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

I LOVE to throw stuff away.  I do it every chance I get!  I'm not that organized though.  I try but we just don't have enough closet space or storage.

I am so not a hoarder - I hate cludder and I"m constantly going through things and donating or tossing stuff.  My dh on the other hand is a packrat and it drives me insane.

I am definitely not a hoarder. I am extremely neat about keeping things in order.

This is me. I don't know why I do it. Eventually, I do end up throwing the stuff away, though. I haven't seen that show, but have heard that it makes you want to clean!

Quoting meegs23:

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!

 Try http://www.afullcup.com/forums/ ... it matches your coupons to the current sales at each store.

Quoting DaniL67:  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.
