Usually, I have a pretty organized room but a pile up of breaking down two collections at the same time and the holidays. Well you can see the results. Yes, there is a method to my madness.

I so need more shelves , more desk space, Currently have taken over living room coffee table, dining room table and now I see a bed works just fine so theres more sq footage . All this being said in stealth as I'm waiting for a frying pan to clock me upside the head. Moral of the story is any room is stamp room!

We have a 17x5 dining table and it used to be the best spot in the house. Company was coming one time so the wife made me pack up until they left. Well they left and the wife said in your dreams are you moving back to the table.

I am lucky enough to have dedicated room for my mess ahhhhhh I mean collection, acumulation, room of good intentions. My room looks like a bomb went off and could even be considered for the show hoarders. I make attempts to get organized but the room has also become the room where things no one knows what to do with send it to the stamp room. So I am continually fighting for space. I think it is all part and parcel of being a stamp collector that we have a mess around us. Maybe when and if I ever retire I can come here and get those boxes of stamps mounted and in my catalogued collection. Currently I am losing the battle and there are now 8 moving boxes of material to work on someday.

I see you are a true philatelist! There is a package of Dennison stamp hinges on your desk. I love your room, just hope you don't get any out-of-town relatives staying over! I made my stamp room in a large walk-in closet.

My stamp room is absolutely clean! I removed almost all non-philatelic items, including the dust mites, so that I can pack it full of stamp stuff.

All that remains is about 20 cubic feet of pesky air molecules. Unfortunately, I have to have that for crawlspace and ventilation.

Hi

If you need more space to work in here is a suggestion that my wife's cousin sent after I complained about having no room to work in.

Cluttered sounds so neat and tidy to me.

An image from the past when thing were under control, neat and tidy.

I'm not saying my stamp room is cluttered, but when my son stopped by for a visit he asked if I was auditioning for the show "Hoarders". I refuse to take a picture, especially after I saw floortraders picture.

Excuse me but what is a stamp room? Just kidding. I envy those of you who have an entire room dedicated to stamp collecting. With me it really comes down to the most available flat surface.

I am in the same situation as Nitro.

My collection has spread into 2 rooms now.

While I have been trying to get more of it organized, I am still adding to the confusion by adding more collections etc.
