When I was a kid, I loved to collect things: matchbooks, baseball cards, hockey cards, all kinds of stuff.

As I’ve gotten older and I’ve moved around the country, I’ve kind of forgotten about my old collecting ways, but these pics kind of got me fired up!

Because these folks have all kinds of awesome collections that made me long for the old days of getting excited about STUFF.

Are you ready to see some totally unique collections? Take a look at these and we’ll see you in the comments!

1. Stay inside and stay out of trouble.

That’s a good life decision!

A year ago, I started staying in and peircing state quarters, instead of going out and getting in trouble. Here is my collection so far. from pics

2. Crows like to return the favor.

That is so cool!

Inspired by an old reddit post. I started feeding bar nuts to these crows that are regural to the patio of a bar I work at. My collection of gifts finally started after 3 months. from pics

3. All the art from all the kids!

I bet he’s a great doctor!

I’ve never heard of someone collecting pencil sharpeners before.

Collecting rocks is awesome!

What a cool idea! It’s like an art installation.

I love the way she displays them.

11. This is totally crazy!

I hope they don’t make you count it one day as punishment.

Since the late 80s, my office has been collecting used staples that were removed from documents that needed to be microfilmed/scanned. Here is that collection. from pics

12. How cool!

That’s a clever idea.
