No, too much of a good thing is great!
I have only about 20 tins stored and 3 of them are blends I haven't tried yet. I try to limit the number of tins I have open to only 1 or 2 so they won't dry out. I'm too lazy to transfer them to sealed jars. I have about a dozen blends in my regular rotation but the list is expanding rapidly.
My wife nearly crapped a stack of rubber nickels when she saw my stockpile of 20 tins. If I had as big a cellar as some of you guys she would have a s--- hemorrhage.
I have about 6-8 open at any one time. I really need to get better about storing in jars.
I have about 70 jarred ... it's nuts .
A dozen or so, give or take.
I currently have H&H and SWR, as well as a bag of SP Whiskey and a tub of CH open.. My cellar? Its another unopened back of SP Whiskey...
I have about 40 jars that I pull from. I have been trying to whittle it down some but I just keep adding to them. I am not good at disciplining myself when it comes to tobacco.
Any arguments with yourself? Who usually wins?
I always lose!! er... win?? I'm not sure anymore! But I keep opening up tins and buying jars! Then buying tins to open, then I need more jars....
You're winning and the other you is losing... except when you lose and the other you wins! The way I see it, you're both winners. Or losers. But even when you lose, you win. So I think of both yous as Winners! So... a toast to both Flatbush Pauls!
Holy mackerel! Some of you guys better get smoking!!
Thanks to all those who replied. It's very interesting to hear what kind of hoarders we all are!!
I only ever have one tin open at a time, right now it's a tin of UF. The Guinness philosophy ("Good things come to those who wait") seems to be in my blood though, luckily I suffer neither PAD nor TAD.
