Collecting items is a very common practice for those who are fascinated by some object or subject, or who, for some reason, are emotionally connected to things that make them happy. And when we say things, we mean any of them, because some internet users have proven that you can literally collect even the unthinkable.

At Bright Side, we like to know about the little things that make people happy and fill their souls. That’s why we decided to show those collections that users from Reddit proudly shared as victory trophies.
