"My mother is insane" You got 1/2 those genes Jr! :)


My mother isn't this bad, but I definitely inherited my ability to hide things 10:1 in closets, under beds, etc... from her.

I don't have the mental issue where I get lost mentally in the item itself, but I do have some overwhelming desire to own anything I think I can later sell for more money at some time in the future. (The problem comes in where I never feel like selling the items)

Fortunately my desire for a clean house overcomes the desire to collect junk, and I don't think I'll ever order something and then not open the package.

What I see there though is a LOT OF MONEY spent on lame stuff. That old gal is probably a couldabeen millionaire.

This obsessive behaviour is so bizarre, yet so real. Everyone knows a crazy cat lady with 40 cats (or at least every Iowan town has one) and we all know someone who can't stop gambling or using their credit card at the mall.

I first saw this page a year ago and was amazed, but just imagine how many people live like this behind closed doors and are literally miserable in the own mess they've created, yet they can't stop themselves.

Luckily I have enough normalcy to curb my willingness to own 1000 of anything.

Sounds like you're well on "this" side of the line!

I wonder if the photos would have a sobering effect on the lady in question? Has he dared show them to her?


Bender OK -- for now

collecting can get out of hand - if you're collecting merely because you believe an item 'is worth alot of money' or 'will be worth alot of money someday', that's the worst reason to collect it.

I collect any number of things, but I love everything I have, and I'm constantly reaccessing my collections, purging and/or selling, so it never gets outta hand. I'm much more selective than I use to be, and I usually don't buy something unless I have a specific spot for it (and on the floor in a box ain't the spot), or for the express purpose of selling it IMMEDIATELY.

Personally, the best part of collecting is the hunt, which is why I don't like to buy alot on ebay.

Best find this year: a 45 cent Kelbo mug bought at a thrift store that sold on ebay for 90 bucks!
