Buying Weeklys vs Trade Waiting

I have so much to read right now and can not keep up with it. I was thinking maybe trade waiting is the solution. That way I'll catch up on everything I have and hopefully I'll be getting a couple new trades every week or so. It makes storage and re-reading alot easier as well. On the negative side you fall out of the loop of current story arcs and miss out on the weekly excitement of purchasing new gems from the local comic book store. I started thinking maybe a combination of weeklys and trades. For instance pick 5 comics to follow on the monthly basis and then wait for trades for everything else. But it's so hard to narrow your picks down to 5 especially with all the event comics and crossovers. Any thoughts on this matter?
