"Collecting" creeps me out a little bit.

For me it's pretty much books and clothes. I do like some art pieces or cool antiques or even toys, but would never more than a couple here and there.

I do have hundreds of books though.

edit: used to keep my magazines too, but that's pretty useless

I used to collect car models and plastic plane/ship models that you had to build/paint by yourself.

Well I did
.... I still have some that are still boxed up. But this is when I was a kid and thought that they were like baseball cards and going to be worth a lot of money. I have over about 20+ still boxed up. Tons of Spawn (repaints), Batman (limited editions) and other comic book heroes. Still do not want to get rid of them.
