I grew up with my mother saving everything. My dad used to joke around about her being a pack rat. It was cute, when I was a kid. Now I am an adult and it is actually causing friction at home, in the home, with myself, my husband and I definately don’t want my kids to learn not to throw anything away.
The problem with this? The problem is that if it is broken, it is in the trash. If it didn’t make it to the trash, then it means it is perfectly fine. Why would I throw away perfectly good stuff?
I have held onto everything from toys, books, clothes, baby furniture and all baby stuff. I’m not planning on having anymore children.
I have held onto all this stuff because I figured that someone could use it.
I don’t know how to get rid of stuff and it has taken over my basement, garage and miscellaneous clutter around the house.
Just wondering what everyone with or without a hoarding issue does with your stuff and how to conquer this.
