I purchased scads of material with a view of using it for play.  As a result, I became a collector by accident.  Way too much stuff, too much money, too much space.

On the other hand, I've done pretty well selling it off and using the proceeds for gifts for my kids, beer money at GenCon, etc..., as well as finding out what I don't like, in terms of gaming materials.

Generally, if it falls into my hands it is not leaving.  I am too nostalgic about gaming products to sell them.  Maybe if I had a carping wife?

I buy the things I like and I add them to my dragon horde.  I have been collecting D20 stuff because I perceive that others are letting them go and will regret it.
