5 Ways I am a Hoarder

Have you ever watched that show Hoarders? If you haven't you probably should. It always makes me feel better about my own hoarding tendencies. The Mr. is constantly nagging at me about all the crap I have.... and sometimes I do agree, so I've listed below the 5 ways in which I am a hoarder.

1.      I keep cooking utensils I've never used... and probably never will. Candy thermometer anyone? Turkey baster? Wait, the turkey baster could come in handy! bahahah!

2.      I keep hair accessories I have used in the past… When I was in the fifth grade and I wanted to be just like the Spice Girls. I mean, butterfly bobby pins are still cool, right? Anyone?

3.      I own more pairs of boots and shoes than anyone I have met. So much so that I have big plastic tubs filled with them. But, silver sparkly shoes from my sorority formal my sophomore year will make the perfect Halloween costume one day! I just know it!

4.      I keep half empty bottles of products that I hated. You never know when someone wants that sauve shampoo that you’ve used half of.

5.      When we moved I was embarrassed by the amount of boxes that I had filled with crap, so I moved them myself rather than having the movers do it. I still have no clue what are in some of the boxes and I packed them and moved them. #noshameinmyhoardinggame


  1. you and my husband would get along swimmingly. he is a hoarder to the bone. as in in once opened up the storage room and it was FILLED TO THE TOP of empty boxes.

    Vodka and Soda

  2. I decided to do a declutter two weekends ago and my living room is still covered in piles of things I don't know what to do with- cell phone chargers from five years ago? Internet routers?

  3. hahah the products one makes me laugh because i literally use zero beauty products and I have more in my bathroom than a salon! some are years old!!

  4. I do the same thing with products! Most of the time I think it's because I get tired of a product when they're still about 10% left in the bottle, so I buy something new but never throw the almost-gone bottle away! They really do pile up!

  5. I am a hoarder too. A month ago my husband "made" me go through my socks because I had two drawers FULL and a bag of brand new ones from Fred Meyers from Black Friday a couple of years ago. It's a problem that has taken over our storage unit.
    LOVING your new blog design!

  6. Thank you so much for realizing me that I'm a kind of hoarder! I have sparkly bobby pins that I bought from 2008's spring festival & ohhh some old wrapping sheets too!!


I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
