I have never been much of a collector, but over a decade ago I fell in love with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series & I was obsessed. I bought fan fiction, the complete box set on DVD, I had magnets, magazines, Xbox video games and action figures. Yes, I majorly geeked out on Buffy.
I used to dream about slaying vampires and find myself breaking wooden chairs in my dreams trying to find a wooden stake to slay the enemy. I was so into vampires and Buffy with her squad, it was taking over my life at one point in time. It was pure escapism from reality and it cost me hundreds of dollars.
I finally decided to crack open my Buffy box and put the remains of my collection up on Kijiji and sell all of it for the low low price of 50 bones.
I hate bartering and I just wanted it gone and quickly. 24 hours later, I sold it. Seven seasons, six action figures, a music book (yes, the Buffy musical episode) and a bag of accessories for the action figures.
