Damn. Brother from another mother?I'll probably hit 30 soaps by the end of the year, as I currently am in the low 20's somewhere. I want to get some seasonal fall/winter scents, and then stop buying for a while. Is it probably too much? Yeah. Does it take up that much space? Not really. At least not compared to all my shoes, colognes, and all the other stuff I've accumulated over the years.
I try not to sweat it too much. I go through periods of acquisition, then let all my "stuff" stress me out. Hopefully this is a hobby I can at least just simply enjoy without these conflicting emotions!
Soaps that I don’t completely love initially get the scoop treatment only. I might sell a few down the road but it’s weird IMO.I have a feeling I will be Portioning my my soaps to use in the shower...I just don't see myself selling used soap
Same here but without the stress. I go through periods of acquisition, then with a lot of new stuff to try, my interest wanes, at least in that area. Basically, I have rotating ADs.I try not to sweat it too much. I go through periods of acquisition, then let all my "stuff" stress me out.

Quoting myself in order to give an update.I have been paring down my stash a lot. This year I have been 3017ing my soaps, from most likely to go bad to least likely. I have PIF'd several and have another PIF ongoing right now.
My goal is to never have more than five soaps at a time, so I can have some variety but not ever feel overwhelmed. Once I get it down to five, I will buy another soap only when I finish one of the others.
I suspect I will be in that mode by early next year. I'm excited to finally be able to make a purchase!
