*added information* Who else has this problem of acquiring stuff?
I keep telling myself I will slow down and start reducing my inventory. My other half has threatened me numerous times that if I go first I better not leave her with a mess. Granted, I would be gone and would not hear her yelling at me and I did write down instructions on how and what to do.
I have been finding my inventory blob has been expanding at a slower rate because I do a lot of trading however my stock is still growing and my bank account is still going lower.
Part of the problem is when I find something I think is cool and I have to have it. Example is this 2016w PCGS sp70 fdoi gold centennial set which I traded some my duplicate key dates for. I never seen this set in this type of holder so I had to have it.
I hope this doesn’t come off as complaining because I can afford what I am doing (wife might think otherwise if she knew 🙂) this post is more to find out how others handle the mental aspect when they decided to reduce inventory but it just doesn’t work out.
I figure there has to be others dealing with this problem and I would love to read how others handle this issue.
Have a great day

Thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions. I knew I wasn’t alone.
Just to add a little more color to my dilemma regarding the 2016w centennial set. I saw this set on a Friday at my lcs but I bought some other coins. The following Monday I had to go back to my lcs to pick up some coins and I didn’t see the set. That night, I can’t believe I am writing this, I couldn’t fall asleep because I kept thinking about that 2016w set. That morning I called my lcs and they still had it and that afternoon, well the rest is history.
Now has anyone lost sleep over coins they didn’t buy?
My friends say I am out of control and they are probably right but I am having a lot of fun. I figure I might as well have fun while I am still on the right side of the grass.🙂
