Default Getting a handle on the plastic addiction....HELP!

So some switch flipped inside my head recently and I've begun buying alot of discs. Mostly used in lots on an auction site. I've been disciplined in waiting and watching for really good values. But like I need to slow it down by lol. I'm not putting myself in any financial bind by any means, but like the bad only holds about 25. I'm kinda being facetious but also am wondering how all of you have reigned in that desire for more and new and old and special discs?

Just ask yourself, “am I gonna throw this disc regularly?” If the answer is no, skip the purchase.

It doesn't hurt to have a few backups. Collecting is a whole nother thing. I try and keep my collection to 100 discs but once you get the bug it's a tough one to cure. Hello, my name is thrembo and I'm addicted to plastic.

But if you're going to throw it a few times and then think there's a remote chance of throwing it again in the future, go for it!

The addiction is real. Don't worry, you'll eventually have too high a disc-to-time ratio to throw any of your discs as often as you'd like...

I got to that spot once, and realized I had a ton of diss I didn’t really like, and needed to stop and refocus.

Ended up trading every disc that wasn’t sentimental, or something I do/could use regularly and after two years I’m down to just 5 discs I don’t really like that I own.

Conenidentally you can PM me for trades lol.

I haven't. Trying new discs is part of the fun for me.
