There is a show on Tv about this, or there was at one time, I watched it once or twice, but it made me nauseous to see how bad some people really were in the hoarding situation. Are you a hoarder?? I like to keep things, but I am a very organized person and everything has it's place. I have a lot of stuff, that's why I live in a 3 bedroom, I need this room But I am not a hoarder. I don't keep countless copies of newspapers, or empty water bottles or toothpicks, new or used...all of my things are sentimental or needed or expensive or are family items, they just wouldn't fit into the hoarding category. Wonder what makes a person a hoarder?? They say it's something mental with them, and some can get help- according to the show. If you are not a hoarder, do you know of anyone who is??
