I've just learned that Ekim and I have been into tegestology for years. How 'bout that? That's just a fancy way of saying that we collect beer mats. We pick them up when we're on vacation, and other people do that for us, too. The ones pictured here were spread out on the floor by me some months ago in an attempt to find some duplicates, so that I could use those to line a beer basket I was putting together as an auction item for a local charity. I haven't even looked at the ones I put in albums some years ago for--years.
So, now that the collection has gotten rather large, the question is, should I attempt to organize them? And how would I do that--by country, or just alpabetically? It might be fun to frame some of the sets (such as that yellow and black soccer set) and hang them downstairs around the treadmill...and some of the prettier duplicates could be made into refrigerator magnets, but that would only take care of some of them.
However I organize these, I suppose I'll need a looseleaf binder, so as to insert mats in the proper place as each comes along...
There are one hundred and one more practical things I could be doing, but this is what comes to my mind!
