Do you collect or hoard things? | Staff Box | Salt Lake City | Salt Lake City Weekly
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Do you collect or hoard things?

Do you collect or hoard things?

Bryan Bale: I collect CDs, DVDs and books. I’ve been called a pack rat, because I have a hard time letting go of something that I may never be able to replace.

Matt Engle: City Weekly pens somehow seem to accumulate in my glove box.

Heidi Weggeland: I have a paper fetish. I collect different types and weights of paper. I can go into a stationery store or scrapbooking store for hours at a time. I can never get enough paper. It’s paper madness!

Rachel Scott: I used to hoard Star Trek: The Next Generation memorabilia. I have autographed pictures (yes, I went to conventions), a communicator, a phaser, a tricorder, a miniature Enterprise, and all the Star Trek action figures, even Wesley Crusher, who we all love to hate! Yes, I am a total square.

Leo Dirr: I own an extensive collection of Garbage Pail Kids. In my youth, I thought they looked cool and they made me laugh. I keep them today to remind me how silly I was as a kid.

Julie Erickson: Parking tickets. I guess, deep down, I hate following the rules, but I would probably need to seek help from a professional to get an exact reason.

Derek Carlisle: I am the proud holder of the entire state quarter collection. I’m pretty sure no one else has this and I’m looking to retire on the return.

Jackie Briggs: I collect shot glasses, but I don’t really care to display them, so I just have this insane amount of small glasses I use for drinking. It’s the biggest bitch to get my eight ounces of water in.
