Default Got a Little Hordie there...
Right now I'm full up on my loons. I ended up being such a horder I realized I ran out of room to put all my loons. I had a trunk full in my closet. and my nightstand had over 100 loons and pieces floating around.

So I've been grabbing random handfulls of my stash and they are in a box under my bed. If I have the house to myself and I want to wank, I grab whatever balloon is in the box and get off with it.

Mouse ears, Geos, everything between 9" and 24" is in the box. A bunch of the specialty shapes from china that I bought from alibaba while stoned.

If they pop...depends. I've found some real riding treasures. and some btp's that were so awesome I couldn't last through it.

it's been fun.

Anyone else?

I had a count back in November and had over 500 balloons stashed away. I keep them hidden in a box in the wardrobe as I live with my gf and she doesnt know about my fetish

I don't tend to have to many balloons at home. I love popping but im way to phobic to do it myself so I tend to inflate balloons for a while and when I feel they are becoming unstable I just throw them out. I would so much rather pop them but to scared.

Party store near me closed a year or so ago, stocked my supply, probably have close to 1500 12"s, 150 16"s, some 24"s 36", mouse ears, blossoms, and a few gross of long airships the 6" round 60" long. Various colors all separated into ziplocks. I decorate for most occasions and have a card board box full. My wife knows my obsession, everyone else aside from ex partners and a few friends, know I like decorations.

I have more 5" and 11" than I know what to do with from doing decorations for events. Supply of 16" and 17" is slowly dwindling down from popping. Need to start working on my Q24's before they degrade too far to get any enjoyment out of...

I have this same problem--err, same blessing. Especially with 11"s, and especially various Q11 prints. They only seem to come in packs of 50 and they're always such a small part of my larger decor schemes!

I will say that I've become much more aware of shelf life in recent years. I used to try to hang onto balloons for 5+ years but even with the best storage the degradation can be noticeable at times. So my hoard keeps growing mainly because I'm too lazy to toss out the older stuff that I probably won't want to inflate now anyway.

I rediscovered some bags of balloons from my wedding that was over 10 years ago. They were not stored properly by any stretch of the imagination. Grabbed them out a couple weeks ago to fill up my sister in law's truck for her birthday. There were a few that inflated a little funky, but for the most part they all seemed to hold up pretty well.

I definitely have a MASSIVE balloon hoard! I have two huge airtight rubber made bins just STUFFED with various bags of numerous balloons! Believe me when I tell you each one weighs well in excess of a hundred pounds! Everything from various cattex, tuftex, qualatex, rifco as well as a few cloudbusters and weather balloons And I can't stop buying balloons!!! I want more! MORE BALLOONS, lol! I love my balloons!

I accumulate as well. Too easy to buy a big bag and move on to a different type of balloon after only a few.

838 at the moment. Yes I count each and every one. Sorted in an excel spreadsheet with every attribute you can imaging - size, color, brand, source, purchase date, etc.



Adding 144 more in a week or so - got some new stuff coming from Nordic Looners. Got them 55% off since the store is closing.


I actually don't pull out the stash that often. But I like having variety, plus with the supply chain crisis right now it's better safe than sorry. When Belbal discontinued the soap balloons a few weeks ago I bought 200.
