I started this group because I could not believe I was the only one struggling with acquiring and not letting go easily.
It takes courage to choose to manage one's life and surroundings.
Good for you!
I'm glad you think the group is a good fit for you. I think so too :)

Change yourself. You are in control.

Happiness is when what you think, say, and do are in harmony.

I believe there are various degrees of hoarding. I am not a hoarder like those featured on the TV shows, but I have more stuff piled up than most people I know. We work on decluttering and on reducing our tendency to accumulate more on this team and discuss why we cling to our things. It helps to have support from people who understand a little of what you're dealing with.

I am not an "official" hoarder, but I can see where I may have that tendancy. I went thru a horrible divorce/mess about 9 yrs. ago- husband was alcoholic and we lost everything- home, business, etc. (He didn't pay taxes- unbeknownst to me). So what was left, my furniture, etc.- I just "cling" to- it's all I have. I already was a "keeper" so this just brought it out worse. I don't hoard, but I can see I keep getting "stuff" and can't let go of anything most of the time. I have been working on getting rid of some old clothes and have actually managed to clear that out a bit. But I can see I need to work on this. I ran across this group and thought- this might be what I need? Or perhaps you know of other groups that I would fit into better- I need to "de-clutter" at this point and need to find the strength to do it.
