How much is too much stuff?

15/02/2017



Ask yourself questions like ‘Do I, or someone I know have..: 

1. problems using rooms because they are cluttered with stuff?
2. so many things and can’t seem to throw things out like other people do?
3. a problem with collecting things or buying much more than needed?
4. an attachment to things that can’t be without?
5. disrupted relationships with family, friends, neighbours and authorities due to collecting and clutter? 

As hoarding disorder is an illness, the person might not see they have a problem because they can’t think clearly about the objects and possessions that have so much meaning for them. This may lead to avoidance of social contacts and the onset of other serious concerns like squalor,
self neglect and high risk of fire.
