How is it that over all my years of being alive i have accumulated so much stuff? Yesterday i was going through things I have kept and wondered why?..Was it sentimental?..or am i secretly a squirrel? So today will be day 2 of cleaning and tossing and wondering which friend needs a box to live in..Irish, Michael, Unky Greggy,Sconi,TexanTornado,Topffer,thesids,Unforgettable raja,P1ke, and numerous others?? Come on by and pick up your memento of me and hope it helps through the cold winter..

I am also getting rid of things accumulated during the years. I am probably also an ant or a squirrel more than a cicada. I will gladly fill one of your boxes with various stuff.

@Rosekitty I think about it! We moved south using a 52 foot long moving van that was packed to the gills. I think about how much it cost!

George Carlin said that's why you buy a bigger house. Cause you have too much $h1t. You buy a bigger house so you need more $h1t to put in it. I have too much stuff as it is. And too small of a house. No room. Though I am glad you are getting rid of what you don't need. I'd really hate to see you featured on an episode of Hoarders.

@Rosekitty I think my husband has hoarder personality disorder and if he could he would save everything in case he ever needed it. Cause you never know. All those air bags from Amazon shipping will save us from buying stuff down the road.

I have a lot too. I guess I have more than I should, and one of these days, I will have to see what I can dispose of, and things I can keep. It is amazing how much you can accumulate over the years though.

@Rosekitty I could end up with one of those too, as I have more things than I really need, and I suppose, more for sentimental reasons than anything else.

LOL. Nice post. I think I have outgrown myself also. In more ways than one I might add. I not only accumulated too many things, but I have gained weight as well. I am in the process of losing weight now and I will be getting to cleaning things out. I will do some spring cleaning this fall. When the weather cools down.

I think we all have a bit of 'hoarder' in us. I was looking for something the other day, and ran across a whole bunch of other stuff. Stuff that basically is just taking up room. Did I throw anything away? Nope, just too lazy. Oh oh oh.. You have a prezzie for me? How sweet of you. Ok, that means road trip.

@Rosekitty I think some is as you said sentimental and other things I think it's a mentality of, 'I might use or need that for something', and it just accumulates. I took me an almost 2 hour nap myself today. Well, don't stand too close to the stove.
