NATIONAL PACK RAT DAY
National Pack Rat Day is annually celebrated on May 17. This day encourages us to take a look at ourselves and see if we have “Pack Rat” tendencies within us. A “Pack Rat” holds on to, collects or hoards (often unneeded) items.
”Pack Rat” can be considered a clever nickname for hoarder. Pack Rats may develop problems with compulsive hoarding. There are problems which may arise from compulsive hoarding which include cluttered homes, yards, vehicles and other spaces. Doing so may become dangerous for themselves as well as others.
So today, take a look around and maybe start cleaning out unwanted and unneeded items. If you need to, call a friend to come and help you get started. Once you clean out and clean up, you will feel good about what you have accomplished!
Are you or is anyone in your family a packrat?
