I totally agree with DeeAnn about versatility. When I first started stamping, I looked through the SU catalog to see what sets I could get the most mileage from. Over time, I've added some sets that I had one or two people/occasions in mind for, but there is always something that will serve multiple purposes. I also try not to duplicate things I already have - I really do not *need* more flowers. I've got ones that will work when I feel floral.

Another thing I do is look at the galleries for a potential set here on SCS to see what others have done with it. That's helped me make up my mind on several sets that i was on the fence about - either I see amazing things and have to have it or my lukewarm sentiment turns even cooler when I haven't seen other people doing great things with it.
