I concur! My goal is to have "go-to" binders: one for backgrounds, one for holidays, one for flora and fauna, etc. If I can ONLY have stamps that I know I will use, I'm sure I'll be much happier (and more productive)! I know that I've changed up my style (or discovered it, or whatever) and that a lot of the stamps in my current stockpile are not consistent with that - I just need to be ruthless!
