I just logged in my 50% and 75% off purchases. I purchased 66 ... 2021 ornaments this year.

I keep saying I have to stop.

I feel like I cut back a little this year, but I'm not sure how many that is.

And I have yet to go to any after Christmas sales, either. I have all I need. And I need to let that be enough.

We bought 61 Hallmark ornaments this year. Plus throughout the year, my wife is often buying other ornaments at thrift stores.

My list of ornaments to buy in 2022 is already up to 14. That number is based on the series we collect. And, I am assuming there will be a 10th anniversary North Pole Tree Trimmers ornament in addition to the regular ornament. I am also assuming there will be 2 new Star Wars storytellers ornaments in 2022...most likely Darth Vader and Princess Leia.

Hallmark Keepsakes = 98
Hallmark Red Box = 14

I need to cut back. I was buying only about 1/3 that amount a few years ago, but I've fallen off the wagon.

My 2022 New Years ornament resolution is to cut my purchases in half.

I made the mistake of stopping in my local store last night. They had just gone to 75% off, and I walked out with four more ornaments I'm regretting buying. I really don't have room for any more.

A fine line (or not so fine) between too many and not enough. The answer would depend on the day.

So as you saw above, I got 34 ornaments. I checked to see how many of them were for
the tree…11. The rest were for Barbie, family and friends…yikes!

Bought way too many in 2021. Plan to cut the number in half.

Half the series I once collected, I've stopped buying every year.

If the series ends, I can always back collect missing years.

7 this year. 3 for me, 3 for daughter & 1 for son.

Plus an extra All Aboard just because I loved it.

Not going in the stores as much and not really looking online either also helped.

I did buy 2 Red now White Boxes @ WalMart for daughter & SIL. Both were of the 14.98 variety and not the 7.95 or whatever they were this year.

Quitting every single series in recent years and not starting new ones helped a lot.

That was it.

The. End.

Feels really good to not buy so many when I have too many as it is.

edited to add: oops forgot my NBC 2 new Storyteller additions for 2021 and a new Jack Skellington Bedtime Stories so Total Keepsakes = 10. Still not bad from where I came from to where I am now~!!! Thing is, everything I buy is 20-35.00 so 10 still adds up quickly. Progress, so I'll take it, on my quest to cut back.

Qwackertoo, you bought enough ornaments to satisfy the collector in you and still kept
your shopping from being overwhelming . Good for you!

I don’t have my book that I marked, so looking at an unmarked book, I got more than I thought or want to admit to here. My list this year is similar but the total is much higher. I will cut back on my list and bring that total down. Usually seeing the ornaments in person helps. Usually. Not always. *wink*
