For this week’s post, I chose prompt 2.) If you were a hoarder, based on your personality…what would you hoard? (better yet, ask someone who knows you well, what they think you would hoard).
Hoarding is in my genes. My mom could easily slip into full on hoarding (sorry Mom). She has accumulated plenty of stuff over the years that she finds difficult to part with. So naturally I tend to keep too much as well. But I also make a purposeful effort to purge as often as possible.
If I were to succumb to my hoarding tendencies I would probably hoard paper. I have this crazy fear that something I recycle is going to later become useful. I am especially bad about kids’ school papers. I have everything from each year saved and think that somehow I will have time to go through it and just keep some cute pieces representative of that year of school.
So I I were a hoarder (or more of a hoarder is more accurate), we would all be buried by mounds of paper from floor to ceiling. We could use the paper as blankets. We could use the paper as furniture. There would be so much paper everywhere.
And I would think each piece is important in some way.
Now if you looked at my house, you would probably think I am a toy hoarder. Alas, that is due to the hoarding tendencies of my offspring.
See, it is in the genes.
So what would you hoard?
