A topic raised in our last Canadian Quick Question (regarding deal limits) was hoarding. A few of our SC readers commented that people who clear the shelves are “hoarders”. There is a fine line between stockpiling and hoarding and it appears that line is different for everyone. Some feel people are hoarders when they take more than they need. Others feel hoarding is when the stuff in your home begins to interfere in your daily living. And finally, some feel hoarding is when your living space is both cluttered and unsanitary.
When do you feel someone has become a hoarder? Is someone a hoarder when they purchase more than they need or does their home need to be packed to the ceiling with junk? Let us know!
