How much gear into one outlet?

I'm starting to acquire a considerable amount of gear, for me at least, and was wondering how much can I plug into one outlet into my home studio. I've got about 16 pieces of outboard gear not including the computer and monitors all into one outlet. Right now it's only drawing around 5 amps. It's a 15 amp outlet and new wiring.

I'm looking to add more and was wondering what you guys do. Should I not be concerned as long as i'm not approaching 15 amps.

At 10 amps I'd start to look for another outlet. You sound fine.
