Is anyone a hoarder?

My friend shops so much. Her basement is full of stuff . She is a hoarder but a neat hoarder- in fact her OCD would take the form of being a perfect hoarder lol

I am a collector. Everything I have been interested in becomes a desire to own it all. I collect.

My son who has seen this for his life, told me a few years ago, "a collector is a hoarder who thinks their stuff is worth something" .. and I hate to say it but I think he is right.

My wife is a collector of a huge range of things, and has gone through many phases, cassette tapes records, then DVD's now coffee mugs, cook books at one stage, although she never cooks anything except basic meals, she knows she can if she had time..and of course newspapers, because she never has enough time to read them all and there might be something worth reading in it.
