    Own up, who's a hoarder?

    I must admit I am, i find it difficult to throw anything away, one of those "it'll come in handy one day" and a lot of the time it does, eventually.

    My worst hoarding is probably boxes, i keep boxes for everything, PVR, DVD, Computer, Mobo, Graphics, Camera, Console, everything. All helps the resale value.

    yes always keep the boxes in case they need to be returned under warranty or for resale to improve the value

    Once a year or so I check if I still have the item then bin the box if I don't

    oh and cables and plug in PSUs - don't go there

    Argh, don't tell me about wires and cables, I've got millions of the bleeders, both plugged into various things and some in a big box as well. Can never find a kettle lead or figure of 8 power lead though, the useful ones, they seem to go missing!

    I think all men are the same, I keep meaning to have a clear out but when it comes to it I just don't have the heart to throw anything away as one day I know i'll need it lol

    My Mum and Nan are terrible, anything not used for 5 mins goes in the bin, charity shop or car boot sale. I remember i had a car boot and they were sneaking books into the bin because "they were a bit tatty!" I left some stuff at home when i came to uni and it's all gone missing! And i don't know about you lot, but i always get an "I never touched it" and then later when they are sussed out, an "Ohhh that"

    were you one ?:w00t:

    yeah , I was waiting for the Ex Hoarders thread though tbh:whistling:

    If it ain't used for longer than a day, in the bin it goes!

    Just spent the last 3 hours sorting out all the cupboards and spare room. Just ended up moving it to the garden in a huge "for the dump" pile, which will probably be there till next month.

    I keep all my boxes for things too, just in case i sell it or need to store it in the loft.

    OH has a habit of keeping spare monitors, keyboards, network cables and random PC bits just in case he needs to build a few PC's in an emergency! Drives me mad!

    Ive always been one for keeping loads of **** however I am getting better. I like others used to keep the boxes for things incase of sending it back or selling it on, but soon realised I wont sell it on, and if it breaks I'll just send it back in whatever I have to hand so I stopped keeping them.

    Ive still got loads of **** though... wires and computer parts are the worst.

    I love my junk!

    i hoard too:oops:
