Not a hoarder :)

I'm reading a fascinating book on hoarding called, "Stuff". It is so interesting. Some people could even use a life insurance quote to use for all of their stuff falling onto their kids ! And it has the added benefit of inspiring me to take a break from reading and get rid of stuff. I told my mom that I think I'm the opposite of a hoarder, more of a purger. I feel the best after I have sorted through a certain area, bagged up stuff to donate, then actually take it to Goodwill or wherever it needs to go. That last part is key, actually getting it out of my space. It feels so freeing. So, before work today, I went to the used book store to trade in books, dropped off a sack of hand me downs to a friend and then took bags to Goodwill. I can breathe easier now :)

I am a purger, like you! My dad is a hoarder, I'm sure. Our garage is filled with bits and pieces like old seat belts, random hubcaps, pieces of wood, several coveralls, floorboards from a 1987 Ford Escort (no, I'm not joking), et cetera.

But me? I like to get rid of stuff. I clean out my closet at least once a year. :)
