How much of a Hoarder are you?


Find out by having a look at the following statements and see which ones apply to you:


  1. You’ve kept all of your school exercise books – you never know when you might need them.
  2. In your kitchen cupboards there are tins and packets of food way past their sell by dates, and let’s not go near the spice rack!
  3. 12 months ago you made a pile of papers marked ‘urgent action’ – and they are as yet untouched.
  4. There is a shelf in your bathroom full of miniature bottles of shower gel, shampoo etc. that you’ve purloined from hotel rooms.
  5. You have an overflowing drawer in the kitchen where you stuff plastic carrier bags.
  6. You have a box of videotapes just waiting to be watched sometime.
  7. Somewhere in your wardrobe there is that two sizes too small pair of jeans and band tour t-shirt from your younger days…
  8. You love ‘buy one get one free’ offers – you never know when you made need all those bottles of bleach.
  9. You have gifts for people stashed all over the place that you haven’t given because you forgot you had them.
  10. That computer that broke three years ago – you will have it fixed one day.

If at least 5 of these statements describe you and your home then it’s probably time you got a handle on your clutter.  Have a look at my blog ‘How to de-clutter your wardrobe’ for some tips to get you started, or see this great article on the Good Housekeeping website for some other ideas.
