Of course, this is over three years and two children. How was I to know who would like what and when? How was I to know that, when I put my DS (37lb) in the mei tai when it arrived, that he would suddenly rediscover babywearing after not being worn for 1.5 years?
So I have 2 pouches, 1 ring sling, 1 moby, and 1 mei tai. I think I also have one of those snuglis or similar that someone gave us (but we used once, I think).
Hey Nena, I know you are creepen on me. Get a life.

and then a bunch of fabric and blankets that I've done torso carries with.

Right now I own an Ergo and a New Native. I pretty much only use the Ergo nowadays. I have a Babyhawk Mei Tai, a Moby and TWO hotslings out on loan to friends. And I had a zolo ring sling, which I gave away last year in the holiday helper. Oh, and there's a hand-me-down Baby Bjorn and some kind of crazy hybrid stroller/frame baby carrier getting dusty in my garage. And I lost my first New Native.
So that's only 10. That's very reasonable. Right? And I'm very proud of myself for passing on good-quality carriers to friends who are using them. Spreading the babywearing gospel, that's me.
