Confessions of a hoarder………… February 21, 2013

Filed under: hoarding,lifestyle — katiepede @ 6:02 pm

Ok, so I am not about to appear on a hoarding TV show any time soon, I have enough space to cook, sit, sleep etc…. But, I am acutely aware that I have hoarding tendencies. I find parting with things very emotive, and I can find some sentimental connection with almost anything. With my MS diagnosis last year I have struggled to relinquish control of things, and I know the tendency to hoard has become a little worse. So I have made a very conscious decision to try and reduce my clutter….. I figure that a less cluttered house = a less cluttered mind….. 🙂


Anyhooo today I finally gave the six bags of stuff that I have collected over the last few weeks to charity! HUZZAH! It wasn’t easy, and over the weeks of collecting, several of the things that went into the bags were subsequently removed, added again, and then removed. (And errm two things from the bags made it back into the car boot in the last few seconds) Oooops! However, I still managed to get rid of a lot, and I feel so much better now. I must keep going on my de-cluttering journey…..

(More room for house plants)?…………………. 😉


Does anybody else find it hard to part with ‘stuff’?……



Happy Planting 🙂
