Choosing Your (Next) Deck & Curating Your Tarot Deck Collection
About CourseAre you struggling with picking the right deck, whether you're a new or seasoned Tarot and Oracle deck collector? Do you struggle with an overgrown collection or with guilt every time you make a new deck purchase? This course will explore what to consider when choosing a deck to add to a collection and how to make peace with the deck collecting phase we're experiencing in our lives.
This course is for the new-to-Tarot folks, the seasoned folks, the collectors, AND the readers – there is literally something here for everyone. The main takeaway? Never buy a deck again that no longer resonates. No longer feel guilty about your collection, big or small. No more having to deal with a bunch of decks that just sit on the shelf. And, this is especially for those who are just starting out in their deck collecting journey – let’s take the guesswork out of getting started!
My 2020 Depth Year – where I refrained from buying new decks – was a huge teaching moment for me. I learned a lot about FOMO (fear of missing out), delayed gratification, and when it IS time to buy or replace a new deck. It is my hope that my observations and lessons will help others on their own deck collecting journey.
This course will save you from doing something as drastic as a whole depth year, like myself. Not everyone needs to full on abstain from deck purchases for a year, while others could use some abstinence. This course offers tools to help you cull and curate your collection, based on your own individual callings.
When I first sat down to create this course, I thought it would be a few videos focused on busting myths and offering deck collection tips. Soon it became abundantly clear many of us threw ourselves into deck collecting, without giving much thought or intention into what we were purchasing. As a result, some of us have collected so many decks, we can’t make heads or tails of what to do with our large hoard.
Some people don’t mind spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on collecting decks, but it is absolutely not necessary. This course will help us embrace the collection we already have, while helping others find their perfect deck when it’s time to add to their collection. It’s about curating a collection that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but is one that is a working body of tools for the readers, too.
For the seasoned collectors, this course will transform how you feel about your deck collection. For new collectors, you will curate a collection that is good for your soul, your budget, and your space.
Remember: Many considerations go into picking decks and the one(s) you choose today will influence what kind of readings you will perform, what kind of decks you will collect, and store on your shelves in the future – choose wisely!
Let’s get started, as we have a LOT to cover!

About the instructor
Thank you Kim for creating and sharing this wonderful course with us. I really appreciated all your tips and all the resources + handouts you've shared. I know I will continue to refer back to them periodically. This course prompted me to put into words things I've been thinking about. The deck collecting philosophy spread really affirmed some ideas I'd been having but hadn't formulated thoroughly yet. I now have a much clearer wishlist and a collection spreadsheet inspired by your course which I know will help me stay organized. Thank you so much!! ❤😊
This class was wonderful. It helped me become aware why certain decks don’t work for me and won’t work for me. More important, it gave me new insight and appreciation for the decks I have and has allowed me to see that my deck collection needs a revamp and it’s time to pass some along. When I made my wishlist and I was researching prices, I realized that a deck I’ve lusted over for years and assumed was OOP (I’ve seen it for upwards of $250 on eBay), simply isn’t available in the USA and I found it for $65 including shipping from the UK. The wishlist exercises also helped me realize I wanted to cancel two preorders and reassess next year if they are for me or not. I don’t need all the decks, and even if I did, I don’t have money or space for all the decks. Thank you for putting this together. This has completely shifted how I look at my deck collection and what direction I want to take it in.
Great course! Helped me decide the direction I want to take my collection.
