If you grow your own hops, it's not uncommon to have several pounds on hand.  Of the 20 lb. in my freezer, I'd guess at least 5 lb. are from my Cascade crop last year.

Now I know who to call when I need some Cascade hops.   ;)

I am in the too many category.

Around 20 lbs spread over 25 varieties.   2 pounds on the way, and those are new varieties.

I have one pound of EKG whole cone that will go into a single 10 gallon batch.  Some more hoppy beers are planned.  They get used up, for the most part.

I like to support my LHBS so if I only need a few ounces of a specific hop I'll buy from them.

of late I have been trying to use only organic ingredients. so I order almost excusivly from 7 bridges as they are the only fupplier of organic ingredients I have found. I don't know that the prices are that good but given I can't find the organic stuff anywhere else I guess they are the best price around for what I want
