I need psychological help: building frenzied since November 2018

I want to build a new PC so bad it's aggravating. November black friday 2018 I built and/or updated 4 PCs.

Sold my i7 3770k + R290 after I built my R7 1700x (I know x not worth it but better price than the R7 1700 was) + 16gb ddr4 + EVGA 1070ti with 1 tb m.2 SSD and 500 Samsung 860

Changed my wife's i5 4670k + 290 to a R7 1700x + 16gb ddr4 + 390x + samsung 500gb 860

Oldest son's PC was upgraded from FX 6300 + 8gb ddr4 + Hd7950 to i5 4670k + 16gb ddr3 + R290

After selling some extra parts and systems I actually upgraded for practically nothing out of pocket thanks to black Friday deals.

In March I built my youngest son a R5 1600 + 16gb ddr4 + RX 570 4gb (it was $70) . I also won a $50 RX 480 8gb for my wife's PC and swapped my oldest son's GPU to the 390x 8gb. On March I also built a R3 2200g + 8gb ddr4 + HD7950 (bought new 7 years ago and mined on it for months and it still runs 1100mhz core and 1500mhz memory thanks to a bios mod).

On eBay I won a gigabyte b350m-ds3h and a gigabyte b350 gaming 3. So now I'm trying not to jump on Zen 2. I know performance improvement won't be crazy good but here is what I'm thinking

Main rig R5 3600 until the 3700 is back in stock. So if I do get a CPU it's going to be musical CPU.
R7 1700x + 1070ti to R5 3600 + 1070ti
R7 1700x + RX 480 will stay same
R5 1600 + RX 570gb to R7 1700x + 570
R3 2200g + HD7950 to R3 2200g onboard graphics
The 2200g is htpc I play games on TV so may get a 2070 for the R5 3600)

I'll have leftovers as follows:
Owned components in possession is gigabyte b350 gaming 3, R5 1600, 500 SSD, HD7950 (from 2200g)

For build to sale or gift at Christmas I'd have to purchase the following:
Case, PSU, DDR4.

So is the improvement to the system's performance worth the time and money at 1080p. What do you recommend as an upgrade path? I can spend a decent amount but enjoy the R5 1600 and 2200g because their price to performance is crazy
