I found so manv things I wondered whv we kept *nd then decided to oo throunh some accumulation in this house. I have torn- to the conclusion that our family is "hoarding conscious" and am reminded of a magazine *rtiele«" in which thw writer asked, "Are vou * hoarder?" Don't answer ton h*«tilyr the hoarding instinct run* de»n in the human trihe. How he would have reveled had he h<><»n with m* *>* I cleaned the ctoraae ron«i.
