I haven’t watched this series of documentaries on Channel 4 but today I want to discuss hoarding. You might be asking, How did this topic come to mind? Well I am currently moving out of my uni house and back to Essex for summer and have an exhausting amount to pack! While going through my things and deciding what can come with me and what can be left for the dustbin men, a realisation crept up on me. I must admit that I am a hoarder.
The TV program looks at some incredibly extreme cases so please don’t expect my room to be stacked high with old magazines or my bed swamped with teddy bears (there are only three…). There are a few useless things that for some reason I find difficult to throw away. Warning: This is highly illogical so if you cannot comprehend this, I apologise.
Okay, I admit that's pretty bad - I'll try my hardest to throw all those old bits and bobs away in summer. Maybe I'm a bit too lazy.
If you can think of a practical use for them, please let me know! Otherwise I will probably force myself to dispose of them soon enough...
Are there any items you collect or keep that take up space or are completely unnecessary? Are you a bigger hoarder than I am?
