Question Is it hard for you to discard old balloons?
My original balloon is very tiny, now - but it does still have some air in it.

Somewhat. For balloons I took home from parties or such, it's pretty easy for me to toss them, For balloons I bought for myself, I don't really toss them unless they're popped or have a significant thin spot.

So fucking true. I'm like you, and I must say balloons tends to accumulate. And unfortunately even unblown they can't last forever

I had a bag of old soft 3 foot Chinese ones that were really nice to ride. I went to get them the other day and they'd all stuck together in a sticky mess. Totally ruined & I had to throw them all away :-(

Anything that I filled with air and played with I have no problem getting rid of, but I always tend to struggle getting rid of helium balloons, even after they've lost their float. I try to "transfer" some of that remaining helium into others to keep them alive longer and I still tend to hold on to that deflated one a lot longer than others. But even then I still struggle when their drooping low and almost out, I guess I just have too fond memories of when they were floating...

Yeah, balloons tend to accumulate around here and it's always a struggle to thin them out. Most 17's, 24's and punchballs I can cycle through without a problem because I have so many of them and keep the thought in mind that the uninflated ones will eventually go bad if I leave them stored for too long.
Helium balloons are allowed to survive until they no longer float. Full stop.
Rare balloons and giants tend to be the hardest to deflate and discard.
Any balloons "rescued", promotional balloons or balloons blown up by someone else stay until they deflate on their own.

Yes,but...

I like to collect them from stores (advertising ones)
I like to keep the ones I received from contacts even quite long time ago.
Once blown and if not popped ... I keep them for another "session".
If they are wrinkled after deflation, they can be given a second life with heating via hot air from a hair dryer.
So ... keeping them beyond a year is not cool.
I just threw a shoe box full of rotten ones ... wasteful

Small ones go in the bin, big ones I keep the shards if they’ve popped and a friend makes floggers and cat o nine tails out of them

I tend not to get rid of balloons really I let them go down naturally. Although sometimes the wife will decide to burst several of my old balloons so thats usually very enjoyable
