    Hi kristazzzz:

    Welcome to the Exchange. There are lots of ways to collect stamps -- by country, by topics depicted on stamps, some collect stamps of the same color, some collect one stamp from every country issuing them, some collect only 1 cent stamps from around the world.

    The Smithsonian Institute has some excellent resources about stamp collecting and your local library, undoubtedly, has several "how-to" books about collecting. Here's a link to the Smithsonian that has an introductory article, plus several related links:

    https://postalmuseum.si.edu/stamp-collecting/introduction-to-stamp-collecting/index.html

    And if you prefer videos there is a bunch of them at this link:

    One of the nice things about stamp collecting is that you can do it your way. While there are some wrong ways to handle stamps, there is no wrong or right way on how to collect them.

    Do some reading and, whatever way looks appealing to you, give it a try. If you have questions, post them on this or another forum, someone will answer them.

    Don
