I stopped counting long ago! I have an entire armoire completely filled, one under-bed storage container, one bureau drawer, several cardboard boxes, and some that don't have a 'home'! And those are just my wood-mounted sets! I also have a ton of unmounted rubber and many,many single stamps! It would be fun to get an exact count

I counted 120 two years ago and I've only gotten rid of maybe two sets. I'm going to estimate that I have over 300....ahhh... or more. Quick, blindfold DH... too late, I think he already has the visual! Maybe it's time for me to count again ((or should I?))

I started unmounting my oldest "keepers" (ones I want to always keep but will never get rid of) but still have a bunch to go.

according to a list I bought from ? (can't remember right now) there are over 2500 US SU! sets. room to grow!!!!!

I guess I know too many people who WOULD NOT allow themselves to collect 100+ stamps
I guess it just depends on what one chooses to spend extra money on (if there is any extra). I don't spend much on shoes, clothes, jewelry, etc. I am happy with one pair of fake diamond earrings and one pair of dress-up ones. I don't get my hair dyed, my nails done, etc. Crafting and homeschooling books are my splurges.

Yep!

My demo is so good she gets rid of all her retired sets unless its one she CANNOT live without, and that doesn't happen very often. So I end up buying a lot of them,LOL

I still remember when I had one filing cabinet drawer that fit EVERYTHING I had, even paper... and DH said I had too much... gulp... I keep all of them in a cabinet now, too, so as not to advertise... I did join as a hobby demo, though, so I at least got a great discount. AND my upline sells her retired sets, too.

my mind always works a little backwards, but I thought of a good response!:

"more than I need"

that should be on the poll!

Like most everyone here, I way to many!! And I agree with Cordelia, if I tell you, then I would have to kill you. I think you seriously underestimated the amount of stamps!! The bigger number poll makes more sense!! JMHO!

It should take you to the thread for those with 50+ sets.
(sorry, didn't see this was already answered.)

Default Stamp sets

I think I might have 12 sets. Seen a bunch I want but am under a very tight budget. Why couldn't I have found SU back when I had a really, really good full time job. I could have been a contender then. lol

I have 35 SU stamp sets but have over 2,000 single stamps from different companies. Also, I just sold over 250 stamps plus about 5 SU sets on ebay. Gotta part with the stamps I won't use any more so have room for new stuff. I have been stamping since the '80's so accumulated alot of stamps over the years. I bet there are stampers out there who have more than me. Happy Stamping!

Haven't counted in a while but I have well over 100. O.k. so not well over, probably about 140 or so. And then I have single stamps too. I don't want to count, I'm afraid to. lol
Not all of mine are SU. Most are, but I also have some TAC, MFT, Hanna Stamps, Missy B, and Pink Cat Studios.

Default 378 as of today. 6 sets in the mail!

378 SU complete sets at least 1000 individual other company stamps. (Don't tell DH) All unmounted with ez-mount backing. Many hours on that project. I have all my SU sets cataloged on an excel file and copies of the label sheets organized in a binder. I am working on cataloging the non SU stamps. I have all the copies made and the company information just need time to put it together. With Christmas around the corner it will have to be put on hold for now.
