I am a hoarder but not a real bad one. I have started going through my STUFF and trying to thin it out as my wife keeps reminding me that she doesn't know what's good and what isn't. If something happens to me she will be stressed enough without having to deal with it all. I closed my business several years ago and still have boxes of stuff that I haven't looked through in years. Some new and some used. I get stressed trying to figure out what to get rid of. LOL Jackie B.
The title bugs me. Hoarders usually keep things of some value, I recall the term from coin collecting, where people who have barrels of coins squirreled away. A lot of us also probably hoard spent shells or primers.
The folks on the show Hoarders, keep garbage, usually. I'd say they are slobs or dirtbags, not hoarders.
Devi where you been? Anyhow the worst part about hoarding.... after all the shelves in the garage are full of junk.... The hard drive on the computer is filling up with pics. Some I like, some I just keep. Does anybody know where/what this pic is ??
At Fort Sill Oklahoma I was in charge of supply of my unit. My nick name was "the pack rat". When soldiers were being processed to go back home, I would trade smokes for Field Army jackets, combat boots, uniforms, anything that I could resell. One day my CO started calling me Bilko as I held the rank of E5. I can not begin to tell you the great time I had. Then one day I was transfered to be a company clerk in headquarters. That was a good job too, but best job I ever had was being in charge of supply. 39 years later I am still a pack rat. You never know when you will need something, so I do not like to throw out anything of value.
