Definition of a hoarder

1.   A person who accumulates things and hides them away for future use.


2.   Acquiring and failing to throw out a large number of items that would appear to have little
      or no value to others.


3.   (Hoard) A hidden fund or supply stored for future use; a cache


4.   (Hoarding) The excessive acquisition of possessions (and failure to use or discard them).

In my mind, I have a "dream" closet - with a classy ottoman to sit on and a lovely chandelier hanging from the ceiling, perfectly designed shelves and cubbies for shoes and purses ... all empty!  I LOVE empty drawers and cupboards. Do you think this is taking it a bit too far?  


(Actually I just finished up an organizing job and these were leftovers that the client didn't need anymore and I figured they might come in handy for another job so I brought them home). But in the meantime, my garage is a little full! I have asked my husband to keep the garage door closed. Can you imagine what the neighbors will think? (Hoarder!)

The closet sounds lovely! As for the garage, you should see mine. Unfortunately I REALLY need to keep the door closed! There is always a project going on down there. :)

I'm sure you will use them - it's storing them until then that is the problem! ;-)

I thought I was looking at an isle from Target..just kidding. You will be very organized for ever with all those. I will take the beautiful black bamboo chair off your hands if you need. I am in search of one of those!
