Are you a hoarder?

So are you? Do you keep everything you ever buy and find? Do you ever throw anything away?

  • I'm the opposite. I throw everything away and keep little.

  • I'm not at all - I throw things away that I/we don't use. The only thing I'm bad about is clothes - I have a hard time parting with them, even if I haven't worn them in awhile.

  • I could be. However what I started to do was find a new home for stuff I don't want to throw out. I love freecycle and I give stuff to the local church that sells clothing for cheap. I try not to go inside there b/c then I want to purchase stuff.
    I get stuck on getting more of the same thing. Say for instance my kid needs new shirts. Even after they have plenty of new shirts I am still stuck in new shirt mode. I am getting better. My husband keeps me in line a little bit too. A few weeks ago I cleaned out "the easy part of my closet" I took six bags of clothing I am never going to wear again out of this house. Yippie.
    It is hard for me to release stuff. I am learning to not get the stuff. That is making it easier on my family and life. Just don't look in my sewing room!

  • I use to be, but as I'm getting older if my daughter doesn't want it, I'm learning to give it to the needy, or throw it away.

  • I am not a hoarder, but I keep a lot of things that are sentimental.

  • No I am definitely not a hoarder I get rid of everything and then I realize that I actually need it.
