To this day I miss the old Microphones forum. Not asking for it back but it was a pleasant place to obsess in.

Role model, you.

Agreed. Mics didn't even enter my mind when I posted originally.

I recently resurrected my old Phonic PMC1202 mixer from 25 years ago, which for much of that time has been festering in the shadows. Turns out it doesn't sound as awful as I remembered, especially on drums. I had a clearout of pedals when I realised I had 8 flangers. The danger of clearing out, of course, is that suddenly you have space to fill with more gear...

I'm less worried about standalone hardware graveyards than I am about software-reliant ones.

We had a clear out of mount cardboard in our loft. The only boxes retained were those for the turntable, amp, speakers, audio interface and multitrack recorder - since they might have resale value. Everything else went.

Unfortunately my wife also saw it which set her off again about my lead obsession, whereas I looked upon it as validation that I'm completely normal.
