Hoarderes: Is there anything that you hoard around the house?

I'm watching the show Hoarders on A&E right now and I can't believe some of the things that some people are hoarding. This one lady is hoarding really old food all over her house, including a rotting pumpkin on her livingroom floor. So I got to wondering, are there any hoarders out there? What do you have a lot of in your house? I must say I have a lot of packages of diapers and wipes for my son but when I see a great sale on them what can I do. And they are something that I am going to be using. Tell me about what you hoard or stockpile at your house.

I have seen the show "Hoarders" and can't believe people let their homes get to that point. I just watched Oprah and she had a few people on that had been on the A&E show and it was just so disgusting. Its not a matter of cleaning the mess and keeping on top of it. It alot deeper problem thats happening. Some doctor said it was a form of mental illness. I don't really hoard anything because I love a clean spotless house. However, my mom is not has bad as the people on either show but she finds it hard to throw things away. It could be worse though if she was going out to shop everyday.

My friend's grandmother is a bit of a Hoarder, not nearly as bad as the people on the show but she keeps some odd things, like empty jars. She lived through WW2 and says that it's hard for her to get rid of things that were hard to come by during those days. She does get rid of stuff though so really it isn't too bad.

Oprah had hoarders on her program today too. It's really sad that people do this. It is a sign of deeper problems. I'm not a hoarder but have a son that very well could be. He likes to bring home any thing that might have a use. He hasn't gotten near as bad as those seen on A&E or Oprah. If I have no use for it with in a year it is out of here. I don't like that kind of clutter. In fact I'm sorting and getting rid of things now.

So weird because I just passed by Oprah and the people that are on her show were the second ones featured on the episode of Hoarders that I watched this morning. I declutter with the season changes. I figure if I have to get different clothes out I might as well do a good cleaning too. We don't keep too much clutter around the house usually.

Paper and pens. I could supply and entire school for at least a year. I know that I am horrible at this, and yet I always want more. It is an obsession. I even have boxes in a storage unit I pay for. My family is sure that someday I will be on a television show about the woman with the most paper in the world. So I get it. Some of us have quirks!
