I have accumulated a pretty large anime and manga collection through my impulsive buying, and a good majority of it is basically my backlog...

But I know where my passport is.

You just don't pay attention as you get into the moment... and pay for it later.

There's no such thing as too much stuff.

That is, until you have to move.

This comic is punching me in the gut. It's like Robin is psychic or something...

I keep my mess organized so I know where everything is. Not too long ago I actually boxed up most of my figures and model kits. Dealing with all that dust was far more of an issue than the inability to find anything.

I've been trying to sell off my buyer's remorse. It is a slow, painful, process.

Never had one give them away, but a friend who was moving out of his parents' house and needed more room sold me some of his anime stuff for real cheap: the Familiar of Zero Geneon LE + 3 volumes for $15, a PVC of a catgirl Rei for $5, and a whole bunch of trading figures (Haruhi, Lucky Star, and School Rumble) for $1 each. Pretty awesome deal.

Also, I have tons of anime, manga, comic books, video games, TV show sets, movies, etc., BUT I still know where my essential items are. I am moving out of my parents' house next year so I can make it even more organized in the new place.

I can sympathize... I have $1000+ dollars of Bionicles that are sitting around my room taking up space and dust.

I wonder how often all the Shelf Life people who've submitted photos with their extensive collections dealt with moving over the years.
