In light of all the "Hoarding" shows (which I am strangely fascinated with) WHAT do you hoard?

I hoard Beads for jewelry making, books and apparently lip gloss!

  • Magazines - I have every issue of Oprah magazine from the past almost 11 years. Very neatly arranged on a book shelf but still...

  • Not much. i save a few special things my kids make and toss the rest. We have photos in frames, but no shelves of things anywhere either. I hate clutter! DH and I are probably the opposite of hoarders!

  • I have kept all of my notes from college, with the intentions of one day reading everything for the fun of knowledge. But they have been sitting in the same boxes for years and some even have dust! I also have way too many loose papers with recipes on them. They are stored in an old oatmeal box. I really need to take some time to make a scrapbook for them.

  • Nothing. I'm quite the opposite. I throw things away and then wish I hadn't!

  • I don't think I necessarily hoard anything per say. But I think that I keep certain things, thinking I will use them someday, but I never do, and it just sits there. I've been getting better, I just tell myself...will I really ever use this? If I say maybe or I could, I throw it away LOL

  • We have books from back in the day like from college courses and year books, I also get the items that will need in time. Kleenex, toilet paper, paper towels and napkins. Can never have enough. If I have the closet room, then I fill it up. CLeaning items go fast in this house.
