I am not quite a hoarder, except of fabric! (I am a quilter...) but my Gran was sort of borderline, I think. Mom had a hard time when Gran had to go into a senior's residence, because Gran didn't want to get rid of anything, including a bag of old flannel sheets that hadn't seen a bed for probably 10 years! (I inherited them, they are doing business as thinner quilt battings on summer weight quilts, and some will be used in table runners that you want to lie flat.) I have been seriously going through stuff every time I clean, and thinking about when I have to go into the home and who will get stuck with all that job as I have no family! One "rule" I am trying to go by is "do I love it?" If the answer is no, not really, even though I like it quite a bit, then it has to go. I have a long way to go, but my clutter isn't really that bad and I sure don't want it to get that way. It's hard to give away things Mom gave me (she passed away 8 years ago) but really, it's just stuff, and she's not here to know if I have it or not so... I will take a picture, and send it off to bless someone else!
