My grandmother was a pack rat and I attribute that to her having to go through the great depression.....but me?
My husband got laid off about a month ago and now we have very little money. I like to scrape together things around the house to make things "work" and to slove problems, but is it going to far to save boxes and popsicle sticks and old broken lamps etc? Before he was laid off we bought a wagon for our two little ones and I'm having a hard time throwing the huge box away. I think, I could store my kids clothes in that, or I could use the cardboard for a yard sale sign....the list goes on people!
Is this horrible behavior or am I just being thrifty?
On the other side of the story, I know I'm OCD and that when stuff that i've saved builds up, it's such an adreniline (sp?) rush to throw all this stuff away and "clean" and "organize" my house again. I hate clutter!
Anyone else out there like me???
