Am I A Hoarder?!

Yep..So I need some insight. I think I might have a problem. I think I may be a "baby" hoarder. I say "baby" hoarder as opposed to a regular full grown hoarder because I am not like pooping in  the only open corner of my bedroom nor do I have cat carcasses hidden among a mess. I just have a lot of stuff and I have a hard time getting rid of old stuff to make room for the new. And no I don't collect garbage or have trouble throwing trash out. I am clean but just cluttered with lots of nice and useful items.

One of the biggest issues is clothing. I legit have clothes that is ten years old. What's even crazier than that is the fact that some still have the tags on them. The other clothing issue is that my weight flucuates and I am pretty sure I own about 6 different sizes. I am still hopeful that I will be super skinny again and don't want to get rid of the awesome clothes that have never been worn so when I do lose that weight I will have awesome stuff without spending a dime. Silly I know because everyone tells me if I lose that much weight I will want to go out and buy a completely new wardrobe. I just have trouble parting with fabulous stuff.

The next issue is the fact that I am an avid crafter. I actually make a pretty good living selling my creations and I feel like I might need everything eventually for some sort of project. What project? I don't know but every item could be used for "some" possible project. I threw out tons of stuff once and then sure enough a week later I could have used some of the things I threw out. This really bothered me.

Finally and this is going to sound super strange I have an obsession with things in bulk. As far as clothing goes it I find a perfect top I need it in every color or if it's only available in one color it takes every ounce of strength not to buy a second. But this obsession goes with other things as well such as let's say pens. If I needed pens I wouldn't just go out and buy a normal pack of BIC I would go to Office Max and get the box of pens that was enough for a whole office. And forget like Sam's Club or Price Club, going in there is my dream. Everything in bulk!! Sigh...What the "f" is wrong with me?!

So are there any other borderline hoarders out there in blogging land? Please tell me I am not the only one with this weird issue. If I am, don't worry your pretty little heads because I assure you my place does not look like this:

Now that you can breathe a little easier, have a happy Monday!! xoxo


  1. Hahaha! My husband thinks I'm a hoarder. When we were packing up my house just before we got married and we moved in together, he narrated my packing like an episode of Hoarders. :) I think it comes with having hobbies that require things. Don't worry... you're not alone!

  2. I'm the same way with clothes! I probably only wear about half of what I have, but I hold onto things just in case I need them someday. I also keep sentimental things. I have middle school notes and birthday cards from as far back as elementary school because I don't want to get rid of them.

  3. I am a borderline hoarder too. I hate it! My closet is a good size and in the going on 4 years we've lived at our house I've filled it up to the point where it's tight but I know there are things I should be getting rid of. I just don't want to! I also get obsessed with buying things in multiple colors and then when I get one thing I often feel like I need to get something else to wear with it. We need a support group!!

  4. SO wish you on the clothes! I hate partying with ANY clothing item... it's like letting go of a CHILD!
