When do you know you're done collecting posters??

This can't go on forever, or can it??

I've only 4 pages of a collection and ive spent a bit.
I'd be afraid to ask what some of ye have spent on your collection.

Well as soon as I have all the Danger prints I want...I plan on moving to Drew Millward....then picking up some Rob Jones prints.....and hopefully finding the 3rd Bill Murray print that I am missing...(gonna be tough...only an edition of 7). Then I hope I can call my collection complete....but i don't see that happening....maybe when I get some capital...I can open up an art gallery....to justify addiction.

The way I see it, poster collections are very dynamic.

It's an expensive but enjoyable hobbie.

That is true...I remember the first time I spent over $50 for a print...I had immediate buyers remorse....then I received the print and I couldn't have been more happier with my purchase

I suppose when you stop listening to music.....everything else in your life would follow close behind.

Why all of these threads basically saying the same thing?!

When do you know when you're done?

Who gives a fuq?! Its been said before, they're just posters! If its causing personal problems, if you can't pay your bills, maybe you should reevaluate your priorities. Otherwise....

While I agree with what you are saying....I am bored...and waiting for threads to pop up so I can post....so....not really sure what I am trying to get at......I am getting along just fine.....I can pay the bills...but I can't buy the posters I want....hmmm

Well there's only so many you can fit on your walls unless you keep rotating.
I guess that was my main point. Not the financial part.

Maybe people are getting upset by this thread.
Maybe we should stop.
