Back in 2013, I said I had 23 Lighthouse binders - now up to 51 for my main collection; plus about 20 more for duplicates and I haven't really managed to reduce the stack of containers full of duplicates and unprocessed material.

I have eight so far.

1 album from 1967-1985 Australia Pt 1 (full)
1 album from 1985-2018 Australia Pt 2
1 album for major errors and varieties.
1 album for researching d Kangaroos currently holding 3 thousand d Kangaroos including many various block sizes, half-sheets and full sheets and a coil sheet of 640 (large size album with A3 pages, had to fold the 640 stamp sheet in half to fit an A3)
1 small album housing all stamp authentication certificates.
1 album for New Zealand for scarce to rare issues
1 album for selected world stamps (includes scarce and rare Great Britain issues)
1 album for WWII occupation stamps

And a mini library focusing on Australian and New Zealand stamps.

Careful Rob041256, the question was how many binders you have. When I went to school your list would have amounted to NINE, not eight,

Ireland, you're doing fine. There are times I almost wish I had only that amount left to sort (just kidding; what am I thinking?).

To put it in perspective, I have fourteen collections purchased to breakdown, sort through and then decide what fits my collection - about 100,000 stamps and covers total.

Did I mention I only collection U.S.?
