Do you collect anything?

I was surfing the 'net and came across this article about people collecting "things."

Collecting can destroy your life .

Makes me wonder if I would ever be capable of taking a collection this far?!?

Okay, no, I don't believe I would because I am becoming the person that wants things put away. We have a small place so with the toys and other stuff out it always looks cluttered here.

At least once a day I trip over something. Swear at myself for not buying a bigger place when I had a chance, and then telling myself that one day we will have a bigger home (I can only hope, though I don't see it in the reality realm). Not so we can have more "stuff" but just to be able to move around more freely and having it look more neat in here.

Do you think that if you had the room you could become a hoarder?

What would you hoard??

I am like the opposite of a hoarder. I am a thrower! But if I could hoard something it would be purses. And shoes. ;)

I like to throw too, but then I like to save!!! I wish I could have a big room just for storage! I save memorbilia - Emily's important school papers, letters, drawings, etc, but that is all I save!

I know I'll be saving all of Em's stuff. If we are able to ever buy a bigger place I want it to have a finished basement so I can store all the important stuff there.

I agree with The Girl Next Door Grows Up - I would save everything from my kids as babies and toddlers. That and all the art projects, i have a hard time trhwoing that stuff away!
