Im somewhere in between. There are things that I don't use at the moment, but think 'oh, but I might need/want them in the future'. Then there are things that I will get rid of because I'm fed up with clutter. The problem is, with three of us in the house, all the things I would get rid of because they are not used, my parents won't get rid of.
I am most definitely not a hoarder, I have no trouble chucking stuff out. I don't always have a perfectly tidy house, but I have a sense of urgency to throw things out because I once lived with a hoarder and that was very depressing and overwhelming.
I do have about 6 boxes, with the most important things carried down from family, but they fit into the wardrobe up the top.
I hate hoarding, and have clean outs every year of clothes ect.
I get confused to see clutter people keep, and I would have to say
it would be impossible to hoard for me.
Every thing has to be in a clean order.
I am definitely not a hoarder, completely the opposite....to the point where I have sometimes regretted it as have wanted something I have chucked out or recycled..eg .it may have come back into fashion
No, but my wife thinks so.
I have always purchased things that I think may come of use later.
Or needed later.
For example I collect books and have found later in life that I have more time to sit and read them, I tend to purchase Non Fiction Books although do enjoy the few sci-Fi books that I have bought.
I also have a good selection of DVDs, I always thought perhaps when I am older and no longer earning that I would have these things to keep me entertained ( I may not be able to afford such things later on when retired.
Sadly wives tend to frown upon this and call it hoarding.
Men and women truely have different values ( or do they).
I have some gorgeous collections,and in the past have definitely been somewhat of a hoarder,but I am now only acquiring things I really love or wish to add to my treasures.I guess I am still a bit guilty of hoarding though!!! I do tend to find uses for my 'stuff' though,so it does get a second life!
anyone who enters my place is bound to think it, but I don't have any true rubbish anywhere, just a lot of unsorted stuff. I do have regular tidy ups but only when I have time to focus on it, and then to know where I move the things to!
I am one of the half and half group. I was more of a hoarder in the past but no where near as bad as what you see on those TV shows! As time goes by I am less of a hoarder. I do like to keep some letters and cards which have sentimental value. I hold onto some things. There are things I have ditched which I wish I had kept.
I am somewhere in between. If I add to my collections they will start to look cluttered so that is reason enough to admire things these days but not buy! I do an annual spring clean especially with clothes that i haven't worn in a while.
I think im a hoarder but not like in the photo or on tv when you can't get in the room. I have these brilliant ideas sometimes like inventions and I feel I need these things for that reason. It comforts me also. When my mom died I ended up with all her ornaments I can't bear to let them go. They are of no use to me but like I say a comfort to me. I also have a shadow box loaded with mum s glass figurines. I know my house looks old fashioned but I am the one that lives in it.
