Are you a hoarder? Do you keep it organized? Why do you do it?

i don't haurd(sp) but i have a hard time keeping things organized bc we have no storage in the house (we need storage for a few things not big) and my desk is always all over the place. I write on anything and i have to stop doing that!

I don't hoard but I do keep stuff that I want to sort through, then don't have the time and end up with stacks on my dining room table. By the time I get to it all the coupons have expired and I end up throwing it all out. Guess I should just throw it out to start with.

I am not a hoarder. At all lol. I get sentimental and like to hold on to certain things. Especially things having to do with memories for the kids (They each have thier own memory box) But I can't STAND clutter or things piling up- Once things start to get too muc hfor me I just THROW THINGS AWAY! I like things organized and not too over powering! The playroom got the throw away treatment not long ago lol

I am not a hoarder at all. I'm very good at throwing or giving things a way.

I'm not a hoarder per se, but I do feel the need to hang on to things incessantly because I always think I'll use it again.  But I always purge once a year. I'm a pack rat I guess, not a hoarder...hmmm.  Although the stuff I keep is organized, there's just a lot of it kwim? I got 4 bags of donations and 4 bags of garbage from E's room alone the other day.  I'm finishing C's room today.  I have too many different size clothes intermingling right now in her room.

The upside of my pack rat organization is that anyone of you could stop here anytime and my house is in "showing" condition, even the closets. Well, my kitchen and the playroom always look like a shit show!  We just have way too much space for me to keep stuff.

I've never seen the show hoarders, but my dad said it instantly makes him want to clean something lol!

 No. I am always giving stuff away that we no longer need (or trashing it if its not "recyclyable")
