Books, I have one that I received in 1940 and another that was my grandmothers, copyright 1883. I still have my 1952 copy of The Bluejackets Manual, which was instructions for Navy recruits. I fear that they will outlast me.

At the moment, nothing.

I'm more into buying experiences and consumables than stuff.

CD's (music), and books.
But I recently got rid of (donated) 28 books.

Unless a book is image- or map-heavy or something vintage or unavailable in any other format, it is in electronic form. Problems with my eyes mean the ability to adjust font size is the thing keeping me reading between 2-10 books a week.

I do have 5 mandolins, but the thing keeping me from collecting more is that the ones I have my eye on are in the $10,000-$20,000 range and I have no interest in spending that much money on ANOTHER mandolin. That's "mandolins" the 8 strings in double courses instrument, not "mandolines" or kitchen slicers, lol.

Recently I started crocheting - I saw a shawl I liked but I wanted it in a different color and yarn. I've been collecting more patterns than yarn at this point (a lot of patterns come with how-to videos that are incredibly helpful for the beginner) but I can see that yarn storage might become a problem....
