To make you feel better about what you've spent - my modest cellar cost in Canada (from tobaccocellar.org):
"The cellar contains 15 tins and has 12 blends represented.
We will find 1 lb. 11 oz. of tobacco in the collection.
This quantity of tobacco is estimated to fill approximately 273 of the owner's pipes.
The cellar should endure 2 yrs, 3 mos at the defined smoking pace.
An investment of $662.00 was required to establish the collection."
Yup, less than 2lbs for nearly $700. Stock up my American friends, in case things get as bad as your crazy canuk neighbors.

I am about in the same boat as Warwick. I am in the 65lb range but am still buying as I can. If something happens I am good for a very long time. If something doesnt happen I will gift it away and make someones pipe experience as pleasurable as mine has been.

I spend about R100 to R200 a month stocking my cellar, thats about $10 to $18 a month. I don't mind it..... blends here are going off the market due our poor exchange rate and the prices are going through the roof! Local tobacco can be had around every corner but it is the crappest of crap. I have not smoked anything local for almost 2 years!
My math is real bad so I have not yet given it any thought. My pipe collection is worth more I think?

I try to not do the math and enjoy the tobacco. My hoarding instinct kicked in a couple of years ago; even though I am a Democrat (yes, yes, I know) I am worried that the purchase of tobacco over the Internet will be banned eventually, particularly by my chosen party but there are other issues out there, believe it or not
As i mentioned on a previous post, I've got about 70 lbs. of tobacco in my cellar and generally don't touch it but, for the last couple of years buy maybe twice or three times what I smoke at the local B&M and put in a bulk purchase for jarring. I figure I've got some time ahead of me, god willing, and hope to kick the bucket with my last bowl going, so maybe another 100 pounds will assuage my TAD anxiety.
Sure is pretty to look at though. Now if i can just stop buying pipes .... No, not really.
