How Do You Organize And Catalogue Your Collection?

If you are a more serious collector there may come a time when you want to keep track of what you actually own. This can be a daunting task if the number of items is in the hundreds or even thousands. Thus, it’s a good idea to catalogue your collection from the very beginning. So, how do you catalogue your collection, if at all? And if you don’t have a list or catalogue of your figures… do you ever buy a figure for a second time, only later realizing you already owned it?
I use an Excel spreadsheet which lists each figure, but not just that: I have columns for the box number (Black Series), name of the figure, how many of each figure I have, which movie(s) the figure is from, if it’s a regular, a deluxe or an exclusive release and I also specify the manufacturer, since I don’t just collect Hasbro. I also have entries for Black Series figures I don’t own, to see what is missing. This way I can easily apply formulas and filters and see how many exclusive figures I own, how many figures are from Japan, how many figures could be used for any movie specific display or what exclusive sets I might still try to get.
So, how do you keep track of your collection? And do you have any useful tips to share?
