    Default how to help people who collect too much stuff

    My husband collects everything, from video games to movies and sports cards and other junk. Now I'm not against people having hobbies and I wouldnt mind if he collected a thing or two, but like I said he collects EVERYTHING and it costs lots of money and takes lots of room

    What can I do to help him understand

    Whatever you do, DO NOT HAVE A YARD SALE!!! Thats how people sell things worth $100 for 5 cents.

    Oh, Hi Glassy and welcome to Rarityguide.com! Perhaps you can rent one of those storage rooms.

    How about encouraging him to sell on line? The neat thing about that is that once sales start happening, he will probably learn to focus on buying what sells. He might even decide to make a business of it and try to show a profit.

    One of the great newer places to sell that does not charge a fee until after items sell is Bonanzle.com. Even then the fees are very reasonable.
