My MIL is. SO warned me for months beforehand but when we went for a visit there was only a tiny path through every room. She has crayons still even though all her kids are adult "in case" they need them one day. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

Sounds like my ex MIL. She kept all these toys that no one can let their kids have because they may have lead paint.

Everything. Anything that she felt an emotional attachment for. There was a time when she would go through our trash to make sure we weren't throwing anything "important" away.
