I find that selling and going back in to the collection helps, but it's a constant cycle of binge and purge. I got the fever and am looking for a way out. What do you all do? Take a walk? Eat a sammich? Oh, and please, no real world advice like "Well, maybe you should seek counseling to work on why you need to fill the void in your being by filling it with records?" FORGET THAT!!

    I open this up everyday and determine not to err from the righteous path.
    Sometimes I fall off. I'm only human.

    YOU MUST DEAL

    What's wrong with coffee?

    Target is a discount chain store here in the good ol' USA. It's where I buy my jigsaw puzzles.

    Coffee made with a ton of full fat milk

    playing havoc with the waistline

    So I understand the attraction of absent-mindedly pieceing a 'saw together whilst listening to a new album on a Sunday morning, but let me quiz you on a few of the finer points:

    1) you messing with those 3-D things?
    2) What's favourite in the style stakes, picture-wise these days?
    3) Once completed - throw? Swap among jigsaw collectro circles?
    4) How you packing the half-completed jigsaw for a later date? One of them 4' x 4' fold up boards?

    5) what's the minimum number of pieces to make the completion a worthwhile achievement?

    1) No
    2) Americana paintings (drastic color contrasts and line delineation-related)
    3) Put in closet, maybe do again someday, or recycle
    4) Never. It stays on the coffee table 'til it's done.
    5) 500. I usually fox with the 1000-piece jammy though. Anything more just takes too long.

    Nice.

    Wish I had the environment that could support leaving an unattended jigsaw for days at a time.

    You are a lucky man.

    It's all about the marathon jigsaw/record listening session. Rainy afternoon-related.

    The best way to satiate record greed w/o buyin is gaffling. Just gaffle all the records your little heart desires.

    Ha! Never would've predicted the direction this thread went in. I appreciate the fictitious spread sheet... am now thinking of adopting said tracking measure.

    What is the rationale for marking both "Exercise" and "Coffee" as pink on certain days?
