You know what they say about men with big freezers . . .

I only stockpile film when it is going to be discontinued and there absolutely isn't an alternative. So I have 4x5 HIE and Ilford SFX in my freezer. I missed out on Techpan, so I only have 1-1/2 boxes of 4x5 TP. (Fuji Acros developed in Finedol may be an alternative, but I need to order Finedol.)
~40 rolls of Efke/Maco 127 for my Exaktas
Drank the second and chewing through the first at a frightening speed
To be honest I sold the majority of the good films you see on my list above and kept a couple rolls left for myself. So much of the above list I only have a few rolls of at most. But some I have more. But I don't have any major number of any film (except the 100 foot rolls) since I honestly dont shoot that often. Thats why the box is the size it is instead of a whole freezer. The 4x5 boxes are taking up a lot of the room in my box. Those are still mostly full though. I forgot to mention I also have some rolls of Fuji 50D and 100D. I haven't tested those to even see if they are usable or not. Plus some rolls of 35mm Velvia (original). There is more but they are basically 1 roll stuff.

Funny thing is I thought there wasn't any left, but I wasn't thorough enough in my box and found another 3 rolls of the stuff. I decided to keep that. Someday I'll use it on something special that Ektar 25 is good for- like maybe the Grand Canyon with my 6x7.

I keep my film together with the limbs. The heads get leaky if the power goes out and messes up the film..!

I decided to not hoard any photo stuff and am considering down sizing to only one or two sizes. It's a sickness to be hoarding. Keeping a fair amount of working materials is fine but to stock up just to be collecting is really not where it's at.

That's easy to say if all you do is headshots . . .
