It's a harmless hobby really. They don't take up much room, and only $1 if you find something you like. I also am one that opens the packaging and puts the cars on the shelf.
I will open duplicates sometimes. And I already see an unopened case of HW cars in my future Wife found a 24-car case cheap she's been hounding me about.
I agree about it being a harmless hobby. When I was working in at a die casting plant making good money I would actually buy a case of HW cars from Wal-Mart with every pay check. I only had to give a small portion to my grandmother for bills the rest was free game. I spent more on HW than video games and any duplicates I held on to for trade or selling to other collectors.
I'm once again finding myself hitting the HW section every time I go to Wal-Mart. We don't have a Target locally so it's either Dollar General, Dollartree, Walgreens (over a $1 per car there, though), or Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has the biggest pile of course but they also poured them in a metal bin. Next time we go I'm going to have to take two carts with me. One to hold the cars we want, the other just to move the other cars out of the way.
