Seems like we all have the same type of mentality with potions ( and enhancements).
When I finished NWN's and modules and expansions, I had a TON of leftover potions and still beat the game. Then I noticed I always have left over best buy coupons, free movie tickets from movie rewards that I never use, starbucks gift cards, expired other gift cards etc.
It's the same DAMN Thing!!
One day a buddy said to me (about some reward points on my Visa) As soon as you get them— USE THEM— because statistically people never do use them so you are missing a benefit with your hoarding, poverty mentality. ( He was a Brand Manager for Proctor and Gamble so ostensibly he was knowledgable of such things)
Frankly such simple advice changed my life and my gaming habits.

Now I use my best buy reward coupons to buy steam cards,to buy games. And I use potions as often as I can.

RPG in real life…
