Clearly I Need An Intervention


Just take a look at this picture. I never thought I had hoarding tendencies, but the proof is in the photo. I found all these while packing up the house. And truth be told, there were more of them that I was too embarrassed to add to the pic. My kids are 22, 20, and 18—why do I have all these?????




I think I need therapy.

What silly thing do you hoard?

I think I've got a couple of these too and my kids are older than yours! Not by much but still.

I think I'm going to say picture books. Not really a "silly" thing but there are no grandchildren, now or in the foreseeable future, but I still buy them.

Picture books are still books and books are necessary for a full and rich life. I still buy picture books too. No children or grandchildren here either.

Tupperware containers. I could open a store.

I just threw out dishes from old microwave meals. My husband thought I should have saved them.

Love this. I also seem to collect these things. You never know, right?

Just to give you some credit, sometimes we unintentionally hold onto stuff. Did you realize you still had them or were you surprised to find them? And two, did you pack them to take with you? If yes, then maybe an intervention is in order. :) Happy moving!

And I am clueless what they are. My boyfriend is a hoarder. Only when I ask about something, he throws it away. So, I just pick it up and throw it away myself now. Almost like he is too lazy to pick it up and throw it away, like empty boxes, so I think we still have that thing, and we don't. I can get very mad about that at times. Throw it away, let me know I need to buy a new one.

Those kinds of things just get pushed to the back and sort of ignored. To Aurian - those are medicine dosers used for children who are too young to take pills or use spoons.
