The H Word

Ebay has turned me into a hoarder. You don't believe me? Well, I have proof. My inventory has spilled all over my house. I'm running out of room to place it. And to make matters worse, we will be moving into a smaller house soon. What am I to do? I could start a burn pile but that isn't very helpful now is it?

The worse area has to be the basement. Since I don't see it that often, it gets the most neglect. However, since it smells musty down there, I can only store a small amount of inventory.

The Christmas tree, candles and weight stuff are not for sale but everything else is.

I only have one closet available. Since my hubby smokes in the back bedroom, I do not use that closet. This closet is off my living room and it also has a door in the back for the other bedroom. Behind the black curtain on the right is 6 shelves of inventory.

I also use the shelves in Ryker's room.

The cupboards in my kitchen along with the curio cabinet are over flowing.

My living room has been infected. The basket and container by the desk are items I need to list on Ebay. I got about four 18 gallon containers and two 32 gallon containers from a friend who got them from a storage locker but doesn't sell toys or plush. Pretty much all the stuff on my desk, except the computer, is for sale.

I almost forgot about the crawl space where I store my supplies.

Don't forget to look for me on the next episode of Hoarding: Buried Alive. (just kidding)


  1. That looks pretty tame to me. I can not for the life of me keep my sofa and dining room table clear of stuff. I have a whole room upstairs where one half is to list and the other corner is listed. So really 3/4 is to list and 1/4 is listed. I tell my family I'm a "hoarder in training"

  2. haha, actually that doesn't look that bad to me! i have a front room that I can't even walk in, it is so full of stuff. most of my stuff is boxes i got from my parents house and stuff i never unpacked when we moved a few years ago, which means i should throw it all away but i can't! but really, i wouldn't say you are even near hoard level.

  3. I agree...doesn't look that bad. I won't dare take a picture of my hoarding zones.

  4. Time to get listing. Think of that as cash and get it listed.

  5. It's a relief to see I'm not the only one with piles, lol, but how do you keep track of what's in the totes?

  6. Looks like your basement is valuable space. Have you thought about investing in a good dehumidifier? We have one in our basement that runs all the time and the hose goes into a drain in the floor. I see lots of potential if you get some shelving down there and use your up space.
