Be honest; how much paper do you have in inches or feet? I am up to about 2 feet. Yikes!!

I don't have mine all in one place to actually measure it, but just guesstimating by looking at the various stashes, I have roughly 3 1/2 to 4 feet. I have lots and lots of paper, lol!

I'm at least a 6 footer!
That includes pattern and cardstock.

I think I have between 2 and 3 feet. I think. I refuse to look too closely.

I keep my stash under 2 feet. This was not always the case. I purge regularly. My life and anxiety over so much stuff has been greatly reduced due to giving away the "extra."

I have about 6 feet but I didn't measure. I keep a inventory of all but the solid cardstock and this is over 5800 sheets. I might add that this does not count my 8 1/2 x 11 solid cardstock. I pat myself on the back for buying most on sale and honestly, if I was forced to purge right now there would not be a lot that I would truly want to give away. I have a niece that likes crafts so I feel pretty certain that once I do want to purge, she will want it and that makes me feel good. Plus my MIL scraps too.

Is that too much? Call me a Paper Ho if you want!

A little over 2 feet I would think.

4-5 feet in Florida but about 10 feet in Canada.

Of that over 1/2 is DCWV and American Crafts Cardstock. I am ADDICTED to Cardstock. I have to have it all.

About 2 feet and it is overwhelming me as I prepare for a crop and I am trying to decide what to bring!

I'm going to guess somewhere around 10 - 12 feet. That's 3 shelves on a bookcase plus some extra that are stacked and my Christmas paper, which is probably 1 1/2 ft. itself! I have a lot of paper!
It's a sickness!

It's so hard to resist cool papers! I do consider how I could use it, before I purchase.

I am so embarassed. I have over 10 feet including pp and cardstock. I don't know when I got out of control so bad.

I not buying anything more (except for essentials) until I get it down to a manageable size. I do use it but just not fast enough. I am happy to say...I haven't bought anything since November. Keep your fingers crossed!
