Collecting Ideas

Growing up as a kid I always looked for something I could start to collect but I could never seem to get it to stick. I remember my first attempt was rocks; that got boring for me really fast. Next it was Pokémon cards and then yu-gi-oh. After that I got into Magic the Gathering. After that I got into comics and then I got into airsoft. So far the only thing I have ever really stuck to has been an assortment of things. Maybe you are like me and you are looking for something that you can start collecting without breaking the bank. Just do not try and collect things that you will get tired of a week from today.

Comic Books
If you are into the story format of comic books why not collect them? I never knew how easy it was to start collecting these until I found out about subscriptions at comic book stores. If you wanted to keep up with a certain comic book you can have the store hold these comics for you when they release and then once a month you can pick them up! Something like this is just easy for me to keep up with instead of having to go to the store often.

Maybe you are not the nerdy type that likes to read comic books. Maybe you are the guns and ammo type of guy. If you are then you probably know about airsoft. Why not collect real guns you ask? Well the reason why is because real guns are more expensive and I am talking about collecting things without breaking the bank. Airsoft guns can get pretty pricy but you can still take your collection out and go shoot your friends without their blood on your hands. I think that’s reason enough to collect airsoft instead of real guns.

If you are the artistic type collect guitars or any other musical instruments. How cool would it be if you collected just about any instrument that you came across? There is a lot of cool stuff out there to check out.

Sport Stuff
If none of the above are exactly your idea of a cool collection you might be the sport guy who knows all the stats. If that is you why not start collecting autographs from your favorite players. Collect pictures, footballs with autographs, and bobble heads?

Those are the few things that may appeal to a variety of men out there. Keep in mind that whatever it is that you do collect it would be a good idea to have a home security system. Smith security provides excellent services! Check them out. You will not regret getting set up with them! It would be foolish to get all these cool things to nerd out on, and then loose them all to a break in. Protect your investments! Its something that i learned the hard way. So make sure you are staying safe rather than becoming sorry.
