I have decided that I will be going into the 2012 season with the same clubs I will end the season with. No new driver, no new woods, no new irons, wedges, or putters. Enough is enough. I will be re-gripping all my clubs and hopefully won't have to again till at least September. Anyone else barring down and going to attempt to stick to their current set up? A slight caveat I am having a new shaft put into my driver before the re-gripping.
NO MORE clubs changes for 2012

I hadn't planned on buying anything this year, but...... I had just bought myself a Cleveland Classic putter right before Christmas, and after playing a couple rounds with it have come to really like it. At about the same time, I pieced together a new putter for my Dad. I played around with it during our last round, and it's freaking awesome!! After we got home, I promptly ordered parts to put together an identical one for myself.
So, that's it. I have no desire to change my irons or wedges at this point. I have several drivers that I've built up and a couple fairways that I like and can swap out when the mood strikes.
I can dig the resolution! Sounds like a winner to me. I MAY reshaft one of my long hybrids or short woods, but I'm not shelling out any money this year for equipment other than some Pro-V1Xs and gloves. This set up got me knocking on a single diget handicap, and with a little bit more course time I will break through. Enough is enough on the spending. I am soooo over the "Hotlist", though I think it is quite usable for the beginner or transitioning player.
... it's unbelievable how often new clubs just seem to appear in the golf bag ... or so I tell my wife who is almost as avid about golf as I am, so I can get away with it (most of the time). I'm such a club ho & I think you're exactly right - through much trial and error, I have settled on equipment that works well for me & it's time to just focus on what I have & to hit each club well.
