Two fold for me:
1) once I find a disc I like, I usually buy a backup (especially for ones that have been recently discontinued).
2) I have only been playing for one year so it is nice to experiment with different molds and see the flight variances especially as my form gets fine tuned over time.

I am sponsored so don't actually buy a lot of plastic. I purchase fundraiser discs from players or events I like and might buy something occasionally if I lose a specific disc and need a quick replacement.

The past year has been stocking up on backups since you never know when they'll go out of stock.

I'm looking at you Comet Hoarders!!

Because I’m a sucker for cool stamps and sweet runs of plastic.

If the manufacturers would quit making good looking discs it would be easier for me to quit buying.

I'm still pretty inconsistent and lose discs. So for me....I buy discs for all the reasons listed.
I've lost discs that I threw well, so I replace them.
I'll have someone tell me I need to try disc xxxxxx, so I'll give it a try.
I really like a disc, so I'll get a backup (since I lose discs easily).
I like a disc, but not sure about the plastic, so I'll get it in a different plastic.
Sometimes....I just want to try a disc out. I may have heard good things about it on this site or from other players.

I was looking for a replacement for my Witness since it is Out of Production....got recommendations for the Sidewinder on this site, got one and have been happy with it (lost 3 so far - all in water).

I bought a Westside Hatchet recently. Didn't need a disc with those flight numbers as I already have a few like that. But I hit trees so much that I thought....be cool to pull out a Hatchet when there are trees. I'm still hoping someone comes out with a disc called Chainsaw.

Curiosity, mostly. As my throw develops and improves, I have ‘outgrown’ some discs that either have become too flippy or lost too much fade.

At this point, backups only. 10 years ago, I wanted to try every disc under the sun (under speed 9 at least).

I’m a sucker for “deals” so if I see a mold I throw on sale or X outs , I’ll scoop them up. There’s X out Sirius OLF’s on Marshall Street right now. I have a crate with 6 back up OLFs in my garage. Do I really need more? Well, maybe I do. Oh snap, I need to spend $50 get free shipping. I could always use more Rocs, the 8 backups I have might not last a full 3 years. So that’s how it happens for me, and all of a sudden I’m living under a bridge, wife’s left me, but I do have this huge crate of backup discs I can sleep on.
