Last night I watched the series premier of Hoarders on A&E. A show about compulsive hoarders, people who keep any and everything because they simply cant bear to part with it.
Wikipedia describes it as:
Compulsive hoarding (or pathological hoarding) is the acquisition of, and failure to use or discard, such a large number of seemingly useless possessions that it causes significant clutter and impairment to basic living activities such as mobility, cooking, cleaning, showering or sleeping. A person who engages in compulsive hoarding is commonly said to be a "pack rat", in reference to that animal's apparent fondness for material objects.
Anyway after watching the show and seeing some of the nastiest images of living conditions I have ever seen in the western world I have come to the conclusion that I need to throw things away more!
Here are some images of hoarding I found online.
Its no where as bad as those on the show who couldn't even walk through the house because "stuff" covered the floors. I simply have one room that has a lot of things from my old condo in boxes. Kinda like a storage room. I keep things because I "may" need them one day but screw that shit I'm throwing everything out this month.
There is no way in hell I'm becoming like them!
Its weird because the rest of my house is uncluttered & minimalistic but its that one room! Doesn't everyone have one room they use as storage?
Anyone want a FREE 42" Samsung TV? lol ... no seriously if you're in the Toronto area email me!
Operation clean up is underway!
