I am! My mother-in-law is a saver and her cousin was a "collector" of books and records. When her cousin died, the first thing his wife did was get rid of all the books he had. I do not know how she did it all those years. There was a path way in their house to get from the kitchen to the living room. Books on shelves filled the rooms and hallways. It was like a very disorganized library.How many of us are rethinking what all we are hanging onto?

I am!! My mother was a hoarder. Her mother, we believe had OCD. My sister is a semi-hoarder. I have small tendencies towards keeping stuff and being ocd'ish. But both my kids ... DD29 was as a child hoarding but in her teen years, we took everything out, painted, new curtains, carpet, etc and then really purged and only put back into her room the essentials. After that, she was pretty good, had to fight it and when stuff got out of hand a little, she was on it and doing a clean and purge. My DS17 ... has extreme OCD (hoarding in the same mental illness family as OCD).I've been reading through the posts and trying to catch up. After reading the May posts of decluttering and seeing how many are dealing with people's stuff after their passing....it prompted this question.
