    I don't like throwing things away. It's annoying. It's much more convenient to leave things as they were. I only throw away stuff when they become more annoying than the act of disposing them.

    Guess what my fridge looks (or smells) like.

    Ummm, I can't seem to get rid of information of any kind that I may or may not need if there is even the slightest possibility that I might need it in the future and see as how anything is possible...

    Absolutely. If it isn't useful now or there is even a suspicion that it may not be completely necessary for something then it is taking up valuable space and keep-track-of-it effort.

    Agree .. On the occasions i have thrown things away .. i have later told myself that would be handy about now .. But i know where everything is and i wouldn't dare leave things lying around like DVD's etc .. They may get scratched and that's just a waste of money then.

    The doubt in my mind is always, "I may be able to use this later...This may come in handy some day," and if I can find the slightest chance of future usefulness, I keep it. This means I keep so many things that I probably couldn't find them if I'd need them, and also I'd forget that I had kept it in the first place
    I agree with that. I also agree with what Recoleta said. Every now and then I go through and deep clean everything and get rid of (or give away) things I am absolutely certain I won't need or use. But I keep most everything.

    I throw alot away. I mean, I'm not wasteful as far as that stuff goes. In fact, I have alot of junk that CAN'T be thrown away because of environmental issues. I'm not a packrat though. I've thrown things away and regreted it too though, and if I absolutely MUST have it, I will reluctantly go buy it again. The good thing about that is, it's usually cheaper the second time you buy it! But yeah, if you just let stuff chill out it eventually becomes too much baggage and too much to keep organized... and I "love" organzing! If I have a hint that I will be using something again, then yes, I will keep it somewhere "out of sight out of mind".

    My dad is a packrat and it drives me insane... SOO much junk. I mean, I can understand saving small things if they have some sentimental value, but he saves EVERYTHING! He has cars, car parts, tractors, anything all the way down to old PDA's.
