    I don't keep empties; hardly have space for full bottles.

    Curious to know why exactly you would want to collect empty bottles? I am being serious here in my question & not being sarcastic...

    When the juice is gone, the bottle is gone.

    If it was a nice splash or a refillable bottle I might keep it. So far no empties have been kept. I've only ever emptied one bottle so far.

    I don't keep the empties. Not enough space to store them.

    WTF 150 empties!!??

    I've never finished a bottle, so I don't have this problem.

    Do you buy empty bottles that are collectible also, or just save your empties when the juice is gone? Some old or rare empty bottles can indeed be worth something, but why would you want to save an empty bottle of AdG(example)?

    Maybe some nice pics of these with the rest of your collection would be interesting for everyone, chrissyboy?

    There's actually a bottle collecting bit of the Forum

    Never collected them, but my estimations are that my empties so far don't surpass the range of a few tens (perhaps also samples, not just full bottles, included).

    Alright, we'll I guess no one else is curious. How have you gotten 550 bottle of free cologne for goodness sake! Also, mostly full size or the old 1-10 ml vials?

    This was exactly my thought...

    One single empty bottle is what started me down this road. Now I am guessing I will never finish another. Too many in the collection for any one bottle to get that much use.
