Keep only the nice bottle caps
The first thing you need to learn, is that you don’t need to collect each and every bottle cap that you get. This is because not all bottle caps are worth collecting.
At the same time, not all bottle caps are in good enough conditions to add to a collection. For this very reason, you need to develop a strict rule, that only lets you collect and keep the nicer bottle caps, that are in better condition than the others.
Pick style of caps
The next thing you want to do, is to go on and pick a specific style of bottle caps that you want to collect. This may take a while, which is why you should continue to just build a collection in the process, so that you don’t waste any time.
Learn to identify the various types of bottle caps as well, so that you can easily manage to distinguish and recognize them when you start to collect them.
If you come across a rare bottle cap, or one that you know will make your collection become the very best, like no other one ever was. You need to repair the cap. This way you won’t have to travel far and wide to make sure you have the best of the best.
Join bottle cap crews
The next best thing to do is to join a bottle cap crew. There are a lot of bottle cap crew battles that take place, where you show off your bottle caps. As a result, if you are in the right bottle cap crew, you have a higher chance of success, while you will also be able to get in contact with the better caps that non-crew members can never access.
