Packrat, packrat, packrat! laugh.gif My daughter and I had been cleaning up for Christmas, and found stuff from last Christmas that never got put away! It's not unsanitary around here, just very, very, cluttered! tongue.gif

For some reason, this suprises me! I had you pegged for a sweeper, hands-down!

I am descended from a long line of packrats. In my house we have a lot of books that I especially can't get rid of, old tapes, magazines that are from at least last year. Although every once in a while the my parents go on a cleaning sweep and we clean the house.

(I've found some pretty creative ways to save things from the trash bags, too.) I LOVE hearing about being reimbursed $350!! Way to go!! thumbup.gif beer_mug.gif

Packrat definately, I save everything. Actually, it's about time to go through the house and just start tossing, lol.

I do the book thing too, though I have read most of mine, on another board that I post on, some of the ladies are starting a book exchange, I sent them my list, lol, of 165.....and I have almost 300 other books, those were just the ones I didn't want anymore!

I'm on the fence.

Packrat: books, music, personal mementos

Sweeper: everything else.
In fact, I would just love to drop off a dumpster at my house and fill it with all the pooh.gif that is taking up space around the house. My wife has magazines that are 30+ years old.

Definitely a packrat, especially when it come to parts for my cars. I have just listed items on cars I have sold over 5 years ago. If I lived in a house or had a garage it wouldn't be so bad, but, I live in an apartment. I am so pathetic! HELP!!!!!

You just described me, Vettegall. laugh.gif I try not to gather too much crap, but I have so many more plans than time or drive to cary them out. I have a spare tranny for my truck and car, a set of alloys for a car I've never had, a box full of extra parts for my truck, should an alternator or starter go. I even have my old spark plug wires on the wall, in case one blows. tongue.gif

My garage has more parts than cars to take them.

I USED to be a packrat. However, we have moved SO many times over recent years that I am a sweeper, now. Anything other than pictures or other small objects that haven't been used in a year are dumped.....WAIT!! Don't touch my fishing tackle!!!! angel_not.gif

fishing tackle? That stuff is worth a fortune if you throw any throw it my way would ya?
Do you ever think we might use it "speaking in terms of anything you throw out?" I can't seem to get over that hurdle. smile.gif
