have to save it.

My hobby is Thinking

and I collect thoughts.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Hahahaha!

That's cool! I like that one!

Stamps. Fun. Cheap. Great way to learn American History

Fun fact:

The price of postage went down from 5 cents to 2 cents until 1932, the depths of the depression, when the priced was raised 50% to 3 cents - The largest ever percentage-wise rate increase ever.

don't hope to ever learn

don't hope to ever learn history from anything produced by the government!

The success secret of the universe can be found collectingstamps

and the government and mastered this secret.

And it is this:

Screwing things up is very profitable.

The most valuable stamps are, after all, errors.

Some government screwups are worth millions to those who know how to position themselves well.

The same applies to coins btw.

you may want to look into comic books...specifically the comic book released by the Boston Federal Reserve...

More seriously.

Youngest son (3 y/o) collects cars. And trucks. And Bigfoots (Bigfeet?)

Dear wife collects various things I've never seen before. And dictionaries don't help either. Pens that don't write, small furniture with no obvious purpose, etc.

As for me, I collect silver coins and bars freshly minted, computer books and programs, new credit card offers, and ... hundreds of pages of hand written maths that don't really make sense.

My mother in law always

used to ask me that and I always said " I collect dust." LOL

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

LOL! I hate dusting! To me, dust is not that bad...

I have the cleanest kitchen, the cleanest floors, the sparkliest windows, prettiest bathroom, but the dustiest living room.

Then I found out one of my kids is allergic to ... dust mites!

I was told...

...If you have allergies to that, the biggest irritant is the pillow. If you have a freezer you can put it in a plastic bag and freeze it every so often. Works great. Also, if you notice how heavy a mattress is after 10 yrs. compared to when you first bought it...yep, you guessed it...it's the weight of dust mites!

Oh thanks

And I was just heading to bed to lay down my head...

Oh, what if I can't get a plastic bag big enough to hold my freezer.

Frozen dust mites, that's a great idea. Thanks kron.

Free includes debt-free!

LOL...

...sorry! I was kinda grossed out when someone told me that too! But if we had a super microscope, we can actually see the bugs that live on us as well. They are supposed to be bugs that are healthy. I often wonder if that occasional itch that crops up from no where is the bugs congregating on one section of our body throwing a party! ;-)

Even thought the truth makes me uncomfortable, It's still true.

The bit about heavy mattresses struck a note. I remember tying our first mattress to the top of the Gremlin. to bring home.

I believe it did get heavier every time we moved over the years now I think of it.

If it wasn't so darn heavy I would drag it downstairs to freeze on the porch for a day.

So my aftershave is the booze for the Party Bugs!

Thanks kron!

Well...I wanted a hobby and considered collecting Supermodels

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?
