I’m not going to deny that I have hoarding tendencies. When I moved, I had serious qualms about throwing away my SIX old iPhone Boxes that I had kept for God knows what reasons. But the difference between me and those people you see on TV is that I did throw them out and I did get over it. Like, immediately (who the hell keeps six iPhone boxes? No wonder I was always so depressed about having a blackberry!)
My roommate asked me as we sat planning our decor in early June if we had a problem in terms of our “stuff”. We settled on the favorable answer (no) and then got to work on the closet. “Okay…” I said “maybe … Wardrobe Hoarders?”
Yeah… When it comes to the closet, there’s no stopping me. Lucky for us, there’s no stopping her either so it works out quite nicely (an entire room as a closet? We both agreed this was a good idea). It’s interesting, though, that we laugh at this. Sure, we’re both semi-financially-independent (bank of Mom and Dad not included), we make sure we have rent money and we buy cheap toilet paper (just how cheap, you ask? Don’t ask.) but we have all the classic signs of being true addicts.
What are the signs of a shopaholic/ wardrobe hoarder? Ah, allow me.
This old thing? I’ve had it for ages! In fact, I think there’s a picture of me wearing it like 5 years ago!
Oh, I couldn’t possibly toss this. My great Grandmother left it to me in her will and it’s real vintage!
New? Why yes, yes it is! But I got it at Value Village for 5 bucks!
This? Oh I wear it alright! In fact, I was planning on wearing it tomorrow
I’m not a hoarder, look! This is perfectly reasonable.
Yep. Nothing to worry about here.
