goodness knows!
Compulsive hoarding - NHS Choices

"Compulsive hoarding means excessively acquiring items that appear of little or no value and not being able to throw them away, resulting in unmanageable amounts of clutter."

Do you have a tendency to hoard things?

Sorry to hear about your struggles amathus. I have seen others on tv. Maybe you can get counseling?

OMG definately YES - I have promised not to do it again ever, it took so long to throw away and clean - its just not worth it. I am going to sell the stuff on the nearly new market - I have hundreds of shoes and clothes - I am ashamed of myself!

i have a problem with collecting things, but i found that i can channel it into virtual collection- such as collecting images on pinterest, or achievements in a game, or pokemon- and keep my space clean, even though virtual collection drives me up the wall just as much sometimes.
