I totally agree with this thought! When the collection passed the 600+ sets (plus numerous single stamps), I knew I had to purge at least SOME of them! What I found to be the most telling for me was to actually stamp all of the stamps that I thought I wanted to get rid of. There were quite a few that - surprisingly - I couldn't let go of. The ones that did make it to the donate pile were the ones that I just couldn't envision myself using - ever. I even kept a few of those for purely sentimental reasons. I may never stamp them again, but they conjure up memories of happy times or loved ones who have passed on, and so they stay...
