Are you a hoarder?

I am! I can't help myself. I am an office/school supply hoarder! I was this way when I was in school. I love paper and pens and notebooks and post it notes and colored index cards and folders.....etc.

I find myself buying glue when it is .10 and crayons when they are .20

I have no idea what I'll ever do with my closet of supplies but it is there if I ever had need of it. 

Are you a hoarder?? What do you hoard?

I tend to be.  I have a hard time getting rid of my kids old clothes and toys.  I've been doing better.  Now my daughter, oh my!  I need to go through her room again.  She saves everything.

We tend to be pack rats. We keep things that have no purpose any longer. We actually just decided to let go of this junk. We loaded up the truck with a nice size load and DH is currently on his way to the dump as we speak. We'll do this again next weekend and will continue to do this till all the junk and clutter is gone.

Yeah, I think my son is. He can grow an attachment to the strangest, most mundane things. I mean, old broken toys, things you think of as trash....I think he attaches good memories to them, and hates to throw them away.

We've worked on this with him.
